Are you sure you're wearing the right colours? 10 ways to tell
If you're reading this blog you're probably very aware of the power of colours.The
power of wearing the right colours that suit you.
You are very aware you will look younger, slimmer, more vibrant, more stylish and
attractive when you wear your colours.
Have you had your colours done? And even if you have are you sure they have
been done correctly and you are getting the most from your colours?
People's experience with colour.
Over the years as a colour consultant, I've seen a real mix of experiences with
People wearing the wrong colours. People not wearing any colour at all. People
that are certain they're wearing their colours and are not. People that have had
their colours done correctly but are not utilizing all their colours. People that have
had their colours correctly analyzed but have been given poor advise about how to
choose their colours or have been given swatches with the wrong colours as well
as the right colours. People that sometimes accidently wear the right colours,
People that wear the wrong colours most of the time.
But whatever their colour experience, I know they can always improve on getting
those colours right and bringing their image up a notch or two or three.
10 tips to see if you're wearing your colours all the time.
Firstly let me say that the older we get the more we will realize that certain colours
"just don't do anything for us"
Have you ever noticed that? You'll try on a colour or even a garment you've worn
many times before and suddenly realize, "Yuk" I look terrible in that colour?
Clients have even told me they have to wear scarves to hide certain colours
because they think they can't wear that colour anymore.
So obviously tip no 1. Is you realize yourself that certain colour just doesn't suit you
It never was your best colour, but it's become less flattering as you've aged.
Tip no 2. You get very little compliments in that colour. I know not everyone has an
eye for colour, but if you notice lot's of side whispers when you go out with friends
and a funny look on their face, it could be that cacky coloured top your wearing.
Have you noticed when you're wearing a different top in a different colour the
compliments just keep flowing?
Tip no 3. You look and feel old and tired. It can be a real drain when your wearing
the wrong colour. You catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and you tell your
boss you're not feeling very well and need to go home. The sad thing is they agree
Tip no 4. Nothing in your wardrobe matches. This is really telling. If you have a
wardrobe full of mismatch colours that don't flow, it's a good sign that there are
many offending colours that don't belong in your wardrobe.
Tip no 5. You seem to be unco-ordinated. You're outfit is just not right. You may not
know what needs to change but you never feel quite well groomed enough.
Tip no 6. You feel a bit "drab". Again you're not sure what needs to change but you
always feel drab. You think it's because your getting older and older women look
drab anyway. (such a lie).
Tip no 7. You hate shopping. There's nothing more of a drag than shopping when
you don't know how to choose colours that suit you. Nothing seems to look good
and everything makes you look drab and sad.
Tip no 8. You bring clothes home and never wear them. Mm this is a bad one.
Liking something in the shop and getting it home and finding it just doesn't really
look good on you and it doesn't go with anything in the wardrobe.
Tip no 9. You mix everything with black. A real give away. Black doesn't go with
everything my friend, even though we've been told it does. Mixing black with
everything is the biggest tell tale sign you know nothing about your colours.
Tip no 10 Because 10 is a round number. You're wardrobe is colourless. If you
know your colours, you'll have heaps of colours in your wardrobe.
