Fun fact: colors may not exist—they might all be in your head. No one actually knows whether colors are real and our eyes just perceive them, or our minds construct the colors out of light and shadow.
That means that the colors you see—and especially your favorite color—may be specific to you. Blue may be your favorite color because your blue is stunning: you and blue just get each other.More
You in a Nutshell: Really energized to do the things you love. Like the unapologetic clarity of the color scarlet (think fire trucks, red roses, the angrily swirling ruffles of a flamenco dress), your focus and direction are strong. You don't second-guess yourself—you don't have time for that, you've got stuff to do. You know life is short. You also know that it's beautiful: you're not aggressively pursuing investment banking, dear red-lover, no. You're writing poems that reveal people's buried feelings to themselves, you're designing and sewing clothes that only you could come up with, you're getting really, really good at the trapeze. Nothing holds you back because you don't let it. Your head's in the (life) game.
Your Sign Is Probably: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius
You Might Want to Think About: Slowing things down once in a while and getting in touch with your gentler you—the soft rose iteration of red. Pair up with a lover of pink, white, or purple to expand your horizons.
Why Your Crew Loves You: Your confidence is contagious and inspiring. Also, why do you only need, like, six hours of sleep a night? So not fair.
5 Things You Need This Summer:
An on-the-go red person requires the perfect on-the-go red backpack.
A creative mind like yours needs a notebook on hand at all times.
Look, you're someone who knows what you believe in. And what you believe in is red lipstick.
No sleeping in for a go-getter like you!
Those flamenco vibes we mentioned before? They'll give you the attitude you need to pull off this dress.
You in a Nutshell: Someone who takes themselves or the world very seriously. Or you might just love how slimming black is when you wear it. Either way, you know that black is not as simple as just being "dark" or "goth." It's the absence of light, it's absolute, and you love how extreme that is. It feels so safe, and you love that feeling of protection: just as black is protected from the vicissitudes of light and the spectrum, you, too, dream of freedom from the unpredictability of life. You like to be in control and are continually making efforts to tame your emotions, which tend to get the best of you.
Your Sign Is Probably: Gemini, Scorpio, Capricorn
You Might Want to Think About: Taking yourself a little less seriously. Ask the orange-lovers in your life where they bought their polka-dot underwear.
Why Your Crew Loves You: You're cool, and we all aspire to your dark, restrained sense of humor.
4 Things You Need This Summer:
Give your trusty leather jacket a break and swap it out for a boxy, military-inspired number that looks equally cool over a slip dress as it does paired with jeans and a tee.
Round sunglasses harken to earlier eras of effortless style. Plus, they give you that perfect air of aloofness.
When detoxifying leaves your skin looking better, it's impossible not to feel confident.
Cloak your phone in an elegant suit of black marble, and as you organize your gCal, you'll be totally in control.
