Jennifer Aniston has had a thing for black ensembles for quite some time now, and she's become a master at switching things up while staying in her comfort zone.

As the Mother's Day star stepped out in New York City Thursday, she rocked a simple, but chic, black tank dress, showing off her toned legs in Stuart Weitzman black Nudist stilettos. She strolled down a sidewalk sporting gold-framed aviator shades while she was at it, and clutched a small black bag that was draped over her shoulder.

While it's not often that Aniston is spotted out and about showing off her street style, the actress was all smiles as she took a walk in N.Y.C. Wednesday in a black tank top, white jeans, and tan Burberry espadrilles. She wore her hair straight and parted down the middle, sported a gold necklace, and toted a black bag from The Row.

Although it's a rare occasion to see Aniston in bright pops of color, we love that she wears what she feels comfortable in and that it always has her signature casual-chic edge to it.
