As the days get shorter and temperatures drop, eye catching colors are a welcome interruption to the flat dark color palettes of fall. Bright saturated colors have power, especially when unexpected shades materialize.
While very little scientific research has been done on color psychology, it is virtually indisputable that wearing a “power” color elevates an outfit as well as the mood of the individual wearing it. So, what exactly are power colors and what are the benefits of wearing them?
A power color is a shade that significantly flatters the individual who is wearing it. It’s a color that brings a smile to your face, makes you walk with more confidence and catches the attention of friends and strangers. The benefits of a power color extend beyond enhancing our appearance and radiating positive energy. They make us feel electric.
The tremendously gifted artist Henri Matisse said “With color one obtains an energy that seems to stem from witchcraft.” Eliminate the element of mystery by identifying the colors that best suit you. We encourage you to wear your power colors more frequently and experience color driven empowerment.
