On a super nice day last week, it seems that every NYC gal was wearing the same uniform. Black leather jacket, black leggings or pants, black boots or black sneakers. I guess I'm guilty of the same. But there's a reason that happens. My theory is that black simply works. Every. Single. Time. Doesn't matter if it's the bitter winter, or if we're on the cusp of spring. There's something mysterious and elegant about an all black look. It seems to say, "Don't talk to me, I'm busy and got things to do" and also "I bet you're curious about where I'm headed." Either way, it is always chic, always super cool. Now I confess, the knit top is navy blue, but still. It just works. I'm sure you can recreate this outfit with pieces from your own closet right now, but just in case, shop my picks below for an "all black errthang" moment.
