The second edition of the book, Return to Your Natural Colours, will be at Amazon around late November and I will announce it here when it happens. Today’s post is a preview. The Season Snapshots are new.
Instead of aiming for textbook colours, I am looking for items that can find reasons to be in the Season because they have so much in common, and will make sense in the same closet.
It’s hard to make sense of this garment with the aquas and greens of the palette, which begin looking frivolous or childish when in truth, they are stunning and vibrant on a Light Summer. Greens are excellent for getting a sense of what could be rational together.
Centre Stage is good but a bit light for my taste. It’s also a little dry which is good because it stays for hours and doesn’t move. A touch of Flash Bulb over the top and the result is more divine in appearance and wearability. I want lipstick till noon.
Of the colours that do nothing for Summer coloured people, these are the ones that keep showing up, plus three great ones.
Here is how you really get gray right in your wardrobe. Reading about it only gets you so far. The shopping breakthrough is taking the fabric to the store. Compare the colours under the same lighting. Then, it becomes easy and fast.
What about all the people who see colour and time of year differently or live in a land without snow? In today’s post, Jennifer is our guest blogger from New Zealand. From her recent PCA, she found a new awareness of her own colours repeated in Nature.
The Neutral Collections (NCs) are collections of 12 pieces of fabric cut in 9×4 inch rectangles in colours that function as wardrobe neutrals. Every colour is unique to that Season.
From where I stand today, these are the colours that I expect to be beautiful on most everyone of these colouring types, or Seasons.
Believing in what we think we see, meaning colour matching, is why so many women are paying for less-than-best hair colour and can’t find a lipstick that looks like part of their face.
