All Black Everythang
All black everything seems simple right? But what if it took 4 gorgeous women named Nancy, Leslie, Judy and Gail and their incredible style sense to show you how to turn a simple black outfit into a fabulous classy all black everything affair?
Well, scroll down and we’ll let you be the judge!
L.B.D. These are my favorite three letters. The little black dress is perfect for so many different events and situations. From the perfectly tailored dress for the boardroom to that perfect saucy number for date night, little black dresses always perfectly fit the bill!
Tall girls everywhere, this dress needs no introduction. This baby is from the amazing TTYA x long tall sally AW2015 collection. The entire collection is amazing, but this dress took my breath away as soon as I laid eyes on it!
The fit of this dress is aaaamazing! I went with a size smaller: I love how it sucks everything in and keeps the girls where they need to be! The neckline – a very deep V – reveals just the right amount of sexiness. If you need support for the girls, you will need a strapless U plunge bra similar to this one here. In addition, I don’t even need to mention the sheer sleeves that hit you where the sleeves need to hit!
I’m so thankful for all the ladies behind Taller Than Your Average and Long Tall Sally for hooking us up with fashionable pieces that fit our longer limbs! These pieces are elegant and most importantly expertly made. As Beyonce said, every woman needs a Freakum dress – clearly, I have found mine.
Elegant, sophisticated, sexy, sultry, these are all apt descriptions of what an all black outfit can do for the wearer. Now, I’m not one who typically dresses in all black, but sometimes you just can’t beat a sexy black dress or a black on black on black outfit to say I’m sexy, I’m cool, effortlessly pulled together and incredibly chic.
My all black look was all about combining textures and materials to create one funky outfit. The starting point was this funky sweater with its textured lace detail at the front. I was immediately drawn to this piece when I saw it knowing that it would be a great piece to add a bit of funk to an otherwise simple look.
But why stop there? I wanted to continue adding different textured pieces together by pairing this midi-length faux leather skirt to the look. Not only does this skirt accentuate my God given height, but faux leather pieces are a huge trend right now that I’m happy to dive into so a double bonus for me!
Lastly, to complete the look, I added these studded black pumps (more texture), funky mismatched earrings and this leopard print envelope clutch. All black everything, I can definitely get down with this!
Ain’t nothing like an all black outfit my friends. I mean come on black is beautiful as they say! I’m not going to lie, if it were up to me, I’d wear black all day, every day. LOL
Its easy peasy because black goes with everything! As my friends can confirm my uniform used to be (and sometimes I still do ssshhhh don’t tell anybody) black pants and a top. I wore this “uniform” for work or a night out with the girls.
So for this look I went to my closet and pulled out this gorgeous top and paired it with a pencil skirt with flounce hem. I love the “flirty-ness” of the skirt. I feel like it adds a daintyness that counter acts the more edginess of the moto jacket.

I love the all black look, if well done, it can be very classy and chic. You will often catch me wearing an all-black outfit in the fall and winter time.
In order to achieve the perfect all black ensemble I often shop for good quality black pieces that I can remix together. This look is the perfect example. I remixed this lacy black top that I wore earlier this year in one of our first blog post called (LBD four ways). For the “LBD” post, I wore said blouse with my black faux leather skirt that I wore in our (Fall Look Book Part 3) post to create my look.
Sometimes going with the simplest outfit and remixing the pieces from your own wardrobe can be the best way to go, and your bank account will thank you!
To complete my look I wore my ear cuff earring and my Betsey Johnson snakeskin black and blue pumps.
