    I always considered black to be Garanimals for adults, but easier (because we need it). One black item always goes with another (instead of giraffes with giraffes, zebras with zebras).
    Easier for laundry days, too. Black load, white load. Fini. No existential angst about whether some color will bleed onto others or get bled onto and come out muddy gray.
    I do love color, but it’s easy to get a rainbow’s worth in a jewelry box and scarf drawer.
