Wear Your Power Colors


After several posts I've done over the year about color (I Love Color In The Springtime / Pop! / Colors)   I wanted to talk a bit about POWER color! 

Earlier last year, I admitted that wearing vibrant colors had never been quite second nature.  Until I traveled to the tropics (Asia specifically) wear color was everywhere and I couldn't help participating.  

And even though I'd known that power colors existed (a color that identifies and magnifies one's personality or signature essence) 
I just always thought mine was black.  

It's not.  

Just because you feel most comfortable in a particular color doesn't necessarily mean it's your power color.  


Usually a power color takes guts to wear.  It takes you a bit out of your comfort zone... 
because it highlights your power zone!



Obviously, I don't wear puce or fuchsia a lot.  But when I do, I feel different and my environment feels different as well.  People react differently.  In a positive way.  And while I believe that every single one of us looks fabulous in many different colors, we all have just a few power colors.  

blazer: vintage / top: Tiny Closet Collection / denim: United Colors of Bennetton / heels: Aldo 

 Anyway, for the past few days, I've been feeling slightly deflated so today I wanted to get back the vibrance and wear a color that could help me do just that.  
Just some food for thought :)  

What's your power color??

Happy Monday!

  1. That's a great color on you. Red is my power color. I automatically feel super confident in it, especially in a dress.

  4. I don't know if it's my power color but I am obsessed with pink and wear it varying shades as often as possible! LOL. In fact though--my power color might be red: it looks really great against my skin, I always get compliments when wearing it, yet I feel slightly out of that comfort zone you mentioned. hmmmm... :: cue reflection/journaling moment ::

    Oh--that blazer? Yeeeesssssss. Love love love (obvi).

  5. I don't have any idea what's my power color... I really feel good in some colors, because of what they represent to me, but does it make those my power colors? I love your blazer and tee, both the shape and the blazer's color :)
    The last picture is beautiful, I love the composition and light and it makes me want to have that for breakfast :)
