How many of you know your best colours and how to wear them? I for one have always wanted to get a professional colour analysis done, I always play it far too safe (which can be classed as boring). Not only that, for many, many years I have worn black and lots of it, only to be told a few years ago it is one of the colours I shouldn’t wear! WHAT – I can’t wear black, WHY – I love it, all my favourite clothes are black and every year I buy at least one new key item in black!
I think if I’d got a professional colour analysis I would have understood why black doesn’t really suit me – but as with most things we could do for ourselves in life, I have kept putting it off, whether it be due to cost or time, I always had a reason not to go and find out what really suited me.
Then as if by magic I came across this article, which I found 1. really interesting, 2. easy to understand and 3. bloody good advice – sometimes the “universe provides” (that’s one of mine and Lucy’s favourite mantra’s, perhaps we will go into that another time, gosh so many things to write about!)
Anyway, it got me thinking it would be a great blog to share with you all – I can’t be the only one who doesn’t have a damn clue what colours to wear? Here it is, courtesy of the very generous Maria at www.lookingstylish.co.uk who offers a number of other brilliant fashion services, which I may well be looking into in a bit more detail in the future, which I’m very excited about, so keep an eye out. Anyway, read away, you will not be disappointed…

Are you the SOFT/MUTED woman?
You are neither a Light type nor a Deep type. You may describe your own colouring as ‘mousy’. You will have neither very blonde nor the darkest of brown hair. Your eyes will vary from brown to hazel, grey green and blue grey. Your overall look is muted and blended, with no great contrast between the hair, eyes and skin.

It would appear I am a Warm Woman, Mr Perfect may disagree with that, but we are talking my colour analysis style not my heart! I’ve read the tip sheet and have to say it makes sense. There are loads of colours I would never have dreamt of looking at, let alone buying – suffice to say, next time I go clothes shopping I am going to take the sheet with me and try on some different hues and see what I think.
