“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions,” the artist Pablo Picasso once remarked.
The Psychological Effects of Color
While perceptions of color are somewhat subjective, there are some color effects that have universal meaning. Colors in the red area of the color spectrum are known as warm colors and include red, orange, and yellow. These warm colors evoke emotions ranging from feelings of warmth and comfort to feelings of anger and hostility.
Colors on the blue side of the spectrum are known as cool colors and include blue, purple, and green. These colors are often described as calm, but can also call to mind feelings of sadness or indifference.
Hence, what we wear on us can sometimes sub-consciously tells the mood or who we are on certain days of our life.
Injecting more warm colours into our wardrobe will also evoke warm emotions from people around us.
After all summer is here! Why are we putting on cool colours when it is the most energetic time of the year.
