OK, so it must be admitted that – considering the city I live in – I don’t actually wear a great deal of black. I like my colours a lot, and black isn’t something that I find to be particularly flattering, especially in winter when I’m feeling pretty pale and drab at the best of time.
Black works magnificently in the right situation. It can be elegant and understated. It’s timeless and it can make a great base outfit to showcase an amazing accessory. But I suspect that most people wear it as a shield.
In Melbourne’s CBD there’s such a sea of black-clad business people that wearing an all-black outfit is the easiest way to be invisible in full sight.
I’ve always been pretty good at being invisible, but it’s not doing me any favours at the moment. Hence, the colour.
