How to Tuesday: 3 Ways to Wear All Black

Hey guys,

Welcome to the first How To Tuesday of 2017! Sorry for not posting too much last week. I really hope that I am able to keep up with the blogging and I plan to try and post everyday that I am able to. 

So I had originally planned to do a post on how to wear all white because it's January and it's okay to wear white again (haha but really though, it's not like I actually follow the whole no white after labor day rule anyways). But then I realized that I own a lot of white tops but not a whole lot of white anything else which means that I have to go out and buy some more clothes (yay!) but I unfortunately ran out of time before I wanted to post this. So I decided to do a post on how to wear all black (because apparently, I wear way more black than I do white even though every time I go shopping my mom and sister make fun of me for buying a bunch of white stuff, weird!) and then next month  I will post the one on how to wear all white. 

I wanted to do this post because I know there are quite a few fashion people out there such as bloggers and YouTubers that only wear neutral colors (i.e. all black, all white, or a mix of both). Over the last couple of years it has become quite a popular trend. Granted, in this post I am only wearing one single neutral color and that's black but I know that wearing all black or all white is a trend as well so I figured since I am really into fashion that I might as well give it a try. 

Normally I stick to wearing a black top or a white top and find some way to add a pop of color or I will start with a pop of color and figure out how to die if down a little by adding some black or white. So I thought it would be fun to try sticking to just one color and this time I wore all black. And to be honest, out of the 3 outfits that I came up with, the first and last the ones are my favorite. 

The first one is very fun and in my opinion, you don't really notice that I am wearing all black. When I came up with the idea, I thought I would look really strange just wearing all black and no color but after looking through all of the photos, I just look like I'm wearing a fun outfit that I put together.

The second outfit is my least favorite but it literally took no time whatsoever to put together because it's just a black t-shirt with a pair of black shorts and I threw on my favorite pair of casual shoes which are just a pair of black slip-on Vans. This outfit is very simple and you could definitely wear it out and about while running errands if you don't feel like putting a lot of thought into your outfit. It's very simple to just grab two black casual items and put them on. I promise you will look put together because there is nothing more fancy than wearing black!

This outfit is great because you really can't tell that I am wearing all black and after I came up with this outfit, I realized that I had already worn this exact outfit several times. It's very easy to just throw on a black romper and a pair of black shoes. You can also, of course, try wearing a casual black dress and some black sandals and there you go, you have the perfect all black outfit!

And yes, I know that all of these outfits are summer outfits but you have to remember that I live in Florida and so far this winter we've only had like 5 cold days so most of the time we are still wearing shorts, tank tops, and flip flops around. However, hopefully this gives you guys some inspiration for your spring and summer shopping lists!
