50 shades of black

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Another outfit post in Amsterdam. I decided to put in effort again regardless of the amount of walking that we would be doing.  90% of my wardrobe consists of black clothing. Most of my shoes and bags are black too, I at one point had a very long dark hair and wore all black and a friend of mine thought I was a goth before we were friends hence the post titles; 50 shades of black.

I just love the versatility of this shade and its timeless, classiness and sophistication.  It never goes out of style and it works on most people. I own a lot of black jean/trousers and wear that the most.  I love the black outfit and the red lipstick look, although I am more of a nude/brown lipstick lover.

I did learn a new thing though; when tired, don’t wear black top as it would emphasise the under eye dark circles. I can’t remember where I read this though. Another bad thing about black is that sometimes, the shades don’t match.
