Style should not be your only consideration when updating your wardrobe. What is just as important is the color of your fashion choices when striving to improve your mental outlook.

Each Fashion Color Is Interpreted Differently by the Brain to Affect Mood

For instance, red is the exhilarating, energetic color that you want to wear when seeking attention or inspiring creativity. Red is a “hot” color associated with fire. This is why red has always been a sexy color whether for cars or smoldering red lips that mysteriously seduces and yet  is wildly compelling with how dangerous it might also be when getting too close.

If you’re typically meek and not as outgoing as you would like or your thoughts are at a standstill, adding a red dress, blouse, shirt, or pants to your wardrobe could help bolster some extra confidence. You can also try gradually working some red fashion into your outfits by picking up a new scarf, a handbag or shoes for that matter to test out the effect for positive feedback and your comfort level.

On the other hand, skip wearing red if you are stressed and angry, which can lead to bad outcomes, especially if you have a business meeting planned. Red can provoke and lead to confrontation in the state that your mind may be in.

Blue is a color that signifies reliability and someone that you can depend on with total confidence. This is why dark blue is your best fashion color choice for business dealings. A navy blue suit to a job interview or wearing a blue “power” tie for a business function increases your chances with the trust and professionalism this color portrays.

Anyone having trouble with co-workers might want to try wearing more green colors. After all, green is of the earth and revolves around fresh green growth of nature. Green represents fresh hope for renewal of the spirit.

Perhaps, you have a habit of constantly putting yourself down. You may feel that you always have no chance at whatever you’re trying to do. Something that you might want to start doing is wearing some yellow color. Just as bright as the sun, yellow has potential to illuminate a glum attitude to light it up with more happiness. This is the color that can give you hope.

Turning to more brown color choices can have benefits at your workplace. You could be seen as not as emotionally driven as others in how you handle and organize tasks toward career challenges and financial success.

White colors are neutral and associated with what is pure and clean. Pairing a white item of clothing with your outfit offsets the other colors perfectly, reflecting that you’re a compassionate person that knows how to see all sides of a situation or problem to confront it with understanding and empathy.

By the same token, black evokes thoughts of darkness, mystery and power. Black is rebellious and beats to its own drummer in how autonomous vibes from this color can be.

If you want to intrigue, then wearing black can help you accomplish a sense of mystery. Likewise, it is also a great neutral for balancing other colors to work to your advantage, demonstrating your remarkable inner control. If you have a hard time making friends, then black can also be taken as standoffish from inviting people closer.

You can change your attitude and mental outlook. All you need to do is to take the time to consider the color of your fashion choices because they can help you achieve what you may not have expected to accomplish.

    I tend to wear alot of earth tones. Right at this moment though I am in a tie dye shirt. I love the explosion of colors. I like blues though the best, and yes I do think color can affect mood!

    This is a good thing to keep in mind when you’re selecting paint color for your home.
