And the new black is...



anntaylor.jpegNavy is the new black. So says Ann Taylor in an ad for its new spring collection. Like brown was the new black two years ago? Or gray was the new black the following year?

Puh-lease! I'm always looking for alternatives to my LBD. But black is always black, perfect for all occassions, understated and timeless. Black will never be replaced, and to say otherwise is just a marketing ploy.

Case in point: My brother announced this weekend that he needs to buy some new jeans, because skinny is the new bootcut. True, skinny legs are in, but any jean that looks sharp -- and bootcut never fails on most body types -- is the style you want to be wearing.

Then again, I could just be ranting. What do you think -- is navy the new black?
