Do you think that the color of clothes should be associated with feelings?
I don't think so. And that’s something I told my cousin who was free to comment in an informal conversation that I don't wearing black, "so I feel well" and mourning over my father’s death was still going on. I felt bad. I immediately started writing this article to share with you my impression of disappointment. Are we going to measure someone's grief by the color of clothes?
I never chose clothes according to my mood. Many times I wore white when I was not happy, and black when I was the happiest in the world.
Although it is considered a kind of obligation and respect to wear black at a funeral, I have never been able to accept this rule. We don’t have to wear black to show others that we are in mourning. Black may be more reminiscent of grief than white, but white will not help you feel good in moments when the world is falling apart. Grief is inside, the appearance is changeable.
They say we wear red when we look forward to something, yellow and white when we are happy, black when we are sad. Maybe the colors can really affect the mood, but I don't think it can be related to the clothes.
Clothing is a personal choice of each individual in accordance with the style and comfort they want to feel in everyday life. Clothes make us feel comfortable. Then why do we sometimes refuse to feel comfortable in our clothes? Why do we allow clothes to wear us instead of us wearing clothes? To make others guess how we feel. No, that's the wrong decision.
I like to wear black but not to show others how sad I am. For me, there are no sad and happy colors. The colors are colorful, and the feelings are hard to understand if we only look at the surface.
Thank you very much for reading.
