Color affects your mood. Red is the color of passion, blue promotes a sense of calm, green makes you feel refreshed, yellow lifts your mood and makes you feel happy, and orange can bring out your creativity. For more on this topic, check out “How Color Affects Our Mood” in the Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/27/how-color-affects-our-moo_n_1114790.html. Indeed, research shows the first aspect of a product a consumer responds to is color. I’m sure you’ve had the experience of walking into a store and having an article of clothing jump off the rack. You might have even heard yourself utter, “I love this.” More than likely, you were responding to the color. So I encourage you this season to think about the colors in this new palate that bring about that response in you. Take a copy of this color palate with you as you shop and choose clothing that brings you equilibrium.
