How to Color Coordinate Your Outfit for a Better Mood

Let’s face it — Monday mornings are a drag. The weekend is done. The work week has begun. And I rarely feel like getting dressed in my very best. This past Monday I decided to switch it up.

The psychology behind color states that each hue holds a different meaning relating to a specific emotion. Once you know the basics behind the shades, you’ll understand why you may want to swap out unknowing black for peaceful lavender on a stormy day. Let’s have a look at 5 colors to see how you can wear them for a better mood.

Lavender says serenity. A calming color of elegance and beauty, it’s what to wear when you’re feeling overwhelmed. For an extra pop, add a touch of turquoise which is another color that will cool you down.
