When a plain black dress is the perfect cut, you really don’t need anything else.
That’s not to say you couldn’t add to it: a pop of colour by way of a bright belt, lashings of jewellery, a dainty scarf perhaps. But once again, it’s purely optional. Off-duty model Yulia Lobova keeps hers plain and simple with one of Prada’s thin black bow belts and black high-heeled sandals.
The cut of the dress – the slight flare to the hem, the belled sleeve, the keyhole neck – all give it a hint of 1960s, but all kept to a subtly modern level.
Against her striking platinum blonde hair Yulia proves that all-black can win out if done right.
