Personal adornment in red and pink
What is the essential need to adorn ourselves with such bold colours in headbands, hats and accessories?
And consequently, I found this description of ‘Self Adornment’ on www.uia.org.
“Dress is the most obvious status symbol, and to be dressed attractively and in fashion gives a sense of well-being and confidence. The human-being uses self adornment ( dress, cosmetics, tattoos for example ) to express physically his or her interior being and personality…”
One must be feeling bold to take on these colours as the colour red has many symbolic meanings such as: love, power, fortune, prosperity, and beauty. Perhaps introducing a bit of pink brings on a more subdued mood. The lighter colour has a calming effect opposed to red which conveys strong emotions.
Have a read of an editorial feature from Google Arts & Culture “The Secret History of the Color Red.”
Feeling bold? Adorn yourself in striking accessories
Certainly, I suggest, if you are feeling bold don yourself in red and pink adornment!
And if not, Do it anyway!
