Black has always been a difficult color to wear, and it’s hard to avoid looking like a walking inkblot.
Two designers have come up with stylish solutions in their textures.
Takuya Jinn, of Gabriel has this “High Neck Sweater” in a ribbed black on black pattern, which comes in a sleeveless style shown here, full length sleeves or a mini top. The necklace and roll-neck collar come as a single attachment and you also have the option of wearing just the roll-neck collar without the necklace.
The new release pencil skirt from Coco, has a subtle black and grey broad stripe, matching belt and fine button and seam details on the waistline.
AlaFolie has always been one of my favourites – one of the first things I ever blogged was one of Pixivor’s dresses, called Mousseline. Her use of fabrics and textures always amazes me. This one speaks of seasonal cocktail parties – without needing to descend into red, white and green.
