What is your favourite colour? Whenever people ask me this question, my instant answer is always green, not red. To be honest, I do like green very much but I actually don’t mind almost all colours. Hmm, Maybe less so to the kind of lilac-y, pinkish colour brides normally pick for their bridesmaids. Apparently, from what I heard, traditionally people think nobody look good in this colour and bridesmaids are meant to make brides looking fab. It seems people more and less have existing impression about colours…
I was wearing a red jumpsuit on Tuesday in Notting Hill. Of course I “forced” few strangers I found in the street to take photos for me as my good-life photographer is getting Mushrooms in Amsterdam this week. As soon as I posted the first photo on my Instagram, lots of comments like hot, sexy or foxy came in. Really?! I was wearing a baggy jumpsuit, sneakers with bare face. Ok, some part of boobs showing in this outfit, but my 12 yrs size boobies!! This really got me thinking about the colour of my jumpsuit, red. The power of red. And how strongly the colour of our outfits represent our image.
Red is the colour of fresh blood and fire. Traditionally and psychologically, It represents danger, power, passions, love and etc. It can be seen as an aggressive approach in terms of fashion choice because of the attention one might get while wearing red. And the person who is in red is normally associated with people with loads of self-confidence but can be intimidating. Basically, at the positive side, red has all things you need for sexiness.
There are different meanings for different colours. I am just going to very briefly mention about the meanings of few main fashion colours in SS2017, Pink, Yellow, Green and Bright Blue.
Pink is sending romantic, feminin, innocent images. Over used of pink can lead to immature and girlish.
Yellow is the colour of sunshine. It represents an image of optimism, energy and etc. It is for people who is not afraid to stand away from the crowd. But too bright yellow might mean instability.
Green is the colour of natural. In contrary to red and yellow, it has the image of safety and stability. But for fashion point of view, it can be one of the hardest colours to pull off depending on which shade of green.
Blue is said to be the most popular colour. It represents peace and calmness. Wearing blue can lead you to an image of loyal. Everything sounds perfect with this colour. But you know what people say, too safe can be boring.
So now, the next question, what is the image you would like to deliver this Spring Summer? 🙂
