I discovered during med school that when you wear a white coat, anything else you wear becomes muted. So much so that you can wear horribly bright shirts without so much as a second glance. And so, I began to experiment with colors. I discovered that orange and pastels match my skin quite well, that red is not a good color on me, and that deep blues should be avoided. And so, I have a closet full of orange and pink and yellow and sea foam and celery and lime and a host of other bizarre colors, and it feels quite nice to be so colorful.
