Why You Should Wear Bright Colors

With our hectic lifestyle today, it’s easy to fall into periods of feeling like you are in a rut. But it’s important not to lose hope and find ways to get back on track. One of the easiest ways to elevate your mood is to brighten up your wardrobe. I’ve read a lot about science of colors. It has the ability to effect your mood- from the things we surround ourselves with to clothes we put on every morning. Red for example, is stimulating, and it’s a great color to put in your office. Pink is a calming color, and it would be perfect for a bedroom. Bright colors evoke feelings of joy and my favorites are yellow and blue. The right color can brighten up your mood and even improve your concentration.
This past weekend I went down to OC to visit my family for Mother’s Day. In the honor of this special day, I decided to incorporate the cheeriest colors into my outfit. The multi-color dress just screams happiness, and the bright blue coat with bell sleeves was just the perfect match for this dress. Some women may feel intimidated to wear bold colors, but in my opinion, these colors are flattering on any skin tone and the fact that they are scientifically proven to cheer you up is just a major bonus!

  5. I wrote the same post month ago! 😀

    I can’t imagine myself not wearing any color. I’m loving this coat, it’s shape color and these ruffles. I’m totally crazy about them <3

  6. I believe in the science of colors as well and do plead guilty to not wearing them enough. That’s kind of weird as I love bold prints and colors, but kind of like the routines we stick to that you refer to I tend to pick up something easy and monochrome (as that always works right…) Note to self, add more color. I think you made a perfect choice for Mother’s Day with this beautiful dress and that amazing coat to go with it. I love blue in every hue and that bright blue is really gorgeous on you!

  15. It’s true! Too often we wear neutrals or just all black because we find it the most comfortable colour to go to, but it’s so important to incorporate colours to our outfit too! It makes it fun and exciting and gives it the pop thag it needs in my opinion.
