The Softer Side of Sears
Okay – I get it. Vive la difference. And I am there with you. But sometimes mixing it up can be a good thing – and actually heighten the experience of ‘la difference!’
Formal and party wear. If I were to describe attire that was soft, kinda clingy, flow-y, colorful and revealing, you would likely assume I was talking about a woman’s dress. In general, if we step back and look at the profile, we see the contours of the woman’s actual body. Idiosyncrasies and all. And sometimes that’s a good thing.
If I were to describe men’s party or formal wear, I might say structured, subdued colors, layered, angular? If we step back and look at the profile we see the contours of the suit or tux, not the man in it. Suits define the shape. And sometimes that’s a good thing.
But this weekend I was watching Saturday Night Live when Nick Jonas came out to sing his second song. I have no idea what he was singing because I was completely distracted by the suit he was wearing. It was soft, kinda clingy, flow-y, colorful and revealing. The profile? The profile was of the man inside it. And that was a good thing.
Vive la difference.
And on the seventh day ….
