Cheer yourself up with some colour on Blue Monday

Don’t feel down in the dumps. Why not brighten up your day with a pair of colourful shoes or socks!

Nicknamed ‘Blue Monday’, the third Monday in January is said to be the most depressing day of the year thanks to a combination of bad weather, high debt and poor diet in the aftermath of Christmas. Research however, has shown that introducing some colour into our lives is a great way to cheer ourselves up. So instead of feeling down in the dumps, why not brighten up your day with a pair of colourful shoes or socks! 

Paint the town red

Red is a colour that’s associated with energy and happiness. A little can go a long way so a pair of red shoes is the perfect way to brighten up an outfit.

Get inspired with purple

A combination of red and blue, purple sits exactly between the two shades on the colour wheel. It’s thought to help us with our creativity and is often seen as being a spiritual colour. It’s also associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition.

Feel good with florals

Put some spring in your step with a pair of floral slippers. Our Millie slippers in Blue/Lilac Floral are made from a cool, cotton-mix fabric so they're great for feet that feel the heat.

Add sunshine to your day

Yellow can often be seen in nature. It’s the colour of sunflowers, daffodils, lemons and bees and is associated with sunshine, spring and feelings of happiness and optimism. Not only are these sunny, yellow socks very cheerful looking, they’re also very comfortable! Thanks to the ‘no-elastic’ Softhold® top they won’t dig in or restrict your circulation.
