The Power of Colour: What You Wear Reveals Your Personality

Psychologists, advertisers and personal stylists understand the power of colour and how it impacts your thoughts, emotions and actions. The colour of your outfit also projects your persona and influences how others react and respond to you.

Every day, you choose certain items because the colour emphasizes your skin tone or makes you feel fabulous. But you also subconsciously pick colours to send subtle messages like I’m romantic, sophisticated, fun-loving, and a hoot to hang out with!

Knowing the significance of colours will help you choose clothes to conquer your day, shape first impressions, and maybe even tip important decisions and circumstances in your favour.
