How To Wear Black This Spring, According To 8 A-Listers
The overall mood of the autumn/winter 2023 collections was a return to practical clothes, pieces that are simple but beautifully executed. Instead of the rainbow brights designers leaned on while creating mood-boosting collections during the pandemic, this season celebrated the impact of an all-black outfit. At Versace, Gigi Hadid opened the show in a black skirt suit, and was followed onto the runway by a flock of models in different interpretations of the little black dress.
This catwalk trend is already filtering through in celebrity circles, as instead of the sugary pastels or saturated brights you might expect to see in spring, the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kendall Jenner and Alexa Chung have been wearing lots and lots of black in recent weeks. It’s part of an overall shift towards elegant, uncomplicated clothing, and no one does this better than Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at their luxury label The Row, a brand many stars are turning to for a spring black look.
Kendall Jenner recently wore a full look from The Row’s spring/summer 2023 collection while in Paris, down to the last accessory, while Jennifer Lawrence’s spring wardrobe is brimming with luxe staples from her friends’ brand. When wearing all black, seek out quality fabrications and immaculate fits, as there are no frills or embellishments to hide behind.

Irina Shayk makes a black hoodie look polished with the addition of a beautifully tailored overcoat and glossy Oxford brogues. The oversized handbag and sunglasses (both in black, of course) add a fashion edge.
The secret behind this elegant ensemble? It’s almost all by the queens of quiet luxury at The Row. The small details matter when it comes to an all-black look, see the oversized fit of Jennifer’s coat and the ankle strap of her heels.
Yet more evidence that when it comes to a black outfit, no one does it quite like The Row. In Paris earlier this spring Kendall Jenner looked like an Old Hollywood star in a full look by the American luxury brand. It’s the accessories that make this maxi dress what it is: a sheer black scarf wrapped over her hair and looped around her neck, pointed court shoes, and retro black sunglasses.
