Fashion Effects How You Feel

Get Decked Out in Green (or Yellow or Pink or Blue)

Proponents of color psychology agree: Pick a color that makes you happy, and go all out! Color has been shown to have a profound effect on how we feel.
While certain hues have been linked to specific emotional states (for example, research published in the journal Science showed that blue can inspire creativity and red can help you be more accurate), other studies show that different colors can provoke very different reactions in people.
“The important thing here is that if you find a certain color relaxing or motivating, wearing that color can give you a mental boost,” says Raja. “Basically, when you choose the color with the awareness of what it does for you — for example, ‘blue keeps me calm’ — you are also reinforcing that message in your mind.”
