Here is the fabulous Ms. Hilary Swank in Hollywood, CA. She is so stylish, yet approachable in this simple black on black ensemble.
We happen to believe that you can never go wrong in black. Why? Well, we all know it's slimming, but beyond that, black is what some call a "dichotomy color." That is, you can use it convey the serious and sophisticated you or the sexy and mysterious you. It all depends on the way you wear it.
For me, it’s “safety” thing. I always feel safe in the black, never risking being over- or underdressed. My motto? When in doubt, wear black. And in a worst case scenario, make the transition from work to evening by throwing on a fun, bright necklace.
Back to Hilary, though. Here, she keeps it simple and tailored. Recreate her classic look with these pointers: (1) Make sure your black items are not faded. If so, see new purchases below. (2) Make sure your pieces fit you perfectly. They should hug you in all the right places. Note: We said hug, not suffocate. Black can actually make you appear bigger when it's too tight, so be aware. (3) Show some skin. Opt for a neckline that's lower than your collarbone (to avoid looking uptight).
