I believe that it’s not “who” we wear, it’s “WHAT”.
The colors and textures that you choose to wear can not only empower your mood, but influence your environment as well . Yes, I promise, it is that easy to change your mental and physical conditions-therapy is the act of caring for another. Wearapy is how you care for yourself.
Welcome to my psychology of style.
Jeannie Mai is popularly known as a Wearapist. This term comes from her psychology of style she calls ”Wearapy”. This is her belief that style and wardrobe can have an empowering and healing effect on a woman’s confidence and mood.
Rather than focusing on trends or labels, Jeannie teaches how color and textures in personal wardrobe choices can dramatically enhance a woman’s self-confidence and mood, while transforming the environment of situations around her.
Jeannie believes that the simple swaps out of your everyday choices can have a longer lasting effect on your mood and situations.
Examples of this include:
- Instead of having caffeine for energy, dress up your look with a bold yellow or bright pinks. These colors bring excitement and attract energy in people around you as well as yourself.
- When dealing with depression, look to crisp shades of white to symbolize a fresh start. Blue is also a healing color, with powers to clarify and cleanse the senses.
- If you are struggling with confidence issues or you are feeling unnoticed, try swapping your neutral lip shades with a bold red or warm berry. This attracts the audience to everything you have spoken.
As a Wearapist, Jeannie teaches women that life’s scenarios call for specific Wearapy tactics.
- Job interviews: Black to represent boldness, green to bring energy and excitement, yellow for warmth and joy.
- Date nights or first impressions: Peach for comfort and open communication, velvet or cashmere for romance.
- Public speaking or large group events: Purple to convey royalty and confidence, reds to attract and draw attention.
