First of all, when we talk about 'All Black Wardrobes', it basically means that a lot of your clothing items are black, and so when you put together a simple outfit, it basically revolves around that colour.
Just a quick disclaimer: this is not saying that you should ban colour from your life or wardrobe (definitely not), but rather I just wanted to look at some of the ways an all black wardrobe could be very useful/helpful for your fashion choices.
Let's start with perhaps the most obvious reason we are attracted to wearing the colour black.
It makes clothes coordination so much easier.
It's true that black goes with everything, so it means that you don't need to constantly be worried about whether your outfit works, because for the most part you can never go wrong with a black statement piece.
Wear it with any other colour you want to incorporate, and chances are, it won't clash.
The second reason to choose black is, in a way, related to the first.
Black themed outfits can be very helpful on those days when you are really in a rush but want to look presentable.
I mean, we still want to look chic and well put together, even if we don't have that much time to 'put ourselves together.'
Just take a look in your 'all black wardrobe' and you'll probably find a few black items that you quite like.
Those simple treasures will transform your look in a matter of minutes.
Another benefit of an all black wardrobe is that it makes life a lot simpler when it comes to laundry.
Ever have those clothes that you are never really sure how to wash?
Many people find that they get more wears out of black themed outfits. To illustrate, if you wear a bright pink dress, chances are people will notice if you turn up in it 2 days later.
It just seems that you need to leave a bigger gap when you wear brighter coloured clothes, because they tend to stand out more.
Whereas, if you have a big selection of black in your wardrobe, you can wear the same simple shirt a couple of times in the same week, if you need to, without getting stares.
The final benefit of an all black wardrobe is that it reduces your chance of looking awkward and oddly different.
Like we said before, a lot of people tend to wear black so this makes it easier to fit in with others around you, if that's what you're looking for.
Also, black is a very 'safe' colour since it can look brilliant on a wide range of skin tones.
Outfits that feature black normally mean that you can look good without bringing the wrong kind of attention to yourself.
I enjoyed musing about and writing this unusual post! If you enjoyed reading, please share.
