亮色使人开心 红配绿也可以很美

Don’t be scared to clash — scientists have found brighter clothes make you happier!

Many of us spend our lives in black, brown, navy, white and grey, but by choosing safe shades instead of a brighter wardrobe, we could be missing out on the health benefits implicit in color.


Jules Standish, author of How Not To Wear Black, is a style and color consultant for women afraid of standing out, and she believes that changing your shopping habits can boost your well-being and self-esteem. ‘Research shows that colors can have a psychological effect,’ she says. ‘When we look at certain colors it triggers neurological responses in the brain, and causes the hypothalamus gland to release hormones.

尤勒斯•斯坦迪什(Jules Standish)是《如何避免低沉着装》(How Not To Wear Black)一书的作者,同时为羞于表现自己的女性做服装品位和衣色顾问。她相信改变购物习惯就能增加自己的幸福感并增强自尊心。“研究发现颜色有心理作用,”她说,“我们对某一种颜色的注视会触发神经系统对大脑作出反馈,促使下丘脑腺释放激素。

‘Looking at warm, bright colors, such as red or pink, releases dopamine — known as the “feel-good hormone” — which can improve our mood, heighten the attention span and even boost our sex drive.


‘Cool blues, on the other hand, have been linked to the release of oxytocin, making you feel of calm.’ Here, Jules gives her verdict on the clashing colors that couldn’t be more suited.


‘Red and green should never be seen’ couldn’t be more wrong. In small doses, they work superbly well together.


Our brains associate colors with temperature, so scarlet is at the hottest end of the color spectrum. Scarlet and burgundy are both universally flattering and suit almost every skin tone and hair color.


Bright red also triggers the pituitary and adrenal glands, which can lead to increased metabolism and weight loss, so it’s great for a dieter. Pairing red with an equal amount of a darker shade, like burgundy, tones down flamboyance.


This combination is often thought garish, but here the cyan, or bright blue, helps to tone down the purple.


Bright blue suits most skin tones and helps to brighten the complexion. It’s proven that, if you suffer from stress, wearing blue can help as it stimulates the release of the calming hormone oxytocin.


Ordinarily, yellows and greens would not be worn together, but toning it down and pairing mustard with khaki is flattering. These earthy shades have golden undertones that illuminate greying, older skin.


Khaki is a flattering alternative to black for those of a certain age. And if mustard is still too bold for you, add gold accessories instead.


The phrase ‘pretty in pink’ really does work for all women, particularly those entering the menopause, as pink is associated with youth and femininity.


Research also suggests that men prefer women in pink, as it’s the closest color to skin.


The flattering shade of cobalt blue complements the pink and is suited to most skin tones, drawing attention away from dark circles under the eyes.


Purple is a calming color — its pacifying effect makes it one of the best shades to wear when feeling overwrought. Research has found that we associate yellow with joy, so wearing it can boost your mood.


Like fuchsia, pale pink is a feminine and youthful color, but it is more wearable than its brighter counterpart. Add touches of burgundy to make it more elegant.


Pale pink can be worn well into your 60s, and works for those who don’t feel comfortable in attention-grabbing shades. A silk blouse with a burgundy leather skirt softens the outfit.
