Imagine yourself actually walking down the sidewalk/going on a date/picking up a turmeric nut milk latte dressed entirely—from your scarf to your sneakers—in vibrant flame red…does it make you feel challenged? Triggered even? This is not a look for the faint-hearted. While we are familiar and comfortable with dressing head to toe in neutrals, dialing it up to bolder and brighter hues will need temerity. Yet taking the plunge and wearing something vivid might just be the emotional panacea you've been looking for.
Color Therapy Expert Constance Hart says there's so much more to color than meets the eye. "Colors influence our emotions, moods, and also how other people respond to us. You can consciously choose which colors to wear, based on how you want to feel and what you want to receive from the hue or a feeling you want to project/convey to others."
