Colour is one of the key elements that determine whether clothes will flatter or detract from us. Generally we are attracted to the quality of colour that harmonises, balances and complements our own colouring. However, fashion, friend’s advice, availability, budget constraints and a lack of time all conspire against us; we ignore our own innate good sense. So how do we overcome this problem? With the help of a colour consultant
Colour consultants can save you a fortune!
Most of us will plead guilty to wearing the same garments time and time again, while dozens of outfits are stuffed in our wardrobes and drawers rarely seeing the light of day. Our favourite clothes are often neutrals such as black and grey. Without a sound understanding of the qualities of colour and in particular the qualities that suit us, we shop in a random and ad hoc manner. Our wardrobes are full of stand alone items rather than clothes that effortlessly and seamlessly co-ordinate.
One of the great benefits of having a colour analysis is that you learn how to develop an integrated wardrobe of clothes. When you begin to only buy garments that are in your best colours you create a wardrobe of items that mix and match. Virtually all your tops can be worn with all your pants, skirts and jackets. Your shoes and accessories can also be worn with many garments rather than a few. This greatly expands your options and provides you with a wonderful array of possible outfits for a much smaller financial outlay.
Colour consultants can raise your self esteem.
When you are shown how flattering your best colours are for you, it’s hard not to feel good about yourself. Your best colours make your skin appear radiant, healthy and youthful. They bring out the highlights in your hair and the colour of your eyes. They make you the star rather than what you are wearing.
Colour consultants can increase your confidence levels.
You will become much more confident about shopping and dressing. The more you learn:
- how to look fabulous, easily
- how to shop, discerningly
- how to resist fads, firmly
- how to co-ordinate, effectively,
the more your self confidence will soar.
Colour consultants can open your eyes to a world of colour choices.
Many people suffer from the misconception that a Colour Analysis offers you a small range of colours and is thereby limiting and restrictive; quite the contrary. You will learn how to combine colours in different and innovative ways, only limited by your imagination. Your options are exciting.
Colour Consultants can educate you.
You will be shown how to work with textures, fabric surfaces, patterns and contrast levels. The choices you make with these elements are as important as colour itself.
We each have our own textural quality and contrast levels. When we understand these things about ourselves we can understand why we are drawn to certain patterns and fabrics.
With understanding comes order and organisation. Our shopping becomes systematic and sensible. Our wardrobes become functional and effective. We become masters of our own image rather than slaves of fashion trends.
