They say, “one is never over or underdressed in black.” It’s that unassumingly stylish colour that you know will work when all else fails. A black T-shirt goes with everything, a black blazer brings the whole look together in seconds, and an LBD, well there’s nothing an LBD can’t do. Unfussy, understated, and timeless, it’s that one colour you can bet your life on. 

But while these essentials do their job well, we’re looking for ways to take black beyond the basic. From cutesy peplums adorned with pearls, and crisp chic contrast belted tops, to edgy leather patch pants and hey-oh-senorita slit skirts, here’s our edit of 10 black separates to take your black wardrobe up a notch.
