The Darker Side of Free People

It took me a while to fall in love with Free People. Initially, after seeing a few macrame tops and floral jumpsuits, I assumed it was a fashion line devoted to clothing the Coachella-bound. However, their black dresses can be downright witchy, in the most lovely ways.

If your local stockist is anything like mine, you’ll find the selection of black items in-store to be pretty lacking. A recent visit to their San Diego store turned up only one or two black items, with most of the inventory consisting of white and earth tones. But the clothing line’s website is full of delightfully dark items. Prices can range anywhere from $50 up to nearly $900, but keeping your eye on the sale section will pay off.
