So — Does Colour Matter?


“Oh, she can wear any colour…”  Are there really people who can wear any colour? Or is it that that person always appears in a good colour for them and uses a variety of colours for clothes (possibly following some colour advice). I think it’s the latter.

Before I ever trained as a colour and image consultant I use to wear colours and not feel entirely comfortable, camel had always got a big question mark above it’s head and so had magenta pink whereas I felt completely comfortable in olive green, red and black.

When I trained as an image consultant I learned that different people should indeed wear different colours and that it goes deeper than that and that the colour of a person’s eyes, hair and skin can even affect the tone and depth of a colour so that whilst I as a dark haired, brown eyed, very white skin woman can wear primary shades of boldest red, blue, and yellow( and my olive and magenta pink but not the camel), my fairer haired, blue eyed friend needed less aggressive colours, softer tones of all those colours would suit her much better but if she really wants to look special light moss, coral and most blues would really work. 

And the colours that look good on you for the first forty years or so may not be the ones that look good when you’ve got natural highlights in your hair and your skin’s losing warmth – so that my grey haired clear skinned brown eyed client no longer looks fabulous in muddy greens and pumpkin but looks like she’s had a blood transfusion in coral pink and lapis blue – and as for clear teal…well!

The other exciting thing about changing colours too is that the make-up can also change and my client above would look wonderful in coral and pink lipsticks instead of the soft brown she is used to buying from her pre-grey days.

It’s not possible to look good in every make-up shade either and strong bold colours in make-up suit the women who can wear strong bold colours in clothes whilst the fairer women amongst us should go for lighter more pastel shades.

The other good thing about learning exactly what shades will suit you best is that your whole wardrobe becomes co-ordinated almost of it’s own accord when you stick with colours in your own personal colour wallet.  When you arrive back home with your latest purchase it’s highly likely that the colour-analysed woman will already have existing items in her wardrobe which will match the newly bought garment.  This saves pounds by not having to go out and buy something else to go with it, but even better causes a lot less stress and the new garment can be worn straight away.

There’s no doubt that some people have a better eye for colour than others and indeed may appear to wear every colour well but I bet there’s some that that person avoids because she knows it doesn’t suit her or go with the rest of the wardrobe.  A little personal colour knowledge not only save a fortune in buying and experimenting with clothes  but can also give the impression that you know what you really know what you are doing with what you wear.
