what the colors you wear says about you

We all have a favorite color that we love to wear.  But did you know that the color of your sexy dress also says a lot about your personality, mood, and emotions? You may not be entirely aware of the symbolic meanings associated with different colors, however, according to experts, at the subconscious level, there is a reason why particular colors draw you. 

Let’s take a look at what message your dress color is sending to the world.

Blue says you are loyal and confident.

One of the most popular colors, blue is a color that represents loyalty, peace, confidence, and success. It is a soothing color that makes people around you feel comfortable. Research has found that this color causes the human body to produce certain chemicals that have calming properties.

Navy blue is the go-to color for a job interview. It portrays a sense of being ‘in control’ and is considered to be one of the best colors to wear to corporate and training events. In fact, blue is the right color to wear to work for these exact reasons.

Consider wearing a sexy blue dress on a new date to calm both yourself and your partner. The color combined with a more sensual tighter fit creates a contrast that will easily tease, but equally provide confidence in your loyalty to him.

Red displays your bold and sex-oriented tendencies.

When you think of red, you most likely link it to love, romance, and passion. If you love wearing red dresses, it indicates that you are someone who is energetic, strong-willed, passionate, a touch aggressive, and outspoken. You enjoy living life to the fullest and indulge in a bit of risk-taking at times.

New or strange things do not scare you quickly, as you are focused on moving forward. You wear red because you love attention. Red brings you into the spotlight and imparts confidence as well as sensuality to all you meet. The color red is known to be an arousing color as well, so bring out that little sexy red number if you want to ooze sex appeal and boldness.

The sunshine color of yellow brings a happy, fun, and positive mood that has the power to lift everyone around you instantly. If you wear yellow often you are vivacious, always laughing, and undeniably feminine. Wearing a yellow dress suggests that you are an active, creative, and exciting woman. This color encourages intelligence, so you plan to wear it on work-heavy days when you need that extra boost of inspiration and pump.

Yellow improves concentration which is the reason we see this color used on legal notepads and highlighters. However, remember not to overdo it as dressing in an all-yellow ensemble may work against you – cut the effect with a contrasting belt or shoes.

Green dress wearers live an active social life, live in a good neighborhood, and are mindful of their social reputation and finances. Green is also the color that connected to life and nature, which means that you are probably an environment-conscious person and appreciate greenery. You are charismatic and have an aura of mystery at the same time.

Who doesn’t love wearing black? One of the most flattering, classy, and versatile colors, black is well-loved in women’s apparel for its ability to give your body the illusion of being slimmer. The color black symbolizes many things: power, elegance, luxury, and authority being a few.

When worn at work, black exudes leadership, while a sexy little black dress is the ideal stylish look when you are on a date. However, too much of black in your outfit may make you seem unapproachable, cold, or harsh, so break up the look with accessories or different textures.

Traditionally the color of royalty, purple stands for sophistication, wealth, and luxury. In the modern day, this color also indicates a type of personality that is creative, charming, insightful and has a love for the arts.

Since purple is a blend of red and blue, people who are attracted to this color have a mixed, unpredictable personality that is calming and temperamental at the same time. Not everyone loves or can pull off this shade, so wearing a purple or violet dress also says that you are confident about your taste and yourself.
