25% said orange makes you look more unprofessional than any other color.
The MOST-professional color you can wear is blue. And black was a close second.
According to the survey, black is the color most associated with leadership. Blue makes you seem like a team player. Gray makes you seem logical or analytical. White makes you seem organized. Brown equals dependability. And red is a POWER color.
