How to Wear All Black and Not Look Basic

As a New Yorker, I think it's in our DNA to gravitate towards all black looks. Black is a stable in my wardrobe. It's simple, chic, and timeless. An all black look is basic but doesn't have to look it. With key mixes you can take an all black look from boring to interesting.

How I Wore It:

1. Mixing Materials. Have fun with mixing materials and textures. Use pants like wax jeans, like these Vigoss jeans, or leather pants and pair it up with sueded boots. Try boots that are either knee high or over the knee. Mixing textures can give the look dimension.

2. Statement Coat. Use your coat to make your outfit pop. Pick a coat that is patterned or colorful.

3. Mixing Prints. I love using accessories to mix in prints with a look. Scarves are a great way to add color and prints to this look. Especially when you can wear the scarf with just your overall look.
