Why injecting colour into your suit style could make you happier (and richer!)

Wearing a splash of colour with your suit could get you a promotion, a pay rise and make you happier, according to a study of 2000 British workers.

The study produced a number of interesting statistics:

-20% of British workers wear no colour at all – choosing to stick to black, white and grey.
-20% of 18-34 year olds credited adding colour to their work attire with receiving a promotion.
-33% said they felt more positive
-27% said they felt more active
-20% of workers felt more energetic
-14% said they felt more creative
-20% of 25-34 year olds credited adding colour to receiving a pay rise.
-25% attributed their sense of style to landing the job in the first place.

Rebecca Alford, the marketing manager of Case Station who commissioned the study, commented:

“The psychology of colour has long been used in business, but only recently has it moved into areas individual workers have the power to control. We believe the trend of personalising your work appearance and environment will continue to gather momentum rapidly, and workers will be increasingly looking for new ways to stand out from their colleagues when it comes to their individual style.”
