Our perception of different colors is determined by customs, cultural traditions, and, in many ways, by nature itself. For instance, the color red is known to increase our pulse rate. Hence, when it comes to choosing your wardrobe, selecting the right colors can both improve your mood and make you more attractive to those around you.
In this article, Bright Side offers you some useful information on the range of emotions that different colors can generate. By using our guide, you’ll be able to look and feel great!
This color is not as straightforward as it might seem. Wearing red requires daring and judgement. You’ve got to select a hue that will go well with the color of your skin. A red outfit can increase your self-confidence and make you stand out in a crowd. Whether you’d enjoy the newfound popularity is another question. In most parts of the world, the color red possesses the aura of dangerous passion and sexuality. Unless you’re in India, of course, where it is the traditional color of bridal dresses!
A combination of red and black has long become a fashion classic. You can also wear red with white or beige for a more balanced and mellow effect.
According to well-known style expert Jeannie Mai, this sunny and life-affirming color can help you find a rapprochement with even the most stuck up and prudish personages. However, as with the red color, you must be careful to select a hue that won’t clash with your skin. If you feel unsure about the hue you’ve chosen, try it out first with accessories or skirts — items that won’t affect your upper body color scheme.
Being an antipode of red, blue affects our physiology by reducing blood pressure. Whether you’re planning to unwind after a hard day at work or preparing for an all-important first date, wearing blue is the surefire option. This color is certain to both help you relax and create a positive first impression!
If the hue proves to be too dark, you’d be wise to soften the image by combining your blue items with neutral or light-colored clothes.
Another color that can be calming and invigorating all at once. Green has many hues, which makes it suitable for all skin types. If you want to accentuate your green items, use neutral-colored accessories. When using a subdued hue, you can play around by combining green items with jewelry or a bright-colored hat. Whatever your choice might be, try not to go over the top!
This color is essential for creating an experienced and self-confident impression. For example, we recommend you to wear violet to a job interview. "Violet items can make a young face look more mature," notes Jeannie Mai. Moreover, violet can liven up even the most mundane appearance. A violet-based color scheme is ideally complemented by pastel hues.
The color that suits everyone! When it comes to clothing, black is famous for creating a slimming visual effect. Generally speaking, black-colored items can create a dual impression of sadness and heightened elegance.

A color that combines the sunny quality of yellow and the profoundness of red. Orange is thought to be ideal for stimulating activity and awakening creativity. You shouldn’t offset such a self-sufficient color with anything conspicuous. Try using it in combination with cold or neutral colors, instead.
