When it comes to fashion, nothing says style like black.

Aside from its clean simplicity, it also happens to be extremely flattering on any skin tone and minimizes the visual appearance of one’s silhouette (aka: it makes you look skinnier).

Open my closet and it looks like I attend a funeral at least 3 times a week, but that is because when it comes to black, I am a straight up addict. It’s my go-to colour and when building any wardrobe, having the black essentials is key.

So, here are my five must-have black staples for every girl:

1. The Little Black Bag

No matter what the occasion, a black purse is a great way to go. It can dress up an outfit or just be that inconspicuous added touch to your finished look.

2. The Little Black Blazer

The black blazer is my personal favourite. Throw it on with jeans to polish a casual get-up or style it with a pair of pants for a job interview. I usually wear a black blazer when I travel, so that my slouchy outfit looks a little less grungy after an overnight flight.

3. The little Black Boot

I’d like to think of myself as a black boot collector…okay, maybe hoarder?! These little gems are the best footwear, again, for any occasion. Find a comfy pair and you are golden.

4. The Little Black Pant

Black pants are infinitely flattering and with so many silhouettes in style these days (skinny, flare, cropped, baggy), there truly is the perfect pair for every frame.

5. The Little Black Dress

There is a reason why at every event you go to you inevitably are in a sea of black dresses. What is that reason? Well, black hides our imperfections, making it the most ideal way to look your best. That and it screams chic!

With these 5 basic building blocks added to your wardrobe, you will always have a stylish outfit at your fingertips.

Sorry orange, but black is the new black.
