Sure, black flatters your curves and dark navy blue just does it for blonds, but what about all of those bright, peppy colors? Do they have any benefits? Indeed they do!
Humans are attracted to anything that is brightly colored. It’s no coincidence that children’s toys are neon oranges and tropical blues. It draws their attention away from the darker, more expensive items in the house such as the flat screen television and the new tea-kettle.
Different colors can have a huge impact on our moods, sometimes without us even noticing the change. Colors have long been associated with different moods and feelings such as blue for tranquility and cleanliness or purple for spirituality and nobility. Ancient cultures attached meanings to different colors, and so do we. So why not express yourself by wearing different, vibrant colors instead of the monochromatic wardrobe?
With autumn in the air, try some spicy oranges or fire-flame red long-sleeved shirts. Maybe even shock the scene in a turquoise sweater against a backdrop of those crunchy yellow fall leaves.
Here are some colors listed with their associated meanings to get you in the mood.
Red, Maroon, and Pink
Red is fierce, red is confident. Are you taking a trip to confront the tenants today? Wear something that makes you seem in control and in charge.
Maroons are beautiful for the evening, easy on the eyes and gorgeous with every hair color.
Pink is the essential girl color, pink is joy, pink is warmth and tenderness. Erring on the side of sensitivity today? Try on some pleasing pinks to perk up your persona.
Orange and Yellow
Like the grin of a jack-o-lantern, orange has something energetic, enthusiastic and playful about it. Orange demands attention, so if you’re planning on being in the spot-light, a zesty orange scarf may lure in the lookers.
