The science behind the perfect outfit


There have been so many days where we’ve been standing in front of our wardrobes wishing, that there was an exact science to putting together the perfect outfit. Getting dressed in the morning would be so much simpler, would it not?

Well, a new study asked 239 subjects to rate how fashionable men and women were from drawings, and then they used the results to devise a chart which could predict judgements across four different colour palates.

The results were very disappointing: “Maximum fashionableness is attained when outfits are neither too coordinated nor too different.”

Could they be any more vague?! They continued:

“…selecting a colour combination that is neither completely uniform, nor completely different. Certainly, moderate matching is not the only key to fashion, which varies across time and culture and depends upon many factors including cut, design, and trendiness.”

So what they’re saying is you need a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

The only advice we can take from this is that those matching skirt and jacket suits are OUT.

Back to the drawing board, ladies.
