Why Wear Black?

Why Wear Black?

As Veronica Forand, I wear black. Lots of it. At first, it was a practical. Like the Garanimals of our childhood, wearing all black means almost everything matches. There’s comfort in knowing I won’t be rummaging for hours looking for something that matches the cool green pants that languish in my closet without a coordinating top.

Black screams also screams attitude and lately, I’ve felt anything but confident. Clothes can affect how I see myself. I need to be strong right now for my family, for my clients, and for myself. Dressing to kick ass, helps me take on any challenge I’m confronted with.

Katherine, Duchess of Cambridge is known for her style and color. She’s not perceived to be aggressive or a take charge kind of person.kate-middleton-Pink

Her entire body language changes with a black casual outfit. kate-middleton-black

Tom Hiddleston. Just because.

In another color, she’s got a softer side.

There are days I’ll wear bright blue and white and that suits me fine, but when I need to engage some of my power, wearing anything black helps out.

  1. You may not always feel this way inside, but you always project that confidence and strength.

  2. Everyone in Stockholm wears black. It’s like someone sent out a memo that instructed all Stockholmers to buy black t-shirts, black winter coats, black shoes, black jeans… as if it weren’t already dark and dreary enough here during the autumn and winter. 😉 I must admit, though, that I wear a lot of black too. But sometimes I need a punch of color and lately I’ve been wearing a lot of red, peach, olive green…even pink (and I usually hate the color pink).
