The concept of color psychology can be seen in marketing, art, design, and of course fashion. Although much of the “science” behind it is anecdotal and your feelings about color are very personal and are rooted in both experience and culture. One undeniable fact is that colors can affect moods, feelings, and even behaviors.
Few things compare to the pure joy and anticipation I feel when planning my outfits for Fashion Week. Coming only twice a year, these are the few days when I can bring out my most extraordinary pieces, and my favorites. Spending the majority of the year nearer the back of my closet, these garments and accessories are brimming with the need to be worn. Because while I love wearing trendy pieces all year round, these unique gems pack enough punch to stand out in the crowds of trend-wearers come Fashion Week.
It’s Saturday morning and you’re window shopping before late brunch. As you hop from boutique to boutique with no real intent to make a purchase, you see it. There it is, glimmering in an imaginary celestial spotlight: the perfect staple piece. It’s from a brand you know and love, and you can picture yourself wearing it a dozen different ways over the next decade. You know you’re going to buy it as soon as it slips over your shoulders in the dressing room, and you mentally start making space in your closet.The timeless, yet modern, staple piece.
