“But does it come in black?”
Navy has been making a strong debut for fall, but black is a color that will always be classic no matter what the season or year. I remember when I was growing up, I always wondered what all the hype was about black, and why my mom loved wearing it so much. As I have gotten older, I have begun to understand the perfection that is black clothing and accessories, and that my mom has always been right about the color (but moms are right about everything, and you know it is true)! Black is such a classic color, pretty much goes with everything, does a great job sliming the body, and is suitable for day and night. There is always room in your closet for more black items, whether they are ruffled, cotton, or leather! Here are 8 things you need in black this fall!
1. Black Denim
Everyone, and I mean everyone needs a great pair of black denim! They make outfits look so amazing, and are perfect for the winter and fall. Make sure that they fit well, have a rise that you love, and are a style that you are going to wear a lot! I love these the ones that I am wearing so much! They are very sculpting and comfortable.
2. A Great Black Tee
Whether it is solid black or striped, or long or short sleeved, you need a black tee in your life. They are great for layering under cardigans or jackets, and do a lovely job of being a substitute for the classic white tee (except they are a little more unpredictable). I love the striped long-sleeved one I am wearing above, and cannot wait to wear it with leggings on a cozy fall day!
3. Black Booties
Black booties are so on trend right now, and I cannot get enough of them! They make outfits look so sleek, especially when worn with black skinny jeans! I got a beautiful pair a few weeks ago and I cannot wait to share them with you on the blog soon!
4. A Black Cardi
You ladies know how much I love cardigans, and having one in black is a must! I am obsessed with this long-lined one! It would look so stunning paired with jeans or a skirt and high-waisted boots!
5. A Flat-Brimmed or Floppy Hat
Nothing says fall quite like a floppy or flat-brimmed hat! They take your outfit from ZERO to FALL real quick (yes I laughed real hard as I typed that lol)! If you have not tried a hat like this for fall, try one this season! You will love how they make you feel! Plus, they pull an outfit together so beautifully!
6. A Little Black Dress
You always need a LBD in your closet. They are the definition of classic, and are one of the best things to always have on hand. Pair it with your black booties and your hat for a more casual look, or dress it up with some heels! For a cooler fall day, try a LBD with full-length or three-quarter length sleeves.
7. A Black Bag
You also always need a black purse! I think that the perfect basic bag collection includes a black purse, brown/tan purse, and a colored or patterned purse. Having a black one is perfect for pairing with those black booties!
8. A Black Jacket
Finally, you need a black jacket! You know that I love my jackets for fall, and think that having a go-to black one for fall is a must! I love the faux leather jacket I have, which gives my outfits extra edge. I also think a black moto or bomber jacket would be a great addition to your fall wardrobe!
I hope this gives you all some closet inspiration for fall! You can never go wrong with more black pieces, so if it comes in black, get it in black, Babe!
Thanks for stopping by, Lovely!
