Color Psychology

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I think I have an obsession with grey. Just putting it out there. I don’t know if it’s the grey weather, me getting older or what, but lately I’ve found that I’ve been particularly drawn to grey. According to color psychology (if such a thing can be true), grey is the color of compromise, it’s detached, neutral, impartial and indecisive – the fence-sitter. It’s interesting to reflect on the meaning of this color. The one word that does stick out in this color analysis is “neutral”, I often feel in life that I’m the “neutral” person, whether that directly reflects in what colors I wear, I doubt it but it’s an interesting exercise to figure out why I’ve been drawn to this color lately.

I’ve noticed over the past couple of months, I’ve been shying away from bright colors and prints for my every day clothes but have opted for that color scheme when working out. Maybe it’s a workout motivator to wear bright and fun colors and prints? Either way, I find it fascinating to see how my own personal style is evolving. Anything you’ve noticed in your way of dressing these past couple of months?
