Always Wear Black

“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.

  1. It’s very basic. Period.
  2. I’m too lazy to think about other colors.
  3. It makes me look smarter…and sexier.
  4. It will never go out of style…timeless…classic.
  5. 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

Always Wear Black

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.
