happy halloween

back in the 80s and early 90s, everyone wore black. in the 80s, it was all about goth and new wave; in the 90s, it was minimalism (how boring!). but the black of today is different—it's prettier, has interesting details and texture, and is more open to styling via fun accessories. what better day to wear all black then than on our new holiday halloween (no work today!). here are the fash pack's tips on how to wear black in the mid-00s:
1. wearing all-black allows you to make your shoes the star of your outfit. nothing could be more attention-grabbbing than an animal print like vanessa's stiletto pumps.

2. mix textures, like xeng's smooth jersey tube, cotton twill mini and sparkly vest thingy.

3. counter the severity of black with a fun, funky accessory like tina's marni-inspired necklace.

4. show some skin! but control just how much. if you go short, cover up on top. if you reveal your shoulders, keep your length at the knee like daphne.
