You really can’t do without black, the most versatile of hues. From your outfit to your accessories, here are three style tips to help you make the most of black through the day:
Start your day with a dash of black! For most men, the black suit is indispensable on work days. Opt for cotton in summer and black tweed and woolen fabrics in winter. Use tone-on-tone for the shirt and tie to balance the look. Women can pair a black dress with a tailored jacket and pumps for a formal office environment.
A black dress or tunic can be worn with a silk scarf around the neck or a cool cardigan in winter. Get black to work in your makeup too. Must haves in your kitty include black eyeliner for a formal look or black pencil liner for a softer effect.
Make a chic style statement when you’re out on a romantic rendezvous at an upwon café. For men there’s nothing more flexible than black. Pair your formal black shirt with grey trousers and black patent brogues. Those with more sophisticated tastes can opt for a grey linen jacket over an all black shirt and trousers combo.
Petite women can opt for a grey linen jacket over an all black shirt and trousers combo. Petite women can opt for a versatile black shift dress. Add fullness to your figure with embellished, ruched or ruffled details. Pair it with coordinated tights in winter.
If you have broad shoulders, go for an asymmetrical neckline such as black single shoulder dress or an elegant black saree. Black mascara with kohl gives you a smoldering gaze. Glam up your look with modern extras such as long necklace, ankle strap black heels or a wide bangle.
They don’t call ‘black tie’ events for nothing! The black gown for women and black tuxedo for men are the ultimate ensembles for a ballroom dinner. Select a statement style and add a dash of ritzy accessories. Women can don a diamond necklace or black pearls. Black cat eyeliner will add sensuality to the look. The most popular dinner jacket trend for men is black, single-breasted with satin lapels. Pair it with a cravat or bow tie and a statement watch with black leather straps.
Along with style and grooming essentials, black is in trend in oral care as well! Check out the stylish new Colgate Slim Soft Charcoal Toothbrush. Its charcoal bristles are 17 times slimmer than regular ones, which means it can get into those hard to reach spots between the teeth softly and comfortably.
Nothing spells class and style like black. It works for outfits as well as accessories, daytime or night events. No wonder Colgate’s new SlimSoft Charcoal Toothbrush is inspired by this statement shade too. Whatever the occasion or your fashion sensibility, you really can’t go wrong with black. From fashion to accessories, from teeth to toe, black is the hue du jour!
