While many in the fashion world look to the runway to determine the next most-sought-after color trends, there’s a proud crew who could not be bothered. From classicists to minimalists to too-cool-for-color It Girls, these women swear by black, white, and every shade of neutral clothing. Where others anticipate the coming and going of spring pastels or autumnal earth tones, these women get their kicks from the potential that the most basic palette presents. And it’s far more than just a wardrobe that always matches.
