How to wear black and not look boring

How to wear black and not look boring

I don’t care what anyone says, but black is the new black. It is irreplaceably the most classic, the most timeless, and the most chic of all colors (can I even call it that?). It’s what you throw on when you’re having any doubts about anything at all! If you’re having a bad hair day – High ponytail, all black. If you’re feeling a little rounder around the edges – black from head to toe. If you simply have no idea what to wear but still want to look crisp and well put together?
