✒ Colors

👠  How much does color determine our choices, or how precisely do we choose our clothes?  Colour influences our mood & our psychological state. Have you ever worn a fiery red sweater that doesn’t blend in with your black mood? Red creates extroversion & physical activity. Colour therapy: it’s useful if you’re low on vitality. In Ancient Rome, it was the color that indicated gods like Apollo & Mars.

Yellow & Orange are other energetic, signalling colors. Yellow is the the color of the sun when it’s high in the sky. It separates thought from action, stimulating instant rational activity: in Buddhism, it’s the color of humility. Orange, however, is the color of joy & enjoying yourself. Whether you’re wearing it, or just hear someone who is, it infuses you with good humour & warms the heart. In Japan & China, it’s the color associated with .

White is the combination of all the colors – it’s fresh, sunny & clean. It’s the light of the sun, which improves our mood, & wearing white clothes means that the skin filters onto the skin, revitalizing us. It’s associated with life, & peace – hence the famous white flag. When we’re immersed in the natural world, we feel pervaded by its calm  – green is the color of the nature, which in Christianity signifues immortality. It’s a color that has a balancing, relaxing effect on us: a tonic for our bodies. Blue is the color of the sky, fresh & serene, & its darker shades create calm: is you’re wearing something blue, it relaxes you & give you a sense of peace, releasing emotional tension. It’s perfect if you don’t want to seem over the top because it’s a color that’s reserved & elegant.

Violet is sensual & spiritual. Depending on whether the shades is light or dark, it guides you towards meditation: it’s the color of awareness & intelligence, in Ancient Rome, it was the color of .

Pink is the feminine color par excellence. It suggests gentleness & sweetness, it has a positive influence on your mind & improves your perception of things. Now we come to the delicate colors that after predominate in our wardrobes: brown, grey & black.

Brown is the color of the earth & indicates renunciation & penitence – think of the habits of Franciscan monks. All variants of this color provide us with warmth & stability.

Grey is a reassuring & neutral color, ideall for any occasion: it has the capacity to enhance & brighten all the other colors if they’re used in combination with it. It’s advisable to use it in combination because on its own it has a tendency to cloud your mood  – perhaps we could say it’s greying? The much-loved black is not a color – it’s the darkness of night, the total absence of color. It’s mysterious & attracts people’s attention because it doesn’t let light through & so hides what’s underneath. It’s often our first choice for evening-wear for elegance & slimming effect. But aside from being the best choice to wear after dark, it’s important not to overuse it because is can depress you & sap your vitality.
