Believe it or not, frummies, there are other colors out there besides black. I know, I will give you a second to process this mind-blowing, earth-shattering discovery. Yes, it's crazy to think that maybe you can don some other articles of clothing that won't leave goths waiting for the back-orders to arrive.
P.S. Color is not pritzut!
I understand that black is slimming on everyone and that it is much easier to wake up in the morning and put on a black shirt and black skirt and call it a day. But ladies, break free. God created the WHOLE rainbow, not just the black clouds that precede it, so don't be afraid to use it!
No doubt you should have a few black staples: a black pencil skirt, a black sweater, a black blazer, and a black cardigan. Past that, try expanding your horizons! Take risks without actually having to take risks; in other words...just wear red! Even if it's red scarf, or a yellow cardigan, or a blue skirt--ahh, I can see your eyes lighting up through the computer screen. You want to go buy a yellow cardigan right now, don't you? I know, my powers of persuasion are unparalleled!
If you want to make it simple, you can even buy a solid color dress in a subtle color like this one from Banana Republic, and it's 100% tzniut (it even comes in turquoise!):
Color should be embraced, not shunned. You might find that different colors do wonders for your complexion, but that's a whole blog unto itself. Color has even been proven to make you smile more, and lord knows, we could use more smiling people in this world. Besides, wouldn't it be nice to walk into the office every morning and see a brightly dressed, composed and chic employee as opposed to another girl in...black. That includes variations of black, like charcoal and dark gray. Just saying.
Surprise yourself, ladies. Take the plunge and incorporate some technicolor into that monotonous wardrobe of yours...there just might be a pot of gold on the other side of that rainbow.
