Sometimes you look at your closet and wonder, where did all these boring clothes come from? Check out these 17 clothing colors that affect your mood and see if it’s time for some changes in your wardrobe.
I live in a colorful place where you’d think my closet would be full of tropical vacation clothes, but no, I’m still a black and white girl.
There are a few colorful things in my closet that I pull out when I’m going somewhere I think I might be in photos or when I have to shoot a video. The rest of the time I’m black and white.
So what do our color choices mean about us?
