Updated on August 22, 2017

The Colorless Black

The color black has many well-written articles on the effect, definition, and overall meaning. Is this color colorless? The dictionary says, colorless is the state of dullness, lacking, or uninteresting. Black represents mystery and protection. Those in the younger years of life that wear this color is often considered to be goth. This dark pigment is the darkest color of any color group.

In general, it represents aggression, authority, death, elegance, evil, fear, formality, mystery, power, rebellion, seriousness, sophistication, and strength. Affecting body and mind differently in individuals' life. Most that wear black is often looking for protection from the negativity surrounding their everyday life. Business formal parties host black and white parties sometimes all black parties for an elegant appearance.

The absence of the color black leaves both a positive and negative effect on individuals. Giving those in an abusive situation a way to display what they are going through without speaking about the events. Thinking of a deepening sadness, emptiness sensation, gloom, or mourning of a loved one. Appearing in books and movies portraying the villain, now it too represents the hero. Some choose to move away from the color and turn to brighter colors giving hope.


Considering the lighter the shade the more feminine it is considered, males can wear a light shade of gray, still giving it the masculine texture. Unfolding moods is more accurate than to lack life. Gray does not bring as much life to the room like pink or white does, its color tint still brings a form of life.

Another neutral color, gray is literally the color without color. It is black and white. Its dullness shows no life and lack of emotions. For fashionable items to state sophistication and sleekness, a hint of gray will a lifeless edge.

There are more than fifty shades of gray in the color scheme. The unsettling feeling that is given when seeing gray is neither good nor bad. Colors like ash, charcoal, dark gray, light gray, and platinum carry a bland mass of black and white mixtures.

Misconception: Blue

Misrepresentation includes too much or too little. It is truly how the mind calculates the color. Wearing an all blue outfit might say that there is a confident, uncaring, or intelligence to the model, while too little indicates suspicion, stubbornness, and timidity. Taking the shade into account the message that is conveyed is saying more than one may think if the shade is abundant or tiny.

Plain blue is normal, Aquamarine is the ocean, Baby blue is the sky. There is nothing negative about these shades of color. Fashion embraces it with denim, as we all know anything denim is blue. Modern times placed a spin on the denim style by bleaching. Still wearing a pair of denim jeans and jacket is no different from wearing a blue wig. Times are constantly changing, yet some are still feeling that a full head of hair dyed blue states depression. A full head of hair dyed blue can state much more than a deepening sadness. The blues, not the music genre, the purpose is to cool the environment by balancing with self-expression.

The blue family group has about twenty-six different shades that produce a tranquility environment. Calming the mind and soul, reminding the mind of how it feels when seeing the ocean or the sky. On the most stressful days, going to the beach or laying in the grass looking up at the sky the mind is at ease.

Money Talks, Nature Talks: Green

Crazy beautiful green talks. Such a powerful color that can bring joy along with misery the body and mind. No doubt that lighter shades of green will bring a brighter feel to the environment. Lime green, olive, and parakeet is a fresh color.

Asking a group of people “what is the first word processed when you see green?” most will say ‘Go' or ‘money' … maybe a few responses saying a clover or naming a vegetable. Traffic lights tell us that green means go when driving. No one has invented money in a different color, for centuries dollar bills are finished in dark green. St. Patrick Day is wide, celebrated with shamrocks and a leprechaun dressed up in black and green. Have you ever wondered why do some kids like green vegetables and others do not? It slows the metabolism, maybe kids do not want their metabolism slowed.
