How to be Smarter: People love to tell others their life should be more structured. But if you take everything out of a messy drawer and attempt to put it back in neatly, sometimes not all of it will fit. Just because someone tells you your drawers–or your life–should be more organized and linear, doesn’t mean that is the best way for the things you find important to fit together.
How to be Prettier: You can wear black and navy at the same time as long as it looks deliberate. Have the black be a true black, and the navy be an obvious navy. If the colors are too close together (i.e. a faded black top with a deep navy pair of pants), the look will appear sloppy and unplanned.
