Some get upset when the summer is over and school is back in session. But for those of us who live in and love the color black, we’re happy we can be indoors in the color of darkness, without burning up in the hot summer sun. If you’re a lover of all things black, we have a list of school supplies that will knock your black wool socks off.

Whether you love the color (or lack thereof) for its clean, classic look, or if you are more into the dark, mysterious hues because you yourself are dark and mysterious, we have items for each and all of you fans of black.

Without further ado, let’s get back to black.
