“Why do you always wear black?”, my nine-year-old nephew Nile asked.
That question made me ponder because honestly I haven’t really thought about it until he asked me. I narrowed down my reasons to just five and let me justify why.
- It’s very basic. Period.
- I’m too lazy to think about other colors.
- It makes me look smarter…and sexier.
- It will never go out of style…timeless…classic.
- It’s the perfect match to my other favorite color white.
For the year 2016 Pantone revealed that for the first time 2 shades will be the color of the year : Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times. – Pantone
Pantone truly feels the signs of the time. The world (rather the universe) we know now is raging with anger and chaos and it badly needs a lull moment of peace and order.
However, when I look at rose quartz and serenity all I can think of is the colorful scrub suit that medical staff wear.
So in the year 2016, I would still probably wear black…white and maybe gray and nude.
