This week I completed my color experiences of being a color for a day.
Monday: Olive Green
This outfit was very comfortable for me- I felt easygoing and approachable. My friends told me that I looked nice, and appeared laid back and friendly. I think this green is a friendly color- it wants to make friends without imposing. I also the olive green shade that I chose must have affected my day (by making it so comfortable), which may not have beent the same for a brighter green, like lime green.
This color fit into the color palette that most people wear, but since there was so much gray, people noticed. The color was easy for me in that it didn’t distract me, but it also bothered me that there was so much neutrality and no extremes to break it up. I felt a little bit mucky and dreary, almost indecisive. So much of this color of gray was unsatisfying because I wanted some variation. Some people liked the outfit and told me that it seemed like a nice color for me.
Brown felt a lot like gray in that it was a lot of neutrality that I wanted to add some color/juxtaposition to. I don’t think a lot of people noticed this one, and one girl who did notice said she liked it because it was subtle. Someone else told me I looked good in it, and it matched my hair. Overall the outfit seemed pretty normal, felt pretty comfortable, and had a sense being natural and human to me. It seemed to fit well well with other colors around me and socially fit in.
