Has anyone ever told you that a certain accessory, color, or shoe is exuding a specific energy from you? When shopping with a friend, has she ever said to you, “Yeah, you can pull off that. I would never be able to!” The answer to this is confidence and color combination. You can pull it off.
Unless you’re going for a serious job interview, try to get past what other people are thinking about your outfit and just put it together. If it doesn’t feel right, it most likely isn’t. Down in the Meatpacking District, an Italian once said “Your necklace is exuding so much energy.” He began to talk about a new possible major: fashion psychology. Some design schools do indeed offer such a course—an interdisciplinary collaboration between art historians, psychologists and fashion specialists. But without making it a scholarly study, which color combinations are effective is in your mind and instincts.
