Women Fashion Trends - Black Vintage Inspired Clothing on the Runway

From austere dresses worn by Protestant Pilgrims to black gowns of mourning Victorian women, black clothing can be termed multifactorial as it represents solemnity, mystery, and sexuality.

By the early 1900s, black became a fashionable colour eventually turning into a hot favourite of stylish women all over the world, thanks to famous fashion designer Coco Chanel.

Black apparel is always prominent on the fashion runway year in year out through every and fashion season.

The other day, as I sat back and watched a fashion show on latest women’s styles in black, I couldn’t but be amazed at the wonderful styles all created with black fabrics. And though most were really sexy cuts, they fitted and flowed in beautifully fluid manners. They were very feminine and exquisitely chic.

From sophisticated suiting and lovely dresses to corporate chic separates and evening gowns with detailing of feathered trails and beads, the black clothing designs were combined with rich shades of wonderful satin, peacock(y) colours, and embellishments.

They are matured, and sexy, elegant and utterly stylish.
That’s what black is all about! When you wear black clothing, you appear to be in total control.
