Did you know wearing colors can even brighten your mood?

Here are some ways that color can affect your mood:

  • Red: A red outfit can increase your self-confidence and make you stand out in a crowd.
  • Yellow: This is a bright and life-affirming color that can help you find harmony.
  • Blue: This color affects physiology by reducing blood pressure and is sure to help you relax.
  • Green: Green is another color that can be calming and invigorating all at once.
  • Violet: This color is essential for creating an experienced and self-confident impression.
  • Orange: Color experts think orange is ideal for stimulating activity and awakening creativity.

Next time you’re selecting an outfit, think about the corresponding color needed for the task at hand. If you’ve got an interview, you could wear a blue outfit, as it is relaxing. Or you could even wear a combination of colors to complement and contrast.

Everyone has a unique group of colors that makes them look their best. Coordinating the right color combination can make the difference between a stunning outfit and an ugly one. You will want to try to stick to colorful spring outfits that match your undertone. While there are many different skin tones, there are only two undertones: warm and cool. Warm skin has a yellow or orange tint, while cooler skin has a blue or pale pink one.
