Black makes most people think of long evening gowns, of revealing necklines, of silk and satin – in other words, of elegance and sensuality.
Because black is the most important of all colours, it deserves some extra attention. Black is becoming to every complexion and suits every figure. It can be worn during all seasons and looks attractive in all types of fabrics. It is elegant, authoritative, sexy, and sad, In the late nineteenth century domestic servants, shopgirls, clerks, and elderly people of modest means were only considered properly dressed when in black.
It can be worn equally well by men and women. And black is worn by rich and poor, by clergy and by a call girl. It can indicate positions of social standing high and low. It is both serious and worldly. It is the colour that is universally the most appropriate for most occasions. Most important, it never really goes out of fashion. Around 1930 Gabrielle Chanel Brought out the famous ‘little black dress,’ which since then has never left us. The next time: CO-ORDINATION OF COLOURS
