personal branding colours… how to stand out at this year’s work christmas party
It’s that time of year. You’ve received your invitation to your work Christmas party. You’re all excited… but have you given any thought to what colour are you going to wear?
How do you want to feel? And just as important how do you want others to interact with you? Do you want to be the life and soul of the party, or perhaps emphasise your femininity. So no matter how you are feeling there’s a colour for you.
It’s not hard to notice the classic party dress is black, made iconic from Chanel’s LBD. For those whose personalities truly resonates with black they look sophisticated, elegant and glamorous.
For the rest of us, it can make us look strained and tired, usually compensated with wearing extra make-up. It enables you to create a protective barrier from others, blending into the crowd. So if you’re after a change, why not try something different…
Yellow – Shows you’re up for having fun, playful, expressing happiness.
Red – If you want all eyes on you, then wear this attention grabbing colour.
Turquoise – Shows you are approachable and open to conversation.
Purple – Creating an impact.
Pink – To emphasise your femininity.
Dark Green – Gives you reassurance and creates harmony and balance.
Dark Blue – Show you are trusting and wanting to be taken seriously.
There are many different tones of each colour so make sure you pick the one that resonates with your personality type, ensuring the positive psychological characteristics are expressed.
Mix it up a bit, have fun colour blocking and wearing your favourite combination of colours. Just be careful, otherwise you could end up looking like Santa’s favourite elf!
Regardless of what colours you chose to wear:
Colour can make you stand out from the crowd
Colour can make you memorable
Colour has an effect on you and how other respond to you
