As much as we’re into Fall/Winter 2016’s big color trends (red, pale pink, forest green), let’s get real: Nothing will ever replace our beloved black. The darkest shade in the book gets a bad reputation for being snoozy, but we beg to differ-black outfits for winter can be amazingly interesting and chic.

There’s nothing sleeker, more minimalist, and easier to pull off that an all-black outfit, and the shade is able to take on various personalities, from ultra-femme with girly black skirts and silky blouses, to badass with black jeans and an black blazer.

The beauty of all-black? You can mix textures without fear of creating an overly busy ensemble.
