Fashionista is not a word I would use to describe myself but I do like to look nice and dress to my best advantage. In a continual quest towards life-long learning I've made efforts to educate myself on fashion and it's many facets.
Advertisers are not good fashion advisers as their intent is to sell merchandise, whether it looks good on you or not. With this in mind a "good job" shout out goes to Target for their latest 'color changes everything' campaign. This quick advertising spot does a great job of showing the dynamic difference color can make on anything.
Another good example, specifically for clothes, is in the opening credits of "What Not To Wear" (those seeking an education in fashion, you need to make this a favorite) provides a great demonstration of going from drab to dynamic, with color.
This opening sequence took me to the store for my son. Warm, summer tones are 'his' color. I learned that the right scarf would help his leather jacket go from a good look to a better look. Notice, along with the scarf, his shirt is also a warm color. Color makes a dynamic difference.
