Blondie: Black Is Black

Black is considered to be the most elegant color, the one that goes along well with just anything. Practical since it can be worn at any time of the day (I prefer at night) and on any season (Fall/Winter months are the best, leave color for Spring/Summer).

Blondie, one of the most representative Rock acts of the late 70s and early 80s, posed for the photo below with all of its members dressed in black. Taken probably around 1978 inside a lobby in New York, this photo is not only outstanding by its composition and layout (the giant spheres, the lighting, the perspective); but also by the elegant New Wave/Punk inspired clothes worn by the members of Blondie.

Grey is a great alternative to black, it is a bit brighter yet it's still dark and elegant as well.

Grey and black is a good combination.
