What do colours mean to you? Everything in the universe has a defined colour… can you imagine the world without them? Of course we do not see or better say understand colours in the same way. My red will never be the same as yours…
Colours come in nature and not only do they influence the fashion trends but mostly our emotions, our lifestyle, our mood, our everyday life and even our diet… And whatever we choose does show and reflect a lot about us and our personality.
Black is the color of power, elegance, mystery, fear but also strength and authority. The people who chose it want to differ from the others and choose their own way, something very common in teenagers. This is why you often see them wearing black clothes. Black is popular in fashion as it makes the silhouettes appear thinner. But it is undeniably stylish and timeless, a symbol for seriousness, authority, and responsibility. As an accessory it will gear up your style, the bolder, the more authoritarian!
White on the contrary is associated with purity, cleanliness and perfection. It gives a positive vibe and will liven anything you pair it with. Brides wear white to symbolize innocence while it is a colour used in design to give colour and brighten up its surroundings. The persons who like it are fond of changes: every new challenge is a good chance for them to take out their real character, beliefs and expectations. White glasses first appeared in the 50s and they come back to fashion every now and then. Avoid them if your skin colour is particularly light.
It is the most emotionally intense color, symbolizing passion and romance. It is the perfect date-night color, drawing attention to the wearer or to your eyes talking about eyewear. Being a strong colour it may also stand for leadership and strength. It affects the heart beat and the blood pressure and therefore it also stimulates the appetite so wear with caution if you're on diet. The fans of red are passionate persons, characterized by a great personality and self-esteem.
Like white, blue is also associated with purity. It is one of the most popular colours: the color of the sky and the ocean, blue is all around us and part of our nature. It is proven to create a sense of calm and friendliness (have you ever noticed that most popular social networking sites have used it as their main colour) and contributes to your creativity. It is suggested for interviews as it will add confidence and intelligence, not to mention elegance. If you like blue then you must be moved by deep feelings, and you are probably calm and interiorly balanced.
It is the colour of nature and the easiest color on the eye. It symbolizes freshness and rebirth, balance and harmony and indeed reduces stress in those who look at it. In fact people waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax, while in hospitals it is often used to relax patients. If you're feeling really overwhelmed during finals week, add green to your outfit and you might feel more relaxed.
Yellow is simply happy. It has long been associated with energy and encouragement. It can cheer you up on a bad day, so if you're feeling down, wearing yellow could help perk you back up. It is also associated with intelligence and inspiration, so wearing something yellow on the day of your big exam might help you come up with some extra answers. Whoever is fond of yellow is outgoing and enthusiastic about changes, characterized by a great sense of imagination.
It is a symbol of the ground and also indicates humility, reliability, faith, belief and trust. Brown is abundant in nature and may convey a great sense of tranquility and calmness to the wearer and to the ones sitting next to you. Obtained by the combination of yellow, red and blue whoever chooses is emotional and sensual, positive and satisfied of his/her life.
It would be difficult to have a frame for every occasion but now that you know what each colour stands for, you can choose the one that best expresses you!
