Littlebirdblue mentioned the "Goth" look yesterday, which got me to thinking (which isn't always such a dangerous thing). I like black, perhaps a little too much. I took stock of my wardrobe over the weekend since it was time to toss out some articles I haven't worn in ages and knew I'd never wear again. I needed the hangers. What struck me is how much black I have. My winter clothes tend to range from black and gray to various hues of brown. Some of them are interspersed with color by way of plaids, prints, and trims, and I do have several multi-hued plaid items. For summer wear, I love pastels and I have them in every shade of the rainbow. My winter wardrobe is overwhelmingly black, though.
I’m wearing black today – black skirt, tights, and shoes, but the look is softened by a beaded white sweater. I love beads and bangles; must be the Gypsy or princess in me. I do try to avoid unrelieved black. If I’m wearing black pants or skirt, I’ll generally wear a light colored top.
I like skirts, in black or any other color. I tend to wear pants more in the winter, though, simply because they’re so easy. If I’m wearing a skirt, that means a slip if it’s unlined and … the dreaded pantyhose or tights. It takes much less time to just zip up a pair of pants and go.
I must have half a dozen pairs of black pants, and that’s not including jeans and Capris. Pants come in so many styles and, of course, the style one prefers on a given day may depend on one’s mood. There are pleated fronts and flat fronts, straight-leg, wide-leg, skinny-leg, cuffed, Capri pants, etc., etc. I loathe wide-leg pants and don’t own any. If I’m feeling bloated on a particular day, I’m probably not going to choose the tapered skinny-leg pants. Those are my favorites, though.
Anyway… I wear a lot of black because I like black. If I ever start wearing white makeup and black lipstick, somebody please do something about me because I am way too old to even think about going Goth.
