Part 2, The Power of Color in Your Closet
Now that spring has definitely arrived and here to
stay, I want to be sure you know the impact these brighter
colors have in a business climate.
Yellow is the high fashion spring color
that women can find lots of right now in the department stores
and boutiques. Yellow is color that says
"I want to be noticed today." You can't be
ignored when you a bright shade of yellow, but people will
see you as cheerful as a ray of sunshine. Wear this color
for a high energy day.
Orange communicates a message of "I
am in the mood to play." If you work in an outdoor
industry, are hosting a golf tournament or an event that is
outside or has a sports theme, orange will rev up your energy
if you need to be one of the cheerleaders for the day. Inside
a conservative office environment, people tend to see orange
as loud and irritating.
Pink is a color that makes people look younger
than they actually are (in some cases). "I
am young, energetic and enthusiastic." The brighter
the pink, the more attention you will draw. The softer the
pink, the more reassuring your demeanor. Pastel pink is good
to wear when you know that you need remain calm while you
deal with people who are upset or hostile.
Purple says, "I
am great with other women. I am creative, innovative and unique."
Wearing purple lets people know that you "think outside
Green has so many shades, it can bring to
mind; fresh cut grass, lime green, dark forest green, soft
apple green, just to name a few. The light shades that are
popular right now communicate, "I
am bringing new, fresh ideas to the table." Wear
greens when you are looking to you to deliver a new, inovative
idea, plan or product.
Coral and turquoise (blue/green) are colors
that have the ability to make you look healthier than you
may actually feel that day. If you have a headache or an upset
stomach, the warm and cool shades in coral and turquoise,
will neutralize the imbalance that can show in your skin tone.
If you want to work and be productive, but don't want to draw
attention to the fact that you are recovering from a cold
or allergies, either one of these 2 hues will do the trick
when you have been under the weather.
The Power of Color programs are a great way to begin the
process of making people aware of what they wear in the workplace
without having people feel they have been assulted by the
fashion police. Call me at 940-321-2594 so we can discuss
the image of your employees and how to best work together
to update their business image and improve their appearance
so that they represent the hard-earned brand of your company.
