Black is a safe color when it comes to clothing. Whether it is dresses, skirts, suits or tops, black is classic, elegant and will suit any attire for any occasion. Today we are looking at black tunic tops and tricks on how to wear them. If you aren’t careful black can make you washed out and can look lifeless and dull. In can also look very strict so think about using black with different textures and color contrasts to make you look interesting, beautiful and bold.
Think About Wearing Black in Sheer Fabrics
When choosing to wear a black top it can look less severe if you choose a lighter more transparent material. This type of fabric breaks up the one color and light will reflect making it look sheer and shimmery. Think about adding some layers over the top or add an interesting necklace in a contrasting color. This particular blouse adds some much needed textural interest and means you can wear it with a black skirt without it being too much black. This sleeveless chiffon top if perfect for the hot weather and can be worn to work or even to the beach. An investment we think is well worth making. The best thing is, it is classic, covers everything and will leave you feeling girly and sexy because of the ruffles and the material.
Add a Bright Accessory
If you aren’t going to layer on the top then think about adding a scarf or a necklace that is bright and colorful. This will break up the one piece color and will add texture and an element of luxury. This trick works with all types of black tops and jumpers. We really like this sleeveless tank top in black. It is tight fitting and classic. It is practical, versatile and can be worn in many different ways. Team it with leggings and a denim jacket for a more casual look or team it with a leather skirt if you are going out. Add a flowery scarf for the summer days or add a pearl necklace for those smart occasions. If you are feeling really bold then choose some gold and silver bangles and a large medallion necklace.
Layers, Layers and More Layers
The great thing about tank tops is you can layer them. Add a blazer and a sweatshirt or add an open shirt and a jacket. The whole idea is to make the black color the main interest and then choose something contrasting to layer on top. For example this beautifully knitted tank top would go great with a flannel shirt in mustard yellow and a brown jacket on top. Don’t be scared to experiment with different colors. This way you can find your style and what works great for you. This knitted tank top adds the texture so you don’t have too but seriously consider adding a layer or two to change the overall look and soften the black color.
