The color of clothing has an aesthetic, psychological and even physiological effect on a person. Its shades and combinations play a key role in creating a festive and everyday look.
In different nations of the world, colors can mean opposite things. So, what is the meaning of the symbolism of some colors?
White - ideal purity, a symbol of goodness, purity, truth, peace, silence. A girl in white always attracts attention and arouses interest, although in some countries of Asia and Africa it is considered the color of mourning.
Black - symbolizes unhappiness, depression, evil spirits. But thanks to Coco Chanel, he became a symbol of elegance and won the championship among classic colors. Black slims the figure, but is not suitable for everyone, as it can obscure the delicate features of the face and give them pallor.
Purple - the difficulty lies in the fact that it consists of red and blue - two opposites. Maybe that is why it is considered a sad color, and at the same time it is one of the most mysterious.

Blue - symbolizes nobility, mystery. Knights in the Middle Ages dressed in a blue suit so that the lady was sure of their constancy and fidelity. It is preferred by business people with leadership qualities and determination.
