Colorful Caps | The Science Behind Boosting Confidence With Color Therapy

When you wake up in the morning and you get dressed for the day, what do you want your outfit to say about you?

The way we look at it, you’re not a boring person. And we have a hunch that you don’t want your clothing choices to be boring either. 

So why should your cap be boring too?

Now, we know there’s a lot of fashion advice out there suggesting that colorful hats are completely out of the question. Instead, they advise you to only wear neutral/plain colored caps. 

But we’re here to tell you that a colorful hat can enhance your overall look. That’s why we at Kaftko have created our unique collection of colorful caps. All of which are crafted with the finest materials and colorful fabrics. 

You see, we believe that color has power! It helps convey your unique personality, attract attention, and set the tone for what you feel inside. 

But we know that wearing color, especially on your head, may not come as easily as it does for some people. 

This is why we’re exploring the answers to some of the most asked questions below. 

The first question we’re often asked is… 

What Are Hat Trends for 2022?

According to fashion experts, 5 incredibly versatile and stylish caps remain hot and trendy in today’s day and age: 

  1. Fedora
  2. Beanie 
  3. Sun Hat 
  4. Bucket Hat 
  5. Baseball Cap 

However, out of this list, there are at least two caps that have truly stood the test of time. 

We’re talking about the baseball cap and the bucket hat. Both of which have been voted, among the general public, to be the most favored hats in North America, and most of the world. 

But the fashion trend for today’s favored caps has changed just a tad from just a few years ago. 

What some stylists once advised as too loud, now recommend that colorful hats, like colorful baseball caps, are what help take your fashion style to the next level. 

Fashion psychologists say that adding colors to your wardrobe can help eliminate stress and even boost your confidence. 

This brings us to… 

Color Therapy & Fashion 

Long ago, back in ancient Egypt and Chinese times, people practiced “Chromotherapy”, otherwise known as color therapy. 

As you might have guessed from its name, color therapy is the use of colors to help activate the “biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body”, which then restores healing and balance.  

Researchers say: 

The body is stimulated by colors and colors are responsible to work correctly of various systems that function in the body. All organs and limbs of the body have their own distinct color.” 

This means that our organs, the entire build-up of our body, harmonizes with the frequencies of colors. 

You see, the second your eyes come in contact with color, those tiny receptors in your eyes quickly signal your brain with an emotional and energizing response.  

This might explain why you suddenly feel better when you wear a colorful hat or a brightly colored shirt. It’s similar to when you sit in front of a brightly lit sun lamp for seasonal affective disorder (SAD). 

But that’s not all… 

As it turns out, different colors stimulate different emotions and energies. 

Like red, it is commonly associated with power, passion, and confidence. Wearing it can quickly boost your overall self-esteem. 

Orange, on the other hand, triggers energy and the spirit of fun. It can hype you up when you feel down and even help aid you when it comes to making important decisions. 

Black and white tend to balance each other out when they are combined. The mysteriousness and professionalism of black can be enhanced by the cleanliness and peacefulness of white. They’re also the two colors that typically go well with anything and most outfits.

Blue, green, yellow, and purple also stimulate their own set of emotions. Like tranquility, healing, hope, happiness, and ambition. Wearing these colors, especially on your head, can enhance your mood, increase your confidence, and even brighten the spirits of on-lookers. 

But we get it... while the science behind color therapy and fashion help stimulate confidence, it doesn’t change the fact that if you’re not used to wearing colorful hats, styling them with your current wardrobe can be a bit overwhelming.

So, you’re probably wondering…

How Do I Style a Colorful Cap?

Longer supported hairstyles like wearing pigtails, a ponytail, or wearing your hair all down also works well with bucket hats. 

However, with a bucket hat, you can even wear your hair pinned up low enough to keep your hair in place while still rocking a colorful bucket hat. 

But out of these two, the baseball cap is by far the most popular and asked about when it comes to styling. 

This sign brings us to styling your colorful baseball cap with other clothing pieces. 

The beauty of a colorful baseball cap is that you can pair them with most outfits, especially fun casual outfits. 

You can simply match the colors in your hat with the color of your shirt, shoes, socks, and shorts/pants. 

A colorful cap can also pair perfectly with swimwear, like swim shorts and swimsuit coverups. Seriously! The brighter the hat is, the more fitting it is for the pool, beach, or any summer festival event. 

You can even rock a colorful baseball cap at sporting events. 

Maybe you don’t have your favorite sports team attire, but you have their team colors on your hat. Boom! That’s all you need. And the best part, your colorful hat can be used beyond just sporting your favorite teams. 

You can wear them to the gym, at parties, festivals, concerts, and wherever you feel like it.
