I have looked into wearing the right colors many years ago and ascertained I was a “winter” – so cool blues and purples (if I am remembering correctly) would look best on me. Over the years, I have opted more for what is comfortable and affordable, rather than what falls into my right color category. However, I have always been drawn to blacks, blues, and purples, so most of my wardrobe consists of those.
In reviewing the core color guidelines from today’s lesson, I found that since I have dark hair and dark eyes, that my ideal core color is black. Bonus! I have lots of black in my closet and dresser. So, to purge, I went through and pulled out all the brown things, and pale greens, and navy blues. There really was not that much to pull out, but I noticed that that few items that I did pull were things I really did not wear that much anyway – when it was time to get dressed, I was not “drawn” to those items. According to the author, there is a good reason for that. Those items definitely were not my colors, so I didn’t feel as “pretty” in them. 😉
I love the simplicity of this wardrobe guideline. Based on hair and eyes, one MAIN color to wear – just one – so easy.
