Country Colours: "but not black"

"Any shade of brown that is personally becoming, any 'natural colour' - beige, oatmeal, stone - most greys, most soft shades of the primary colours, and many mixture colours are good foundations for country colour schemes; but not black. Black is not a good country colour, except for formal clothes to be worn indoors; out of doors it always manages to make the wearer look as though she were going to or coming from a funeral."

Georgie Henschel's Book of the Well-dressed Woman, Phoenix House Limited, London 1951, p.38
