Party in Berghain: black outfit. Meeting with a client: black suit. Workout at the gym: you know which colour is most flattering. Perfect for so many occasions, it’s no wonder that the colour is so popular (even though it’s not actually a colour). In today’s blog we’ll tell you what outfits are our favourite black looks. We have not only recommendations, but also glasses and sunglasses to go with the outfits. Because glasses are the perfect finish for every outfit.
“I kill in my black tee, I steal in my black tee”
is a line from the track Black Tee by rapper Gucci Mane. He means the classic black t-shirt, oversized of course. If you want a bold party outfit, you can wear it in a size that conceals the necessary and replaces a dress. That’s the provocative evening style of people like model Bella Hadid. Oval sunglasses go well with this look. It’s a killer style!
But before “play hard” comes “work hard”
The workdays need to be full so that you can relax at the weekends and release all your pent up stress with a good conscience. Meetings, team calls, client meetings. Maybe your job also has staff responsibilities or you have to present the current figures to your boss. Ties are gradually disappearing from the business world, so other ways have to be found to dress appropriately for such activities without looking boring. You can do it by wearing, for example, dark chinos and a black rollneck jumper. Boots and a coat are ideal at this time of year. And for a chic look, choose top brands like Marc Jacobs or Emporio Armani. If you like the total package from fashionista Alex Smiles, then choose Marc Jacobs sunglasses Marc 119/S or Emporio Armani’s sunglasses EA4060.
“Work hard” applies to your workout too
So it can sometimes happen that you get sweaty and it soaks into your sportswear. It can be unpleasant in areas like your armpits, between your buttocks or in your crotch. At least, if you’re not the only person in the gym (and black is particularly unforgiving). You don’t have to be embarrassed, but if you don’t want to attract attention, go for black (surprise, surprise). Fitness girl Gerda looks great, not least with her black sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana, model Dolce Gabbana DG4270.
Chillout in a black outfit
If you’ve had a hard workout and you want to chillout afterwards, or just relax on the sofa, an outfit from Jérôme Boateng will be ideal. If you’ve been racing aROUND the football pitch for 90 minutes, you’ll know how to value your rest time. Treat yourself to the iconic black sweatpants look, with a black sweater and white oversized t-shirt. If you come from Berlin, you’ll team it with a gold chain. But more interesting accessories to suit Boateng’s style are his glasses and sunglasses, which he designed together with Edel Optic under the brand JB by Jerome Boateng. In the photo underneath he’s wearing one of his favourite models, JB Musickid.
Black during the dark season
How can you combat the winter blues? One option is with colour. Warm colours can give you a feeling of security. But it’s not essential. If you think that brightly coloured winter jackets are only for safety personnel at tobogganning, choose instead classic black when it turns cold. If you have a padded jacket, get it out the wardrobe, because they’re back in fashion! Black denim too. All you need now are black gloves and sunglasses. WOOD FELLAS from Munich have the right model. Apart from the unique appearance of wooden glasses, WOOD FELLAS Hohenburg are much more comfortable to wear in cold temperatures than metal frames, which get colder.
