Did you know that people judge each other based on the colour that they are wearing? This may seem superficial, but it is true – and different colours say different things.
For instance, orange may be one of your favourite colours, but it seems that most people dislike it when others wear orange.
If you want to know more about the perception of colour, we are here to help. Here are some of the most loved (and hated) colours that people choose to wear.
Orange may be a beautiful colour, but it seems that it is very unpopular as an outfit choice. Research found that only 2% of women would wear orange on a first date (and 6% of men), making it the least popular first-date colour.
Blue is a very popular colour, especially for men! Research found that 48% of women like it when a man wears blue, and men also really liked it when women wore blue.
If you want to start wearing blue but you’re not sure what shade, you can use a colour wheel to find the right shade for you. You can also buy a beautiful affordable blue maxi dress from AX Paris; check out this blue maxi dress at AX Paris.
It seems that pink has a lot of negative connotations: only 5% of people surveyed thought intelligent people wear pink, which is very interesting! This could be to do with negative gender stereotyping, which definitely isn’t a good thing, but hopefully attitudes towards this colour will change in the future.
Black is a very popular colour. It is flattering, it is perfect for both work and going out, and it works well with most other colours. So you probably won’t be too surprised to learn that people like it when other people wear black! The survey found that most people think black clothes indicate intelligence, confidence and sexiness, so it is definitely a very attractive colour to wear. It also ranked highly as a trustworthy, reassuring colour.
Red is seen as the colour of passion, but it is also seen as an aggressive colour – so the results for this colour were mixed. Some people found it to be sexy and attractive, while others found the colour to be arrogant and big-headed.
