Psychology of color

Purple color is obtained by mixing red and blue. These two colors have opposite properties: red symbolizes energy and variability, blue symbolizes calmness and stability. This inconsistency determines the properties of the purple color.

This is the most mystical color in the palette, magical properties are associated with it. Deep shades of purple inspire thoughts of something otherworldly and unknown, they can scare and even cause a feeling of anxiety. At the same time, color beckons with its mystery, associated with cosmic energy and miracles.

In psychology, it is generally accepted that purple is the color of secretive and distrustful people. They are critical of others and very demanding of themselves, so purple is also the color of idealists and perfectionists. At the same time, these are very sensual and even romantic natures, in whose soul real passions rage. The purple color helps them restrain impulses and control feelings.

Like other colors, purple has a lot of shades, which depend on the proportion of blue and red. These are such delicate halftones as lilac and lavender, as well as brighter and more active shades - plum, eggplant and violet.

Purple + Black

It’s stylish, but very insidious combination. Dark shades of purple can merge with black, and then the outfit will look gloomy and overloaded. Black looks much more advantageous in combination with bright shades of purple.
