Colors can illustrate an array of meanings within our lives. From vermillion to indigo, every hue radiates a complex energy source that can influence our personality traits.  

Alyson Charles, officially known as Rock-Star Shaman, spoke with V about the correlation between colors and moods. As a shaman practitioner, Charles utilizes colors as a healing tactic, incorporating the seven chakras and their affiliated tones into her teachings. 

“Changing [the] color of what we’re wearing can absolutely exude a whole different energetic imprint out into the world and to ourselves,” Charles told V. “There are a lot of different spiritual practices and healing methods that you can go to to try and get back into alignment, and working with the power of colors is one of them.” 

Here, V explores the symbolism of red within fashion.

Red represents confidence, power, and allure. Known as the shade of love and romance, this fiery color emits an abundance of energy when worn while also keeping you grounded. “Our first root chakra is the color red,” Charles explained. “It’s a color that — when it’s operating in a healthy state — really provides a sense of us feeling stable, healed, and at home within our own bodies.”
