Wearing Color with Intention – Part 1

Clothing colors don’t just look good on you or not; they do so much more! You’ll find lots of references about how color can be very healing, give you emotional support as well as help you express yourself. Before you purchase one more thing, read this color guide and consider choosing a color for the qualities associated with it. The color you wear could easily affect your mind, body, and soul!

July Navy 1

In Part 1, let’s address four neutral colors:  Navy, White, Black, and Brown

Navy
Wear this color and exude confidence, power, and authority. It encourages wisdom and self-reliance. When you want to be taken seriously and be recognized for your knowledge, navy is a good choice. Wear it in a shirtdress, a long cardigan, or the new wide leg pants. Add navy to your outfit with a brooch, watchband, or patent leather pumps.  It’s one of the best color choices for business.

July White 1White
The emotional tone of white is sincere, fresh and hopeful. Wear it when you want others to know they can rely on you. A crisp white shirt is an obvious choice but also consider wearing it in sweaters, a white wool skirt, a white coat or carry a white tote. Use it from head-to-toe and it’s creative, expressive, and elegant.

July black 1Black
This color portrays elegance, sophistication, high authority and formality. It can also be mysterious and sensual. Wear it when you want to command authority or look like you have it together. A black suit will quiet a room and focus attention on what you have to say. Black is easy to find in tops, pants, and dresses. Consider wearing a black wristwatch, handbag or belt.  But, black does not work for everyone contrary to what we might want to believe.

July brown 1Brown
Wear this color when you want to send the message that you are stable, genuine, and persevering. Wear this color and people around you know they can count on you to meet a deadline, or get your part of the project completed successfully. Wear brown in a jersey knit dress, riding boots, or a cashmere blend blazer. Use it in your accessory items in handbags, wood bangles, gloves, and scarves.
