Did you know you can use color to boost your confidence, signal you're open for connection or show you’re trustworthy? Yes, Sis, color has the power to do all that and more.

The colors you wear and surround yourself with can impact your mood, the vibes you give off and how other people perceive you. Remember Rihanna’s all-red look for last year’s Super Bowl halftime show? Not only did the color make her stand out on stage, but it also helped boost her confidence and energy level for the performance. The bold hue was also the perfect choice to make her equally bold pregnancy announcement to the world.

The colors you gravitate to can also reflect your personality. Alicia Keys’ signature color is purple; it’s no wonder since the color is associated with creativity and spirituality.

When you choose what colors to wear, you might focus on what complements your uniquely beautiful shade of brown. But color choice goes much deeper than what looks good on you. Culture and personal experience can influence your response to certain colors, but in general, people often draw similar vibes from specific hues. Take this quiz to test your color comprehension and learn how to leverage this powerful tool.
