Why Orange Will Never Be The New Black
Whoever said “Orange is the New Black,” clearly doesn’t appreciate how amazing the colour black is! Black is timeless and classic and will never go out of style. The love affair with the colour black has even been proven thanks to a study that surveyed 1000 people and found black as the colour most associated with intelligence, confidence, and sexiness. Let’s take a further look at what makes black such an interesting colour for both men and women alike.
Black has always been known as the most slimming colour, and for a good reason! It literally disguises the shadows created by our natural curves and bumps and makes them appear smoother. Additionally, wearing black looks amazing on every body shape. It can make you look more mature or younger depending on the style and it can be downright sexy!
There’s a reason the vast majority of ladies own a “little black dress.” From date night, office wear and black tie events, black will always be an acceptable and classy colour choice. You can always dress it up for a special occasion or dress it down for a fun, casual look. Also, black has no season! Winter, spring, summer or fall, black is the colour for them all.
It’s a Perfect Match
If you suffer from colour blindness or admittedly have no fashion sense, then black is the colour for you! It matches every other colour and allows you to explore your fashion curiosity with textures and accessories. Ironically, however, as any lover of black would know, there are different colours of black ( grey-black, faded black, charcoal, jet black, etc.), so beware!
It’s a Great Disguise
Black hides stains, dirt and sweat better than any other colour! We all have our off days, clumsy days and such, so in the event of an important job interview or dream date, take our advice- wear black! This way if you spill something or someone drops something on you, no need to worry. Wearing black can save the day.
It’s A Statement Colour
Despite the bad rap black may receive, it is a statement colour, (or non-colour?) which can represent so many positive characteristics. Power, confidence and professionalism are just a few that immediately come to mind, while mystery, fashion-forward and attractiveness are also associated with the colour. And for some people black is also a way of expressing oneself as a rebel, which can also be an excellent quality.
