have you ever wondered how come when you watch movies... the SEXY babe is always dressed in RED or BLACK or Royal Purple?? and the girl next door is always in PINK, Green or yellow?
colour have been proven to affect us more than we think. like if you walk into a dark dull room you feel sleepy and bored... but if you're in a bright coloured store with many different colours being splashed out at you... you're suddenly so much more awake??

so why not use the same proven effects with your clothes?? channel some of that colours energy into your clothes and see what happens.. :)

Red (Jessica is surely a head turner in RED HUH??)
Want to get someone’s attention? Red is your color! The color red empowers and draws attention toward the wearer. It’s also strongly associated with romance and passion, making it a perfect date-night color. But be careful – it’s also been said that red stimulates the appetite and makes us hungry for junk food, so wear with caution if you’re trying to eat healthier.

(I love how carrie uses orange as such a fun yet sophisticated colour)
Just like red, orange attracts energy and attention. But unlike Red, it is a little more soothing and less VA VA VOOM. Orange though is a little hard to pull of with certain skin tones so be careful with this one.
(Rihanna surely rocks fashion. I love this use of yellow!! its the best i've seen!!)
sunny yellow is the perfect HAPPY colour. it can cheer you up on a bad day or perk you up when you're feeling a little blue... yellow is also associated with inspiration and intelligence so try wearing a tinge of it for that final paper or presentation!!!

Green (pregnant mommy better be wearing calm green... carrying those twins must be heavvvyyy)
ahhh... the colour of nature.. this colour is soothing and clam. It is one of the biggest shades at the moment so wearing Green won't only make you feel refreshed.. it also makes you a trend queen ! :) Green is also said to be able to reduce stress so try wearing the colour when you're feeling overwhelmed with work/studies...
(blue is so Katy... cool but standoffish)

Blue is a color that can be both peaceful and calming as well as cold and standoffish. If you’re feeling really stressed out, the color blue can help you feel more relaxed. If you’re sad, however, you might want to steer away – the color blue can subconsciously make you feel more “blue.” Studies also show that blue can make you more creative, so if you want to channel some genius for your art project, wearing blue might be able to help. It can’t hurt, right?


Regal and sophisticated, purple is associated with creativity and luxury. Like red, purple is a very stimulating colour which can boost your energy level when you see it. It’s also a color that’s sometimes associated with spirituality and intuition, so if you’re having trouble making a decision, paint your nails lavender and see what comes to you.


(who else for pink but paris)

Of course we all know pink as the true girly-girl’s favorite color, but it’s also associated with romance and happiness. Pink is very calming, so don’t wear it if you need tons of energy. Because of its romance association, pink is a good choice for a date. You can also wear it anytime you’re a little bummed out for a boost. Of course, if you personally hate pink, then (obviously) this won’t work for you.


(0ne of the best known white outfits of all time)

Missing summer on a cold spring day? Wear white! It reflects light and reminds us of sunnier days. It’s also associated with peace, innocence, simplicity, and cleanliness, although in Japan, white carnations mean death – who knew? Wear white when you want to bring out any other colors you’re wearing – it enlivens anything you pair with it.


If you’re going for a promotion at work or interviewing for a new job, you might want to wear black – it signifies power, seriousness, authority, and responsibility, all qualities your boss is likely looking for. Outside the office, black is also a color that will give you some rocker-chick edge. If you’re shy but want to feel like a badass one day, some black studded glads or boots should do the trick!

These are just some ideas for new ways to think about color in your wardrobe – obviously they aren’t steadfast guidelines that you should plan your outfits around every day.
