Sometimes we fancy a colour that’s unflattering on us, or we look fantastic in a colour that we don’t like to wear. I run into this challenge with clients from time to time and it’s not easy telling someone that they look drab in sage green when it’s their favourite colour. Or when magenta was made for them, but they loath it.
Of course, you also need to know which colours work for your hair colour and skin complexion. Feel free to look at posts in the YLF colour category for some guidance. Here are some recent posts where I talk about different colours and their applicability:
- Colour palette for blondes
- Brunettes in blue
- White, off-white, cream and beige
- Yellow: the unexpected star of the brights
- Citrus + Neon = Citron
- Ink blue: the new black
- Can redheads wear red?
- Mix it up with white
I scored with my colour palette. I’m able to wear the colours that I love and I’m happy to leave the ones that I don’t. But this is not the case for everyone. Do you wear the colours that you love despite the fact that they’re not ideal? Do you stay away from colours that look great because you don’t like them?
