Summer’s over and so is color. Call us dreary, but we’ve been waiting for the moment it’s okay to stop pretending we like wearing colorful linen pieces and just tell the truth: we like wearing all-black outfits composed of heavy wool and leather. So, with black clothing firmly back on the menu, let’s dive in.

Legendary designer Yohji Yamamoto once said: “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy but mysterious. But above all, black says this: “I don’t bother you, don’t bother me.”” Black is the ultimate styling tool, essentially. If you’re going to wear one color, make sure it’s black, and if you still want to insert flashes of color, they’ll look best when set against a black backdrop.

The thing with black clothing, though, is that if you’re building all-black outfits, you need to look beyond the color. Look to textures and materials to give your outfit personality. Below, we’ve put together the best black clothing to cop right now from SSENSE, and it’s defined by beautiful materials and interesting textures.

Another major positive of the seasonal change is that massive coats reenter the wardrobe. Lu'u Dan's Duster Coat almost trails on the floor it's that big. As we all know: the bigger the coat, the better the outfit.

XA-Pro 3D Low-Top Sneakers

$130

Salomon

Buy at ssense

Salomon's heavily technical designs look about as good as they possibly can when dressed in black. We love Salomon's bright color palettes but there's something so raw about the XA-Pro 3D when it's blacked out.
