They say, "History favors the bold." While there are a variety of ways to showcase your boldness, my favorite ways to express boldness is through advocacy, action, and obviously my colorful style. *lowers shades and winks*
This week, I am strutting in a hot pink power suit. Hot pink symbolizes power, confidence, and abundance. If you don’t know by now, I love wearing bold colors because it speaks to my vibrant and radiant personality.
I know people often shy away from wearing bold colors because of the “attention" it may bring. However, we need to destigmatize the word attention and re-establish it as presence. Sporting brighter colors is a simple way to establish your presence . Moreover, research shows that people associate color with excitement and energy.
Implementing brighter colors into your wardrobe can easily be done in two ways. 1)A small pop of color; this includes accessories like earrings, bracelets, and hair pins or you can implement color into your beauty/makeup routine with lipsticks, eyeshadows or nail polish.
2) A statement piece; this includes bright colored articles of clothing like jackets, pants, and dresses.
Whether you choose to sport your bold colors as an accessory or as a statement, your decision should be based in what makes you feel confident. My rule of thumb is: wear what makes you feel the most confident.
So, how do you implement bold colors into your wardrobe a) as an accessory b) as a statement c) a lil bit a both.
