Pink is the color of the moment. Not only is pink the season’s hottest color – you can wear pink purposefully as a tool to gain an edge in your career.
According to color psychology, the color pink is a positive color, inspiring warm, comforting feelings.

When the department painted their detention cell bubblegum pink, the children tended to relax, and stop yelling and banging.
The San Bernardino result is entirely transferable to career.
Wear pink any day of the week, but especially on a day you might find yourself in a tense situation, such as human resources meeting over a delicate or highly charged subject. Lighter pink hues signify passivity, lightness, and tranquility.
Deeper pink hues exhibit more passion and energy.
