True Colours
From the end of 1999 I was in mourning for my father for a year, and came out of two years mourning for my partner at Easter this year. So I'm a bit over black for a while, and have been dragging my winter clothes from 2001 out of the back of the cupboard.

It is interesting how colours & fashion styles do seem to cycle around things that are incompatible with each other (eg lots of 'ice-cream' pastels, then bright primaries, then very minimalist 'elegant', etc. combined with a shape variable involving loose/tight, long/short, etc.), with a changeover period usually involving black & white. Over several decades I've built up enough of a wardrobe to keep me going most of the time, and just wait for the cycle to swing past something that suits me to pounce on it.
