Today I attended a career fair and got to have a little fun in the wardrobe department. They were telling us to keep it semi-business formal. What does that mean. There really is no such thing as semi-formal. You can't straddle the fence in matters formal.
I and most people took it to mean you can wear a suit but your only expected to wear an odd jacket and dress pants. As usual I prefer to wear suits when most dress down. I also wanted to send an informal tone yet business. I ended up wearing my lucky suit with my new sweater vest. The rest was just plain fun. I stuck to wearing stripes and didn't really consider the colors I was wearing. I just made sure the colors didn't fight each other.
Sometimes it is easier to avoid consciously choosing the colors you wear. I just went with my mood. This can lead to discoveries of color combinations that work for you. A recent one I discovered was pink and darker oranges. Another is dark green can match most colors, stick to the hunter green-ish colors. Chew on that for awhile and see where it takes you!
