When black and white isn't clear

Senator Debbie Stabenow introduced a bill on unemployment insurance last week. She wore black and white:

I can see why she probably chose this outfit. A dark suit and crisp white blouse convey maximum seriousness. But this color palette is much too severe for her. Combined with button earrings and stiffly coiffed hair, she looks impenetrable. Charcoal gray and pale green would have accomplished the professional image she wanted with a more accessible finish.

  1. Agreed. At very least a warmer colored blouse instead of the stark white would have been a better choice.
