Grace Bernal’s California Style: Black

Style 10 27The Halloween madness begins over the weekend and is set to extend into the next week-and-a-half. The favorite color of the moment is standing out everywhere and its all-black. Let’s not forget, with the color come all the fashionable street witches. I’m going way back to the 1920s era, when Coco Chanel herself brought black back from the grave. From then on, no longer would the color be associated with death, but more with chic sophistication. It was the little black dress which started the celebration of a new black beginning. Black has always been the main pallet choice, the favorite color, for many people because it’s easy and you don’t get it as dirty, meaning it requires less diligence when it comes to washing. It’s also said to make a slimming effect on the fashionista. This weekend, why not reenact the little black dress with a witch’s hat and pointy black pumps? You can probably get this witchy outfit straight out of your closet. Since the costume scene is underway, start thinking of ways to get dressed in a variety of black, anything from a veil to funky skirts. Make it worth the stare, if even for a moment. Have fun snapping your photos or Facebooking live for Halloween.

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel
