Black and Better than Ever


Sophia Loren once said, “Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got.” This gorgeous gal looks like she knows all about that. Forget your New Year’s resolution to inject color into your closet. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta wear all black.

Perhaps you woke up to a sky that’s an ominous shade of grey, or you listened to darkly dulcet tones of The XX as you got ready – whatever the causation, on some days, there’s no other option than to succumb to an ensemble that’s nothing but noir! Diya from In Her Stilettos did just that, and she did it in a way that’s sexy and elegantly edgy with a form-fitting frock, bold boyfriend blazer, and sexy stilettos. Even more allure is added to her luscious look by glam gloves, lacy tights, a studded bag, and silvery waterfall necklace.

For some ModCloth options for dressing on the dark side, try the Arabian Tights, an obsidian frock like the Star Child Dress, and the Dark Shadows Gloves!

    I love, love, love the shorter (not too short) dress paired with the long blazer. Perfectly juxtaposed!

    Love the pic and the outfit. I’ve been going through a monochromatic thing for the past two days, too. I think it’s due to color overload over the weekend.
