Adding Color To Your Wardrobe is Effective To Your Everyday Style

Adding Color To Your Wardrobe is Effective To Your Everyday Style

There are various colors in my closet that each play an effective role, and are great additions to my wardrobe. I discovered that adding color to your wardrobe is effective to your everyday style and well being. It’s not just about choosing any color, but the colors that look best on you and has a positive effect internally. Whenever I wear colors that complement me, they make me feel and look good.

In spite of that, I wasn’t always aware of what colors complemented my skin undertones best. Before I knew anything about how effective colors were, I would follow whichever colors I got the most compliments or positive reactions in. The colors that I would always get compliments in were red, orange, yellow, green and blue which turned out to be my personal colors. Go figure. Although the importance of colors and why they had a psychological affect on me and clearly other people, I was still perplexed about what made them my colors, and how. 

Then I learned that certain colors are capable of emphasizing and deemphasizing a person’s appearance. Any color that doesn’t flatter you, can make you look pale and unattractive. Who wants that? So it should be obvious that anything flattering has the opposite effect. The idea of finding your personal color is to reflect your natural beauty which is what we should always be after. I love anything that can help me exude my natural beauty and doesn’t take a lot to accomplish. 

 

My first introduction to finding the colors that are complementary to your skin tone was from the creation of color psychology. I learned how to determine my personal  color(s) through a color analysis and no longer needed reassurance from others. A color analysis is the process of finding the colors of clothing and makeup to match a person’s skin complexion, eye color and hair color. For each warm and cool skin undertone there are four groups of colors (seasonal colors) that help you discover your best color palette. To determine what your season is try using this as your foundation and start. (here) Your best colors are just a seasonal color away. 

The best color in the world is the one that looks good on you. 

Some of the colors I discovered on my own that radiate my skin tone and internal feelings are fuchsia, burgundy, white, grey and coral, among others. I’ll even wear one of these colors as a monochromatic look (as pictured) because I enjoy the color that much. Adding the colors that are right for you can change your mood daily and how others see you an instant.

I know one thing, you will definitely see more fuchsia on me going forward, lol. The way this color makes me feel showed up in each of my photos. I felt so lady like, sophisticated and romantic.    

Have you heard of color analysis? Are you aware of your personal colors? Have you added your personal colors to your wardrobe?
