Some may lay claim to black on black being boring and basic. I, in fact, see it as an extremely creative outlet.

Tip 1: Picking a single color palette allows you to experiment with textures.

Tip 2: Black is one of those colors that you can buy very frugally without it looking cheap (tan- not so much.)

Tip 3: You can choose any pop of color that tickles your fancy.

Tip 4: Black = classy, so it is okay to show a little more skin

Tip 5: DO NOT mix your shades of black if one or more is faded
