What are you trying to say with what you’re wearing right now? Is it possible to be both on-trend and on-message? Many of us view fashion as a strong and effective way to send a message to others: about who we are, what we value, and how we’re currently feeling about the world in general. Consciously or not, what we choose to wear every day signals a great deal to others – which is why it pays to put some thought into it. Done well, fashion helps us claim our space in the world; support what we are passionate about; or just inject some wit and color into a dark or dull situation. Our feeling is that you have to get dressed anyway – so why not make your attire work harder for you?
