What’s Your Best Color? Hint: It’s Probably Not Black

January 7, 2011

Everyone in Black

This blog series, focused on alternatives to black, comes from my growing frustration around the amount of black apparel and accessories in stores and on people.

Unless you have black hair or a black base to your hair, black is not your best color.

Your best colors enhance your features while your worst colors can make you look older, more tired and sickly.

The next several blog posts will review the women pictured above, from Nordstrom.com and AnnTaylor.com, with a suggested alternate color based on basic hair, eye and skin color assessments.

The color assessments and suggestions apply to both women and men.

When you know and incorporate your best colors into outfits, you can use them to enhance your features, body shape, lifestyle and personality.

Hello, Fabuliss…What is Kelle Wearing?

December 20, 2010

Client Kelle was due for a new interview suit.  She knew a skirt suit was in order – the dressiest kind of suit – and wanted to ensure it was not a boring suit.  As she tells us, we found a beautiful suit at Ann Taylor, one of my favorite stores for petite women.

Her body shape is a slight triangle so a wider lapel that broadens her shoulder was a great fit.

We mimicked her eye color by choosing charcoal grey and brought in the gold tones from her hair with the mixed-metals necklace.

Additionally, the pattern on her shell, combined with the textures of her necklace make a nice match with her curly hair.

A sheer off-black hose provides visual unity without being too stark and a black croc-patterned shoe adds provides interest and a little-but-not-too-much personality.

We are excited for Kelle and know that she’ll get positive attention whether she’s in an interview or the boardroom.

December 2, 2010

It is not always easy to get motivated to work your style, especially when amongst close friends and family.  These are the people who know you better than yourself so why bother? When you are feeling especially unmotivated, remember that when you look great, you will feel great.

Without further ado, here is the final installment of holiday outfits 2010.

Character vs. Style

You could play into the expected role this year – the mid-life-crisis Mom, the Cougar, the Scrapbooking Grandma, the Tomboy or the Mama’s Boy.  Or you can reinvent yourself as someone who looks put together.
