SHOPPING IN BLACK – BLACK BOOTS FOR PURE ELEGANCE
Sleeveless Dress in Black
The same black sleeveless dress matched with a classic black leather belt where the gold-toned buckle takes the centre stage. I wear it with black structured leather boots and altogether with a leather bag the design of which features a top-handle for easy carrying and a golden metal closure.
A short walk through the European history of the colour black reveals that the colour was worn by royalty, clergy, judges and government officials – in the 14th century. In the 19th century however, it became the colour of English romantic poets, businessmen and statesmen representing. It is only in the 20th century when black lost its aura of solemnity and authority and has become a high fashion colour. And I very much agree with Christian Dior who said that you might wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. And you may wear it at almost any occasion!
