I’m pretty sure black has been everyone’s favourite colour at some point. If not when they were a hormone-ridden teenager, then for sure whenever there’s a story on Victoria Beckham, the Olsen twins or Kate Moss. It’s pretty much the colour of the fashion elite, the same way red is for the Pope. And we all know that black can be sexy, edgy, moody or classic. But it does struggle a little with ‘girly’ and whatever your style, these are three all black looks to suit everyone, as a little outfit inspiration:
1. The Bodysuit
Universally flattering and a great excuse to wear a saucily cut version of a full body Spanx, bodysuits are always a great choice in black. Several reasons include, if you’re feeling cold it’s not so obvious that you’re not wearing a bra and black makes almost everything look more expensive – an elasticated one-piece included.
For a little silhouette, I went for a cape blazer and skinny jeans. And to break up all of the darkness, a delicate silver body chain, which also compliments the shape of the neckline.

2. The girly jumpsuit
Can you even believe that this jumpsuit is Forever 21?! It was one of those clothing emergencies where I really needed to change and I grabbed the most subtle, inoffensive material I could find. This was the result of impulse shopping. Accessorising with a long necklace accentuates how low a neckline is.

3. The slip dress
Just how long has the slip dress been around for?! As it’s becoming a trophy of the 90’s and doesn’t look like it’ll be leaving us any time soon as we’re wearing it over jumpers, t-shirts and under fluffy knits – or on it’s own, having some reliable and unique slip dresses are necessary.
So if you were looking for an excuse to shop today, you’re welcome. I actually bought this searching for a lingerie slip rather than an everyday kind of dress. I wanted something different, with more attention to the neckline and hem details, which I found very few high street brands do without it costing £100+.
