wearing the absence of color.

I believe I was put on this planet to inspire others to wear (and love) the color black, which technically is the absence of color, but that’s not the point.

Black can be worn from head to toe (like I do most days), black can be just part of your outfit (like mine every other day), and it can accent your outfit. But whatever it may be, black will simply make your outfit better. I mean, come on, it’s just a given.

Wearing black isn’t merely a “gothic” or “emo” thing; there’s so much more to it. Black is elegant, mysterious, chic, classy. Still don’t believe me? Think wearing black is boring because you might blend in? Well, perhaps Angela Tofoya will help me convince you that you can stand out wearing the absence of color. Check out her thoughts on her 5 Non-Boring Ways To Wear All Black.

Still worried you might look goth instead of chic? Even though this article has more summery outfits, it still makes a good point on the chicness of black. Shani Silver explains in her article How To Wear All Black And Look Chic, Not Goth.

Perhaps showing you some of my favorite celebrities wearing black will change your mind. And they seriously rock the (absence of the) color black; and you can too!

You don’t need a reason to wear black, there isn’t a certain event you can or cannot wear black to (even weddings, stay tuned for a future post about that), you can pair it with almost anything but simply stated: just wear black! I suggest wearing black everyday. You can always add a pop of color if you wish.

If not everyday, once a week will do. On Wednesdays. Oh come on, at least do it for Wednesday Addams.
