HERE ARE SOME OTHER COLORS THAT “SPEAK” JUST AS LOUD
BLUE–GREEN: is a good business color to wear, it suggests high self esteem and confidence, yet is still friendly and approachable. (Try wearing a necktie in this color).
GREY: makes you appear neutral, this can let your personality shine through.
ORANGE: it has much of the excitement and energy of red, without the serious edge red carries. Orange is the color of fun and energetic days. It may not be the best choice for a serious meeting, but it’s a great color to wear when meeting new people. It gives off a sociable, inviting vibe. It’s a very uplifting color.
YELLOW: it’s the color of happiness. Studies show that being around yellow promotes the release of serotonin (the feel good hormone) in the brain and may even help speed up our metabolism. Just be careful of the shade – you may want to stick with a pastel or golden yellow. Very bright yellow, like the sun, brings intense energy. (Think street signs and the lines in the road.) Studies show babies cry more and people fight more in bright yellow rooms. If you’re going to use it, use it in moderation.
PURPLE: it’s the color of royalty, wealth and wisdom. Purple actually helps stimulate the brain and is associated with mystery and authority.
