Gray & I have always been friends, but black & I have gone up & down--what about you?
My junior year of high school I hung out with a slightly punk, slightly crazy crowd & wore all black (to the disdain of my parents).
In college, I wore a lot of black sweaters & jeans until I couldn't stand that look anymore.
In the early 2000s, I decided to lighten up & turned completely away from black. I started wearing off-white jeans with colored blouses.
I decided my friends would rather see me in something brighter, & I decided black was too severe.
But now I'm back in black! Few outfits make me feel more powerful than all black. I wear all black about once a week, & now I buy black again too. Suddenly I think it's elegant & classic & classy again. I don't feel dark or severe in it anymore; I feel New York & edgy & put together.
Have you gone through anything similar in your history with the color black? Please tell!
Here are a few of my black-based outfits:
