Fashion-Isha Guest Blog: Ways To Wear Black

Blogger Sharon Langert (of Fashion-Isha fame!) is the best person to share fashion ideas as a follow-up to Mimi Hecht's post on why Every Mom Must Own A Black Dress


As much as we say we love to get away from it, black is certainly the easiest way to dress glamorously. It is the recipe for no fail chic: it is slimming, hides spills and stains and is the perfect backdrop to showcase...YOU! 
Black need not be boring either. As seen in these photos, the simplest black pieces can look amazing when paired with the perfect shoe, belt or statement necklace. Here are some simple yet fabulous black dresses to choose from:
Antik Batik Bead Embellished Dress $102

Halston Heritage Satin Jersey Dress  $134

Marc by Marc Jacobs Knitted Cotton Dress: $120

Ruffled Satin Tank Dress $134
Modal/spandex hoodie dress $64.99

And another simple way to wear black is of course by pairing a fabulous skirt with a pretty top, and've got your own custom LBD (little black dress):
1. Catherine Malandrino Silk Blouse $158, 2. Z spoke by Zac Posen A-line Skirt $94.50, 3. BCBG Pleated Maxi Skirt $172.80, 4. Ruched Jersey Skirt $93
To keep these looks modest, and because we all come in different sizes, you may need to add a shell and/or pencil skirt under some of these pieces.

Now, don't forget a few great accessories to really make these looks pop. Here are some fab statement necklaces and couple cool belts too:
Crystal and chain necklace $138

Rhinstone and Chain Necklace $68

Calvin Klein Faux Python Belt $34.99

Mesh Belt: $101.20
With black the possibilities are endless. How do you wear black?
