What Colors Say About You

fall-fashion-color-wheel1-e1345481047605Are there certain colors that you simply don’t wear? Or, are you willing to try any shade as long as you feel in the mood for it?

I may be coloristically (is that a word?) schizo: black… COLOR-!… black… COLOR-! Much of it depends on my outlook for the day, not that bright means I’m happy, or dark means I’m sad. No, no, no—much too pedestrian of an approach.

I’ve considered this a bunch, can you tell? Maybe black suggests that I’m focused on a project, and color means it’s time for fun. Or 775467ea08bfe9b94947c677a162fc0bblack is upscale and urban, while bright bursts indicate resort-like reveries and relaxation.

Or does it?

How do you choose your colors? Are they based on weather and season, mood and mindset, or full-out fashion fun?

No wonder I bought those compromise plaid tights today….
