While bold hues may hold the standard when it comes to turning heads, black-on-black can be even more attention grabbing than their brightly shaded counterparts. The absence of colour derives a sense of dark power; dress it right and you'll be an avenging fashionista.
Cloak yourself in pitch but avoid falling flat by playing with textures to define your silhouette. A weaved dress with a side slit totally slays, or break up the ensemble with bits of colour; be it a punchy aqua Petite Malle or a double-sided camel scarf. And you'll always be classy chic if you go monochrome (here's looking at the hounds-tooth faux fur coat).
As Chanel once said, "Black has it all". Her fellow French style devotees are certainly taking heed: Black is always in vogue.
