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?
