Ten Reasons Why You Need a Little Black Dress for the Holiday Season


We’re all getting ready to kick off the holiday season! Thanksgiving and Christmas are upon us so show yourself a little love. It’s easy to love yourself when you feel and look your best.
Don’t know what to wear to family functions, or holiday events and you don’t want to wear the cliche red dress? Wear Black!
Here are ten reasons why the color black will always make your life easier.

1.Black is the New Black
Black isn’t going anywhere. It is always going to be the quintessential go-to, classic color in your
wardrobe. It will stay for years, even decades. Black is the color that sticks through every season.

2. There are endless possibilities of ways to dress it up
Be extravagant and pair it with a gold belt. Be bold and pair it with some converse or tennis shoes. Be classic and pair it with a colorful blazer. Be edgy and pair it with a leather jacket. Pair it with some polka dotted tights to put the visual on your legs. The possibilities are endless.

3. Black makes you look thinner
A monochromatic look hides detail! Wearing black actually hides or disguises  your body contour
from different types of lighting, It actually conceals creases and folds in your body better than any other color.

4. It doesn’t stain
Spilled your coffee? No problem. Just let it dry and carry on with your day. You will never see the effects of unfortunate mishaps. 

5. It always looks “dressed up”
No matter the occasion, If you’re wearing black, you will always look just a little more dressed up than usual. There’s something magical about this color. It has an endless glamorous effect. 

6. It’s Easy
When I don’t know what to wear, nine out of ten times, I’m going for something black. It’s actually trying with out trying at all. 

7. Color is surely to POP
When you pair a color with black, it it going to shout, scream, and yell look at me...even when you wear a bright nail polish or lipstick color. Whatever the accessory, it’s going to stand out extensively more than any other color combos. 

8. It doesn’t get old.
Kind of like that PB& J sandwich  I ate everyday in high school. I haven’t taken a bite out of it until a couple of weeks ago, literally 8 years later. I had gotten so tired of it. I can’t believe we took an eight year break. I forgot how much I missed that chewy goodness.
Colors can be the same way. You can overuse colors. Recently, I have a problem with turquoise. I am using pops of turquoise in my new house, and these days it is my favorite color to wear. I am deathly afraid I’ll be getting tired of it soon. What will my wardrobe become after that? 
Black is timeless. No one gets tired of black. It’s elegant. but at the same time it's simple. Is black even a color? “Black is  the result of the absence of or complete absorption of light. It is the opposite of white the combined spectrum of color or light. It is an achromatic color, literally a color without color or hue.” Maybe that is why it has a timeless, magical aura.

9. It makes you automatically fierce
There are certain studies that show most people associate the color black with confidence. Black means business. I don’t know about you, but when I put on my back blazer jacket, I feel like an automatic CEO. You’re hired!

10. You’re an instant Audrey Hepburn
Audrey is my style icon. You’ll be having Breakfast at Tiffany’s everyday with a black ensemble. There is nothing more fabulous, classic, and sophisticated than channeling your inner Hepburn with a LBD.

From my closet to yours, Thanks for stopping by.
