Black is a magical shade in the fashion world. It creates the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. It’s also typically the shade of choice when opting for an effortless way to look chic. As Coco Chanel once said, “Women think about all colors except the absence of color. I have already said that black has it all.” Today’s Fashionista shows us that black truly does have it all and then some. She mixes up her not-so-basic blacks with a long sleeve henley, black distressed skinny jeans, and black boots. However, what really adds a twist to her outfit is her jacket – it not only has a vibrant pink lining on the inside but also has a muted pink and orange pattern on the outside. This Fashionista manages to bring her all-black outfit together with her shirt, jeans, and boots, while still standing out through the subdued colors in her dark coat. Her jacket proves that black still has it all, despite a little bit of competition.

How To: For a similar style, try Juicy Couture’s “Alice Plaid Coat.” Although the coat isn’t black, it has an idea similar to today’s example. The light blue on the plaid is low-key against a neutral color, and this coat also has a fun pink lining that peeks out near the hood. If you’re feeling super creative, try adding your own lining to your favorite jacket. Remember, you don’t necessarily have to stick with black coats or pink linings – style is all about working with or challenging trends and making something your own.
