I recently wrote a post about my 5 ways to instantly feel happier (read it here), and in it I mention the science of color. Believe it or not, color has a huge subconscious impact on our emotions, from the things we surround ourselves with (like paint color or flowers), even to the clothes we put on in the morning. The right colors can brighten your mood, improve concentration and performance, and even attract your crush!
Spring is finally here, so it got me thinking about how to incorporate the cheeriness of this new season into my wardrobe. The science behind yellow seems completely natural – it’s associated with sunshine, joy, and new beginnings… the perfect color to punch up a Spring outfit. This yellow eyelet kate spade new york dress just screams happiness and sunshine. Many women often feel intimidated by wearing a bold color like yellow, but this season couldn’t be a better time to try it out. It’s flattering on many different skin tones, and the fact that it’s scientifically proven to cheer you up is a major bonus.
To avoid looking like a walking banana, I would break up your yellow with complimentary accessories and layering pieces. I went for a fringed poncho, lace up heels, a straw bag and touches of gold to add some variety to my look. I wore this to wine country last week, and I definitely felt like it lifted my mood! Or, it could’ve been the wine 😉
