SAY YES TO BLACK... WITH COLORFUL SCARVES!

Did you know that black is not considered as a color (a reason why it is barely featured on color wheels)?

Where is black????????

 

Well, black might not be an official color but obviously it still has some beautiful days ahead. Take a quick look at photos of the 2015 Grammy Awards Ceremony: other than the traditional carpet - bright red of course - black was all around! 

Why? Simply because...

  • Whether as a gown, a LBD or a coat, black is always powerful and bold.
  • It flatters the silhouette and makes women look slimmer.
  • It fits brunettes and blondes .
  • It accentuates the charming mystery of those who wear it.
  • Last, but not least, it works with any other shade.

To jazz up your favorite black outfit and to avoid a total monochrome look, there is no better way to throw in a dash of vivid color. Bright accessories such as a colorful a silk scarf will be enough to make a statement. Demonstration:
