Use steel bars.
Leave them unwrapped and the bike out in the rain.
Let bars rust.
You will then have naturally coloured bars with a rough surface that offers good grip.
Apart from that, why the hell does my fashion opinion matter? I'm happy to advise on type of bar tape but colour? Grow some balls man and make up your own mind. It's not hard to change if you decide you got it wrong.
