Back to Black

If you looked up the colour black in a dictionary the words; classic, timeless, sophisticated and dramatic could most possibly all be in one sentence. It's the one colour that you can easily swing together an outfit in 30 seconds, but still look like you've planned it the night before. Why? Because black is simple yet the most elegant colour you could put on a woman. It shouts "I'm sexy" but whispers "I'm stylish" all with the colour. There's no hard thing about it, just layer the colour as simple as you like to create a chic silhouette. Forget about the worry of clashing colours, busy patterns and eye popping, face smacking tote bags, keep it minimal and opt for black. Trust me, searching for an outfit at the crack of dawn and being already 5 minuets late need no longer be a dilemma.
