How To Wear Black Now

Perfect Pitch

“Any colour as long as it’s black” was the fashion diktat throughout the ’80s and ’90s, and now, following a run of technicolour seasons, we’re returning to the dark side once more. Pick the right pieces and suddenly black feels fresh and fabulously cool again. Here’s how…

One Of The Boys

The shorts-and-shirt duo is set to be your SS23 uniform. Worked entirely in black it makes for a stylish pairing – the playful silhouette offering the perfect foil to black’s sometimes serious side.

Jet Set

Relaxed separates in premium materials are your route to the new stealth glamour; jet-black cashmere and butter-soft leather speak to uptown luxe, while sculptural accessories add to the pared-back polish.

Mastering Mono

The exception to the all-black rule is monochrome styling in timeless ebony and ivory. Practise winter’s subtle spin on power dressing, with tailored pants and a creamy knit as your alternative to the traditional two-piece suit.

Through The Keyhole

No colour conjures a sharper silhouette than black, making it the ideal shade for this season’s cut-out creations. Keep additions understated; it’s all about the architectural line of your dramatic black dress.

The Lavish LBD

The return of the mini brings with it the classic LBD – and it’s a joy to behold. Steer clear of cling and instead embrace flowing lines, fabulous embellishments (like this fluffy feather trim) and dazzling details. The result? Black magic.
