    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.

    Inspired by ALDO's own fall lineup of black soles — from heels to loafers to over-the-knee styles — we're exploring six looks that were made to stand out…but not in the chromatic way. Instead of relying on the flash of bright hues, these outfits become statement-making through form, fit, texture, and pattern. Ahead, check out the fall ensembles that even the color-crazed can't resist.

    The Less Is More
    Minimalist color meets minimalist shape in a long, column shift dress. For a touch of intrigue, the subtle game changer is a brown, leather insert at the neckline that gives the illusion of a layered tee.

    A tall boot adds to the look, without distracting from it, with a clean, sleek shape and just a flash of gold at the heel.

    The Business Of Basic
    A fresh way to suit up without going the solid-black, two-piece route is with a printed, tailored option that still features goes-with-everything shades. Unexpected racer stripes lend a more relaxed vibe to the buttoned-up look.

    With a slim-fit leg on the pant, this outfit pairs well with a pointed, patent bootie that’s cool, edgy, and a bit more relaxed than a classic pump.

    The High Gloss
    This ensemble shines head to toe (literally, of course) thanks to the lustrous satin of its all-black pieces.
