Denim shades, muted patterns with faint blue stripes or dots, French script, and navy blue are especially in this season.
How Blue Impacts Your Mood
The Positive Associations:
Many people believe that certain colors evoke different moods, feelings, and behaviors. Blue is often thought to be a positive color related to words like calming, peaceful, and tranquil. Perhaps this is because blue is so common in peaceful nature settings, like a big blue sky, a tropical ocean, or the all-American imagery of bluebells blowing in the breeze. A fun fact is that blue is most common favorite color overall, and is the most common favorite color for men.
The Not as Positive Associations:
This serene effect is, of course, the opposite of what we think of as “the blues.” When someone is sad, we ask them if they’re “feeling blue.” Some people say “getting the blues” refers to the extreme calm feelings associated with the color blue. Others say it refers to Zeus in Greek mythology, who when sad, would make it rain. Still, other people claim it refers to “blue devils” or “low spirits.”
The True Blue Truth:
One thing is for sure: most people like the color blue itself and receive soothing effects from it, despite its folklore. Upon seeing the color blue, it’s has been proven to: lower blood pressure, bring feelings of calmness and serenity, and increase productivity at school and work.
