“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy — but mysterious,” said famed fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto in a 2000 New York Times article. “But above all black says this: I don’t bother you — don’t bother me.”

Dressing head to toe in black is versatile. You can sip on overpriced Americanos, catch a Saturday matinee, or share a Chianti with a stunner. The all-black “uniform” is a no-brainer. It’s dapper, yet casual. Plus, it simplifies getting dressed in the morning.
