Notes from a Swedish stylist

Shirt and shoes, Filippa K. Trousers, Acne Studios.

Do you think that your outsides reflect your insides? Do you, like I, feel a bit boring when dressing all in black? Or do you feel empowered?

The past week I’ve been spending most of my time in a studio basement, not seeing any daylight, and I only feel like wearing black from head to toe. Being curious about the meaning of this color, I found something I didn’t expect to find, and it made me feel better about my color of choice:

“The color black affects the mind and body by helping to create an inconspicuous feeling, boosting confidence in appearance, increasing the sense of potential and possibility, or producing feelings of emptiness, gloom, or sadness.”

What do you think about that?
