Rules of Wear

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but your outfit says a million.

What you decide to wear day in and day out, to special occasions, formal and informal events — even to the grocery store — says a lot about you to others without the need to utter a word. In many ways, fashion is an evolution of ideas and interpretations of fads. It’s easy to transform. It’s always evolving. Put The Big Lebowski in a suit and his whole vibe changes; switch up Audrey Hepburn’s iconic black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to an athleisure ensemble (plot twist!) and you have a whole different movie. Your personality, your profession, your values, your interests — even your attitude toward life! — can be communicated via your wardrobe. Next time you want to switch it up and experiment with some new looks, go for it. Try on a new style. Mix and match patterns. Explore new brands. Don that color you said you’d never wear. Splurge on a new “investment piece.” When it really comes down to it, all any of us really want is to put our best foot forward.
