45 Ways to Wear Black

From Garbage Chic to See-Through Dresses, How to Wear Black This Fall

— October 1, 2009 — Luxury
There's no doubt that autumn has arrived, and with its chilly breeze and gilded leaves also comes an onslaught of the shade we all turn to when temperatures drop: black.

With this ubiquitous color—or lack of color—found in every closet, how to wear black is just a matter of adventurousness. From chained leggings to wet black tees, here's how to wear black this season!

Implications - In the fashion world, outrageous concepts that are original and unseen are among the most popular consumer trends, as buyers want to feel original. However, certain styles and colors are classic and though they may never go out of style, companies that want to stay ahead of the game have to incorporate original twists into these age-old motifs to maintain consumer interest.
