Always fashionable, always seasonless, and always chic, black never goes out of style. Keep your urban noir on high by heading to The Shops at Columbus Circle to get plenty of wow pieces and the latest spin on flattering basics. And remember: Dressing in black is an iconic state of mind in New York City.
First stop: The Madewell Pop-Up at J. Crew for every girl’s go-to: a pair of high-rise skinny jeans ($128). These second-skin deep-dyed jeans in a carbondale wash are available in four lengths for customized sizing. Consult with an on-site expert for the best fit.
On to L.K. Bennett for a deceptively demure, yet sexy little black dress. With its dramatic square neckline, subtle keyhole detail, and fluted silhouette, the Lou Black Fitted Dress ($475) will take you from board room to date night with élan.
Are you a rocker girl at heart? Keep them guessing with the L-Taras fitted black leather moto jacket ($698) from Diesel. It mixes edgy (padded shoulders, asymmetric zip) with a touch of femininity (lace inserts) and goes with just about everything.
The Stuart Weitzman black HiLand boots ($798) are thigh-high and designed for all-season wear. Made from stretch suede, you can slip them over your super skinny jeans right now. Imagine sporting them with short shorts or a mini-skirt come summer.
Accessories matter. We are crushing on the handcrafted Blakely bucket bag ($398) in jet black from Michael Kors. With both top handles and a cross-body strap for versatility, it will complement any outfit.
Ask any fashion editor: You don’t want to go anywhere without a pair of dark shades. The latest round Gucci frames ($400) will add a touch of glam to your look with their glitter-dusted temples.
