COLOURS OF SUMMER
Summer is always associated with more sunlight. Sunlight positively affects women’s hormones and makes it easier to get enough fresh air and exercise. Cheerful lemon yellows or bright, happy pinks naturally reflect the mood of the season. Once you understand colour, it’s relatively easy to create a wardrobe where every item makes you look your best and ties in well with each other. It can be extremely rewarding and once you understand which colours suit you, you can start to add in others and still look great!
Science has proven that dark colours are going to toast you, so light coloured outfits also draw summer support just because they can beat the heat. White is your best bet. That’s because light, which generates heat, is an electromagnetic wave. Unlike sound, light can travel through the colour spectrum. It travels slowly through darker colours, which keeps it near your body for a longer time. So, while all black is a guaranteed sweat-fest, petal pink, stone blue and morning-inspired yellows keep you cooler by reflecting light. If you absolutely cannot give up your dark colours, there are still a few solutions. Black does indeed go with everything, so toss in accents, like heavy bangle bracelets or wide belts. You can also try sheer fabrics, like lace or tulle overlays. Navy keeps things on the dark side, but conjures seafaring and picnics and other summery endeavours. Pair it with a light ecru or white so you don’t overheat.
Light wardrobe colours have a ripple effect, too. You wear them because they reflect your mood and make you feel good. Designers know this and feel the same way. That’s why you’ll always see light colours on the new racks come sunshine time. Look for bright coral, daffodil yellow, gentle violets that blend into pale stone colours and ultra-light greens. Wear these colours head-to-toe for a sophisticated monochromatic style — or accent the bolder tones with low-lights of the paler ones to be totally contemporary.
In other words, the article tries to emphasize on matching up the colour of your choice and the weather outside. If the weather is hot, try and keep the hue of your attire under the “cool” notch i.e., the light colours will help you not only to stay cool in such a bogged up weather, but will also make you feel and present less messy and congested. In other words, dark colours in a hot and humid environment makes the wearer to appear completely botched up with a possibility of seeming to be completely chaotic, unorganized person because psychologically the colours fill up the already full spaces and makes you appear a person “full of themselves” as you may appear a short-tempered, emotionally perturbed person to the beholder. Thus, it becomes important to wear light clothes. But, if you are not able to keep your hands off of bright and dark colours, then balance them out with either lesser amount of accessories or with some additional pair of layers of light-coloured clothing.
