There is often an unfair stigma attached to the colour black with blasé associations of death, depression and darkness, provoking some to say wearing all black should only be reserved for funerals and goths that mistake graveyards for youth clubs (N.B. these same people think that only boys can wear blue and girls pink). However, our fashion sub-editor Jessica Cole has 5 reasons to dispel the image of death and destruction associated with black with a round up of the top 5 reasons why black is likeeee the best thing ever.
1. It goes with everything, especially black.
2. Black has the magical quality of creating a skinny silhouette, which is great because no one will EVER know about that post-cider-bloat you’re harbouring, under all the lovely swathes of blackness.
3. It’s the perfect backdrop to actuate your ‘colourful’ personality.
4. Like over-processed meat, it can be shaped and moulded to fit any social situation, be it sexy, casual or dressy.
5. Stains never show up on black which means, no fear of visible baked bean splash backs from chowing down that Goldsmiths special.
