Every color in your seasonal palette looks beautiful next to your skin. But two women who are the same season might wear their palettes very differently, partly because of unique aspects of their coloring, and partly because of their style types.
If your style type is predominantly Classic, which colors in your palette should you focus on?
Classic is all about tasteful understatement. Because color makes a such a huge impression on the eye, a Classic will always want her colors to be toned down. The only aspects of a Classic look that are showy are the details one has to look closely to notice, such as fine tailoring, a discreet designer monogram, or an expensive fabric.
So your go-to colors will be "office colors" -- your blacks, your whites, your greys, your browns, your navies, and perhaps your darker greens.
Your use of color, even if it's monochromatic or highly contrasting neutrals, should never feel aggressive; it should always feel understated. (If your use of color feels intimidating; you're veering into Dramatic territory.)
When you combine colors, the effect should always feel coordinated. The viewer should be able to image the items were purchased as a set.
As a Classic or Classic blend, you might use other colors in your palette successfully; the guiding question should be whether the color stands out or blends in. (You're aiming for the latter.)
Are you a Classic or a Classic blend? How do you use the colors in your palette? Please share in the comments!
