Blue is the favorite color of all people. It’s nature’s color for water and sky, but is rarely found in fruits and vegetables. It can either be calming or cold depending on the shades of blue.

Most blues convey a sense of trust, loyalty, cleanliness, and understanding.  And I always wonder why the color is connected to sadness…..Feeling blue, morning blue, Monday blues L  I don’t find sadness in blue. According to color psychology exposure to the color blue causes the body to create chemicals that are calming.

Rather blue is associated with the fifth chakra, located at the throat and therefore connected to communication. Someone who speaks the truth is “true blue.” J

Now coming to clothing in blue; Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones… it will always stay blue;” as told by Raoul Dufy, French Fauvist Painter.

A dark blue suit is professional business attire next to black. Rather the only color that can compete with the mighty black.  I would say, if you’re going to wear blue, go dark for work and light for parties.

White blooms exude a sophistication that is hard to surpass

White is the colour of perfection, purity, wholeness and completion. According to colour psychology, it is the colour of new beginnings. Even though  White does not stimulate one’s senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive.

What I like the most about white is the way I can mix  and match it with other colours to create a totally different look every time I pick an attire in white. This time went all white with a dash of yellow, magenta, blue and green gently cruising over the white with every breeze that comes by. Yes, it’s adventure in my mind 😉
