Black – Beautiful or insecure?

Colour is a wonderful thing and whether or not we are aware of it, our entire existence is governed by the colours around us. Colour can affect our mood and the colours we choose to wear can define our personalities. But one colour that is classy, gorgeous and safe, all at the same time is black. I love black. A little black dress always features in the list of must-haves for your wardrobe.

Black looks elegant and formal. Black can be slimming, but head to toe black absorbs light and drains your complexion. It implies you are independent but also says that you are a bit of a loner.

It looks modish but can also suggest an underlying insecurity and self-doubt. Opting for black everyday can mean you want to blend into the background.

On the other hand, for evenings out, the little black dress- whether classic, slinky or bang up to date – is still a hard –to- beat wardrobe staple. So I would say wear black, but just don’t wear it all the time, as ‘staple’ is not ‘sexy’. It is time to show your true colours.
