If Wearing All Black Is Wrong, We Don’t Want To Be Right

Tel Aviv might be nicknamed The White City, but when it comes to style, we go back to black. Although the he head-to-toe black trend is once again in the limelight, we never expected it to dethrone print as an undeniable must-have. But it did…

Bár Tel Aviv beceneve “A Fehér Város”, a “tetőtől talpig fekete” look mára Izraelt is meghódította.

The beginnings

It all started 2013 when Céline, Lanvin, Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein and Narciso Rodriguez showed us outfits in black and white as a complete contrast to other designers who created clothes in vibrant colours and print. We could not help but notice Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 head-to-toe black part of the collection. Long black coats and black wide-legged pants, black blazers and fabulous black dresses suggested that we can expect this trend to continue on Spring 2015 runways. And we were right. Alexander Wang proved that the black is here to stay this season.

2013-ban a Célina, a Lanvin, Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, és Narcisco Rodrigiez is fekete-fehér kombinációkkal leptek meg minket, a korábbi színes, vibráló kreációk helyett. Mi több, a Dior ház 2014/15-ös kollekciója is a feketét ünnepelte.

Celebrities wearing head-to-toe black

The absolute queen of the all black look is Victoria Beckham. She definitely knows how to wear this trendy outfit as she likes combining textures and adding accessories such as hats and chains. The head-to-toe black can be dated from 2011 when Miranda Kerr showed us how to combine a maxi black jersey dress with a black leather moto jacket and black platform boots. There is also Charlize Theron’s outfit consisting of a black peacoat, black jeans and black high-heeled boots. We can also mention Kate Hudson’s floor length dress with a cut-out black detail just below the bust in 2014. While promoting The Amazing Spiderman 2, Emma Stone wore all black outfit when she matched a high-waisted pants with a black blouse. Diane Kruger wowed us all when wearing a black jumpsuit with a lace-up detail.

A “fekete look” királynője egyértelműen Victoria Beckham, de Miranda Kerr, Charlize Theron és Kate Hudson, vagy Emma Stone és Diane Kruger is előszeretettel visel feketét a vörös szőnyegen és magánéletben agyaránt.

Rules for wearing all black clothing

Vary the fabrics and textures as Victoria Beckham fabulously does. You can also incorporate a lot of different accessories if you wear all black clothing. Statement pieces of jewellery will be gorgeous on this outfit. Black from head to toe can be worn both for the evening and for the casual occasion. Changing the colour of your lipstick is what makes the transition visible.

A kiegészítők egyenesen életre kelnek a feketével kombinálva. Titkos tipp: a nagy, hangsúlyos ékszerek és egy erőteljes színű rúzs méginkább feldobja a fekete öltözéket. Szívesen.

Why we all want to wear black?

We think we all want to wear this black trend now. But, why? Why is black so chic? Well, black makes you slimmer and we all need that. Black is figure flattering hiding anything you want to hide on your body. Then if you wear all black clothing, you do not have to worry about the matching. All black looks allow us to experiment with fabrics, textures and bold jewellery. We can layer black clothes endlessly and we can still be chic. Black flatters any skin tone and that is the reason why it is so versatile.

A fekete másik nagy előnye, hogy vékonyít, emellett nem kell annyit merengeni rajta, mivel is kombinálható – hiszen a fekete ruhák majd’ minden más fekete darabbal tökéletesen működnek.

Black never goes out of fashion

It is always there waiting for us. The latest runway shows are the strong predictor of the popularity of head-to-toe black look. Guess what fashion people wear? Black. We’re looking at you, Dora Abodi, Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Kors, and Vera Wang…

Mi más bizonyíthatná jobban a “tetőtől talpig fekete” külső relevanciáját, mint hogy a világ legnagyobb tervezői – Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Kors, Vera Vang, és a magyar divatvilág koronázatlan királynője, Abodi Dóra is imádnak feketébe bújni.
