I have met lots of people who have no idea what colours to wear to enhance their look. Of course, ignorance is bliss – they can wear everything in their wardrobe without worry!
But, do they … wear everything in their wardrobe? Or, do they reach for their few favourites? Or, have they examined any pictures taken of themselves and wonder why some things look better on them than others?
My “before” and “after” Colour Analysis Pictures
Take a look at my top line of “before” pictures, compared to the line below. Interestingly, I got it right in the first picture, when aged about 8. Of course my mother had bought that dress, and it was my favourite at that time, especially in preference to my school uniform. As we were having school photos that day I begged mum to let me wear it, and am so glad she let me. However, how many times did I get it wrong thereafter until I had my colour analysis (including my white wedding dress and the bridesmaids who had the cool scarlet red, not a complimentary warm red which would have enhanced all of us). Hey ho. I was happy in ignorance. Anyway, the caveat is that when you are younger you can get away with more than when you have aged!
Camera’s are everywhere
In these times where we are captured on camera just about everywhere at any time of day, and pictures shared on social media before we can blink, do we want some of those pictures on there, if we don’t look our best?
Plus, knowing all the other benefits of getting it right, such as:
- A most suitable wardrobe
- Less “wasted” purchases, just hanging in the wardrobe, taking up space
- Less clothes yet more to wear (you get more out of each piece and can team it with more in your wardrobe)
- No more “what do I wear?” moments
- Knowing that everything suits you and why, giving you increased confidence
- Compliments – who doesn’t love those?
So, if it’s time you found out what suits you and why, please contact me, I’d love to help.
