The colors you wear affect your emotions and influence how others respond to you, so it’s important to make your spring fashion choices based on the Feng Shui theory of the Five Elements. The Five Elements are Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and each has a characteristic color, shape, and attribute. When you wear the color that represents a specific Element, you project its meaning.
For example, if you are involved in social activities this spring and want to feel dramatic, wear fashion in the Feng Shui Fire Element colors red, orange, or purple. Red is ideal to wear when you want to draw attention to yourself or stand out from the crowd, but avoid red if you are nervous or self-conscious. The other extreme, pink, is the color of romance, so wear it when you want to resolve a situation with a loved one, because it’s soothing nature dissolves anger.
If you are involved in family-oriented activities or want to feel grounded, wear the Feng Shui Earth Element colors brown, yellow, or terra cotta. Brown is good to wear if you feel scared or insecure, but avoid wearing it when dealing with stubborn people. Yellow conveys stability so you can wear it when you have an important decision to make, but avoid yellow when you are feeling tired because it might drain your energy levels.
If you are involved with cultural activities or want to feel elegant and stand apart, wear the Feng Shui Metal Element colors white, pastel, or metallic. Metallic fabrics convey sophistication, white projects purity, and pastel colors attract fun.
If you are involved in artistic activities or want to feel elegant and project strength, wear the Feng Shui Water Element colors black, navy, or deep blue. Black conveys power and promotes a sense of strength, so wear it when you need to command leadership or exude mystery. Wear blue when you need to make the people around you feel relaxed.
If you are involved in health-related or athletic activities or want to feel energized, wear the Feng Shui Wood Element colors green or teal. Green projects growth and expansion, so this is a great spring fashion color to wear when learning new skills and taking classes. Avoid wearing green when you are restless because it’s a stimulating color.
