What is your color saying about you behind your back?
How fun is this? We all know I love to say “look the part”. So when I hike I throw on my flannel with leggings, or if I am riding a bike I have the full biking gear with a twist of Jen thrown in there like rainbow tall socks with my tight little shorts. So have you ever thought the colors you wear are telling a story about you to others? I am always attracted to turq or blues…so itʼs interesting to see if what the experts say about color personalities are true to my style personality?
Finding out who you are and what colors you tend to gravitate towards may give you more of a therapy session then you thought. You may want to take notes right now so when your next job interview comes up you’ll know which color is going to get you that job by presenting you as a powerful person instead of a soft one. Unless of course you’re a yoga instructor or flower designer then you will want to wear those soft colors. Also how do you want to come off on that first date? Powerful, confident, soft, eager, sexy, or just simple and laid back? Well if you never thought about how the colors in your wardrobe tell others what type of personality you have, then you may want to read this:
Wear dark colors like Black And Navy To Convey authority and power. Black is also one of the most used color in fashion world because it makes you seem thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black is known as “The Classic” color. So I would suggest wearing these colors to a job interview with pop of color brought in by the accessories!
Wear pastels or neutrals to seem relaxed and friendly. Some pastel colors include easter green and soft purples. I like to use these in my Yoga Wear! Relaxed, easy-going in the spring time while watching the waves come in…in case you couldn’t tell, these colors make me feel very beachy. Just like my favorite brand Morris and Terry seen below:
Mix colors to convey creativity. Make sure to combine colors that match and compliment each other well, such as Purple and Red. Now this is one look that I feel screams JEN! Right, I am a crazy style mixer! I like a little of that and a little of this! Mixing is my thing and it just yells, HELLO WORLD I AM MY OWN PERSON!
Reds tend to vary on the message they send across. Red is an emotionally intense color. It tends to bring on fights and is used in fashion as a heavy color. It is also known for love. Burgundy conveys sophistication, while Blue–Red conveys assertiveness. An Orange–Red would be worn by someone who is lively. Let’s just say it this way…..I love myself some red. BUT I only wear it when I want a to send message and be heard. Like, here are my Red lips for everyone to see! Wearing Red is a fire cracker moment for anyone who wears that little red dress! I think it can be that sexy feel and also a bit more hot!
Wear Pinks to convey an open heart. People who wear Pink, regardless of gender, appear approachable and capable of loving others. Just like Miss Piggy! I think her favorite color is Pink and she very approachable you just want to hug her!
Wear whites to symbolize a new beginning. Wearing white can symbolize cleaning and offer a fresh, bright new outlook. Just like when you get married, right? Fresh, new, clean outlook into your future…..and come to think of it, maybe that’s why some wear black!
Wear Yellows to display warmth and optimism. This color carries the same healing qualities that are associated with the sun, optimism, and light. So if you are a therapist, I am thinking you may want to wear yellow to help all of us through our therapy sessions…righttt?
Wear Oranges to display high energy. Orange is a bold color that can make you feel quite playful. It’s also a color that has a great deal of sexual energy to it. So I would like say for your comforter, maybe go for those orange tones to bring some playful moments into your bedroom!
The color Blue is one of the most popular of all the colors. It causes the opposite reaction as red. You seem to be more peaceful and the color seems to cause your body to produce calming chemicals….so it is often used in bedrooms! Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms….which I found to be very interesting! So basically I want to paint my gym blue so I can get a killer butt and then slip into my blue pants and go over to my in-laws home to bring some peace! got it? Ok got it!
The Color Green It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in “green rooms” to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. So girls if a guy comes to pick you up on that first date wearing that dark green you may want to call him a “keeper!” And note to guys: maybe you should check into wearing some yummy green on those dates to impress. Just a thought?
So next time you go on a date, check out what your man or woman is tending to wear too much of. Now that I think about it, Simon Cowell with X factor always wears those tight, black and navy and grey sweaters or t shirts…..and he is a very powerful man! So the verdict is that the color personality test is dead on for him. See which color you have the most of in your wardrobe and then look at what kind of moods you want thrown into your 2012 wardrobe. Happy styling.
