KarenLee 's Thoughts:

Contrary to popular belief, black on black styling really isn’t the easiest way out, as there are numerous elements that need to be considered such as fabric, material, color, details and layering tactics: how suitable they are and how well all the pieces get along with each other; yet probably the most important component of all is ensuring that every layering piece is truly black, not faded black, not dark gray, but solid black when seen under the sunlight. This process is one that which many of us often unfortunately fail to put into practice as it isn’t all that often that we have time to double check ourselves in the sunlight (not to mention having access to it) when we are almost always running late; however this step is one that should never be neglected when dressing in black because this may be the only chance for us to make sure that the outfit doesn’t look (As much as we all dread hearing it, truth be told)… cheap. Yes, I said it.. but calm down… I’m one of those guilty ones who likes to simply opt to ignore when I wear something black that cost me no more than my groceries… but it’s about time that I face the truth and let the fashion police punish me so that I’m never, ever caught wearing a black outfit that really isn’t black after all. Let the word ‘cheap’ be gone from my life- Something to keep in mind even when vintage shopping, or shopping for low cost items (think Forever21 type). On that note, speaking from experience, considering what the piece would look like after a wash is probably a good idea too, especially if it’s cotton.
