When you want to attract someone make sure your shirt or tie has an element of red in it. Red sends off signals saying you are exciting, up beat and confident. Be warned though, too much red when looking for promotion or meeting prospective in-laws and you could come across as being domineering, bossy and threatening.
If you do want to impress be sure to do it in blue. A blue shirt tells us you are peaceful, trustworthy and thoughtful. It’s ideal to wear when you are giving a presentation. What's your best blue?
Whiter than White
Pure, clean and fresh that’s what a white shirt says about you, futuristic and optimistic. Works well as a strong contrast against dark shades such as with a navy or charcoal suit to give an aura of authority. Be careful though, unless you have time for personal grooming white is not the colour for you as it shows up every little mark. Depending on your skin tone a very bright white shirt may also not be best for you.
Bold in Black
Black portrays a mysterious and sophisticated image which is probably why so many people wear it. Black gives a bold impact and keeps people at a distance as it gives the wearer the impression of being aloof. People won’t open up to you in black, so don’t wear it if you work with children or the elderly. Also if you your colouring is light, muted or warm it won't be your best.
Lovely in Lilac
Lilac, a great colour for business people to wear as it projects confidence and individuality. Managers should wear it when they want to be seen as diplomatic, unselfish or creative. Lights, warms and cools a light periwinkle will suit you and look great.
Feeling down? Choose a shirt with yellow in it or a bold tie in the colour, it’ll be sure to cheer you up on the dreariest of days. It gives the impression of being impulsive, so perhaps not best to be seen in if asking the bank manager for a loan as he might think you are a high risk.
