This woman is demonstrating the way to do head to toe black (actually her boots are taupe...) without looking like Sid Vicious or an undertaker. There needs to be at least one dash of colour, strong shapes and different textures. The pants she's wearing are awesome (she said she got them in a store in Cherryhill Mall) and she's balanced them with a fitted jacket. Add the knit scarf, small cross-body bag, and a bold red lip, and she looks incredibly chic. Another woman who does the all-black thing very well, and favours the same proportions of a fitted top and wide leg bottoms is Jean of the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas. Jean usually accessorizes with pieces of colourful bakelite jewellery from her huge collection and a marvelous hat. Both of these women prove that you can wear head to toe black and be anything but drab.
