Back IN Black —
Some might credit the economy. Others immediately say true style always swims in this darkest of hues. But we know the real reason. Black rules as every fashionista’s favorite color because—be it shiny or matte, slinky or FAT—black is the choice color of that ultimate accessory known as sunwear. Need another trend? Stick your ever-so-sleek hair behind the temple piece for sort of a goth-your-groove look.
