To compensate for a lack of color, try to be more adventurous with cut or style. This romper adds interest with lines crossing the neckline, creating dimension and a futuristic edge.

Little Black Dress
Every woman needs a little black dress. But as much as we all love Audrey Hepburn, her rendition can skew a little traditional. For a more modern, special twist, try a dress that is asymmetrical or has unique design details.
For a night on the town — whether it's a dinner with your boyfriend or a gala — look for a classic black number that will be unique and beautiful. For the extra touches of glamour, look for fun embellishments like lace, sequin and mesh.
Whether it's a dress, bag, or accessory, leather will instantly amp up any outfit. If you're against animal cruelty, look for pieces made of vegan leathers (in other words, not using animal skins) for more sustainable options.
Texture and Print
All black outfits can sometimes feel one-dimensional and flat. To make sure you aren’t falling into a fashion rut, look for pieces that incorporate different fabrics and textures.
When buying black pieces, look for solid separates that you can wear with different things that you already own. Thus black blouse, for instance, could be tucked into a professional skirt but also easily dressed down with a pair of skinny jeans.
