~Let Color Inspire You~

When we think of giving or receiving roses, we often think of love and adoration ... and if we are really in tune with the deeper aspect of color, we also consider the color of the rose and what that color symbolizes. For instance, if you receive a single red rose or a bouquet of red roses, you'll often think of romantic love. Yellow roses would put us in the mind of a "friendship love" while white roses might symbolize purity, marriage and new beginnings. Color symbology is not some clever concept some random person thought up while sitting around bored, but colors truly do have energies or vibrations if you open yourself up to them!

Not only do color frequencies and energy resonate through the gesture of giving roses, but color energy resonates through all things! Ever feel a certain way, but have no clue as to why? This could have a whole lot to do with the colors around you or on your body -your attire. Have you ever noticed that wearing certain colors inspire your mood in some way? For instance, if you wore a bright and  beautiful shade of yellow it more than like would lift your mood and might even make you cheery. It might be kinda hard (in general) for you to feel melancholy while adorned in such a high vibratory color. Now wearing black, on the other hand, might inspire you to feel removed from an environment and protected in a sense. You might even wear black if you wear feeling melancholy, as to conceal your emotions. 

Colors mean everything and this is why PRASM's focus is color based! We are not simply interested in trying to set trends and styles, but we have a love for using our products to change lives and lift spirits! Why not make getting dressed everyday even more meaningful?!

The best thing about the PRASM belt and sock collection is that those color frequencies work in the same way as with anything else, but the difference is that you don't have to spend much time deciding how you can use color to your advantage. No! You just simply throw on whatever color-style belt or socks move you for the day and you allow those color energies to get you going!

So perhaps you don't want to leave the house in an orange shirt (or pants), but you want to add a touch of orange at the waste and on your feet. Well you can do this easily with an orange belt or socks. Orange promotes energy, intellect, creativity, endurance, vitality, emotional balance and so much more! If you've never entertained color symbolism, then give it a try while paying attention to the way colors affect your psyche and your energy level!

Need to get your passion up for an event, a person, a project...  wear red. Red promotes courage, passion, strength, power, determination, recognition, respect, physical energy and more. And it doesn't matter how much of a color you're rocking ... it can be just an accent of red and it'll still serve the same purpose. Red nail polish would also serve the same purpose! So would a PRASM belt or socks! It doesn't take much.

Have to give a speech or do you need to have a serious conversation with someone? Feeling uneasy, unbalanced or unsettled? Wearing the color blue brings out good communication, peace, tranquility, calmness, and balance. Blue also promotes truth, loyalty, an active intuition, stability, hope, faith, an open mind and so much more! 

Open yourself up to color energies and become aware of that which you are attracting to yourself. Don't underestimate the power of color!

In the next post, I will cover all the colors in a list or chart form! In the meantime, you could research some of the metaphysical color properties on your own! It's fun... really it is! Turn the simple things in life, like getting dressed, into something with a deeper, more meaningful purpose! To find our PRASM collection, please visit our website here!

Also, don't forget that if you're in the St. Louis area, you can also stop by our local store as well. Find the business hours at the very bottom of this page. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful rest of the week :)

PRASM Clothing is more than just a slick, color-style brand that does business individually with our customers, but PRASM is shooting beyond the stars as well! 

To interested companies, we offer the option to resell our belts and socks in your own establishment! So whether you're an "up and coming" business or an already well-established one, we open our doors to you if you want to join the PRASM, Color-Style revolution!! 

In addition, we offer companies the option of ordering custom colored belts!

What's Your Flavor?

Are you retro, abstract, urban, funky, fun, laid back, eclectic...? Are you simply a person who loves to add a bit of flavor to anything you rock? Remember the old adage, "less is more?" Well that bit of wisdom most certainly applies to our attire, too. If you look at the fashion world -both past and present- you notice that popular fashion critics tend to choose the understated "celebrity" style as some of their most favorite looks. The world's "style" icons usually are those who have mastered the understated look by not doing too much, nor doing too little. At PRASM, the saying, "less is more" definitely applies!  

PRASM belts are such a good choice because they don't overpower your look, nor do they go unnoticed! They add a perfect, vibrant touch to your flair. The wonderful thing about this is that you don't have to put a lot of thought into how you'd add more flavor to your look, but instead you can choose from a multitude of colored belts! Many of these colors (purple, blue, orange, green, etc.) can go well with a number of casual looks (regardless of what color you're already wearing). We are now in a fashion era where many are flowing toward a more abstract look -by blending "unusual" styles and colors together. PRASM is a great way to do just that!

This is a great example of how different looks and colors
can come together perfectly, creating an urban vintage, yet modern look!
Featured in this photograph is our Bright Red PRASM belt, which can be
purchased here!
Imagine this... You're rushing from the house to meet a friend for brunch. You simply want to throw on a pair of your favorite jeans (or khakis, as in the picture above)! You rock your jeans with one of your simple tops because you're not in the mood to get super fly or 'glammed' up... BUT you still want to turn a few heads or better yet, you want to add some flair to your look! This is where a nice, solid colored PRASM belt becomes your 'go-to' accessory! Your jeans and top go from a casual tone to one with a bit of edge and uniqueness, all without taking up too much of your time! So when you're scurrying out the door to meet friends, grab a solid colored belt (such as those featured in our PRASM collection) and let it take your outfit up a notch. On your leisure days you don't have to turn your style "off." No. Turn it "on" with something as simple as a quality made, richly colored belt.

PRASM socks serve the same purpose as well, but it adds some "oomph" to your feet and shoe game. Our socks not only serve as a tool for style, but even better than that they fit very comfortably on the foot. So, whether for comfort or style, PRASM socks are a first choice for those who love the best of both worlds!

Elevate your attire... simply. Just add some color at the waist and on your feet (if you dare be bold enough) and set your own trends!!

Cheers, and thank you for taking time to stop by our blog! Have a beautiful week :)
