Favourite Fashion Pieces For Girls Who Only Wear Black | Clozette

We've heard people say that green, red, purple, or basically *insert any colour here* is the new black. But for girls who simply love its simple yet bold vibe, nothing can ever replace black as the queen of all colours. From accessories down to every single piece of clothing, some people may think that the love for this colour may have gone to the extreme. But there's an undeniable chicness and badass-ery that comes along with this style territory.

So if you're one of the fashion ravens who simply can't get enough of this hue, here's a list of fashion pieces to add to your wardrobe. 

--------------------------

A classic white tee


Sort of unexpected? We were about to suggest a plain black tee but we're sure you already have enough of those. However, a classic white tee made this list because it's the perfect contrast to an all-black wardrobe. If you feel like giving your OOTD some dimension without leaving your favourite colour scheme, this classic piece is the way to go. 
Black trousers 


Skinny jeans, culoutte, high-waisted, leather -- you name it! Besides the practicality that comes with wearing dark trousers, the mysterious silhouette it gives off certainly adds an extra boost of confidence at every stride. 


Classic sneaks


Not every black-addict fashionista is made for boots or sandals or high heels. But as much as our tastes in footwear vary, this pair will always have its place in our shoe racks. Going by the entire philosophy of loving an all-black wardrobe, which is "practicality in style", classic sneakers complete our outfit without even trying. So whether you feel like going for a punk rock vibe or a casual, sporty look, these kicks got your back. 


A minimalistic silver accessory


Considering the dark monochrome you have in mind, gold can come off a little too flashy for your chosen ensemble. Stick to the cool tones of silver if you want to give your outfit a touch of sparkle. Not only does it give off a more youthful vibe, it also works as a great neutral contrast to your already heavy-hued overall look. 


The LBD



Of course this list wouldn't be complete without the epitome of chicness -- the little black dress. This fashion must-have is not just for girls who love the colour but for every woman in general. Its compelling elegance, simplicity, and power is at the very heart of why we love black in the first place and it's something that complements every mood and style.

There's a relentless charm to a woman who strives to be empowered despite the many roles she needs to play. A successful career woman, a loving mother, an energetic daughter, a reliable sister -- despite the challenges that come along with these various facets of being a modern day woman, there's a certain elegance and grace to the way she welcomes each role with acceptance, passion, and joy.

And with the philosophy of creating fragrances that celebrate every woman's love for life, the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming perfume embraces the irresistible charms and the powerful enigma of the modern day woman in one concoction. With its combination of fresh, floral, and musky scents, it's the perfect scent to wear whether you're feeling carefree, glamorous, or sensual -- as inspired by how the story of Miss Dior came to be.


Inspired by his sister, Christian Dior's fragrance line went unnamed until the moment his muse Mitzah Bricard saw Dior's sister Catherine. A war veteran who served under the Resistance during the 1940s and a supportive sister who advocated for her brother's passion for feminine luxury using yards of fabric and embroidery -- her bravery and courage for her causes, coupled with her love and care for her brother showed two admirable facets that signified a woman's true elegance. It is this encounter that led to the moment when "Miss Dior" was born. 

And much like the previous fragrances in the collection, the Miss Dior's Absolutely Blooming perfume proves to be as equally divine. The fragrance embodies the spirit of a blooming bouquet with its beautiful floral fragrance and sassy, tangy sweetness -- a perfect representation of the modern day woman's blossoming beauty.

So to celebrate each and every role a modern day woman takes on each day, we've put together style inspirations that capture Miss Dior's Absolutely Blooming's charm.

There's just something about a staple Black Dress that accentuates the elegance and power of a woman -- just like Charlize Theron in this embroidered black dress ensemble. 

Fashion Tip: always keep a well-tailored LBD in your wardrobe and pair it with a spritz of Miss Dior's Absolutely Blooming's musky notes to awaken the elegance in you.

Beauty Tip: Pair it with Dior Rouge in Rose Montaigne, its nude tone a perfect match to that elegantly classic look.

A lot of people say that red pants are not for everyone. But who's to stop you? Finding the right kind of red just like how you would with your lipstick is a sure way to nail a bold, structured look.

Fashion Tip: To complement the musky scent of Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming, throw in a structured top for a chic ensemble that easily takes you from the office to a night out with your BFFs.

Beauty Tip: Match it with Dior Rouge in D-Light -- a deep mauvy shade for a signature bold pout.

Simple yet captivating, a bright-coloured pleated dress paired with a genuine and carefree smile captures the allure of everyone in the room. This fashion look is definitely the way to go for those dull and uninspiring days.

Fashion Tip: To uplift your senses, pick a bright pastel shade and a flowy silhouette to match the fresh floral notes of Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming.

Beauty Tip: Swipe your lips with Dior Rouge in Red Smile -- a classic blue-red-- to complete the look!

The weather is getting cooler, clothes are being layered over each other, and the makeup looks are starting to get a bit darker, means only one thing: fall, the fashion aspect of it all, is here. Since August is our Fashion Issue, we decided to introduce you to the chic men and women behind Clozette with #30DaysOfStyle. And among those 30 looks, we spotted a number of trends that we believe will be huge this coming Fall/Winter 2016.


From varied layers and silhouettes to “cool girl” colours, each member of #TeamClozette brought their fashion A-game front and centre to showcase their individual fashion tastes as well as their different personalities.

So if you want to stay on top of your fashion game, as well as get to know a few of the people behind the leading women social network in Asia, keep reading below for the top 5 trends we spotted in this month’s #30DaysOfStyle!

Bold shift dresses


Dress: Carven Paris from The Outnet; Shoes: Kurt Geiger; Watch: Michael Kors

Here at Clozette, it's all about chic shift dresses as they’re easy to put together and can easily go from work-to-cocktail hour! Take this jacquard dress worn by Becks Ko, Editor of our sister-site GlamAsia, for example. It needs minimal accessories as the dress itself is already all kinds of glam and bold!

“Cool girl” colours


Dress: In Good Company Shoes: SUPERGA

As the Fall season is all about neutral shades, or as we like to call them “cool girl colours,” we noticed that a number of our Clozeteers were already rocking them such as our Associate Business Director Jessie Loy! Her sleek grey dress beautifully complements her skin tone, while its material and fit makes it suitable to pair with flats, heels, and sandals!


Sleek trousers


Top: Pink Manila ; Pants: Zalora; Heels: SM Parisian Bag: Mango

Wear it with any top you like, with any shoes your feet desires, and these types of pants will still fashionably tie it all together. Go for a power-dressing look such as this combo from INSIDER Editor Lystra Aranal, or opt for a more relaxed vibe by trading in the heels for sandals!


Loose silhouettes


Dress: Seek The Uniq; Sneakers: Puma; Bag: Furla

As working girls and boys, we want to be as comfy in our clothes as possible without having to sacrifice our personal flair for fashion. Just look at GlamAsia Features Writer Nasia Cammayo’s bold sporty dress paired with these trendy sneakers; it allows her to easily get to places around the city, but her love for loose pieces still shines through!


Flowy Layers


Top: Mango; Pants: The Editor's Market; Kimono: ZALIA; Shoes: Abarcate sandals

It’s not exactly sweater weather yet, but it’s getting there through the layering trend. But instead of going for thick jackets and tops, our Campaigns Executive Azzleena Chng opted for light and flowy pieces that complement each other to make it suitable for our climate!
