Bright Colours

November 27th, 2012

Bright colours can be a scary concept. People very easily steer away from them for fear that they will look bad. I am here to try to help you make that transition from bland and pale colours, such as blacks, greys, etc. to bright colours, such as bright blues, reds, and eventually oranges and yellows…

First I want to list to you the reasons why brighter colours can be better:

  • They can give you confidence, and people pick up on your confidence
  • Brighter colours can affect your mood for the better – they can make you feel more energetic, happier, brighter and warmer
  • Brighter colours can help you to get noticed. Most immediately, this is a good move if you are trying to get a new job or a promotion, but even on a more convenient level, they can help you be noticed in large crowds such as pubs or clubs, which is great if you are trying to make new friends or entice a new partner
  • They can make you more memorable – if you are going on a date or attending a group interview, you want to be remembered, especially if you know you have competition. Generally, an employer or potential partner will be more likely to remember you if you are generally easier to remember, weather that is by saying interesting things or wearing a bright outfit.

The best way to work bright colours into your wardrobe is as follows:

  • Brightly coloured knitted cardigans – they can be a great way to add colour to your wardrobe. If you are not as comfortable with bright colours yet, a cardigan allows you to continue wearing clothes you are comfortable in whilst you make the transition.
  • Vintage style can be a great method of introducing colours you are dubious about – or indeed any of the huge fashion trends of the time. Combining styles (a style you are confident with and one you are not confident with) means you can feel confident whilst being a little daring.
  • If all else fails, accessorise. Use bright shoes, jewellery, bags, makeup, tights, etc.

    I agree to all the reasons esp. the one when you want to be easily remembered by your future business partner or boss. Wearing bright colors to parties will really make one the the center of attention most esp. when she/he carries the clothing very well.

    i agree with all the reasons but i am not into bold plain colors because of my size. though a few shades looks good on me raw. ^^ bright colors are great for the winter season. it sparks up the gloomyness of the winter cold.
