Wake up feeling a little anti-social? Time to add a little disco to your day!  All it takes is a flash of silver to help you lighten up and throw some attitude at the same time.  Take a cue from color psychology because the colors we see and wear have a profound effect on our moods. In this case, silver has a feminine energy and is related to the moon and tides of the ocean.  Think about phasing your mindset while this shiny color illuminates your way forward.

First, start with a sick pair of shoes.

Bored of the leather moto jacket?  O-ho!  Stick to the shiny variety.  Silver colors are associated with prestige and wealth and protects itself from outside negativity. Use the versatility of the color to project modernity and allure in your otherwise casual outfit.  Silver jackets are so much cooler.

Like yours truly, this color can be a little indecisive and non-committal. Take a step and commit to the color with shimmery fabrics instead that shine and glow. Add pops of color with bright lipstick or accessories to keep yourself from disappearing. While silver is shiny, it still has a tendency to fade into the background. No wallflowers allowed!

Silver Compassion

Since silver is representative of the ebb and flow of the tides, wearing it in soft, flowing fabrics is perfect. Give your cranky self the feeling of letting water roll off your back. In addition, try to take things a little more in stride. Ebony and ivory.. grey’s shiny counterpart is seen as unbiased and compassionate. Step outside of yourself for the day and wear something that is reflective of peace.
