The Interior Designer Look: Basic Black


We all know that wearing black makes us appear thinner but it’s also the color of choice for many interior designers. You can always tell an interior designer is in a room by their uniform: basic black.

Maybe it makes us look artsy or chic, but a lot of interior designers wear  a black outfit. Except when meeting with clients who have pets that shed. Then I wear black leather, the perfect pet hair repellent.

My favorite interior designer, Kelly Wearstler, wears her basic black uniform in a whole new way. I am beyond showing that much thigh as a 50ish woman, but she looks fabulous.


To prove my point, here was the press photo of the cast of the Million Dollar Decorators show on Bravo which ran from 2011-2013.

I tend to wear more colorful clothes, but fell in love with this JJill Grace sweater tunic and purchased 2 block ones and a blue one. This sweater is so soft and comfortable that I ran back to the store to get more.

I have to be in showrooms and attend client meetings so my outfits have to look fresh even after 6 hours of sitting and standing.


You can easily wear this outfit for work or out to dinner without changing clothes.


Which reminds me, I need to head over to a client meeting.
