Women think of all colours expect the basic and most under-loved colour – Black.  It’s plain but classic and can be paired with just about anything.  The advantage of wearing this colour is that it can be styled for a formal, casual and ethnic depending on the occasion. But a full black pant-suit commands attention almost instantly. Here is how you can nail the look like a pro.

Style it
To look stylish and casual at work, you can pair a long black coat with a classic black and white striped long sleeve tee. For the rest of the outfit, wear a pair of black skinny jeans and a pair of black or white pumps or mid heels  Add a black leather clutch bag to make it look professional and stylish.

A black blazer with grey pants or checkered pencil pants and a white shirt adds sophistication to your form.

Experiment
You can wear a black long coat with a  knit sweater. Pair it with black skinny jeans or you could also wear a black crew neck knit sweater.  To make this outfit a chic, wear a pair of black ankle strap or open toe heels to complete the look  .

Dos and Don’ts
The fit is crucial, make sure the shoulders are not too wide, and the sleeves are not too long. Also make sure that it fits your silhouette and it is not over sized.  

Accessories
A classic watch, pearl earrings, silk scarf, black pumps or boots is all you need. A black briefcase or a leather tote will make you look chic.

If you have to style for formal party or a dance party, chokers or chunky neck pieces add to a high fashion statement look.
