You know the song right? “All Black Everything.” Even if you don’t, it has become the fashion motto for anytime anyone rocks an all black ensemble. Although we often think of black as chic, classy and timeless we can’t forget it origins in goth, punk and the hardcore scene. This is why black is so versatile, it transcends culture and time.The benefits of black are endless and I’m here to give you 5 reasons why black is the color of the century. With black you are always prepared for anything, on top of your game and ready for any event and occasion. If you aren’t already, I am going to make you a black-liever!
1) Black to Black
Textures, textures, textures! With black you can mix and match all different kinds of crazy fabrics and textures, even layers. You can be adventurous without it looking like you are taking an over-the-top fashion risk. When you do this with colors it can be a total fashion travesty, like that one time Kim let North West finger paint her Hermès bag.
2) Laid Black
Stand out or blend in. Black makes a statement, even if “not making a statement” is the statement you’re going for. You can really make an entrance and get noticed in the perfectly chic head-to-toe ensemble. Or, you can blend right into a crowd seamlessly. It works for the showstopper and the everyday casual chick. Black means you are trying to look good without having to try so hard.
3) Baby Got Black
It is so figure-flattering and hides anything you are not in the mood to show. It’s a real confidence booster and the perfect way to draw the focus away from any problem areas. It’s easy to throw on all black and not have to think too much about how you look in it. It can be a real time saver and is always a good staple no matter how you are feeling. Black to the rescue!
4) Black to the Future
Black will NEVER go out of style. You won’t look back at a photo of yourself and say, “What the fuck was I wearing.” It’s absolutely timeless and classic. It’s not a trend or a fad and you won’t find yourself throwing out your black wardrobe because “it’s so last year.” Black also works for every season. It can be re-vamped, re-invented and re-styled with almost anything and will always seem fresh and innovative. Black is forever.
5) The Black Up Plan
It literally looks good on everyone. Any shape, size, skin tone, height, hair color, etc. You really can’t go wrong. No matter who you are or what you look like black is always a good choice. This is the ultimate benefit, black is the perfect first choice or fall back option for absolutely anyone.
