The wrong colors can make you look older, heavier, tired and even ill (of course you could use this to your advantage if you wanted to take a sickie!). The wrong colors also often wear you, so that people see your clothes before they see you (a friend might say “that colour shirt is great”).
Not only do the correct colours for you make you look healthier, younger, slimmer and brighter. They also make you feel healthier, younger, slimmer and brighter. Now your friends say "you look great". Colour also affects our mood and emotions, our perceived body shape and the overall impression we make on others. So why would you wear anything other than the colours that suit you best?
Seasonal colour analysis categorizes people into one of 4 categories
Winter- colours are cool, clear and dark to light intensity. Think of the winter landscape colors. In the low light of winter colors appear darker, but on a bright day with the sun reflecting off snow colors appear pale and icy
Summer- colours are also cool, but muted and medium-light to medium-dark in value. Think of seeing the landscape through a summer heat haze. The colours are muted, paler versions of Winter’s. The light colours are creamy pastel rather than icy
Autumn- colours are warm, muted and medium-light to medium-dark intensity. Think of fall New England landscape colors of rich burnt oranges, reds, golden yellows and sludgy greens
Spring- colours are also warm, but clear and bright with medium to light intensity. Think of the bright clear colors of spring flowers and the new season’s clear, bright green shoots.
The categories are named after the seasons and the colours found together in nature to help you remember the range of colors they include. Your seasonal colour range will complement the coloring of your skin, hair and eyes
