ENTER THE MATRIX
Jeb Fronda, MEGAstyle Editor-in-ChiefBlack has always been my go-to color ever ever since I can remember. When I was a chubby kid I knew that black would definitely hide the parts that I didn’t like. Now that I’m older and not caring too much about how my body looks, black would always make for a chic statement. Don’t get me wrong, I still love me some color but with the lazier days created by staying at home, facing a computer all day for Zoom calls, the easiest way to look presentable and elevated is through the color black.

Want to look sexy? Wear it in sheer and lace. Powerful? Choose tailored pieces. Easy and carefree? Pick up some co-ord knits. With everything that’s happening in the world, sometimes we just want an easy way to look put together as quick as possible, and my answer would always and forever be the darkest shade of black.

Mika Reyes, Beauty & Features WriterI didn’t choose white because it’s my favorite color. I chose white because it’s timeless, effortless, and my favorite color. Going in to quarantine, we didn’t expect the amount of time we’d be spending at home.

In the process, I found that the color white has been my go-to for all my indoors meetings, whether they be personal or professional. Additionally, many brands have played with white throughout the year 2020. Truly, the basic shade has become more than just a fashion staple. It has become the symbol of a clean slate—a fresh start to creativity.
