9 Black Pieces To Buy At Abercrombie Right Now — Because Black On Black Is A Way Of Life
I used to make a conscious effort to add color to my wardrobe. My closet is a sea of black, grey, denim, and maybe some burgundy, navy, and dark green. For some reason I felt like I *had* to throw in some brights every now and then to mix it up, but those pieces were only ever worn once or twice before heading to no man's land (aka, the back of some shelf hidden by things that I actually do wear). By now I've accepted the truth: my daily uniform is black. If I'm not wearing black on black, it makes up at least half of my look on any given day. Simple, mix-and-match-able, and effortlessly understated. Throw on an LBD and some black booties, and you can go practically anywhere.
In honor of Black Friday, we've teamed up with Abercrombie & Fitch to round up nine black pieces your rotation is craving right now. Whether you're looking to add to your monochrome stash or you're just crossing over into the black-on-black life (insert smiley devil emoji), these can all be justified as necessities. And the best part is, they all go together just as well as they'll work with your current mainstays.
1. The Lace-Up Top
Slim Lace-up Tee, $34, Abercrombie & Fitch
The lace-up detail totally dresses up this classic long sleeve tee — but not too much. Wear it with your favorite A-line mini and booties for a night out, or some boyfriend jeans and sneakers during the day.
2. The All-Purpose Midi Skirt
Stretch Midi Skirt, $44, Abercrombie & Fitch.
This is the kind of skirt that you'll wear for years in a million different ways. Wear it with a chunky turtleneck and boots for work, or with a crop top and leather moto jacket at night. It's hard to go wrong here.
3. The Statement Jacket
Vegan Leather Moto Jacket, $120, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Like your trusty leather jacket, but with a little wow factor. The faux fur collar is ultra-cozy, a little luxe, and thrown over a plain white tee will make you feel like you really put on an outfit. Pair it with jeans, dresses, or skirts, and effortlessly channel your inner Jon Snow.
4. The Shirt Dress
Check Shirt Dress, $68, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Shirt dresses are great because they look so polished with so little work. Pair it with ankle booties as-is, or throw a sweater on top and tights below when it gets a little chilly.
5. The Sweater Coat
Shaggy Knit Coat, $98, Abercrombie & Fitch.
This super-cozy cardigan is like the going-out version of a bathrobe. You'll look completely put together, give off a little boho vibe, and be ridiculously comfortable.
6. The Suede Mini
Faux Suede A-Line Skirt, $58, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Get in on the '70s skirt game but with an understated angle. Black suede is way more timeless than camel, and it's easier to dress up, too.
7. The Sweater Dress
Ribbed Overlay Sweater Dress, $54, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Sweater dresses make fall/winter day-to-night dressing a breeze, and black makes it all the more versatile. The overlay detail on this piece adds just the right amount of interest.
8. The New Collared Shirt
Lace-Up Pocket Shirt, $58, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Like the lace-up tee but a little fancier. (I really like the lace-up trend, OK?) A fresh alternative to your standard black button-up, this shirt will look just as good with jeans as a leather skirt.
9. The Everyday Cross-Body
Vegan Leather Saddlebag, $48, Abercrombie & Fitch.
Minimal, functional, and easily paired with pretty much everything in your closet. Plus, the vegan leather will hold up to winter weather — even if you get caught in a flurry.
