I know what you’re thinking, how can wearing a color make you look smarter? However, a British study from 2015 did find that wearing this one color will make people think you’re intelligent. Can you guess what it is?

Drumroll, please… the answer is black! Out of 1,000 people surveyed, both men and women, it was discovered that people who wear black are viewed as more intelligent. The results ran from “serious” to “playful” colors starting with black, followed by blue, white, green, purple, brown, red, yellow, orange and pink. So don’t feel bad about wearing all-black-everything all the time. It’s actually is a good thing!
