When it comes to choosing what to wear from the wide spectrum of colours, there are two approached to take; dressing for your current mood or dressing for the mood you WANT to be in. Some days you may wake up feeling drab and need an instant pick-me-up colour to brighten your day, or you may wake up ready to share your vibrant energy with the world and throw on a bright colour to represent this. On the flip side, we all have those days where we look for a more minimal outfit to reflect our laid back approach to the day!

Whatever it is you choose, what does your colour choice say about you and convey to those around you?

Wearing red is the ultimate fashion statement for a go-getter and the true definition of dressing to impress! Sparking emotions of passion and confidence, red is often regarded as a positive colour with a strong and powerful energy. Research shows that wearing red can actually bring out your inner confidence and result in a more confident and taller stance!

Therefore, opt for a red dress when ready to take action and get in the mindset of showing 2021 what you’ve got! Red is also well known to be a stimulating colour which makes it a flirtatious statement for wearing on a first date.

We adore yellow for its upbeat and happy nature and so do fellow dreamers and adventurers that aren’t afraid to take a step out of there comfort zone. Yellow conveys feelings of optimism, sunshine and laughter - who doesn’t want more of that in their life!? Throw on a pop of yellow for a warm and fuzzy feeling for an instant spark of joy! It’s quite difficult not to feel like you're having fun when wearing this warm and friendly colour. Studies have shown that yellow increases the production serotonin in the brain not just for the wearer, but all those around them too. What a joyous way to brighten up a room! Due to its eye-catching nature, yellow is also used to strike attention on billboards and street signs so whilst wearing yellow you can also expect to be the centre of attention.

A blue dress or navy skirt or pant is a stylish and way to strike a strong first impression with poise, often taking on a professional look and feel.
