Outfit : All Black All the Time

Why does anyone wear any color other than black? No color is as simple and classic yet bold and versatile. That’s why it makes for the best base for a minimalist wardrobe.

At the start of the year, Dave and I made the decision to refine our wardrobes, sticking to higher quality, classic, and mostly all-black pieces. We’re hardly minimalists (I mean, have you seen my hoarder-esque collections?). But simplifying our clothing has yielded undeniable results.

1) We get SO many more compliments while we’re out and about. I can’t tell you the number of times someone comments on Dave’s outfit when he’s just wearing a black long tee and black jeans, haha. Evidently, there’s something about all-black that really makes a statement.
2) Black just makes me happier. I used to try to incorporate color into my closet because I felt some social pressure to “change it up”, so I bought lots of fast fashion that rarely saw the light of day. I truly feel most like myself and most comfortable in monochrome.

So all of that to say: I plan on doing more wardrobe posts, however, they’ll be very simple, mostly all-black looks. In the words of Morticia Addams, “Black is such a happy color, darling!”

  1. I remember telling a kid in elementary school that my favorite “color” was black and it freaked him out haha I love it too. This is a great outfit as well! I need more black in my own wardrobe.

  2. black and grey are my favourites.. I love that you (and Dave) have decided to stick with what you love! You look amazing in black, and mixing shapes and fabrics/textures still keeps it super interesting to look at!
