The most simple and chic way to dip your toe into all those head-turning fall trends you’ve been dying to try is in black. Because, as city slickers know all too well: everything looks good in this wardrobe essential hue. While summer styles might have been rife with head-to-toe white looks that took you through the hottest days of the year, it’s time to turn your attention to a deeper tone that evokes styles of both elegant and edgy proportions.
Start reaching for those black jeans that make everything look more elevated, pull black blazers out of the back of your closet, and make sure to have a statement top (or ten!) on hand in the classic tone. Whether you’re keeping it simple in denim and a cotton T-shirt or going all-out in an asymmetric silhouette that has all eyes on you, there’s nothing that an all-black look for fall can’t handle. Boring you don’t have to be, however void of color your looks might begin to seem—just take it from these fashion-loving ladies below. Prepare to be inspired.
