ALL BLACK EVERYTHING!
6 MENSWEAR ESSENTIALS IN YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR
How many black fashion and accessories do you own? It’s the colour Steve Jobs wore every day for work, the colour that will make you melt on a hot day, the colour which is seen as the better half of the monochrome trend, the go-to colour to match with just about anything, and the dress code colour for black tie events. It’s a colour that is always in style, which is why “the new black” is often quoted for new season trending colours. With this in mind we’ve picked out our favourite men’s fashion essentials of the season in this shade.
