In the latest dispatch from #ThisFrenchLife, Stylist France editor-at-large  Audrey Diwan describes why French women love to wear black. It's a deliberate choice, and one that's chic, genderless and immune to judgement, she argues.

From classic day-to-night dresses, to everyday black jeans and tailored jackets that go with anything, we've gone back to black with our latest style round-up. Ready to shop the chicest items on the high street? Click through the gallery right here.
