On my lunch break the other day, I read this article from Thought Catalog about the Psychological Reason Some Women Love Wearing All Black. I was intrigued because, I too, wear all black ensembles all the time. Weather it’s at work or when I go out with friends, a monochromatic black look is my go-to. The article revealed that women wear all black for a number of reasons, the first being to reclaim their power. Wearing a black outfit can provide a “shield” from certain emotions, the article says. It also says that a preference of the color black indicates prestige and power.
While I’m not sure if I wear all black as a shield or to hide my emotions, I do know that when I wear an all-black ensemble, it’s a power move. Ever since I was a young girl, I turned to fashion as a way to channel confidence. In a way, it did act like a shield against people who made fun of me because I was bigger. I felt that if I had a great outfit on, no one could say anything to hurt my feelings. So when I need an outfit to level up my confidence, I usually turn to black. And this look is no different. While I can’t wear this outfit anywhere but to the club or out to dinner, I have been craving a sexy, all black look that looks killer on my curves. I started with this Daisy Black Halterneck Cold Shoulder Frill Top from Pink Clove. I love this top for so many reasons, but mostly because it incorporates my two favorite trends: mesh and a cold shoulder. I paired the top with this Daphne Black PVC Mini Skirt, which is also from Pink Clove, for a super sexy look. Say hello to my new power moves look!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size UK 22, which is a size US 18—my usual size, in both the Daphne Black PVC Mini Skirt and Daisy Black Halterneck Cold Shoulder Frill Top from Pink Clove. They both fit perfectly!
