Over the centuries, the adaptability of black attire has undergone an evolutionary trend that has culminated in its reinvention to epitomize sophistication. It not only became fashionable to wear black but as the black male suit (well, don’t they show up in mostly darker colours?) would attest, it became a staple for those in positions of influence, whether through power or wealth.
With everyone staking their claim on black, the fashion industry wasn’t left behind. Pageantry brought to the fore the splendour of black, and it all started with Vogue’s 1926 cover of the “little black dress.” Many decades later, Vogue Paris’ editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt put it succinctly by saying that “I’ll Stop Wearing Black When They Invent A Darker Colour,” in what can be described as another turning point for black in fashion.
Fast forward to Today and wearing black is not only considered attractive but it reveals an elegance that transcends both male and female. What sets black apart from other colours is its ability to absorb light. This allows it to
- Match any other colour
- Suit any fabric
- Be appropriate for all seasons
- Conceal stains
- Look good on every skin tone
- Be coupled with any accessories
All these give black a resilience that has ensured that it will never go out of style.
