I've noticed that representatives of some artistic professions are more stylish than others. This includes painters, actors, and ballet dancers. And I'm not talking of when they're on stage, or just posing for photos (and I'm sure as heck not talking about all those lame fashion trends), it's just the way they dress in general that is different, and good.
So, what's the secret?
Maybe because being in the visual arts gives them a sense of style and color that others recognize as great but don't know why?
I've actually started dressing a little more colorful since taking up art. I have a greater appreciation for color and like to wear more colorful clothes now. Not always and not real crazy stuff but I do have a pair of bright orange sneakers that I like.
