I wear all black most of the time, OK…basically all the time. Over the years I have built a classic wardrobe that consists of solids. I found that patterns can look dated only because they seem to come and go with the trends. So, to find a timeless pattern pieces has been too much work for me, therefore solids. And, black never looks dated.

The idea of color is intriguing, but let’s not kid ourselves, we’re classicists. If a pair of pants come in black and five other colors, you go for the black pair…every time.
So, how do you add color to your mostly black wardrobe?

How to Add Color to Your Mostly Black Wardrobe
I am very excited to bring you this new collection of scarves. Red and blue look fabulous with black. I even started a series on how to elevate a black sheath dress using this collection.

The entire collection stunningly ties black, red, and blue together (if I do say so myself). You’ll look effortlessly stylish. And, I promise you’ll love how your outfit is easily elevated every time you put on a scarf from this collection.
Here are a few looks I put together to show how the scarves from this collection look with black.
