If you look in my closet, it’s mostly dark colors. There are lots of blacks, browns, greens and for variation shades of gray. I get wild and wear blue some days. I guess earth tone is an accurate description. Funny thing is, I wear purple a lot.
I tend to favor the paisley and bull’s eye patterns. They can stand out really well if you accent them with yellow and green. It’s eye catching in an otherwise bland wardrobe. The trick is to wear it as a highlight. Too much and it takes away from the overall effect and throw people off. It looks a little creepy. Makes others uncomfortable.
It’s also neat if you have a good story to explain why you’re wearing the splash of color. “I walked into a door.” is boring and lacks (excuse me), punch. Instead, try, “I got caught between a Pilates class and a troop selling Girl Scout cookies”. And, finally shake it off with a manly laugh. Next week we will talk about “The Art of Scars”. Until then, Man Up!
