A recent article in the daily mail covered a study that suggested players who wear red kit are more likely to be punished for bad tackles by referees.
Studies show we are all affected by the colours around us and by those we choose to wear.Colours create both a physiological and emotional response and Red is one colour that has been proven to have a definite physical effect.
Red can be associated with anger but it is also associated with importance (the red carpet at celebrity event for example).Red has been shown to raise the pulse rate and increase appetite. Because it is on the shortest colour wavelength we also see it first before other colours, hence its use in traffic lights worldwide.
Wearing red can make you appear dynamic and assertive but it may not be best for building an atmosphere of trust during initial discussions. It can also make you appear slightly larger! It is a colour of confidence and loved by some but a lot of people shy away from it as a wearable colour. However red comes in all shades and knowing whether you are a warm or a cool red or suit a soft or bright shade is key to welcoming into your wardrobe.
