It is human nature to judge people the moment we see them. The man looks confident. She won’t be able to make it. She’s not my kind. Even if we do not know someone, we tend to paint a picture in our mind about their personality.
On what basis? Their outer appearance, of course! The kind of clothes they wear, the way they carry their outfits and to top it all, their clothing colour.
Surprised? Yes. Clothing colour plays a definitive in the first impression you make.
There are many who argue that colours have no impact on our choices and behaviours. But would you wear a vibrant orange dress to work or would you paint your bedroom black?
Some would say no, but if colours do not influence choices, then why not? When you choose to use a clothing colour or avoid it, that action reveals much about your personality. Every colour is unique and has its own vibe, sending its own message to the world.
If you’d like to know what vibe each colour exudes, here is a guide for you to learn the language of every clothing colour shade.
A timeless favourite colour of many, black sends out a strong message of sophistication and elegance. Luckily the colour is no longer worn only as a token of respect to the dead; it is worn otherwise as well. In fact, almost all women love a little black dress in their closet. Black speaks extremes about a person, either too much or nothing. A person using black as their clothing colour comes out as a strong willed, authoritative and confident person.
Red denotes extroversion, energy and domination. If you like to stand out in the crowd, then red is the colour for you. A person who uses red as their clothing colour is thought to be full of passion and aggression. Red is also the colour for sensuality and boldness, just as a woman in dark red lipstick stands out as a bold and confident woman.
Blue is a colour which not only is soothing to the eyes, but also to the person who wears it. Blue signifies creativity, loyalty, peace and positivity. Along with having a peaceful and calming personality type, blue wearers also have their own set of rules for life. They come out as smart and witty people, who know their way.
A colour symbolising nature, gives out a relaxed, refreshing and healing vibe. The people who use green as the clothing colour strive for safety and security. They are very sensitive about the feelings of others. Green wearers are usually found in a big social circle and make for very good company. The colour also symbolises money, and green lovers tend to be vigilant with their financial standing and reputation.
There is no doubt about what a cheerful and optimistic colour yellow is. It turns all the heads in the room. Yellow wearers are usually big dreamers and aim to achieve perfection in life. ‘Logical and consistent’ are two adjectives that go hand-in-hand with the personality type which prefers wearing yellow. In addtion yellow wearers are often happy, kind and open, with power to brighten up any room they walk into.
A signature of royalty and wealth, purple wearers come out as creative and deeply sensitive people. These people have great love for art and have great artistic abilities. Purple shows that you have a rich inner life, are intuitive, artistic, creative, and have great instincts about people.
White colour signifies purity and peace. It is an ideal colour for you to wear for an interview. People choosing the colour white to wear are generally confident, sincere and courageous people. The colour also signifies cleanliness and has a positive effect on people.
