It is easy to get confused by color associations when you hear an isolated fact or what seems like the same meaning for more than one color. The color of love is a good example of an idea that has more than one color association. It is the subtle differences in meaning that determine the best color to communicate an idea
A reader wrote to me recently saying that he had heard that green is the color of love and was wondering if women find men that wear green more attractive. Green does have an association with love but not in the way he was thinking.
Green is the color of healing, nature, balance, and good health, and when we associate green with love, it is on a global level. Green speaks to our desire to foster understanding and acceptance between people and to see the potential value and goodness of each person. Green does not represent the color of love on the level of passion between two people.
Throughout history, red has been the color of passion, romance, and sexual energy. Red lips and blushed cheeks stimulate arousal. A red dress attracts attention and captures the imagination. Driving a red sports car is often considered a sex symbol. Red roses are given as a symbol of love.
Rich and predominately warm hues are best for creating a romantic or sensuous mood. Think of luxurious reds, purples, or oranges complemented by just a touch of blue, green or even black. Quite often, these are the colors used in restaurants that are sought out for romantic, intimate dinners.
If you’re wondering what colors to wear to seem most attractive, I would suggest wearing any color the makes you look and feel great. If bright red looks great on you, then, by all means, wear it. If your best color is blue or green or brown, then wear that color.
Whatever color you choose should make you feel absolutely fabulous. This is sure to boost your confidence in any situation, and having confidence in yourself will attract someone far more effectively than wearing any particular color.
