3 Prettiest Outfit Colors for Women

3 Prettiest Outfit Colors for Women

It’s time to let everyone in on a little secret. The way to a man’s heart isn’t through his stomach; it’s through his eyes. People are very visual creatures – by a survey, men even more so – so something as simple as shade can raise a brow, purse the lips, make the heart beat a little faster. Before you reach into your closet and dress up for a night on the town, take some time to consider how the color of your clothes will make you pop from across the way. And we’re here to help. Following are the top 3 Prettiest outfit colors for women that will raise the temperature on the whole room.

The first is backed by common knowledge and by science: Red is the color of the aphrodisiac.

Researchers at the University of Rochester have confirmed the news, having studied how men respond to different colors on or around a woman. They did this by showing participants a black-and-white image of a woman against a background colored in red, gray, green, or white, and full color pictures of the woman in a blue or red top. The results were consistent with men thinking the woman highlighted by red or wearing red as prettier. Men were also more likely – by a large 56 percent – to want to ask out the woman dressed in red, relative to the one dressed in blue. It’s an evolution thing, they say, but you can skip the specifics and simply invest in a red blouse that will knock a man off his seat.

Second is the slimming color: Black.

According to surveys, women usually overrate how much men care about how slim a woman is, but there is definitely a preference shown in surveys to an hourglass figure. Black differs from other lighter colors because it reflects light rather than taking it in. So it serves to “block” any shadows and highlights in your figure that may not flatter, making your shape more two-dimensional in a sense. This works to slim you down, which of course helps to make a “go out” dress into a “knockout” dress.

Third is the underrated color: your color.

No, not the color of your skin, but the color that makes you feel the Prettiest. It can be pale white, baby blue, bright yellow, royal purple, or puke green – it doesn’t matter. As long as you feel confident in it, that’s the aura you will cultivate around you. There’s even a science to this too: the psychology of confidence. People – men and women – are attracted to confidence in other people. They want to be friends with confident people, and, often, more than friends. If a gray get-up makes you feel like Beyoncé twirling her hair in a music video, then – you go girl – that’s as pretty as anything else.

Look Better (And Younger!) in Just Minutes… Without Surgery!

We are so very critical of ourselves, it is heartbreaking. We tend to think if we lost ten pounds (or 20, or 100, or 5) that our lives would magically become perfect, or that if we only had a tan, or a fuller mouth, or a different shade of hair… I want to tell you that none of those things will fix you, nor fix your life, nor make you feel better for longer than short term.

It took me a long time to learn this, but wherever you go, there you are. We each have to deal with our individual problems within ourselves first. We have to learn to love ourselves. You can learn how amazing and beautiful you are. Honest.

Look in a mirror, not critically, but with great love and affection. Imagine yourself how a parent or favorite adult saw you as a child… how adorable you were, and how adorable you still are. Close your eyes and see yourself as a love interest first saw you, how you appear to your best friend, and what you look like to your child. Think about your friends, and how amazing they look, think about the gifts that every person brings to your life, and think about what they look like again. Now do it for yourself. Open your eyes and look at yourself with love, with affection, with forgiveness. Give yourself a little hug or pat on the back. Laugh at yourself. You are going to be in this relationship for the rest of your life, may as well make it fun!

I find that truly loving yourself makes you treat your body differently. You want to eat foods that will enhance your body’s performance, not slow it down. You no longer want to smoke, drink to excess, or eat a whole box of cookies. There are days, however, when to love yourself is to eat a few cookies, and that’s OK, you deserve comfort, you deserve love, you deserve affection. When you give it to yourself, and give it to others, you will feel it flow back to you. A smile is the best curve on a woman’s body, so smile, relax, and enjoy.
