fashion tipsHave you ever tried on a garment that fits great, but the color just didn’t look quite right? Here’s a quick guide to help you find colors that look the best on you. The color charts are scanned from one of my fashion books and I’ve added a few celebs to give an example of each season.
Love All Around,

Winter: cool) You natural hair color is usually dark and you have brown, hazel, dark blue, grey or green eyes. Your skin has a cool blue undertone. Winter people can wear true black or white clothing. Clear, true vivid colors from light to dark will make you look good. Any colors with blue undertones are recommended. Dull or dusty colors should be avoided.winter color chart

Spring: warm) Typically have a heritage from Scandinavia, Britain & Northern Europe. Your natural hair color is flaxen or strawberry blond to medium or reddish brown. Eyes will be blue, aqua or golden brown. Your skin has a warm yellow undertone and hues with yellow undertones look best on you. Medium to light colors are better than dark shades.

    This is nice, but I’m curious as to why there are no images of women of color here? I have a really hard time with these “color seasons” books for that same reason.

  11. simply.steph says:

  12. WendyB says:

    I think I’m one of those “days where you can’t really tell what season it is because the weather changes so much.”

  13. Autumn, winter, Spring or Summer I can’t avoid it, I love black, grey and white!

  14. Krystal says:
