How To Pull Off Head-To-Toe Black

There’s nothing quite like basic black for creating a classic look – very Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. And it’s almost always slimming; the body-conscious cut of these Vince Ponte Pants ($210) and Splendid tank ($40) are all the more flattering in black monochrome.

There are a couple of ways to add a pop of color to an all-black outfit without disrupting the sleek line of an all-black ensemble. One, the statement necklace, brings attention up to the face while allowing you to steer the tone of your ensemble. The Quad Strand Necklace (center, $8.80) packs a ton of bright color into smaller beads. Subversive’s Celedon Tropical Treasure Necklace (right, $595) is the quintessential statement piece: artfully constructed, and there’s lots going on. If you love the Subversive line but can't fathom the hefty pricetag, opt for Target's version instead ($50).

If you’d rather focus on accessorizing your feet, go for shoes with some substance to add some color and texture to your monochromatic look. Steve Madden’s Tetra Wedges (left, were $79.95, now $59.95) are sophisticated but unexpected in green leather. These snake-print pumps (center, $295) are easy to pull off when your outfit doesn’t compete with the pattern. But if you’re looking to mimic Ms. Hepburn’s demure take and wear flats, J. Crew’s Tortoise Ballet Flats (right, $145) are an elegant option.
