The Power and Influence of Color

Famous fashion designers have long known the power of color and its influence on our moods, and each of us has had the experience of feeling great when wearing a certain color.

It turns out that color choices are not accidental, and have a great deal of influence over our mood and behavior.  Most of us have a favorite color and find ourselves wearing clothes in that color more often than others.  The color and tone of our choice in clothing has an overall effect on our state of mind and feelings, and says a lot about our personality.
