5 Colors to Wear After a Heartbreak

When you’re heartbroken, it’s easy to become someone you aren’t. Scientifically proven, breakups can provoke existential crises. After a breakup, you may have a lot of questions in your mind, especially because you’ll have to figure out just what kind of person you want to be moving forward.

We promise that the end of a relationship does not equal the end of the world! You might lose a person, but you shouldn’t lose yourself. After all, it’s the other party’s loss for letting go such a wonderful person like you.

Though we can’t do much in the “relationship 101” department, we’d like to give you advice in the fashion department. Instead of opting for bleak colors to represent your current emotion, say… black, grey, dark grey, dark brown, or navy blue, you can try these pretty colors instead! 

1. White

In the first few days after the breakup, you don’t need to wear ultra bright color right away. You can start with the very basic white. 

In color psychology, white is associated with the feeling of newness, cleanliness, and clarity. You may want to incorporate white into your outfit in the first week after the breakup to display the spirit of a new chapter in your life.

2. Green

Slowly but surely, you’ll heal yourself. When it’s time, wear something green.

Green symbolizes harmony, balance, and restoration. On earth, when the color of green is present, it indicates that there’s life around it either by the water or under the trees. 

3. Yellow

Being the lightest hue of the spectrum, the color psychology of yellow is uplifting, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. Yellow is related to the ego and our sense of self worth, hence we believe wearing yellow can awaken greater confidence within you. 

4. Magenta

In color psychology, magenta is seen as the color that creates harmony and balance in every aspect of life; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This color is believed to be the representation of change and transformation (which is something that you can relate to after a breakup). When we see the color magenta, it helps to release old emotional patterns that prevent personal development and assists us in moving forward.

5. Pink

In your final form, it’s time to wear pink again! Pink is a color that represents a gentle type of love. Since the color is so strongly associated with femininity, the color is thought to be related to softness, nurturance, and compassion.

Research found that the color of pink and its shades are unique and they can evoke various emotions. So when you wear any shades of pink, we hope you’d feel different type of positive emotions such as joy, full of life, and even euphoria!

If you’re in the mood to shop (shopping is indeed another form of self-care and guess what? You deserve it!) don’t forget to slide into our app and tell our stylists to include any of these colors. Chin up! It will be alright soon.
