Wearing yellow makes you happy
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.

"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 such as this Henry Arlington 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."

Here are some other great pieces to lighten the mood:
