Colours Therapy: How to Make Your Clothes Make You Happy

Hello Gorgeous,

Have you ever noticed that sometimes just by putting on your favourite top you have a great day? There’s no denying there’s a correlation between looking great and feeling great. But how about what colour you wear effecting your mood?  Is there a more literal meaning to the saying ‘seeing red?’ Well, according to the scientists at the Feng Shui Society, the colours you see can really affect your mood:
Our bodies are stimulated and energised by some colours, or calmed and relaxed by others. Mentally and emotionally, colour works on a deep level, changing our mood and our sense of well being, as well as others' perception of us.”

so what colours for what moods?

Black: Associated with silence and death it can be a ‘heavy’ colour to wear. Black is often a sombre colour but it can also be sophisticated and can allow you to blend in and hide from the world.

Red: Has physical associations with the body and blood as well as love and romance. If you see something red it is even said to help circulation. Hence why so many people have it as a dating colour, in the hope they get their loved one’s blood pumping! Because of this it also represents vitality, ambition, power and prosperity.
Orange: Is a warm and happy colour. It frees and releases emotions and is fun and uplifting.

Yellow: Also a bright and happy colour, and is associated with the intellectual side of the brain. So, if you want to have an organised day then yellow is the colour for you. If also helps you be clear headed, alert and decisive

Green: Is the colour of nature, its balancing and calming. If you’re in a stressful situation, you naturally seek it out as it soothes and calms the emotions.

Blue: is cooling, calming and relaxing like the deep blue sea and can also help you to be reflective.

Purple: Is a deep rich colour which is spiritual, artistic and creative.

White: The colour of purity, it is a colour of protection and alleviates emotional shock and despair and is another reflective colour. However, it can also be very cold and isolating.

So next time you’re dreading doing a presentation at work, reach for the yellow dress for an instant pick-me-up. Or when you’re picking out a vest top for your yoga class, perhaps blue would be best?

Embrace the Feng Shui of fashion in your wardrobe and become one with nature. Oh, darn it’s that green top influencing me again!

Hugs and cupcakes,
