If you’ve seen my instagram (@katesnumberones), you know I LOVE wearing pops of color. Being that it is Spring, pops of color are all over in the fashion world. I love adding color, whether it be in my clothing, jewelry, makeup, or even nail polish.
Did you realize that the color you’re wearing not only affects your mood, but targets a reaction from everyone who sees you? I’ll spare you the research and boring details, but basically experts say that the color you wear can and does make an impression on everyone you see, including yourself. 🙂
Red– strong emotions, powerful, confident, passionate, bold (PS- this is the color experts say to wear to an interview.)
Orange– energetic, refreshing, peaceful
Yellow– aggressive, happy, cheerful, high energy (some see yellow as one of the most “irritating colors”) hmmm…
Green– calming, optimistic, healthy
Blue– peaceful, productive, inspirational (some see blue as sadness)
Purple– royal, exotic, mysterious
Pink– romantic, creative, refreshing
Usually before I start my day I think about the color I want to wear. How am I feeling? What impression do I want to give off? I have to be honest, most of the time at work, I wear mostly black or gray. However, on the weekends and evenings, I am all about adding in color.
Usually I add in certain colors for certain events. Listed below are just a few ideas on what colors I usually wear to date nights, girls nights, errands, working out, etc.
Date nights: pink, purple, red
Girls nights: pink, yellow, orange
Weekend shopping: orange, yellow, red, green, blue, purple, pink *all the colors! 🙂
Errands: blue, green
Working out: blue, green
Work wear: blue, red, green
There is no strict rule and being creative and fun with your wardrobe and colors is a personal choice. Listed above are just some ideas of color pops you can add to your fun plans.
It’s exciting to think about all the different possibilities of adding color to your wardrobe. Wearing an all black dress or pant suit and a pop of red polish will look a lot different than black dress/pant suit with purple polish. If you’re going to an event, try to think about what vibes you want to give off and go from there.
Below are a few pictures of myself, wearing different pops of colors.
So ladies, what do you think? What color(s) will you be wearing this Spring and Summer?
If you want to see more and possibly be made into a series, let me know. We could go into work outfits, interviews, dates, etc. discussing colors and what you can pair together to look and feel your best!
Thank you so much for reading, pretty gal. Until next time…
