Designer Clothes, Shoes & Bags - Fashion Colors
The fashion colors you, your friends and work colleagues wear can affect more than you realize. Color actually affects mood. Wearing Spring colors and bright colors can lift spirits, while darker colors tend to add a formal and serious note to a work or any other environment.
Is there perhaps a hint of truth in saying that you are having "Shopping Therapy" when purchasing new clothes, shoes and bags? Maybe! The National Institute of Health has even researched how color can affect people. (1) I'm not advocating that you shop to lift your spirits, but nice designer clothing in beautiful colors can brighten up your day.
Is Color In Style?
Color trends come and go but certain fashion colors seem to always be in style and popular in men's and women's designer clothing and other types of clothes as well.
Fashion Colors - Black - Little Black Dress
Fashion color works with style. A women's designer dress instantly becomes a little more classic when it's black. How much depends upon the fashion style of the women's dress. A Little Black Dress is one designer dress every woman should have in her wardrobe since it can be worn for many different events. A Little Black Dress can be worn as a cocktail dress, party dress, evening dress, or date night dress. It's very versatile and is often a favorite dress because it can be worn anywhere.
This Black Longsleeved Wiggle Pencil Dress by GF Ferre is a perfect example of a Little Black Dress. It fits well and there are some great style details at the wrists, waist, bodice and hem that in addition to looking great also help the dress to move with you and make it more comfortable. These things along with great quality fabric are some hallmarks of well made designer clothing. (More about the benefits of buying designer clothes, shoes and bags later in this blog article.)

Fashion Colors - Red Sneakers and Shoes
Fashion color even affects athletic performance. Red has been shown to increase both athletic performance and perceived performance (1) Think about that next time you buy a pair of sneakers - you may want to buy red sneakers like these Dolce and Gabbana sneakers!
Fashion Colors - Blue and White
Men's Dress Shirts - Blue and White Dress Shirts
Blue has a calming affect. Blue also tends to be the most popular color, and because of this it's a fashion color that is always in style irregardless of the color trends. Perhaps this is why men's dress shirts historically have been primarily either men dress shirts in white (it goes with everything) or men's dress shirts in blue. Here are two great Dolce and Gabbana dress shirts.
Blue pinstripes add more formality and an additional dimension to a blue dress shirt. As do white french cuffs.

Fashion Colors - Pink - Men's Pink Dress Shirts
Men's pink dress shirts can make a suit seem less serious and the person wearing it more approachable. This pink Dolce and Gabbana dress shirt with pinstripes has a great look for Spring!
Fashion Color and Designer Cufflinks
Designer cufflinks increase the level of formality of a designer dress shirt even more and add a luxurious fashion style.
Cufflinks are worn on formal occasions and sometimes to the office depending upon your business culture. Taking the cue from your manager is a good way to gage whether cufflinks are worn at your office. Men's designer cufflinks can add a nice touch to a formal event, an important client meeting (again, check first if they are worn), or a special formal event out on the town. Plain gold or silver cufflinks are the most conservative look. Here's a pair of gold brass cufflinks from Dolce and Gabbana.
Red, green, yellow or any other color of cufflinks can coordinate with your suit and stand out even more.
Color Trends For Designer Bags, Clothes & Shoes
For Spring, in general think of pastel colors like pink, blue, yellow and green for your designer clothes, shoes and handbags. These seem to bring a welcomed breath of fresh air after the cold winter weather. These Dolce and Gabbana Green Suede Strappy Platform Sandal Pumps are a great Spring color, and the suede material makes it a good transitional shoe for Spring.

Designer Colors - Why Should You Buy Designer Clothing?
The color dye for designer clothing, shoes and bags is usually brighter or more highly pigmented and lasts longer than a comparable non designer article of clothing, shoe or bag. Designer clothes, shoes and bags have upgraded fabric that keeps its shape while looking and feeling better as you go through your day at work or at home. We know you have a lot to do and we think enjoying the clothing you wear helps you perform your best. (1)
