A black outfit is a powerhouse one and a statement in itself. We would label it as a fashion classic. What always intrigues us is the fact that even with a uniform colour code, there are just so many personal facets to this look depending on the wearer. One of the most popular approaches to dressing up, a black outfit look often comes to your rescue universally when faced with different sartorial situations. We often find ourselves resorting to this colour code when dressing up formal for work, glam-ing up for a party or just to soothe our mood. The look always promises a certain iota of chic and a feeling of something powerful and sexy. Whether you like to play by the rules of fashion or not, we all have those black staples in our wardrobe in the form of a blazer, the LBD, a shirt, pants or skirts which are used as styling permutations.
With this style shoot, Zariin celebrates fashion’s favourite look with four different all black outfits – each distinguished by the wearer and their approach. Each look is highlighted with jewelry from Zariin’s all gold collection Gold Blooms. Jewelry and especially gold always pop against all black outfit looks which also make a perfect canvas for jewelry lovers like us. An eternal combination, these work beautifully together and one of the easiest ways to achieve the glamour is with jewelry.

When dosed in the right amount, they reflect only the very pure.” Her approach is well translated into this style shoot.
