Warm-Weatherize with Color

The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you! Coco Chanel

Pick a fresh, fabulous color! I love lavender and shades of cool-lavender love me. Here’s a three-point test.

  • When you walk into a room or peruse rich colors in clothing, what color pops out and makes you happy?
  • In natural daylight, examine the area beneath your eyes. If it’s deep blue or purple, choose cool tones. If it’s yellow, green or brown, choose warm tones.
  • Bring an item of that color, in a cool or warm tone close to your face, if your face lights up and imperfections seem to fade, it’s your color!

Warm tones tend to include reds, pinks, and oranges. Cool tones include blues, greens, and purples. Choose coordinated items, head to toe, for a pulled-together, polished look. Here's a cool-tone collection I've put together for myself.

Be colorful and enjoy! How do you bring color into your wardrobe?


Feel good in what you wear!

I can't thank you enough for this feedback! I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone out there.

I want to be relevant! Please help me by letting me know what's on your fashion-mind and how I can be helpful.

I love these colors! I wish more of the summer things had full lenghth sleeves as an option. I don't feel comfortable in short sleeves or three-quarter, so I'd love to see something longer more often. Not cuffed, but maybe wider, flowing openings.
