The Psychology of Fashion Blog™ founder Shakaila Forbes-Bell was published in Marie Claire UK and listed the four hues that you need to add to your wardrobe according to colour psychology!
Think about it: how long does it take you to plan your outfit for a job interview or an important business meeting? Half an hour? An hour? Two? The point is, you probably spend as long planning what to wear as the actual meeting itself.

Because like it or not, you’ll often be judged by what you wear. Shakaila Forbes-Bell, Founder & Editor-In-Chief The Psychology of Fashion, explains it takes a fraction of a second to form an impression: 0.1 seconds to be exact.
‘You can’t possibly reel off your likes, your dislikes, your hopes and dreams in 0.1 seconds – so what happens? Your clothes speak for you. Clothing style serves as an implicit perceptual cue, influential in the execution of a wealth of social transactions,’ she says.

And while style is important, it all comes down to one thing: which colour you wear. Shakaila says, ‘colour of our clothes have a significant impact in eliciting certain psychosocial behaviours’.
With that in mind, she shares the colours you can wear to make sure that your first impression is the right one.
