Happy New Year! The holiday season has officially ended and now it’s time to ramp up the fashion. I know we’re all still making our New Year’s resolutions, so here’s one to add to the list – NO MORE BLACK (outfits, of course…lol). Yes, you heard me right. We have to break out of the mundane of our dreary all black wardrobes and add a pop of color. That’s why this week’s topic is entitled, “Orange is the New Black.”
I don’t know about you, but my fall and winter wardrobe used to consist of only black and brown. Black pants, black skirts and black shoes. How boring is that?!? Research has proven that wearing bright colors positively impacts your mood. According to the Science of People, “Orange is a color of stimulation and enthusiasm. Orange is a nice mix of red’s passion and yellow’s joy. Research has found that orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an energizing effect, and stimulates brain activity.”
If you’re still nervous about easing into color, check out my top three reasons why ‘Orange is the New Black.’ Comment below with your thoughts on spicing up your wardrobe with a bit of color.
- Variety: Orange comes in a variety of shades from bright coral to spicy pumpkin
- Adaptability: Orange complements virtually every skin tone
- Versatility: Orange blends well with other color pallets, making it easy to add as an accent color or main statement piece
