Henry Arlington shirt in Ringhart fabric

make sure your wardrobe is full of colour for every mood

Wearing a touch of yellow is a great way to lift the spirits and feel happy in these austere times, says Karen Haller, one of the UK's leading authorities in applied colour psychology. She thinks this striped shirt created for Henry Arlington, the luxury men’s clothing and accessories brand from the Jubilee fabric collection from Ringhart, will definitely banish the economic blues.

“While the current favourite look of a crisp white shirt with a dark suit looks smart, it does not help make the man wearing it feel happy,” explains Haller. “When we see the sun our spirits soar so wearing a touch of yellow is a great way to inject some optimism. In the tough 1940s, fashion was extremely conservative and colours were limited to black, navy, grey and ivory in keeping with the sombre mood of the times. The choice of colours was not available then, but they are now and we need to use them to highlight the positive aspects of our lives.”

Combine yellow with blue as in these stripes and the wearer will not only look and feel happy, he will also be seen as a good communicator, intellectual, trustworthy, calm and logical.

“Every time you select a colour to wear you are making a statement of how you are feeling and how you want others to interact with you,” adds Haller, “so make sure your wardrobe is full of colour for every mood.”

Henry Arlington’s collection features colourful stripes and florals, including Liberty prints, selected from Ringhart’s range of 100% superfine cotton shirtings, which will be shown at Textile Forum, the fashion fabric trade exhibition in London next week (7-8 March 2012)
