This year you are determined not to get dragged into another conflict with Old Man Winter. Unleash your secret weapon! Armed with a fleet of sweaters in a rainbow of colors, you'll have won the war before the first battle cry has a chance to echo through the frosty air.
Shrouding yourself in reds and pinks can invoke feelings of overall optimism that naturally energize you. Keep a similarly hued cardigan by the door when you need a pick-me-up. Work a few into your power wardrobe as needed.
Have you ever peeled an orange, breathed deeply, and felt just kind of....well, happier? The color has the same effect. Call to mind the last time you watched the sunrise paint the early morning sky...you're smiling, aren't you? If smelling it and envisioning it have the power to brighten your mood, just think how happy you'll be when you're wearing it. Orange and corals may be totally new to you. If so, introduce it to your wardrobe by way of a cozy turtleneck sweater. The soft yarns will help ease you into your soon-to-be-favorite color. Trust us.
Do you remember that yellow light bulb that used to appear over cartoon characters' heads when they got a good idea? Little did you know at the time, but the color yellow actually inspires good ideas as well as cheerfulness. So, throw on an Atlas Yellow Drifter Sweater and lighten up the team's overall mood by welcoming giggles to the 9:00 a.m. brainstorming session. A bit of fun will allow ideas to flow more freely.
Green was put on this earth to bring us back to it. For the months when escaping into the Northwoods isn't an option, let an Antique Spruce Duster Cardigan wrap you like moss on a fallen log. This is a color that is sure to nourish your soul with pleasing tranquility.
Everything is better with blue. The most universally soothing colors out there call themselves blue. Try it in an Indigo Slate Heather Sweater Dress, or for a style that gently edges you toward a more rustic flair, go with a Deep Sea Quilted Barn Jacket. No matter how you wear it, you're sure to feel totally at peace while doing so.
Or is it better in burgundy? Worn by royalty throughout the ages, purple tones are associated with empowerment and good judgment. I mean, who couldn't use a little more of that in their life? This winter let a Deep Claret Sherpa Fleece Jacket takes its rightful place in your closet with the rest of your fleece lineup.
