    I Wear More Black Than Any Other Color...

    Not because I'm trying to be someone I'm not, but I wear black and a whole lot of other dark colors because I find them a lot more flattering. Plus, I don't like to stand out because of what I'm wearing. Blue and black are pretty much my two colors that I'm always wearing. But...

    Beautiful Black

    I LOVE wearing black clothes, shoes, belts and almost always have a black purse. I don't think of it as a depressing color or the 'mourning' symbolism of it.  I just really like the color. I like wearing it with different shades of gray or white. I like wearing gem-tones for...

    I Don't Even Realize

    I own a lot of black clothes, because black looks good on me. I have pale skin and black really makes it pretty. So because I own a lot of black I tend to wear a lot of black and I don't even realize it sometimes. But I look good in it. So, who cares?

    Some Say It's Wrong

    Ever since I was small (around 10), I wanted to wear black - but mom only allowed it after I was 15. It's my favorite color, and the only one I feel comfortable with. No, really. Tried wearing purple, or blue, or grey, for casual clothes - but it just makes me really really...

    I used to wear tons of black in the past

    because i felt that you could never ever go wrong with black HAHAHA. The only problem with full black is that you give off a gloomy aura which I dont like. :<

    I Look Cool

    I wear a lot of black for the reason that it makes me look cool. There's just something about it that looks pretty cool or at least better than anything else. I also think I look cool with my hood up. Not trying to sound cocky just an opinion.

    Black Skirts......Mmmm

    Just love black skirts or dresses, even one with white polka dots on them. Make me fill really sexy in them too. Worn with nude or colored tights is also a playful tactic too. I hate to say it, but when I go to a funeral dressed in a black dress and nylons, I get hot & it turns...

    Savvy

    By natural law I tend to compile a fairly decent amount of black clothing. It was more so evident when I was younger as I began to get into a more simple look of jeans and rock tees, which by standard means were usually black. I cannot explain it but I simply feel better in black...

    It is my envelope of night,

    I wear it to absorb a little of your heat and colour as you pass, so that I never forget you, and I wear it so that I don't have to explain myself to you in words, with blatant obviousness, so that you don't forget me. I feel at home in the shadows, when there are crowds, but in...

    Gothic Splendour

    It's so flattering, it suits my mood usually and i can add red or white to look more dramatic. I've more shoes, stockings, skirts and hats which are black than anything else. I used to be a Goth in my younger days.

    Why Not? It's Just Black!

    It doesn't mean much when I wear black. It's just that sometimes drug addicts wear a lot of black. I just feel the rebellious mood brewing inside me when I wear black. I just like being among the others who happen to like wearing a lot of black. It doesn't mean much to me.
