The color black is powerful, alluring and mysterious. Wearing black makes one feel, and appear, assertive, mysterious and bold. It can also set one apart and make one seem unapproachable, unfriendly, self-absorbed. The color black is slimming, looks good with just about anything, except other dark colors and makes lighter colors appear brighter. Black can make you look either serious and conventional or sexy and mysterious.

Black is the absence of light, the absence of color. It absorbs negativity like a black hole absorbs everything within its reach.
