Little Black Everything

Hey there! It’s Nnenna here from star-crossed smile and I’m so excited to be over here on Delayed Missives today! There is a stereotype that New Yorkers only wear black and there is no one I know who wears allover black better than Alex (for example, here and here).  With some great pieces in her closet, she is able to put together chic all-black outfits that are anything but boring. As a little tribute to Alex, I thought it would be fun to round up some inspiring street-style images of people who also nailed the all-black look.

The little details and the unexpected twists are what make these all-black looks special. Whether it is a pop of color, a sleek silhouette, metallic accents, or great accessories, each of these outfits have little something extra that make them stand out.

Tell me: Would you wear an all-black look? Many thanks to Alex for having me over here today! :)

    Ahh the all black outfit. I think it’s a classic look. I’ve done all black throughout my different various (fashion) stages in my life ever since I was able to buy my own clothes. Not so sure if I did it correctly, but I remember being comfortable when I did it. I haven’t done it in a while recently, but I’m sure I can since black is a staple color in my closet. I do agree that Alex does the all black look wonderfully with little details of her accessories. Great roundup of looks!
