Whilst I enjoy wearing colour very much, I also wear black regularly, especially on Mondays when my mood is the most foul (thank you Monday blues!) 😛 And while it’s a neutral staple in every woman’s wardrobe, black needn’t be boring, not when there’re so many designs available!
The body positive community doesn’t want clothes that slim them down anymore, so aside from the fact that black is a slimming colour, how about it being a hue that makes it easy to mix and match? Adding bright shoes breaks up the monotony.
Black is sombre enough for the office and formal enough for cocktails. From maxi to tube to halter dresses, there’s a black dress for every occasion. No wonder the LBD is so popular and every fashionista’s must have. You can’t go wrong when you wear black!
Let’s not forget prints : ) Stripes, florals, checks, the monochrome look is smart and stylish too! So those fat activists shunning black as an act of rebellion are really missing out on 1 of the easiest colours to wear. It’s their choice, of course, but boy are they limiting themselves!
So to those ladies who still wear black, go ahead and wear those dresses! They’re fantastic if you’re rushing for time and don’t know what to wear to the office. They’re always my choice when I’m running late 😛
Wishing you fun,
