The shoes with the worst color palette.
My wife is a flapper (not in the way that makes you feel like you are walking into a dressing room in a church, but in that you’re dressed to the max in all the right colors to look good to everybody), but she wears something with two colors every day for work. I’ve seen her wearing something that looks very casual, even if she is wearing the exact same outfit every day, and she is wearing it with a beautiful red flannel dress. She seems relaxed and in control as well as beautiful! And then there are her husband’s outfits with a beautiful color palette, but with the exception of a black dress on special occasions, they almost always wear a red dress, something not even remotely flamboyant. It’s not just the colors they wear but also how they style their hair. I’m not complaining about one person or family, but a world. Or at least a world you are starting to inhabit.
Some of you may be nodding, “Hmmm, why aren’t everyone wearing red?” Well, here’s the point. There are actually a lot of reasons to avoid wearing red on Fridays. It’s the most casual color. It’s the one everyone gets for any occasion. To most people it represents a whole different world from the one you actually live in. And it has been a part of our culture for decades! Even today, flappers like to dress as modestly as possible, and wear what is “just right.” In other words, don’t “walk into a dressing room in a church and look like you just walked in.” You should look like you just walked in. To be sure, if you’re wearing the exact same outfit every day you’re probably doing it wrong, but that’s not the point. What’s the point? To some people, the red dress just looks like a really pretty red dress. And to others, it just looks ugly.
The problem with red isn’t necessarily that it’s the most casual color, or even the most fashionable (which it does have that effect on people, I assure you), but that, as a color, it has a very rigidly set identity. And as a rigid identity, it comes with a set of associations. People who wear red are usually known to have friends on opposite coasts, and often have traveled to that region themselves over the course of their life. If they also wear white, then they generally aren’t from that area of the country at
