Did you know that the colors you choose to wear have a huge impact on how others perceive you – especially when presenting as a woman?
Colors convey subtle messages that can influence whether you appear more feminine or masculine.
So, if your goal is to look more feminine as a crossdresser or transgender woman, paying attention to the colors of your clothes and accessories is essential!
In this blog post on trans / crossdressing transformation tips, I share the meanings of 12 different colors and what they project about your female self.
White is associated with purity and innocence, which is why it’s traditionally worn by brides. Wear white if you want to look pure, pristine, and impeccable.
Light blue sends messages of peace, trust, and understanding. Dark blue is associated with authority and masculinity (think police uniforms), so use this color sparingly.
The best shades of blue for crossdressers and transgender women are light blue and baby blue.
Pink is the color of love and romance. No surprisingly, it’s also the most feminine color, so you may want to incorporate plenty of pink into your wardrobe.
Red is the most intense color of all and is associated with passion, desire, love, and sexuality. Wear red if you want to be noticed.
Black is associated with power, elegance, and formality. Wear black when you want to look sophisticated and mysterious.
Purple communicates mystery, magic, and creativity. This is a great color to wear if you want to add a touch of fantasy to your look.
Light green symbolizes freshness and youthfulness, while dark green is associated with money and ambition. Wear a gorgeous shade of green to add a fresh, feminine vibe to your look.
Yellow is the color of joy and energy. Wear yellow to show off your fun, playful side. Avoid yellow when you want to be taken seriously.
Like yellow, orange is associated with joy, enthusiasm, and attraction. This is a great color to wear when you want to liven things up.
Brown is a stable, wholesome, and down-to-earth color. Wear brown for mellow occasions or if you want to appear reliable and genuine.
Gray is a great color to wear when you need to come across as professional and trustworthy. Too much gray can get boring though, so be sure to punch it up with some fun colors.
Beige is a simple, conservative color that’s friendly, approachable and non-threatening. It’s perfect for times when you want people to open up to you.
