Loving yourself by designing your wardrobe colors and patterns to match your unique personality.
Love. It’s assumed that if you don’t love anyone else, at least you love yourself. That couldn’t be more untrue. BUT, I love me some me! LOL OK. Was that a vain way to start this post or what?
Seriously though, loving yourself is more than just making sure you take care of your basic needs and wants. It’s got a lot to do with how you present yourself to the world.
How you dress each day sends a message to the world about who you are. Are you loving yourself by being true to your unique personality? True to what you really like? Fashion and beauty that is. (Hey, this is a beauty blog. Not some self help resource ha!)
What I mean is, are you afraid to rock a flaming red lip or a pair of hot pink pants for fear of what others may think of you? Well, I say forget what everybody else likes. What do you like? What does your fashion color palette say about your personality?
Being that February is deemed, the “month of love,” why not kick it off loving yourself by choosing to wear what is reflective of your own unique personality?
Maybe you’re not exactly sure what it is that you want your clothes to say about who you are. Here are some guidelines based on Color Psychology:
Yellow – You like order and can be a little over-analytical. You also have a cheerful disposition.
Blue – You like peace and strive to be friendly with others. Your’e reliable and sensitive.
Green – You are down to earth and well balanced but you can be needy at times.
Red – You’re daring and bold.
Purple – You’re sensitive, compassionate, understanding and supportive.
Black, Brown and Grey – You’re a bit mysterious but mostly independent and you thrive on power.
White – You are a sophisticated lady and feel empowered to make a statement. You’re probably also a neat-nick – pure as the driven snow.
Neutrals – You have a simple outlook on life. You may be a minimalist and/or you’re generally low maintenance.
Bold colors – In general, you’re easily adaptable and very outgoing and social.
Colors aren’t the only ways you can incorporate your personality into your wardrobe. Patterns also make a statement. Here are some ideas:
Bows, Ruffles and Fringes – You’re a romantic at heart
Bohemian Patterns – You are free-spirited, whimsical, and romantic ❤
Bright, quirky patterns (ie, zig zag, floral and bold prints)- You may be eccentric and a bit of a risk taker
I am a lover of neturals and earthtones. I also prefer solid colors. That’s where my personality gravitates. While I do add a pop of color to my wardrobe from time to time, for the most part I keep it neutral. It may seem boring to some but it’s what I like and reflects who I am – low maintenance, independent, down to earth and reliable.
How about you? What colors and patterns match your personality?
