Black compression - fashionably super easy or not?

- Advertising -

Many choose black compression as a "safe bet" so that it goes with everything in the closet. But that's actually a fallacy. If you look at the outfits at the end, you come to an important insight:

Black doesn't go with everything - it just doesn't get in the way.

But what is really the wrong thinking?

It's like all the colors in your closet. If you're not combining them with classic jeans, you need a little more sensitivity to find the right combination. You can stay in one color family, such as B. warm or cold colors, or perhaps set accents with complementary colors. These are the colors that are opposite in the color wheel.

Let's take black as a color, as I always recommend with beige colors, then it also needs a reference point in your look. Perhaps it can be found in your accessories or forms the basic color of your outfit and another color just sets a highlight. Like in my autumn look in this article, where not only mine Mediven 550 in black with the fashion element Nature fits in beautifully, but also casually frames the long coat in an otherwise very monotonous black.

What if black compression is not supposed to play the main role?

Yes, even in my wardrobe it is rather an exception that black as a color plays the main role in an outfit. I personally look very dominant in all black, unless the garment is elegant. But if you do go for black flat knit compression, what to do if you don't want to focus on it?

Use a uniform look for the rest. Try combining pieces that are relatively solid in color. Give them life with a little highlight with a different colored (or even black) belt or other accessory. This way you don't give the compression too much space, but you still let it play a supporting role.

Pattern as a mood booster

I'm honest, the darker seasons give me a lot of trouble. This year I am trying to bridge the initial winter depression with constant, lighthouse-like candle consumption and gently rock the soul from the inside with tea into spring. Unfortunately, I cannot wear these two measures, so I consciously resort to patterns that lift my mood. The Nature pattern from medi is my absolute favorite because it reminds me of the colorful autumn leaves and the spring-like euphoria when the first buds appear. Somehow it has a calming effect on me and lets me look calmly on the run-up to Christmas. Make sure to try the pattern with your next recipe. You can combine it with any color and even choose whether it can adorn your legs or arms in one or two colors.
