Let’s face it: Black is always the new black. It’s flattering on every figure and is so easy to incorporate into outfits. Black is the perfect canvas to play with trends and new color combinations. To celebrate the notorious Day After Thanksgiving, we are dedicating to our readers three different Black looks that you can wear while shopping, or watching mobs of shoppers, today and every other day.
BLACK & PINK
All black leather can seem intimidating and dark. To avoid the dominatrix mode, soften the look with pastels and delicate jewelry. Try a slim fitting black blouse with leather (or faux leather) pants, all under an oversized three-quarter length sleeve pink coat. Pair with your favorite black leather ankle boots to elongate your legs like the Acne Black Colt Ankle Boot. Add a touch of femininity with a woven gold cuff and rose pink crystal ear clips.

BLACK & GOLD
It’s one of those tried and true color combinations that remain timeless. Adding gold chains and gold lines to a black monochromatic outfit transforms the look into one with character and sass. Jill Sander’s wool pencil skirt with a linear gold leaf print begs for attention. Wear with a simple fitted sweater and pair with classic black pumps. Accessorize with different textures to add dimension to the look. A Chanel Vintage Quilted Mini Flap Bag is always a good idea. To offset the gold in the skirt and the simplicity of the sweater, top off the look with a chunky gold necklace (like the Eddie Borgo Supra Link Necklace that we’ve shown in previous looks).

BLACK & COBALT
FACT: Everyone needs a little black dress. This peplum little black dress with three-quarter length sleeves is perfect for winter. Raoul’s Lydia dress can transition effortlessly from work to evening cocktails with the addition of some bold cobalt accessories. Couple the dress with extravagant earrings to draw in the light and sport a daring cobalt clutch to capture wandering eyes. Wear with semi-sheer black tights to lengthen the legs. To bring in even more attention to those lean gams, dress your feet in a pair of cobalt suede pumps. Round off the look with elbow-length leather gloves like Kenneth Cole’s Leather and Knit Gloves.
