In addition to making "Holy crap, it's 9:15!" mornings and "Is it possible I gained 10 pounds this week?" evenings way less traumatic, wearing charcoal hues top-to-toe is just plain fun. Keeping the color palette simple leaves room to play with texture, silhouette, and accessories — without looking like you got dressed in your grandma's closet. The new Nicole x Missguided collection (a collab with style icon Nicole Scherzinger) is truly a fashion girl's monochromatic playground. Here, our style editor Annie Georgia Greenberg shows us how to wear black for all occasions, but it gets even better: You can snag her looks by shopping the exact pieces at Missguided. 'Cause, while we've got mad love for some sweet pastels and ladies in red, a woman in black wins every time.
