Make color your ally!

What color will you choose today?

What color clothes are you wearing right now? What about your accessories? We often have ideas about which colors suit us and which don’t, but if we limit the colors we wear based solely on this, we’ll be missing out on a lot of good options. Each color varies in a lot of ways, like brightness or intensity. So, for example, a primary red might not suit you, but there’s definitely another shade of red out there that will. So why not take this opportunity to find new colors that suit you? It’s becoming known that colors can affect you physically and emotionally, and can even affect the impression you make on others.

Colors affect your body and mind.

Let’s say you have to go out, but you’re not quite in the mood for it. In this situation, try looking at something red, or putting something red on. Your body will become more active, followed by your mind. Conversely, blue will put you in a relaxed state*. Colors also have a significant effect on your emotions, with green relieving fatigue*, yellow brightening your mood, and pink making you feel lucky*.

The effects of color are very useful for painting yourself in the best light for each situation. For example, if you want to project passion and a positive attitude, wear red. If you want to show you’re approachable to someone you’re meeting for the first time, wear orange. And, if you want to convey a mature dignity, wear a red-based purple*.

Find the colors that allow you to be yourself.

Try finding colors that suit you, and work them into your daily outfits. If wearing it from head to toe is not going to work, we recommend spicing up your outfit with something small, like a scarf or jewelry. Use the effects of the color palette, and you’ll be able to tackle bad moods and fatigue head-on. What’s more, you’ll be able to control what sort of an impression you make on the people you meet. You’ll be able to be the best you that you can be – what a great way to live your life!
