We love to wear black. We wear black when we want to stand out, when we want to blend in, when we want to feel sexy and when we want to feel fierce. We wear it for Thanksgiving dinner, or to class or on a Tuesday. We love black jeans, black boots, black nail polish, black blazers, and oh!—the little black dress. There is the perfect one for everyone and anyone, or anyone you choose to be for the day.
It’s like that episode of Mad Men where the ad campaign asked if women believed they were a Jackie or a Marilyn. Or maybe now we can ask, are we Karlie Kloss or Kim Kardashian? Claire Dunphy or Gloria Delgado-Pritchett? Or even the Wicked Witch of the West or Glinda? Will you choose prim and elegant or va-va-voom and vampy? Will you dress with a crisp white collar and patent leather flats or will you choose a plunging neckline and a spritz of No 5?
We don’t need to stop with our wardrobes either. A striking monogram on bed pillows and a rich black cashmere blanket versus a lush velvet covered headboard framed by glittering mini chandeliers. Bold, preppy stripes and buttery leather or plush faux fur and sparkling sequins. We can pick either one or anyone. And let’s not forget the days where we choose the crisp white collar and a spritz of No 5.
