Discover your colour: Lend a VIBGYOR touch to your wardrobe

Each colour of the VIBGYOR can play a part in exuding and eliciting emotions psychologically. The spectrum, applied to colour therapy, is all-pervasive in the world of fashion. Here’s a dekko of the effects of the individual Colours, the moods they reflect and how they can be styled

VIOLET: A streak of sophistication 

Whether you step out in a formal suit or a casual jacket, you will reflect a sense of uniqueness with your fashion statement. In the past, the colour was associated with royalty and opulence, and today it is considered ideal for anyone with a creative bent of mind, and with a passion for the arts. Don’t hold back from adding hints of violet with sneakers or a waist belt pouch.

INDIGO: Integrity and sincerity 

Indigo is a tricky one in the rainbow, the rest of which is made up of primary colours. A mix between violet and blue, it is an easy-to-style colour that radiates power and charm. Wear a simple T-shirt or a hoodie, trackpants or funky sneakers, indigo is a ‘one for all, and all for one’ colour.

BLUE & GREEN: Go earthy!

One signifies the oceans and the sky, the other stands for nature. Together, blue and green reflect the colours of Mother Earth, and a sense of serenity and tranquillity. You can choose to beat the winter blues with well-fitted suits, blazers and overcoats in blue. Or opt for a latex blue jacket and pants if you love to experiment! A green bomber jacket or a green semi-formal suit could also make heads turn if you team it right! Just ensure you choose the shades right depending on the occasion.

YELLOW: Not a dirty fellow!

Yellow spells sunshine, happiness and youthfulness. Get set to charm people with a fusion of styles in Indo-Western. Layering up yellow over an off-white or white piece of clothing can add a subtle touch to your attire. Try kurtas with asymmetrical silhouettes in yellow, or team up a jacket in the colour to add a hint of brightness to your look.

ORANGE: A whiff of warmth

Are you a fan of bright colours? Don’t be afraid to embrace orange, a colour of joie de vivre, energy, adventure and warmth. It’s a colour that a lot of designers have played with, and one that can be easily added to the wardrobe with a semi-casual suit or with a tracksuit. Remember not to go overboard with the styling, and keep accessories to the bare minimum.

It’s as much a colour of love and passion, as it is for courage and danger. But rest assured, there’s no danger in experimenting with red in a man’s wardrobe! Go for classic checks in red, teamed up with a solid colour, or add a dash of the red with a simple jacket on a black ensemble, and you’ll win hearts. The key is to keep it simple.
