How many of you spend too much time getting ready for your day? You look in the closet, pull out hangar after hangar of separates that you thought looked ok together, yet you still struggle to put a cohesive outfit together that makes you look and feel good. You are frustrated, rushed and still a little uncomfortable about your appearance.
Perhaps you grab that gorgeous top (that still has the tags on it!) and decide it doesn’t quite look right with the skirt or slacks you are trying to pair it with. Maybe you reach for that new dress, that fits perfectly, (that may also still have a tag on it) but when you look in the mirror it doesn’t quite look as awesome as it did in the store.
The reason these wardrobe items don’t quite feel right is probably a simple result of them being ‘not quite the right color’.
While you may not always think about color, it is a part of your life and you react to it. Correct colors can make you look younger, slimmer, healthier and more confident. On the other hand, they can make you look older and heavier than you would prefer.
Sometimes you buy an outfit because you are naturally attracted to the color. Other times a sale item is too good of a bargain to pass up. If a particular color is “in” one season you may buy it to update your wardrobe. Or perhaps color has often confused you and so you play it safe with neutrals.
The results of this kind of buying are closets full of clothes and nothing to wear! Many outfits stand alone, unable to be mixed or matched. Complete accessories must often be purchased for only one suit or dress. And, of course, makeup is then worn to “match” an outfit, not enhance your looks.
Knowing your best color group, and dressing so others see YOU first, not your outfit, shows your observer that you are confident. Knowing your best color group allows you to dress and purchase clothing that will not only make YOU look good, but it also allows you to streamline your closet. Correct color awareness can greatly simplify your life. Shopping is easier and takes less time, also you will save money. A few articles of clothing which coordinate can accomplish the same goal as many separate outfits.
Color awareness will definitely enhance your appearance. In the correct tones of color; your eyes will sparkle and blemishes and wrinkles will seem less noticeable. You will look more rested and more assured of yourself. The incorrect color tones will do just the opposite. Wrinkles will be more pronounced and your complexion may look more yellow or ashen. Your eyes will appear dullish and you will look more tired.
