Page 3 in the conversation "Your seasonal colour" by Eirlys
Thank you, Suntiger and Torontogirl
Kari, eggplant and teal are the very worst colors on me, sadly. They make me look sick and yellow. I think there is a shade of each color for everyone. Draping colors has never put me a season and I have tried several times.
I had my colours 'diagnosed' last summer but they're a little at odds with the bright colours I usually gravitate towards & also what's on the Kettlewell website. I'm supposed to be a deep & warm autumn, so I have to search Kettlewell according to that tonal direction instead of just assuming that all of the items earmarked as 'autumn' will work on me - just learnt that the hard way on my recent thread about my Kettlewell order, unfortunately.
I'm still trying to get my head around it though since I'm ironically in a minority that doesn't find it easy to wear head to toe black (imagine my surprise to hear that, not only can I pull it off but I all over dark colours is my forte)! I'm honestly also a little unsure about the accuracy of my season because I have brown skin & I think the usual assumption is that we all have a yellow undertone & 'olive' skin. I've been told that I have everything from warm to neutral & even a cool skintone before, so I don't know how robust the system is for judging non-fair or -light skintones... especially those of us that tan so easily!
Being labelled as a season is one thing but I find that I still buy colours I like. If I am doubtful I usually wear a white collar and I think I then get away with it .
Great solution Eirlys - and I hope you're getting on well with the social distancing, etc.!
