I've once heard that the key to dressing well is knowing what looks good on you. Accordingly, people like Alan Flusser and many others, recommend looks that compliment you features (or at least draw attention to your face), eg what kind of collar or glasses for an angled face, what to wear if you're tall, what to wear if you're thin, etc etc creating very elaborate guidelines. I was wondering what your take on this is. Myself, I don't by it. When I think about dressing, I consider an overall look - what look am I going for, right now? Then I go for it, without being constrained by colors that compliment my skin tone, or shapes that flatter my face/figure. Otherwise, someone's going to tell me not to wear a spread collar, or "don't wear yellow" or something like that. By virtue of my stubbornness, am I holding myself back from looking as good as I can? Please enlighten me. btw, if you can't tell, it's a slow day at work.
