By pairing complementary colors together, you can create great outfits that make the most of your natural beauty.

  • Jeans work well with many different colors, so casual chic is easy to get. Cool women can pair dressy jeans with hot pink or teal tops while warm women will look great in red tops over dark jeans and high heels.
  • Don't limit yourself to light shades only. Rich hues of flattering colors can make a bold statement and can really bring out your natural beauty.
  • If you find slacks or a skirt in a color you love but that also doesn't fall into your most flattering category, you can still wear it; just pair it with a top that does flatter you.
  • Use makeup and jewelry to enhance and complement your clothing choices.

Choose Complementary Colors

Knowing what colors flatter your skin tone - and choosing your wardrobe accordingly - can have a significant impact on how you look and feel. It can also take some of the guesswork out of shopping for new clothes, something that can help you reduce stress while saving time and money. When you wear colors that really work with your skin tone instead of against it, you will look your best and you'll feel good about the way you look.

When I first found out how to choose colours that go with your skin and hair, I was very surprised that it is infact divided into 4 categories.  Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.  I thought this sounded a litte bit too new age for me.  It's not, and it sure aint rocket science.  If I can figure my color season out, believe me, so can you!  It is very easy and Im here to guide you through it.

 

If you look at the picture below, this is the easiest place to start.

 

I think the best way of determining your season is to go through each of the charts and see which season most describes your coloring.
