The colors we wear on our bodies can send out a very powerful psychological message to the world around us. Color psychology is a science that has been receiving a lot of attention in recent times, with experts saying the colors you wear can have a significant influence of first impressions. So with that in mind, let’s look at some bold and beautiful colors and what they say about you.
- Royal Blue
This is absolutely my favourite color!
Royal Blue says you are regal, elegant and unique. As its name suggests- this was the color associated with Royalty in centuries gone by. It looks equally amazing on men and women, and will have you feeling like a true Noble. A Royal Blue jacket adds a vibrant and bold look to an outfit. A Royal blue shirt paired with a pair of pink pants says sophistication as well as playfulness, and Royal Blue combined with Yellow will say Elegance and Vitality.
