Every year, Pantone,
the “world-renowned authority on color” assigns a specific color to the new
year. For 2018, that color was ultraviolet, because it represents “originality,
ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” While that
is certainly an inspirational endorsement, not all of us know how or even care
to rock any shade of purple as a pop color. So, how can we choose a color that
speaks to us without stretching our personal identities and preferences too
First of all, we need to acknowledge that a
pop color doesn’t have to be wild or ostentatious. The trick is to establish
your safe spectrum, those shades you feel confident wearing, and then infuse a
little contrast into the mix for a perfect marriage of conservative and
watch from IonLoop is just the accessory you need to keep the pace and stay
current with color trends.
Clocking Your Color
Take a look at the selection of IonTime
watches. Available in black, green, navy, orange, and white, it’s easy to pick
a palette in line with your personal style. Granted, one might argue that
black, white, and even navy are neutral colors -- not much surprise behind
But, be mindful of how those shades play
against the rest of your wardrobe and accessories. Side-by-side with the right
shirt, shift, or even silver jewelry, any of those three colors proves
striking. The power of any color, of course, is rooted in its meaning; that is,
the meaning our culture has long assigned it.
If you ask Changing Minds, a marketing and
sales online resource, black -- all too often considered or called “basic
black” -- is symbolic of power, elegance, strength, and the mysterious allure
of night. In other words, nothing that sounds basic, neutral, drab, or dull.
White, on the other hand, signifies newness,
simplicity, purity, and peace. An IonTime watch in white, set against a black
blazer cuff makes a stunning statement. This is the ladies chooice!
And navy? Researchers at Color Wheel Pro assert that navy
“symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and
heaven. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human
metabolism and produces a calming effect.”
All told, these “conservative” colors pack a
serious punch with respect to the representation of ideals and ambitions.
Punch Up Your Palette
If you’re looking for more pizazz when it
comes to your trusted timepiece, IonTime offers your choice of green or orange.
What message do you want to convey?
Once again, the team at Color Wheel Pro prove
useful in their explanation that green “symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness,
and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark
green is also commonly associated with money.” We can all get on board with
that! Moreover, “Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color
for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and
Stability and endurance? What better
guideposts for an IonLoop athlete, whether amateur or professional?
If you favor orange it could be because you
appreciate that this shade is “associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics.
Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity,
determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.”
In fact, Color Wheel Pro goes on to explain
that “Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating
effect, and stimulates mental activity… In heraldry, orange is symbolic of
strength and endurance.”
Again, right in line with IonLoop’s mission to
support the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of its customers.
