Ok, so I love a bit of colour, and yes I do recommend wearing colour to make you feel more alive, more confident and more assertive. But can you lure the type of partner you want by wearing certain colours? What colours should we be wearing to compel the opposite sex to approach us?
According to Colour Psychologists women are attracted to men wearing the colour blue, and why wouldn’t we be? Guys who frequently wear blue are considered “stable, faithful, constant and always there. The blue guy is a fantastic candidate for a long-term relationship — someone who’s dependable, monogamous and can match his own clothes!
And what about the ladies? Women should wear feminine pink- peach tones to make themselves most approachable to the opposite sex. Why – the colour is very flattering to most skin tones, it gives you healthy glow, and it also projects a little vulnerability which brings out something protective in men. I know we don’t all need to be rescued and I’m not writing a Disney story but come on ladies we all like a bit of looking after don’t we? I like a man to be a man, yes a bit chivalrous and yes I definitely want someone who is bigger than me.
What about if you want to wear a colour that weeds out guys who can’t handle strong women? Try a deep red, burgundy or plum. Men who aren’t attracted to strong women will steer clear of ladies wearing these bold colours. If you love wearing reds like me, chances are you will attract strong character men – I have to say this is typically true in my opinion.
Of all the colours, red is the most sensual.
But, wear red with caution. “Red is the colour of sex and power,” it adds an element of excitement and attracts two types of men – men interested in sex, and men attracted to strong women. Sure, you’ll probably have to fend off a lot of freaks, but you could also end up attracting a guy that isn’t threatened by the fact that you make a bigger salary or are going to challenge them in more ways than one.
Concerned your wardrobe is driving potential partners away? Stay away from yellows & green which is said to repel both sexes equally. I have to agree on this fact, if Christian Grey had been wearing a canary yellow shirt & tie I don’t think it would have had the same effect.
Colour is a part of your body language, and knowing what you’re doing, wearing, saying – how you move – and how it’s AFFECTING the opposite sex is a powerful skill to know.
Amazingly enough – we’re often not aware of how colour affects us!
What do the colours I mention do for YOU when you’re wearing them? AND – if wearing a certain colour makes you feel more confident and sexy – would that overcome the fact that that colour might not be attractive to men? (For instance – green.)
Colour Analysis is incredibly popular for both men & women, and although everyone can see the amazing results – I wonder how the opposite sex would respond to your chosen colours. If you tend to wear soft pastel shades would suddenly wearing brazen red underwear or a sexy dress make your man suddenly leap on you in a fit of passion?
I know that, for instance, wearing red, burgundy and all the berry shades makes me feel great, strong and powerful, and wearing pink makes me feel soft and washed out and quiet.
Does this mean that my view of myself is different from what a man sees?
This article has got me thinking – I’m going to experiment with my clients and their colours and ask them to let me know what happens. Will there lives change, will they find a partner, and will they get that promotion – who knows. But I’m keen to find out.
