I think it started with my plan to wear nothing but black, white, grey and denim through winter. I know it was a preference before, but it settled in when I started that loose guide for what I’d wear. Somewhere along the way, I ended up wearing a lot of black. A lot, a lot. And I love it.

Often I’m told that I should wear more colour. From my family, my sister especially, from readers of this blog (hi guys!) and from those lovely, pull no punches folks on Instagram. Sometimes it’s subtle compliments when I do wear colour, sometimes it’s a flat-out, black on black again, really!?

What can I say, I’m a big fan of black.

Black on black and more black is so easy to do and throw together at the last minute. When in doubt, add more black layers, and you are good to go. Most people will advocate a pop of colour, and I can get behind that. Sometimes. This outfit, for example, the gold accessories were good, but it wasn’t until I swapped in these yellow mirrored aviators for the normal ones that I wear, that it really popped.

A thank you shout out has to go to the team at Yours Clothing.

They sent me this fab jumpsuit. I ordered up a few sizes because I’m long in the torso and tall. I went a little far and would recommend maybe up-sizing one size, but two certainly wasn’t necessary. The back of this baby is made entirely of lace with an exposed silver zip. It’s gorgeous. But much too chilly for this time of year even in beautiful Queensland. Worth a look if you wanted to explore the jumpsuit trend but are shy about committing loads of cash to it.

What say you? More black or less for you? Do you think that plus-size women who are embracing fashion avoid black a little because they are rebelling against years of conditioning that says they ONLY look good in black? You know, the whole slimming thing? I know I felt that way for a while, I wonder if it was just me. Or do you just really not like black?
