Wearing Color with Intention – Part 3

In Part 3 I am addressing four popular colors that can be used as accent colors or also as neutrals in deeper values…Green, Blue, Turquoise, Purple.  If you missed Part 2 about other accent colors, check it out in last week’s post here.


This color is nurturing and rejuvenating. It’s peaceful to be around, friendly and kind.  Use it to chase away personal self-doubt and help you re-boot that project you lost faith in. Wear it when you could use some sustaining energy. It’ll encourage you and others at the same time. It’s a great color for a winter coat, a knit dress, sweaters, or skirts. It can be a daily mantra if you have it in a green wallet and pull out it several times a day.


This color conjures up stability, professionalism, trust, and reliability. It’s long been considered a color that conveys good communication, and honesty. When you need to be the voice of reason, or the mediator in a tense situation, wear blue. It’s soothing and calming. Wear it in a shirtdress, a silk blouse, or a mohair sweater. It’s easy to wear blue in a scarf. Consider looking for blue eyewear the next time you’re shopping for glasses.


This color has the characteristics of being friendly, outgoing, fresh, and young. Use it when you are networking or anytime you feel the need to break the ice with people you don’t know. People will open up to you when wearing this color. Find it in a blouse, a wrap dress, or short coat. American Indian jewelry uses turquoise a lot. If it suits your style, consider wearing some turquoise jewelry. A neck scarf or leather goods are another choice for keeping turquoise around you.


This color carries with it the traits of luxury, creativity, and loyalty. It can also be spiritual and magical. Wear it to enhance your powers of intuition, or when you want to bring out your creative nature. Purple stands out in a trench coat, a pencil skirt, or a short sleeve cashmere sweater. Adorn your neck with a purple-jeweled statement necklace or carry a purple clutch.

Color is one of my specialties and wearing the right color for the right situation is both an art and a science. I’d love to help you make great choices for you and your lifestyle.
