Trend Takeout: 3 All-Black Looks That Are Anything But Basic



It doesn't matter how many times we hear, "[Blank] is the new black." When it comes to style, there's only one shade that will always be both versatile and timeless, not to mention loved by practically everyone. And, that color is, of course, black.
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.
