New research done in the UK presented in the HONOR 20 Color Report found that red is a colour that communicates passion, excitement and demands attention. Thus, wearing it when asking for a pay rise may make you appear passionate and capable.
However, red isn’t the only power colour you should incorporate into your wardrobe. In the report, Color Expert Jules Standish, wrote:
"First impressions are important, and what better way to broadcast to the world who you are than through fashion. Blue clothing and accessories help you project an image of trust, diplomacy and reliability - which is perfect for job interviews.”
“Wearing black for a first date projects mystery, and ensures you keep your emotions in check with the intention of revealing more about your true nature at a later stage of the relationship.”
“In comparison, wearing red on a first date projects passion and excitement, while demanding attention."
S, if you’re going for a job interview, date or asking for a pay rise, ensure you’re wearing one of the power colours, or a combination of them.
