why a black suit is our mid-week must.

May frilly gowns and sequined frocks rest in peace. It's now time for black to dominate the red carpet, so don't worry about saving that special all-black ensemble for your dreary Monday (or Wednesday) mornings (we know, and we understand).

Instead, take a tip from Lykke Li and amplify your look to the next level. The Swedish singer opted for a sleek and streamlined vibe, pairing a black turtle neck against a matching blazer. Her secret weapon? A glossy leather clutch, an understated yet eye-catching accessory that perfectly delivers this jet-black outfit to perfection.
