Find your Colour - PART 1


After my last post on colour analysis, I've been inundated with requests to offer more information, like that of what I offered in my Body Shape Analysis Guide. I wasn't sure if this is something that would work as well in written form as colour analysis is such a visual experience - a video might be more useful no? However, in the mean time I thought I'd work on a brief guide for you guys to help you on your way whilst I summon up the courage to get in front of the camera!

After much deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that colour analysis can be an enormously helpful tool for people looking to find their own personal style identity, because it forces you to consider the role of colour in your wardrobe and points you towards a palette that suits your own complexion and away from trends. However, I do believe a colour profile should not be looked at as a set of rules, but as just a guide.

In my last post I talked about the different seasons you could be and how you can determine the season by looking at the veins at the back of your wrist, or a simple comparison to one of the celebrities below, might give you more of an idea.
