You are what you wear, especially when it comes to Feng Shui and the world of fashion. The colors you choose affect how others respond to you and influence your current emotions. Taking the time to be mindful and carefully select the fabric, color, shape and pattern of your outfits based on the five primary Feng Shui elements can mean a great deal. Fire, Metal, Wood, Earth and Water each has a particular shape, color and definitive attributes tied to it. Whenever you wear something that represents an element, you take on its unique qualities.
Here are some examples of the patterns, colors and other factors that represent each element of Feng Shui along with advice on the best times to wear them:

Colors: As you may have guessed, metallic colors are your best friend. If you prefer a more laidback Metal element that still takes advantage of its attributes, you can choose outfits in pastel colors or stark white.

Shapes: Curved shapes are all about elegance.
