    are there any colors you would NEVER wear? I never wear yellow, just doesn't feel good to me,but will wear black, white, and almost all colors except pastels.

    I definitely believe colours can affect our moods. I'm not a fan of yellow at all, either, though I will wear it on occasion. I'd say that overall I don't really care for yellow, orange, light pink or highlighter green. Other than that I'll mix it up with most other colours in my wardrobe.

    For me, its the other way around. I believe that the colors I wear depends on what mood I'm in. If I feel happy or excited I tend to wear colorful more lively
    colored clothing. When I'm down or feeling tired, my color choices are more on the dark hues too.

    I doubt that the color of the clothes you wear will affect your mood. What of those people who have to wear a uniform to work? Let's take an example of blue. You've seen cops wear blue. Does it make them calm and relaxed? I doubt it.

    If you associate a certain color with a certain mood then your mind will most likely create that reality for you because you believe it.

    I would have to say no. The colors i wear do not effect my mood.

    To be honest. I don't give the colors i wear much thought at all. As long as it matches i really do not care. I do think that colors affect my mood. At least not on a conscious level. May be on a subconscious level that could be true, and i am not perceiving it. That is a very interesting concept.

    I will be sure to keep that in my the next time i wear certain colors to see if there is any relation.

    I don't think that the colors you wear affect your mood. The employees at Walmart wear a lovely shade of royal blue and they always seem to be in a bad mood. During one of the worst birthdays of my life, I was wearing a pale yellow dress.
    , which didn't cheer me up. I'm more affected by wall colors in my apartment and the colors of the furniture because I have to live with those colors. Dark walls would definitely put me in a bad mood.

    I find I pick out what I'm wearing based on my mood. I find that the colour of clothes I'm wearing can affect my mood as well. In the winter months I wear more grey and navy and in the spring I find I wear more pastel colours. I sometimes will try to add some colour into an outfit by adding a brighter scarf or shoes. It will pick up my spirits for the day. There are some colours I don't have in my wardrobe. Yellow being one of them. I just don't look good in yellow. I think you have to have a certain complexion to pull it off. Also I don't wear orange much.

    I also don't think that the colors we wear can affect our mood, they can only lighten or brighten the ambiance of the room. Having said that, I don't like wearing white though, it looks too plain.

    I never wear light colors except for white because they started to define my stomach when I got a tad bigger lol. I'm starting to lose weight nowadays thought so I'm might start wearing my light colored clothes again. I'm a fan of dark clothes though because they look manly and they hide my fats hahaha.
