Why I Love Black

August 3, 2013
So I know that black isn't technically even considered a color, but whatever, I love it.  Even in the summer.  I noticed that in my current wardrobe, there is a whole lot of black from shoes to tops, to jackets, accessories, jeans, and dresses.  It's everywhere.  Why so much black?

**It goes with everything.  If I'm wearing black pants, I can pretty much wear any top in my whole closet.  If I'm wearing pants that are any other color (besides jeans), I have to make sure it matches which can sometimes be a bit challenging.

**It's easy to accessorize.  I have a lot of jewelry and purses that are pretty colorful, and if I wore them with a  patterned top, there would just be too much going on.  Plain black gives accessories a chance to shine!

** It doesn't go out of style. It just doesn't...I don't care what Abercrombie says!!  (They refuse to sell it.)  I have so many black pieces that I've worn over and over throughout the years, and I still love them just as much as when I first got them.  There's a reason the little black dress (and not the little any other color dress) has become a classic. 

** It's slimming.  I know I certainly wouldn't object to the illusion of looking a few pounds lighter.  


Here's a little collage of how I've worn black over the years.





What is your favorite black piece of clothing/accessory that you own?

  2. My favorite black thing to wear are my high-waisted shorts. I love them! I can go casual or dressy with them. I also have a black romper that I love and a plain black t-shirt that I like to wear with colored jeans. I love black!

  3. Half of my closet is black -easily. I think my favorite is a certain pair of black pants that go with dress shirts, casual shirts, sweaters and just are the most comfortable things ever! I also have 2 pairs of black 3 1/2" heels that are so versatile and classy I just love em'!

    1. I have a lot of shoes, but I wear the black ones the most frequently for sure! It seems like you are also getting a lot of wear out of your black shoes. :)

  4. That's funny, I had no idea Abercrombie refused to sell black. I love a good black and white stripe. And my favorite necklace from my shop is a black onyx fan necklace.
