Black is the new Black

One year it’s brown.
Another year it’s grey.
And yet another, it’s burgundy.

Each fall and winter, a color tries to nudge out the classic black to become the next “New Black” for the season. These newcomers seem to have a freshness that adds life to the essence of ebony in every woman’s wardrobe.

Black is Back @ Zara

However, this 2012 season has brought back the fashion favorite. Black, in all of its glory, was seen on runways, in lookbooks and now on selling floors.  From fringed and belted coats to textured slim and a-line skirts to leather pants and dresses, black will be an essential addition to your assortment.
