There are countless memes dedicated to those ladies who subscribe to a limited palette of black, black, and more black: “I like my closet like my soul, or my coffee.” In other words, loving all black isn’t so much a preference as it is a lifestyle. Whether you’re all in like a minimalist who worked at Calvin Klein in the ’90s or would simply like to dip a toe in the blackest waters, get inspired by these looks and shop the key pieces that—it must be said—just look better in black.
A little bit business, a little bit party—the black shirtdress is a classic for a reason.
