DISCOVER YOUR BEST COLOURS
I love colour. Colour lifts me when I'm feeling flat, colour boosts my confidence, wearing colour makes me happy.
Although there’s no shade of the rainbow you can’t wear, there are certain colours that make you feel good, that you are drawn to, and that generate compliments when you wear them. Those (unsurprisingly) are your best colours.
If you look around you'll notice most people are shuffling around in those dark, drab clothes. In a sea of black and grey a splash of colour is always noticed... and always welcome.
Take a peek in your own closet. Is it filled with dull, dark, sad-hued clothes? Don't fret about it, that's why I'm here, to nudge you in the direction of colour!
Do you know your best colours? I adore sassy red, bold orange, sunny yellow, sapphire blue, and emerald green. When I wear my brightest and most flattering colours, compliments find me and I feel like my best self. When I shop, I'm always on red alert (or yellow alert, or green alert) for flattering tones.
Shopping is so much easier and so much more fun when you know which colours make your complexion dewier, your eyes brighter, and your outlook sunnier.
One word of caution — don't get trapped in a colour ghetto. Lean towards your best colours, of course, but be open to colours you've never tried, or colours you believe to be your wrong for you. You might be surprised that mustard yellow does look good on you or pale blue makes you look shazam.
In our swinging 6ixties, more than ever, it's vital to dress in colour. Black does not make you look thinner; in fact, it's aging and essentially makes you disappear. Instead of wearing black with your best colours, wear more colour with it!
3 Top Colour Styling Tips
Make a list of your best colours and start bringing them into your wardrobe.
If you're not sure of your best colours, ask a friend. One easy trick is to look at your eye colour — blue eyes favour blue, green eyes favour green, etc.
Wear black sparingly. Instead, pair colour with colour, like red blouse + red trousers.
