The colours we choose to surround ourselves create different moods within us (inspire, energise, or calm) in different places more than we think. As humans, we associate colours with so many different things and they have meanings beyond simple visual stimulation. Some researchers even suggest that we feel colours more than we see them.

Why not steal the same concept to your clothes? Here’s a rundown of the most desirable colour, Black; and what they signify, how you can use Black to your advantage in your outfits.

1. What’s so Special about Black

Black tends to be most people’s default outfit colour, which is understandable — it goes with almost anything. Black as a clothing colour can be elegant, formal, and visually slimming. Black absorbs all aspects of light so best advised in cold weather. However, Black can also have negative connotations, often represents the emotions and actions of rebellion in teenagers and youth.

It is linked to the unknown or the unseen.

In a positive note, black is seen as a restful emptiness into which anything may emerge and disappear once again. Black complements all of the other colours to have depth and for a glimmer of glamour.
