Forget about orange — black will always be the new, well, black. Donning the color from head to toe is perhaps the easiest way to look chic in a flash, but let’s be honest, it does have a tendency to feel a bit grim.

Of course, there are ways to do monochrome without looking as if you’re headed for a funeral, especially if your all-black look is easy and relaxed. Case in point: Eva Longoria, who pumped up slouchy trousers and a basic tee with sexy snakeskin heels. (Bonus points for opting for a sassy shade of pink!)
