Recently I’ve been asked why I wear black so often and if it reflects my personality and life views. People still think that black is the color of negative thoughts and dark intentions. Honestly, I can’t understand that, from many reasons.
I’ve prepared some general facts about “black”, which show us the opposite: 
 
1. Though in Christianity black was first mentioned as the color of darkness and devil, in the medieval era, it became the color of royal luxury.
2. In the Chinese culture black represents the water, therefore it’s considered  neutral and calm. It is also believed to be the color of Heaven.
3. Black is the color of power and authority. In many countries it is worn by judges, magistrates, politicians, business people etc.
4. Black is an international graphic color, used for books, magazines, newspapers, etc.
 
 But here are some of my personal thoughts on this color:
 
+ it slims the body
+ it is a lot more practical (rain, mud, etc)
+ looks elegant and luxurious 
+ can be mixed with every other color in the world
+ it is very sensual 
+ it is my school dress-code, so that might have developed my love for this color
+ minimalistic and mysterious 
…..
 
So even if this color has been a debatable topic for a long time, you can see that I am a devoted fan of it. Do you like the color as much as I do, guys?

I was wearing:
coat and snake blouse thanks to PNK Casual 
jeans from Mango
sweater thanks to Romwe
Cartier watch+ thai bracelet
MaxMara boots
 

 

Love,

  • this is one of my favorite outfits by you, recently one of my readers asked me the same thing- I also think the fact that it’s winter makes black more common in my outfits!xo CamillaInto The Fold

  • Love it. Actually black is one of my favorite colors, I have a lot of black stuff so when I buy some new clothes in black my mom is like: Black? again?But I just love it and I think it fits everyone. Even though I love it I think it’s a problem for me too cause usually I don’t wear too much colors, this year I’m trying to wear it more.By the way, I love the sweater…and the coat, and the boots 🙂

    imi place ca ai folosit un mix de texturi si imprimeuri. de multe ori tinutele monocrome tind sa fie cam fade, insa tu ai evitat asta intr-un mod foarte inspirat. bravo!

  • I love black! I’ve made it my signature style. Curiously people still think it’s blah, boring and “safe”. True, it can be just that, but it can also elevate you, be dramatic and fierce in a way that doesn’t translate as trying-desperately-to-get-your-attention.

  • I like black but I won’t wear it often or if I do I’d add a pop of colour; I guess because to me all black is a little too boring? But everyone has their own taste!ravenmaidenmaven.blogspot.com
