Color Me Beautiful! I had my “colors” done in high school when I found out that I’m a Winter/Spring. I wear best the colors traditionally found in those seasons so, because of spring, I wear a lot of pink. Professionally and personally, wearing your colors makes you look younger and slimmer so it pays to find out what season(s) you are. | Fairygodboss

This brings back memories! My mother had me and my sisters colors done when I was growing up. While the concept is great and it does tell you the colors that are most flattering, I would say that just because they are flattering on you, they don't always make you feel your best. Maybe because you don't like a particular color in your palette. So still choose the ones that make you feel confident when you have them on, and as said above, wear those colors close to your face. Also, just because a color isn't in your season doesn't mean you can't wear it on the bottom as a skirt or pants. I have a sister who is a spring/summer and refuses to wear any black, even pants because it's not in her season!

Look into your closet and what do you wear most and least. What do you like best and least. Is your professional wardrobe different colors than your casual wardrobe?

Color Me Beautiful and finding out what "season" or combination of "seasons" I am has helped me in finding flattering clothes. To simplify it some, I found out that for me warmer colors look better as opposed to cooler. With this knowledge I now felt that I should wear another color close to my face if I had on a pure white blouse, or should ditch the pure white blouse for a cream-colored one or one with a warm undertone, both of which were much more flattering. As applied to interview attire, I have interviewed women who literally took the recommendation to wear a white blouse and black interview suit, and some of them looked like "death warmed over" - not the most flattering colors for their particular eye and skin color. As far as warm vs. cool, the easiest way I have heard it explained is to see the color of your veins - are they more greenish (warm) vs. blue (cool), and then dress with those undertones.

Understand. I wear my colors closest to my face and I wear black skirt or pants. On top, royal blue blazer.

Color Me Beautiful is an excellent book by Carole Jackson. I think she has published several books since her original book.
