Recessionista: Black to Black

Take your fashion tips from Batman, Catwoman and the Grim Reaper because black on black was all over New York Fashion Week runways for Fall ’09. This head-to-toe fashion creates a chic and sophisticated look that takes seconds to throw together. Designers like Max Azria, Jill Stuart and DVF are just a few who have given birth to this trend.

Get this look by mixing different shades of black together along with black patent leather, soft velour or lace. Black accessories will also pull together the look and take it from day to night. Pair your black outfit with black lacquer chandelier earrings, a sequin handbag or a chunky cuff.  Remember, this trend is all about the black so keep the look monochromatic. Plus, no one will ever know if you repeat the same pieces throughout the week!

    Not sure where I saw this, maybe on a Chinese fashion website, they were raving about purple…

    i wonder how in sync the global colors are… from country to country.
