Hate Mondays? See How Your Dress Colours Affect You.

I remember how I used to dread Mondays. The very thought of waking up to the sound of blaring alarm clocks was a major turnoff. Reluctantly dragging my feet to work, my eyes barely open and my body helplessly begging for just another hour (or two!) of rest and sleep.

Those were the days.

These days, I find myself looking forward to waking up each day. I set realistic goals that I know I can accomplish by the end of the day and I feel great about myself. Having a positive mindset really helps - Michael Phelps is right. This is perhaps one of my all time favourite quotes from the swimming legend.

“So many people along the way, whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you it can’t be done. But all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach.” - Michael Phelps

You may find it hard to believe, but part of my morning ritual is to put something on that I'd really feel comfortable with. How you dress is so important ladies - from the dress style to the cut and even the colour! Yes - colour does affect our mood and behaviour so choose wisely. Need to inspire trust and stability? Wear blue. Need a creativity boost? Try orange.

This week I've rounded up some of our best selling dresses and how their colours may affect you. Give these gorgeous frocks a go and enjoy the difference that they make in your life!


Touted as the colour with a calming effect, green is easy on the eyes and is also believed to relieve stress. Perfect for when you know you have a long day ahead of you and need to stay calm and collected as you soldier on.



Going for an interview, maybe? Try blue. There's a reason why the big guns like Facebook, Twitter and Intel (to name a few) have an element of blue in their logos - it's the colour of trust and loyalty. This is my very little secret to every interview I've ever attended and I'm happy to report that it has never failed me. It could very well just be a coincidence but it never hurts to try. ;)



Depending on how you perceive yellow, the colour can most definitely work to your advantage. For some, yellow is a happy and cheerful colour that brings about positive and energetic vibes. However, since yellow is the most attention-grabbing colour, too much of it may evoke some levels of anger and frustration. If you find that this applies to you, choose a dress featuring relaxed, casual prints or a more muted shade of yellow.



Black can also be a very tricky colour. Again, depending on individual, black can make you feel powerful and confident apart from the fact that it also makes you look slimmer. In the fashion industry, black is often seen on big brands such as Coach and The Iconic as the colour is synonymous to class and elegance.


So there you have it - the psychology behind colours. Use this information to your advantage and choose the right colours to give you the strength, motivation and inspiration that you need.

Till next time, stay retro! 💛
