What Do Your Colours Say About You? Plus Underwear Give-away!
In the movie 10 Things I hate about you, Bianca says “you don’t buy black lingerie unless you want someone to see it.” I would disagree – sexy black lingerie can be worn just because it makes you feel sexy. The colour conveys elegance and sensuality, especially in lingerie. It is also commonly known as a flattering colour, which can be a confidence booster in the bedroom.
Representing purity and innocence, this angelic colour is a safe choice, and shows that you are more conservative. White is also a light, refreshing shade, and can help energize you if you’re feeling stressed or cluttered. Though wearing white will make you seem pure and wholesome, how fun would it be to show your partner that that’s just not the case?
Red is all about sexiness, passion, and love. Seeing the colour influences our behavior, and people who wear red are perceived as dominant. Wearing red can make you feel confidant and grounded, since the colour is associated with the base, or root, chakra in Hinduism. Hindus believe that the colour red helps ground and focus your energies, so empower yourself by wearing this strong and sexy colour.
By wearing blue, you are seen as being honest, truthful and calming. And since the colour is the most popular choice of favourite colour for men, it can’t hurt to choose your favourite shade of blue. Blue is linked to the throat chakra, representing open communication, and according to astrology, the water signs – Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces – are attracted to the colour.
Wearing floral prints can be festive, fun, and adventurous. Floral is everywhere from ultra-feminine lace to bright graphic prints for both him and her. Fresh colours, like bright green and orange underwear, can make you feel energetic – and feel better about wearing the same conservative colours on the outside.
This spring and summer, break out the colour! Wearing candy colours like light blue and pink projects confidence, character and playfulness. The bright candy tones of fuchsia, teal, chocolate, purple, turquoise, yellow, aqua, sapphire, blush, coral, and mint green are everywhere for the upcoming season.
