Black, as powerful as elegant and sober.

Times passes by, fashion changes, but black remains. Why is this? Simple. Here I will mention some reasons why the color black hasn't and will never go out of fashion.

ELEGANT: Since black is sober and dark, it is perfect for night gatherings or any other occasion, really. A black dress never goes unnoticed; on the contrary, it makes the person wearing it stand out. Let's remind ourselves—everything related to luxury always comes with black.

EASY TO COMBINE: Black is neutral, it combines perfectly with any skin color, clothes, and patterns, without losing its glamour and elegance.

IMPROVES THE SILOUETHE: Black can make anyone appear slender. People with big curves look slimmer and more sophisticated in black.

SENSUALITY: A lot of people see black as an elegant and sensual color. According to a poll, 66% of women agreed black is an excellent choice for a first date.

IT TRANSMITS SECURITY: Black is a color that evokes intelligence and perseverance to take on new challenges.

Black was once seen as a representation of grief. As time passed and cultures changed, people added new meanings such as sadness and malignance. Today, black portrays elegance and sobriety.

It's a versatile color that offers a wide array of possibilities when dressing up or dressing down.

"One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress," said once famous German designer, Karl Lagerfeld.

In conclusion, black has always set a trend; it's a basic color that is a must have inside everyone's closet. Black clothing can get you out of a fashion emergency for a formal event or an impromptu night out.
