The Power of Black


All black is considered a classic. It shows arrogance and confidence at the same time. However, many fear donning this dark hue for fear of looking gothic or like you’re in mourning, but we are here to help change that with this easy guide because black is always right.

Wearing all black doesn’t need be an a massive task, it’s simpler than you think. When you decide to wear all black, the trick is to make sure that the pieces that you’re wearing are actually black. I can’t count the times when I’ve seen people, and myself, wear a ‘black’ T-shirt, only for it to be a dodgy shade of green. So, before you put anything on, just double-check that they’re actually black and not a varying shade of another colour. A classic all black outfit for men is teaming a black shirt and trousers with a black jacket over the top.

If you want to keep your outfit smart then try wearing a black suit or blazer on your outfit. Smarter looks always look better when they’re all in the same shade, especially black, so you’ll struggle to not easily pull this look off. For your footwear, opt for a formal shoe such as a brogue, loafer or a derby to keep in line with the formality of your look.

All black traditional attire? No problem. The important thing here is getting the right fabric as well as the right style. With Agbadas we’ll Advice that your embroidery are in neutral colours ans not go over board with the design.
