color me confident

Have you ever tried on a blouse or dress that looked lovely on the hanger, but made you look pale or sickly? Maybe you weren’t sure what was wrong, but it’s likely you were wearing a color not flattering for you. Your clothes should work in harmony and balance with the coloring of your skin, hair and eyes. Color analysis is the process of determining the colors that best suit an individual’s natural coloring.

Those of us of a certain age remember Color Me Beautiful, which is a seasonal color analysis. It places individual coloring into four general categories: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. When I discovered the book on my aunt’s shelf, while visiting over the summer, I devoured it and was amazed. I was a winter. Now, it made sense why, at the young age of four or five years old, I instinctively hated the golden yellow and white striped shirt – with matching golden yellow stirrup pants – in which my Mom would dress me. Conversely, it also explained why complete strangers would complement me when I wore red or black.

Original Color Me Beautiful

Beyond the four seasons

Interestingly, there did seem to be some limitations to a system that divides everyone into only four categories. For those of us who are too young to remember the original Color Me Beautiful and for those of us who felt like the system was missing something, I’m excited to let you know there’s an updated and more accurate version. I believe the new system is even better for helping women identify the colors that are most flattering to them so they can look and feel wonderful. How great would it be to have people complementing you, to look in the mirror and feel great about what you see, to save money by not impulse buying an item that’s going to look bad on you? Sounds wonderful, right? Let’s get started!
