Fashion Simplified: Black

“It isn't a matter of black is beautiful as much as it is white is not all that's beautiful” ~ Bill Cosby

Why fashion-industry types always choose to wear black? Is it because it’s slimming, it’s attractive and it’s a lot easier to wear than most of the clothes? What about when it comes to accessories? Is black still the best option most of the time?


A quick glance at my shoe rack made me realize that 80 percent of my shoes are black. I opened my closet and it revealed a diverse set of bags in different colors. But the bags that I usually carry to work or to professional gatherings are black. Should I say that black is the queen color of fashion?


And then I dream of adding another black to my shoe rack and another black to my bag collection. But mind you, that is just a dream. Black Peep-Toe Plateau Pumps by Fendi is a dazzling and luxurious black in leather. It would defeat the best black boots that I have. I would gladly change my Romance from Paris bluish black large bag that I always carry to work to give it a rest after four years of service by this Black All over Studded Bag. But I honestly doubt I would ever make this dream come true. You girls check their prices to know why.

But some more colorful and more daring shoes have become so trendy actually that they are the new black.

Therefore "the new black" refers to something so widespread that it rivals the popularity of the colour black.



  1. My favorite color shoes are actually cognac-colored. It's such a rich, elegant hue. Though I've just picked up a pair of multi-color tribal print wedges from Target and I am in love!! :)

  2. my wardrobe is probably 60 or 70% black... it's just an essential colour, and it always looks good!

  3. those booties are compeltely awesome!!

  4. I agree with your post!!!! Amazingly every colors happens to be the new black....it depends on how you mix and match items...without looking like a walking christmas tree..

    nice post dear!!!


  5. I love black.The colors are nice,when somebody else is wearing them;)

  6. i just love the bag!!
    xo tobes

  7. Your post made me look into my own wardrobe and I relaize that I have only 5 black items and non of them are shoes!:-))) I personally happen to think that black is far from simple.:-) In fact, to me, it is one of the most complicated, deep, very expressive colors there are. My photographer would also probably add that black is one of the hardest colors to photograph.:-)))

  8. I think black is very bold, because paired with certain colours and even paired with white it creates quite a contrast. I definitely think the Little Black Dress is essential to own! :)


  9. Shoes are amazing. I go for black in everything. Just simple n chic!

  10. Yeah, is true that people love more the black colour, it's simply elegant.

  11. i literally live in black...i always feel most comfortable in black..whenever i have any color on i dont feel like myself


  12. love those peep toe booties:)

  13. Black is a hard color to top. It goes with so much. But I do love my electric blue suede pumps a LOT!

  14. You can never ever have enough black anything!
