Simply let’s talk about the reasons why I love to wear black. I do not always like black that much. I think this is because of the superstitious and the meaning of wearing black is sad and mourning colour according to my culture. Ok, we just going to start with the reasons. In this case, it will be all 10 reasons why I love to wear black.

1. I get bored very fast

One thing I know well about myself is that I get bored very quickly. No different when it comes to clothes, prints and colour. Imagine this; I just can’t wear white shirts two days in a row. I am doing to get insane. After years, I know that only black colour does not bore me. I am not sure why. Moreover, we are not going to discuss this now.

2. The whole attitude

Black often can be translated as “Hey, I am here. I know you notice me. Feel free to say hello but do not push your opinion down my brain.”

3. Black is just simply easy

I am not trying to say that I wear black because it is easy. Believe me; it is not. It is easy to be interesting by wearing ten colours and five different prints altogether. You know what I mean, just like a unicorn just vomits rainbow and glitters on your clothes. Your clothes stand out for you but wearing black; you have to stand out for yourself because you only wear black clothes. However, black is just simply easy to match with anything and everything.

4. Black is never out of fashion

Timeless and it last forever. Yes, forever! Even when you washed your black clothes 10.000 times, and it slightly turns greyish, it is still timeless. Timeless is also meaning that you are a supporter of a sustainable lifestyle. Get what I mean?

5. Not Obnoxious at all

I believe, and I know it is true. When someone is entering a room with floral bomb outfit, the room will be divided into three groups. The first group will be the one who excited about the colourful flower dress, the second group will be everyone that do not care about the dress at all, and the third will be a group that find you as attention seekers and obnoxious person.

What about when you are wearing top to toe all black outfit? There will be only one question, “Who is this person?” in a right way. Yes, this is happening during a fashion event

6. I have more time!

I will have more time than everyone else because I do not need to spend my time trying to mix and match colours or prints. Black goes with black or any other.

7. I do not need to show off

Wearing black is a sign of humble spirit. I do not need to be the centre of everything. I only need to be me. Moreover, I dress not to be seen; I wear all black because I feel closer to myself.

8. This colour goes with everything

Yes. This colour goes with everything. Truly everything! If you think otherwise, show it to me. Also, I guess you are delusional.

9. It is flattering

Whatever your body image issues are, black will help you delete it instantly. The black colour is slimming; it makes you look clean, you will look more mature and black makes you look more important. And not forget, it will make you pop no matter what skin colour you have.

10. It will easily camouflage any stains.

I do not have to concern to make stains on my clothes when wearing black. I even can pour a bottle of red wine and stay black. Try that on you floral shirts or whatever else you wear.
