The busier I get, the more I understand "The Uniform". Some of the most creative and productive people have worn uniforms - Steve Jobs, Michael Kors, Johnny Cash, Mark Zuckerburg - and it appears black or gray is the color of choice. Fast Company says - "Wear the same clothes everyday. Making a lot of small decisions all day wears out your brain for the big stuff."
As I said yesterday, I think we wear a uniform even if we don't plan on it. I know I want to wear soft shirts. I usually wear dark straight-legged jeans. And I default to gray. So, this morning, I thought about how I could elevate my wardrobe to the nicest items I would actually wear every day. It appears I need to buy some gray jeans, a few blazers, and some black slip on sneakers.
