What Do Your Colours Say About You?
I truly believe that colours invoke feelings. There are certain colours I really have to be ‘in the mood’ to wear, and colours that I wear for specific occasions to empower or encourage certain feelings.
Take red – I like red, and a nice blue based red actually looks nice on me. But if I’m not having a great day and feeling low in energy I stay right away from red.
I see it as an energetic, ‘up’ colour – if that clashes with my mood it doesn’t feel right to me – so I don’t wear it.
When I need to assert myself, I tend to wear black as it makes me feel powerful and gives me courage and a ‘We’re not gonna take it’ attitude.
Here’s my take on what feelings some colours invoke:
Yellow: Cheerful, happy and energetic
Orange: Same as yellow but with more oomph!
Red: Energetic, outgoing, extroverted, sexy
Pink: Sweet, innocent, romantic and feminine
Purple: Mystical, mysterious, creative. (Many people I know born in February, including myself, gravitate to purple – is this true for you?)
Blue: Calm, serene, trustworthy, reliable
Green: Stable, sincere, often associated with money.
Black: Power colour – strength and sophistication, says, ‘take me seriously’
White: Pure, innocent, fresh
Confession time: I always match my underwear to my mood or the emotion I want to harness 🙂
