The power of color in fashion and in our mood is undeniable. Color has the power of persuasion and it can instantly change your mood. And this is not us creating another fad; it’s scientifically proven that color indeed helps boosting your mood. It is a powerful communication tool and can dramatically affect feelings and emotions.
Every vintage decade has its own characteristic color. Mixed vintage prints remind us of the groovy 60’s, wild and loud combinations lead us to 70’s fashion and brash colors take us back to the extravagant 80’s. Vintage hues and print amalgamations are apparent in contemporary designs. A sneak peek on Gucci’s new collection will take you back to 80’s vintage fashion.

Here are our styling tips how to wear color everyday:
First and foremost, organize your wardrobe and color code it.
All black together, all reds together etc. Why? Dressing up in the mornings will definitely become a foreplay and a great start of your day. Forget formal black and classic navy. You can look formal in a great wrap dress plus feminine. And, if you work in a male-dominated environment, then add a long chunky cardigan.
Another trick to embrace colour is to buy a vibrant winter coat. The myth that your coat needs to be the same hue as your outfit, well, is totally old fashioned and outdated. Go for red, blue and even yellow. These colours exude confidence and have the happy go lucky attitude. They match almost every colour and your mood will definitely will be positive.
Additionally, in our books everybody wants to have a happy-go-lucky attitude. It totally brightens up your day.
