Black is, well, the new black. And it’s adding a little downtown noir to your wardrobe and home, but with an elegant twist. Great rocker-chic staples (fringe, chain, metal accents, bomber jackets, satin pants) in the hue confirm that the trend is here to stay. Seek out classic silhouettes with updated features, such as jackets with cold shoulders and gathered sleeves, mini bags with large embellishments, and straight-leg pants with lace-up details. The fade to black brings a few friends for your LBD to your closet, too. If you’re not ready to be fully clad in the darkest of dark, go for touches in and around your home. A simple black lampshade can completely change the feel of your office, for example, and black linens matched to chargers will modernize your next dinner party. And for the all-out trendsetters, it just might be time to trade in your white car for its raven twin.
