Wearing black can be a blessing or a curse. It can look great, or really boring and bland. To get it right, start by selecting black pieces in different textures of velvet, stretch cotton, and embellished sequins that are all smooth and bulk free. When done well, the monochromatic look of black from head to toe gives you an overall chic look like no other.
Pair a deep v-neck velvet blazer over a scoop neck tee to create a longer upper torso. If you have a little pooch, keep the jacket opened to conceal any rolls or bulging.
