But - isn't it also a bit boring? There. I've said it. Black can be a bit too predictable and, if we are honest with ourselves, it can be harsh and unflattering once you reach a certain age. Maybe we should be looking for our new black instead of settling for the same old black.
|A better choice than black?|
In my recent wardrobe purge most of my black clothes went out, though I did keep a black pencil skirt and a pair of black trousers. My last purchases were a pair of navy trousers and a navy trench-coat, which fortunately are proving to be just as versatile as black. In future I will be sticking to navy or possibly dark brown for my basics, as I have established that they look far better on me and make me look more youthful, which can't be a bad thing.
For me, navy is now my new black. What about you? Have you managed to wean yourself off black and find a new colour for your basics? I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Of course, there are some lucky women who still look stunning in black even when they are over 60. Are you one of them?
