Why should you wear more colour?

Why should you wear more colour?

As a fashion stylist, I have always been fascinated by the unique impact that colour can have on our mood, confidence, and even the way others perceive us. Colour is not just a visual experience; it’s a psychological one that influences our emotions and actions. Do you wear colour? Can we explore how incorporating more colour into your wardrobe can transform not only your look but also your outlook?

Colour has its own language and psychology. Various studies have shown that different colors can evoke different feelings and moods. For example, blue is often seen as calming and can help in environments where focus and calmness are needed. Red, on the other hand, is associated with energy and passion, making it a great choice for days when you need a boost of confidence or when you’re heading to a high-stakes meeting.

But it’s not just about how you feel. It’s about how you make others feel. Wearing vibrant colours can make you more approachable and memorable. It's simple: on a gray, rainy day, spotting someone in a cheerful yellow raincoat can immediately bring a smile to your face. That’s the power of colour—it reaches out and touches others in subtle but impactful ways. Sunny days and seeing women wearing floral dresses  just makes me simile.

Incorporating color into your wardrobe can be as simple or as bold as you want it to be. If you’re new to experimenting with vibrant hues, start small. Add a bright accessory, like a red bag or a turquoise scarf, to your outfit. These pops of color can be just as effective in boosting your mood as a fully colorful outfit.


For those who are more adventurous, embrace color blocking—combine multiple solid colors in one outfit. It's a stylish and easy way to make a statement and express your creativity and confidence. When you walk into a room dressed in a thoughtful combination of colors, you command attention and convey a sense of self-assurance and positivity.

The colours you choose can serve as a form of personal branding. They tell a story about who you are and what you stand for. Bright colors can symbolize your boldness and zest for life, while softer shades might express your calm and reflective side.

Remember, fashion is about personal expression and what makes you feel good. By embracing colour, you’re not just choosing clothes; you’re choosing how you want to experience and impact the world around you.


Sometimes I'm still surprised, even though I've worked in fashion for over 20 year how powerful fashion is. Maybe fashion shouldn't feel this powerful but it is, and it can make you feel better. We have to wear clothes so we may as well wear pieces and colours that we love.

So, I encourage you to wear more colour, every colour has a place and a purpose. Wear what makes you feel vibrant, confident, and happy, and feel how the world brightens up around you.
