How often do you buy a garment because you love the color or liked the way it looked on a model or a friend?  But then you find that when you wear the item, instead of compliments you get questions about whether you’re tired or ill.  This could very well be a result of the color choices you’re making, and learning your best colors is an investment that will quickly pay off.

Essential Colors

Color analysis is a process of determining the most favorable colors for you based on the unique pigmentation in your skin, hair, and eyes.  Many color analysis systems use a seasonal categorization. However, I use Essential Colors which categorizes according to nature’s five elements: water, wood, fire, earth, and metal to develop color harmonies, or palettes.

The greatest benefit of color analysis is learning the best range of colors for your unique complexion.  These color ranges complement your face showing you in the best light to those around you.  Practical advantages may include:

        • Money better spent on clothing purchases (fewer purchases that you end up not wearing)
        • More coordinated wardrobe and accessories (everything goes together better rather than having multiple individual outfits)
