One of my foolproof color combinations to wear during the cooler seasons is black. I don’t think there’s anything more chic and put together. Not only that but black is an incredibly versatile color. It can always be mixed and matched no matter how you style it. If you feel that wearing a dark monochromatic outfit comes off too serious, edgy, or boring for your aesthetic, I wanted to share some of my favorite all black outfits for fall that are feminine and polished. With just a few styling tricks, anyone can create a head-to-toe black outfit that’s full of interest.
Bodysuit, Leather Pants & Camel Coat
For a casual weekend look, I love pairing a black bodysuit with faux leather pants and combat boots. This uniform can definitely come off intense, but you can temper it with a camel coat or cardigan. Casual accessories like a printed handbag and baseball cap also help tone down the edginess.

Graphic Tee, Vinyl Leggings & Plaid Blazer
Plaid blazers are a fall must-have and I love using them to break up an all black outfit. You can create even more interest by throwing it over a pair of patent leather leggings. The high-shine look is super forward but I love it!
Sweater Dress & Animal Printed Boots
Wearing an all black outfit can be classy too. All you need is a sweater dress and some animal printed boots. I’m all about snakeskin and croc-embossed textures this season. When worn with a black sweater dress, your entire outfit will look so expensive.

Black Basics With Gold-Hardware Accessories
You can never go wrong with the basics, like a blazer, distressed jeans, and a basic tee. To bring in that luxe factor, be sure to style your look with accessories that contain gold hardware. Whether you go for gold buttons, a logo belt, or a chain strap bag, there’s something about gold on black that looks so luxurious.
Pencil Skirt, Cutout Sweater & Pumps
All black outfits are especially great for the office because they instantly scream business. This fall and winter season, pair a pencil skirt with a cutout sweater. A pair of high-heeled pumps will put on the final touches.
Black Jeans, Off-The-Shoulder Sweater & White Pumps
One of the easiest ways to brighten up a black outfit is with a pair of white pumps. I love the contrast it brings to darker colors – and how it makes an outfit feel more feminine too.

Sweater Dress, Belted Blazer & Textured Tights
Little black dresses are truly one of the most classic pieces you can own. When it gets too cold for short hemlines, add a pair of textured tights. I find that they bring in some visual interest while keeping things chic.
Puffer Jacket, Leather Leggings & Combat Boots
Wearing head-to-toe black can also make for a cute, cozy fall look. I’ve been loving the cropped puffer jacket trend, especially when you throw in playful accessories like a pompom beanie or knit scarf.

Turtleneck Top, Faux Leather Pants & Leopard Printed Coat
It’s no secret by now that certain textures, colors, and prints will elevate an all black outfit. For instance, a statement-making faux fur leopard coat. This combo is ideal for a girl’s night out – or even a casual holiday party.
