Wearing white for a wedding and black for a funeral is symbolic of the mood the wearer should feel for the occasion. Similarly wearing other colors can boost our mood. Have you walked into a room where the walls were painted blue and felt a sense of calm? Well this same feeling can be achieved by the colors we wear. African clothing is very brightly colored. I’m inspired to wear colors for the occasion and mood I’m in. Rarely do I wear black, but it is a color that I wear year round paired with a lighter color. Brown tones and grays are great for fall and winter. Perhaps you will add some new colors to your wardrobe this year. Maybe you have never worn African inspired clothing but always wanted to.
