Is Black Beautiful?

French Connection
I recently found that gorgeous ribbon LBD (Little black dress) from French Connection and suddenly found myself thinking about the need of another colourless piece of fashion in my wardrobe . . . I mean, one always gets advice that the most classic choice is black and that it is suitable for just about every situation. But is that true? What do you think . . . is black the ultimate classic or is it becoming boring and it´s maybe time for a new ageless style miracle?

Ich habe neulich diese atemberaubende "Kleine Schwarze" von French Connection entdeckt und fand mich plötzlich in einer kleinen Fashion-Diskussion mit mir selbst wieder: Es heißt ständig Schwarz sei der ideale Begleiter in einfach jeder Situation, aber ist das tatsächlich so? Wie denkt ihr darüber . . . Schwarz als ultimativer Klassiker oder wird die Farbe so langsam langweilig und altbacken und sollte vielleicht sogar von einem neuen zeitlosen Stylewunder abgelöst werden?

  1. This dress is really gorgeous, I want it too!

    I think black will be classic always. But in my opinion it's a difficult colour. For example, black doesn't suit memuch when it's close to my face (black shoes, bags and skirts are ok)))), I need to add some another colour (even just a necklace or brooch). Or my complexion will be delicate pale green in a pair with total black lol )) Black looks better on brunettes or tanned.
    And black isn't suitable for wedding I guess)) Though...who knows...gothic wedding?))

    1. Well, for the wedding that´s maybe worth another discussion :) but wiv the skin, I know exactly what u mean . . . I am rather pale myself and can´t wear too much black at once or I look like a zombie :D

  2. I think it still rings true today, you can always pair it with amazing more colorful jewelry/heels/clutch without it becoming too much. I love your LBD :)

  11. I have to admit I do own a couple of LBDs but there definitely not my first choice when it comes to choosing an outfit! Infact I don't think i've worn either for over a year but perhaps that just means I need to shop for a new one, lol!!

  13. I totally agree that today black isn't the only thing that can be considered "classy" but if you are going for safe and classy it is always a good choice for events such as weddings. This is def a good alternative to a Herve Leger. Now following you! bopontrend.com

  20. Dankeschöööön :)

    Wow, toll dass du auch auf Englisch bloggst. Was hast du damit so für Erfahrungen gemacht? Bist du zweisprachig und ist es daher kein Problem für dich oder ist es doch eher anstrengend? Ich überlege ja immer, auch auf Englisch zu bloggen, aber nur Englisch verjagt vielleicht einige deutsche Leser und beides ist bei meinen zum Teil längeren Texten zu zeitaufwändig.

    Schwarz wird für mich immer ein Klassiker bleiben; aber wie du sagst, manchmal ist ein bisschen Farbe einfach erfrischend!!
