When it comes to colour, there is scientific evidence showing that certain shades can have a direct impact on our mood.
An article in The Muse suggests that workplaces carefully consider the colour of their office interiors if they want to get the most from their employees.
When it comes to clothing, experts suggest that even those with multi-coloured wardrobes still opt for certain colour preferences and that these choices can say a lot about your personality. Let’s discover what your favourite colour says about you and how you can style your favourite colour this summer.
Black is a colour synonymous with professionalism, seriousness and prestige. If you are someone who likes to wear a lot of black, you are probably intelligent, ambitious and like to give off an image of power and seriousness. Although black is not a typical colour for summer, some studies suggest that it can actually keep you cooler as it stops body heat reflecting back out into clothing; instead, it allows the body to absorb it, thus keeping cooler.
Blue is a naturally calming colour with connotations of the sea and sky. It can give people the impression of reliability and tranquillity, making it a good choice for an interview! In summer, an AX Paris blue maxi dress could be a perfect outfit to keep you cool and calm.
Red is the ultimate colour of power, passion and love. People who are wearing striking red outfits tend to be making a statement and may be excitable, confident and energetic. In the heat of summer, red can be a perfect colour for the sun. If you’re not committed to a full red ensemble, accessories such as shoes and handbags can have a similar but more subtle effect.
Grey has experienced increased popularity in recent years, but it is essentially a neutral colour with mysterious connotations. While a red blazer or blue maxi dress screams “Look at me!”, grey outfits tend to be for people who prefer to blend in.
Yellow is a naturally happy colour. Evoking images of sunshine, sandy beaches and pretty flowers, yellow clothing tends to be favoured by creative and cheerful souls. A yellow summer dress could be the perfect outfit for outdoor adventures this summer.
