The Color Black

The color Black is the color of authority and power. It is a favorite in fashion, of course, because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. “The Little Black Dress” is a classic in and of itself. However, Black, as with most colors, can have both positive and negative connotations.

Positive: Classic, formal, powerful, mysterious, sexy.

Negative: Mournful, unimaginative, rebellious.


• Black has a life of its own. Though it can be slimming, it can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof. Make sure it’s the right situation for a black outfit.

• Black is a power color for all Winters, especially the Deep Winter.  If you are not one of these seasons, then it’s best to wear black away from the face. If you must wear a black top and it’s not one of your power colors, try to wear a scarf in one of your best colors. A seasonal colored blouse will help offset a black jacket.

• Always make sure your makeup is in your seasonal colors, regardless of whether you are wearing clothes in your power colors or not.
