It’s hard not to sing the praises of a head-to-toe black ensemble. It’s slimming, it’s chic, it’s simple to put together, and it resists getting dirty and staining. But if you find the concept of all-black-everything a bit blasé, there is one super-simple way to give it a little interest: Just add texture.
Wear a pair of black leather pants (or wax-coated jeans) with a soft black sweater; mix a lacy black dress with sleek boots; or try a smooth, black silk top and a ruffled black skirt. Even in the absence of color, adding different textures to the mix creates visual interest.
