I've noticed that once people have grey hair, they don't wear a lot of black, at least in summer. I was wondering if it's more generational or flattery.

It seems like gen X and younger wear more black in general than prior generations. My grandmas didn't wear black at all that I remember. My grandma from Brazil used to, but was told it was the color of mourning and she stopped. Or maybe it was considered just an evening color in the past?

My mom used to wear more black than she does now, but it still suits her. She doesn't wear grey either, usually blues and purples.

I assume I'll still wear black after going grey. Can't picture switching to grey or blue with my warm coloring.
