Pippa's pops of blue brighten an
otherwise humdrum black outfit
Black is the most classic and worn color and the title of local band, Pearl Jam's 1991 tune. We West Seattlelites spend a good amount of time discussing where Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder lives, how we saw him at the grocery store, etc. But finding Eddie Vedder in a sea of people dressed in black, well that's easier said than done.

So what's wrong with wearing black? Well, nothing, sort of. Many of us have a multitude of black garments occupying our closets. And, let's face it, black is pretty darn easy to put together and doesn't require a lot of thought. If you are someone who has LOTS of black clothing, however, it is time to make some changes. A great way to make your black, well, less black is to have brightly patterned scarves to throw on so the black isn't always dragging that lovely face of yours down. A colored jacket or cardigan, necklaces, bracelets,  and earrings, also help with breaking up the color of night.

So next time you grab your favorite black top remember to add a little personality and color to your basic canvas. You'll be surprised how it puts a little sunshine in these winter days and a spring in your step. While Eddie Vedder would look good in a burlap sack, we mere mortals have to be a bit more discerning!

Brighten your day with colorful accessories to take the edge off black and you'll Love What You Wear!
