Well, I'm not done with color and ornamentation, and I don't think a lot of other people are either. (And if you ask me, there's a fair amount of color and really quite a lot of ornamentation in the Fall collections.) I wore black for years and I'm still damn tired of it (and of being asked whether I was unhappy because I wasn't wearing color--I'm in the South). What finally jerked me out of my rut was the cleaners destroying a key black piece of my wardrobe. It was tough to replace, and so I decided to end the current season and take my wardrobe in a completely different direction for the next one. I don't mind low-key for Fall, I will have some black, but I'm planning more brown and teal. I don't think I'm the only one who's not going back to black ...

I want those McQueen boots so badly

I've never really followed the trend of colors for the season. However, I've always liked the sleek look of black, and how it can be a wonderful backdrop for my handbags, shoes, and jewelry.

ditto fashionista-ta..
said it before and i'll say this again.. black bores me to tears, its far too safe and common, i mean everyone's been wearing it non-stop and for years, so its not even a trend somehow... just the industry' s 'safe' reaction to a real tough -commerical wise- season...

absolutely not for me, i find black too boring

this may sound quite silly but i'm quite thin and i love being thin so i wear a lot of black (as well as it being one of my favorite colours) because i think it emphasizes the sillouhette

Black is a basic colour, and people have worn it forever. I happen to love it. It may be safe and boring to some, but not to me. I prefer to think of it as discreetly elegant instead of "boring camouflage".

Anyway, all black hasn't really been widely worn for quite a while now. It feels "new" to me. And I mean full, rich, deep black silks and wools, not washed-out cotton. :p

I like black very much, but I don't know what misterious reason makes me not wear a lot of black althought I love it. Maybe is what you're saying, that it looks boring and I hate lookig boring. But it's true that you look really thin in black, and I love it.

There is more to life, I have discovered, than looking thin
