Spring is here and most of us are excited to be wearing lighter and brighter clothes. Seeing the beautiful spring colours in the store windows brings a smile to my face. However, the colours featured in the spring fashion palette do not make my smile look bright, white and dazzling, because they are warm colours of peach, yellow, lime green and lilac. Since I have a “cool” skin undertone, I look sallow when I wear warm colours. Are You a Colour Clash or a Colour Compliment?
Wearing unflattering colours can make you look tired, older than your age and can actually deplete your energy.
When you wear clothing in colours that are too strong for your complexion, hair and eyes, they are the attention getters, not you. Bright or neon colors can seem to enter a room before you do. All anyone can see is the colour and you go missing.
