Business was never meant to be done in black and white — even stocks are colour-coded. If you have the liberty to play with colours for your work wear, then you should seize the opportunity. Not only do distinct shades make you more remarkable to the people you meet but they may also subtly influence their mood, behaviour and response towards you. That said, here are the colours you should add to your power wardrobe to get an edge in the professional world.

Red may be the ultimate power colour, but if you're looking for a more versatile but equally eye-catching hue then go for vermillion. It evokes enthusiasm and energy without being too eager nor intense. It's the best shade to wear during Monday meetings when a bit of positivity is needed to beat the blues. Match it with white or cream pieces to bring out its vibrancy.
