Grace Bernal’s California Style: Black Is Back

Style 11 02This week we’ve had our share of witches and then some. So the color of the moment is black. It’s an absolutely stunning color! Halloween time can be very wild, as fall advances and October makes its way into progressively cooler and chillier November. But it’s not all about black witches. There’s a lot of dressing going on and so many fun parties. It’s the beginning of the holiday season and black is a sophisticated color to begin it with. There is an argument to be made that black is the best color in the history of time, thanks to Coco Chanel and the her Little Black Dress Craze. Black can bring with it that eternal moment of sadness as an expression of mourning, but black is to this day nonetheless a color for everyone. From the 19th Century on, many wore black to funerals but it has come a long way and remained a simple uniform of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Black has lived through the fashion revolution of the changing times. We have colors coming in this season, but we can’t leave black because it has been and remains the best color there is  to accentuate the human body. Black represents a lifestyle and everyone loves it. So this year don’t forget to use your black because there is nothing dark about it.

“The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.” –Coco Chanel
