Upgrade Your Basic Black, Just Like Paris

Leave it to our favorite heiress to turn a little jaunt to the hair salon into a basic black style statement from which we can all draw a little Thanksgiving inspiration. The ever-trendsetting Paris Hilton wore a pretty black knit mini dress with an A-line skirt reminiscent of those girly, mod silhouettes of the late '60s, but fully modernized by her fitted leather jacket and sexy pumps. (All in black, of course.) The sartorial cherry on top of this look was her chain necklace, festooned with turquoise rosettes that added just a splash of color to this otherwise minimal ensemble.

As lovely Paris reminded us when she was spotted at the airport last month wearing the ultimate airport-chic jumpsuit, basic black is anything but boring when done right.

Whether you're going for classy or cool; goth, or post-punk, the key to rocking basic black is to make it your own. How? First, stick with flattering silhouettes and complementary makeup and accessories. Don't be afraid to tastefully combine different styles, as Paris did here with her jacket and dress combo. As for hair and makeup, that's where you can choose to get creative, or tone things down even more to let your black outfit be the star attraction. Again, Paris did just that, opting for a glossy nude lipstick, and a simple half up half down 'do that was elegant and simple. We love her minimal approach to street style these days, especially since it's a look we can replicate ourselves.

See how Paris worked that black, and consider how you apply your own style inspiration do basic black your way this weekend. Now, that's something to be thankful for.
