Black is the New Black

Black is the new black. Black is the color that is always in style. Whether it is spring, summer, fall, or winter, the color black is always on trend. Black is classic. It is simple, chic, and stylish. The color black adds an air of sophistication and mystery. Black is unquestionable.

There are some elements of style that just seem better in black.

Little Black Dress. Karl Lagerfeld, of Chanel and Fendi fame coined the phrase, “One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress”…and it was Coco Chanel herself who created the everlasting concept of the LBD.
