Color reached an apex this year. Barbie pink, aqua blue, kelly green, and every other bright shade on the color wheel was plastered across collections, from Zara to Valentino. Even as we speak, hot pink is slated to be one of the major handbag colors for fall. And while everyone's fixation remains on the boldest and brightest hues, I'm switching gears momentarily to refocus on the most classic "color" of them all: black. 

I've probably bought more tops and dresses in ultra-saturated colors than anyone else this year, and while it's a trend I still endorse, there's something that just feels right about wearing all black in the fall. Compared to the out-there hues circling around this season, it's a color that's forgiving, timeless, and extremely versatile. Not that anyone needs a reason to shop fashion's most appreciated non-color color, I'm giving you a few below. Keep scrolling for 30 stylish all-black pieces to get you right for the season.

After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content.

Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
