Queen of the Night: Black 'n Easy


Black is the Queen of all colors. Always. Again and again.  And as a blonde, you have an advantage over brunettes: the immediate stark contrast. You have bling without the jewels as your hair gives light.

But never fear, us non-blondes still have fun. We read more and have existentialist fears.

Analysis of the outfits: above, a beautifully tailored jacket is key. Wear boyfriend jeans with converse, you'll still look gorgeously sharp.


As with every outfit, you need to determine who is the star: here, it's obviously the motorcycle jacket. We'd prefer one sans the metal, but it's okay. Because the metal on the jacket is the cherry on the cake, everything else is quiet (hence a black ring instead of a bling ring). Nothing else is needed. Fabulous.


The diaphanous shirt gets top billing here. The shoes and shades give it an edge with lux rock 'n roll.


Pointy pumps say: sexy. Always. The sleeveless top is the balance to naked feet in high heels. Bare arms, bare arches. So you look good without the coat. Makes sense, no?

Remember: it is always about proportion.
