In the workplace, the way you look has a huge impact in your own confidence as well as the way others view you — especially when it comes to wearing colours. According to Joy in Insego, “the colour you wear will speak of your personality, your preference, how you feel and how you will be perceived by those around you.”

It has a huge impact specifically in women. Here are the roundups:

Neutral colours are safe and those wearing it are considered “dull and lacking in self confidence.”

Tangerine is an aggressive colour and associated with “strong emotions and high energy.” Those who wear it are thought to be creative, fun and playful.

Plum is a winner in the workplace since it makes those who wear it feel confident, attractive, calm and relaxed, yet the warm colour doesn’t scream for too much attention.

Teal exudes “confidence and feminine energy.” It has a calming effect that doesn’t intimidate others and is associated with creativity and self-expression.
