How Wearing Color Impacts Our Mood

Updated: Jan 4

Colors can have a surprisingly significant impact on your mood. For instance, bright warm colors like red, yellow, and orange can evoke feelings of energy, warmth, and positivity. On the flip side, cooler tones such as blue and green might promote a sense of calm and tranquility.

 

Colors can also influence the way others perceive you, and it's not just about personal style—it goes deeper into the psychology of colors.
