It’s true that the autumn weather popularizes warm shades of orange, red, yellow, and gold. The good feelings brought on by this color combination are so contagious—and part of what makes fall so special. But behind the cheery warmth of the season, there’s a darker, more dramatic side. Throughout my travels (on the Internet, that is), I’ve been noticing a common trend in bridal and holiday fashions: black. And I’m not just talking your run-of-the-mill LBD. I’m talking full-on dramatic black velvet gowns, floaty tulle, black rose crowns, and cranberry-red ribbons. There were beautiful brides in flowing goth-inspired dresses, decorations absent of color but more beautiful than you could imagine. The moral of this short story? The holidays don’t have to be all silver and gold, red and green, or any other combination of cheery color. A dramatic wash of black is beautiful, elegant, and, because it’s not quite as common, totally eye-catching. So dazzle that Thanksgiving ensemble with black diamonds. Urge your customers to go all black at that holiday gala with the jewels to match. Compile an awe-inspiring holiday showcase rife with black rhodium, gemstones, and glittery, decorative accents. It’s a little unconventional, but if you’re tired of the same looks year in and year out, this is just the thing.
