The most simple and chic way to dip your toe into all those head-turning fall trends you’ve been dying to try is in black. Because, as city slickers know all too well: everything looks good in this wardrobe essential hue.
While summer styles might have been rife with head-to-toe white looks that took you through the hottest days of the year, it’s time to turn your attention to a deeper tone that evokes styles of both elegant and edgy proportions.
Start reaching for those black jeans that make everything look more elevated, pull black blazers out of the back of your closet, and make sure to have a statement top (or ten!) on hand in the classic tone. Whether you’re keeping it simple in denim and a cotton T-shirt or going all-out in an asymmetric silhouette that has all eyes on you, there’s nothing that an all-black look for fall can’t handle. You don’t have to be boring, just take cues from these Bollywood ladies below who are fellow lovers of chic all-black outfits.
Take cues from Sara Ali Khan and jazz us your basic LBD with dramatic puffy sleeves and touch of glitter on your eyelids.
If you can’t spend more than 10 minutes to get dressed, this one is for you. Throw on a black jumpsuit with a waist-cinching belt, accompanied with gold hoops and stilettos, that promise to take your look from easy to fab in minutes.
If you’re feeling a little extra this party season, embrace it and go all out with a black (ish) gown like Ananya Panday’s. And in case you still feel that this look might get lost in a crowd, go ahead and add a pair of neon heels to the mix for your most OTT outfit yet.
An asymmetrical printed maxi, in hindsight, is a weapon that comes in handy for everything from parties to errands alike. These comfortable, waist-cinching, height-adding wonders work best with dark hues like Kareena Kapoor’s black dress.
From desk to party: This outfit is as easy as it gets when you’re running for late night soirées, straight from work. Just throw on a crop top in exchange of your office blouse and you’re all set.
Go old school like Anushka Sharma with this fuss-free, sequin-heavy slip. There is a reason the all-black sequin numbers have stayed in style, come every party season: They only gets fresher every season.
You can also opt for a classic bandhej sari in black, not only will it set you apart from the crowd but also it’s super easy to move in (ensuring supreme comfort, throughout your evening).
Asymmetrical skirt + dramatic blouse + hair, bigger than any of the puffy sleeves you own = A winning combo right here.
