We've always been drawn to the impeccably crafted all-black-everything ensemble — the ultimate lazy-girl hack to dressing. Curating a monochrome wardrobe will keep you from milling over outfit options in the a.m., since nothing can ever mismatch. And, black just looks so damn chic, it's the safest bet when you're not sure if you're over- or under-dressed.
But, just because you've committed to going dark doesn't mean you can't have fun playing with textures, fabrics, and shapes. This is the key to taking the charcoal palette up a notch, after all. It's the New Yorker way, and hey, it can be yours, too. Ahead, see our all-black picks for fall that are anything but snoozy.
