There's a lot to love about wearing black: it's timeless, easy-to-wear, and best of all, it goes with everything you already own. Basically, they're foolproof to mix and match! So if you want to dress up quicker or avoid not knowing what to wear for special occasions, fill up your wardrobes with these versatile black staples below: 


1. Black pants

A sleek and comfy staple, black jeans are a dressier alternative to your light wash denim. Pair it with a white button-down shirt for a smart-casual attire you can wear to an out-of-the-office meeting or a sleeveless blouse for your next BFF dinner date! 


TRY: Uniqlo Women High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans, P1,990, available online

2. Black button-down shirt 

Update your classic white-button down with an elegant black version. While it's clearly perfect for work, this tailored staple looks even more amazing when dressed down with a pair of denim jeans or shorts. 

TRY: Mosaic PH Ayva Top, P1,900, available in all Mosaic stores 

3. Little black dress—or jumpsuit!

Whether you need a last-minute sleek attire for an evening affair or you're simply in a rush to dress up for work, owning many black one-piece items like an LBD or a jumpsuit will always come in handy. 


When traveling, dress it down with casual staples like a pair of white sneakers and a denim jacket:

TRY: Mosaic PH Jackie Jumpsuit, price available upon request, available online

TRY: Zouk PH Jean Dress, P950, available online

4. Black camisole 

You can't go wrong with hoarding this staple. Black tank tops are always useful in taming down colored or printed pants, blazers—or even when you simply want to think less about what top goes with what. It acts as the perfect neutral base!  


TRY: Candid Clothing Reversible Cami, P450, available online

5. Black turtleneck

When they come in thin, stretchable fabrics, turtlenecks are a sophisticated layering piece. They work well under blazers, trench coats, and even when worn alone, neatly tucked into jeans. 


TRY: Uniqlo Heattech Turtleneck T-shirt, P790, available in all Uniqlo stores
