According to the UK's Mail Online, fashion's favorite hue (black, of course), may not actually be "universally flattering". Not sure I agree, but here's what they have to say:

Black has long been lauded for its ability to flatter women's figures and suit every occasion. But the colour has a rather less flattering side-effect say the experts - it ages the face. Black clothing can highlight dark lines under the chin, shadows around the eyes and wrinkles on the face, colour consultants say. And it can even make those who wear it appear to have dark 'spokes', or fissures, in the iris. While black does give the appearance of a slimmer figure by making the shadows from less visible, wearing it next to the face brings out the worst, explained colourist Jules Standish.

Yikes! H&M "destroys" clothes it doesn't sell! To be fair, H&M reps have commented that this isn't standard practice at most of their stores and that they won't do it anymore, but it's still very sad that this was happening at all.
