High Street Fashion:: Black Brings Sexy Back

Black Brings Sexy Back in High Street Fashion

What is it about the color of black? In high street fashion it's a sign of elegance.

A Little History: "Black first became a fashionable color for men in Europe in the 17th century, in the courts of Italy and Spain. In the 19th century, it was the fashion for men both in business and for evening wear, in the form of a black coat whose tails came down the knees. 

For women's fashion, the defining moment was the invention of the simple black dress by Coco Chanel in 1926. Thereafter, a long black gown was used for formal occasions, while the simple black dress could be used for everything else. The designer Karl Lagerfeld, explaining why black was so popular, said: "Black is the color that goes with everything. If you're wearing black, you're on sure ground. 

Skirts have gone up and down and fashions have changed, but the black dress has not lost its position as the essential element of a woman's wardrobe. The fashion designer Christian Dior said, "elegance is a combination of distinction, naturalness, care and simplicity, and black exemplified elegance."

So with this thought I created a high street fashion collage. First a gorgeous picture of fashion model Rosie Tupper in her pose on Austrilia Bondi Beach for ELLE VIETNAM 2013.

In this high street fashion collage I chose:

1. Joie "Devanie Beaded Silk Top" from Harvey Nicols priced at $250
2. A pair of PREEN "Leather Front Ted Slim Pants" priced at $1542 from Boutique 1.
3. A Micheal Kors "Black Leather Satchel Handbag" priced at $358 from Lord & Taylor.
4.  A pair of Rihanna for River Island sandals.
