One of the most elegant ways to dress is to work a complete outfit of black on black. It is striking, slimming and gives the wearer an air of confidence that no other color in the spectrum can acheive.
Every Dandi should coordinate a black on black outfit for every season and formal occasion. When creating your look be aware that fabrics absorb color differently and you want to be very careful when trying to match blacks. The black color in clothes can carry a purple, brown or grey cast so be careful in mixing and matching, the wrong hue and can dilute your look.
Mix different fabrics and textures to avoid a uniform look and when matching your black shirt or tie to your black suit use the textures in the tie and the design of the shirt to give your palette contrast and approachability.
Now that we are in the summer months the lighter weight the fabric the better, that said cotton can be a challenge because it fades easily so always hand wash or dry clean your these black items (even if laundered get them dry cleaned, not washed) and rarely if ever put them in the dryer. If you do decide to wash them always use cold water.
If you feel the urge to add jewelry, keep it minimal. A watch or ring will do the trick. Avoid shiny jewelry around your neck, let the black speak for itself.
