What color can you wear to compel the opposite sex to approach you?
According to Color Consultant Leatrice Eiseman, Director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of Colors For Your Every Mood, women are attracted to men wearing the color blue.
And why wouldn’t we be? According to Eiseman, guys who frequently wear blue are “stable, faithful, constant and always there.” The blue guy is a fantastic candidate for a long-term relationship — someone who’s dependable, momogomous and can match his own clothes.
And what about the ladies? Eiseman says women should wear a pink- peach to make themselves most approachable.
The color is “very flattering to most skin tones, it gives you healthy glow,” and according to Eiseman, projects “a little vulnerability which brings out something protective in men.”
Want to wear a color that weeds out guys who can’t handle strong women? Try a deep red, burgundy or plum. Men who aren’t attracted to strong women will steer clear.
Of all the colors, red is the most sensual.
But, wear red with caution. “Red is the color of sex and power,” says Eiseman. Red adds an element of excitement and attracts two types of men – men interested in sex, and men attracted to powerful women. Sure, you’ll probably have to fend off a lot of freaks, but you could also end up attracting a guy that isn’t threatened by the fact that you make a bigger salary.
Concerned your wardrobe is driving people away? Stay away from what Eiseman calls “squished caterpillar yellow-green” which is said to repel both sexes equally.
A Note From Sarah:
Color is a part of your body language, and knowing what you’re doing, wearing, saying – how you move – and how it’s AFFECTING a man are incredible skills to know.
Amazingly enough – we’re often not aware of how color affects US!
What do the colors in this article do for YOU when you’re wearing them? AND – if wearing a certain color makes you feel more confident and sexy – would that overcome the fact that that color might not be attractive to men? (For instance – green.)
I know many, many women who’ve had their “colors” done professionally – and although I can see the amazing result – I wonder how a man responds to it as opposed to how I respond to it.
I know that, for instance, wearing burgundy and cranberry makes me feel great and strong and powerful, and wearing pink makes me feel soft and washed out and quiet.
Does this mean that my view of myself is different from what a man sees?
This article got me thinking – I’m going to experiment with colors and see what happens out there in the world, inside my head and heart and with my man. I’ve always picked my “favorite” colors. And now I’d like to know exactly “why” I’ve picked those, and how wearing them changes things out there in the world.
