Could you imagine what the world would be like if we had no color? How do you think it would make you feel? Colors hold a lot of power and we don’t even realize it. Bright colors can make us feel happy, dark colors can make us feel cozy, and wearing your favorite colors make us feel confident! Color is important to our eyes and how we perceive the world around us, so much so, that the colors we choose to wear can not only impact our emotions, but the emotions of those around us. That’s right – you can use colors to impact and attract different types of people.
Color Psychology has been ingrained in our society for years. It's used in a lot of occasions, holidays and seasons.
