If you buy into that kind of thing, you know that every season has ‘a color.’ Sometimes its turquoise, sometimes its chartreuse, sometimes it’s canary…frankly, keeping up with it is exhausting and if you’re the sort of person who likes to buy tons of items in that ‘color of the season,’ that’s great. I just prefer to stick to the things that will endure.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I wear black exclusively. Sometimes I get really crazy and throw on something in a shade of gray. But really,when I look for pieces to buy, I seek out the ones that will remain relevant for a long time, maybe even forever. When I want those statement pieces and decide to deviate from my ‘all black urrythang’ mentality, the ones I am drawn to often blend the two most classic colors: Black and white. As far as I’m concerned, black and white is the new black. These pieces only strengthen my case, IMHO.
