How to Choose Colors to Flatter Your Skin Tone

May 23, 2009

Skin Tones

An important part of choosing the right colors for your wardrobe is to pick the ones that flatter your skin tone. Below are tips on what colors to choose and which ones to stay away from.

Which Season Are YOU?

Decide which season most accurately describes your complexion. People and skin tones  can be divided into “seasons,” depending on their skin tone.

Which season are you?

Winter

“Winter” complexions have blue or pink undertones. Skin can be pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Winter people are generally brunettes, with deeply colored eyes. Many Asians and African Americans fall into this category.

Choose Clothes to Flatter Your Skin Tone

Are You Winter?

Winters should wear colors that are sharp, stark and clear. White, black, navy blue, red and shocking pink all go well with winter complexions. For lighter colors, wear icy tones rather than pastels. Avoid subdued tones like beige, orange and gold.

Are You Summer?

Summers should choose pastels and soft neutrals with rose and blue undertones. Lavender, plum, rose-brown and soft blue suit summers well while black and orange do not.

Are You Spring?

Springs can wear warm colors like camel, peach, golden yellow and golden brown. Avoid dark, dull colors.

It is often difficult to discriminate summer from winter, and autumn from spring. Remember that winters are usually brunettes while summers can be natural blondes. Springs tend to have pale eyes while autumns have dark eyes?

Secrets of accessories to your outfit, your body, and of one accessory to another

May 20, 2009

More at the waist means less at the neck and vice versa

Accessories should be proportionate and harmonize with the size, shape, and color of your outfit.

Trial and error are a very good practice using basic pieces first and adding trendy things later.

Too much of a one color sometimes looks awkward.

Petites should watch the size balance to their accessories.

Quality made accessories shows the worth your money.

Classic styles date less than novelty designs.

Always keep shoes, belts and bags well maintained with regular visits to the repair shop. 

Dilapidated shoes or belt does not justify your diamond earrings.

Don’t overdo.

Accessorize with Bracelets

May 13, 2009

Holidays are typically the time of year when we dress up more, wear more jewelry. We love the glitter and glitz of our silver and gold necklaces, and earrings.
However, what about our bracelets?
Do we wear them right? Do we wear them with care? Yes, there are tips to even wearing bracelets, nowadays

Opposites’ attract

If you have long slender arms and wrists, accessorize with chunky bracelets and cuffs. They highlight slimmer arms.

 

 If you have bigger boned arms and wrists then delicate wired styles will slenderize your wrists and arms.

Comfort zone

Will you be going from work straight to an office party? Wear a relaxed style of bracelet, connected with elastic. Clasp closure bracelets can feel restrictive after a few hours, as well as run the risk of snagging on something or someone, consequently falling off and becoming lost.

 

Neutrality

Are you blue? Blue toned anyways. Do you fret over the veins and the blue tones in your hands? Gold jewelry in rich yellow hues can neutralize any blue. Go bold with gold.

 

High wattage 

Cluster several similar bracelets together for an eye-catching statement. However, remember this works best if the bracelets are similar in color, style and shape is not as important.

  Natural

Try accessorizing with a natural flair. If you are going to a “green” party this year, along with your bamboo socks, adorn a tiger’s eye bracelet. On the other hand, a simple wood cuff will also make a bold yet elegant statement.

Asymmetry

If you are going for a symmetrical look, with a bracelet on both wrists, consider a rethink. Bracelets look better and are more pleasing to the eye if worn only on one wrist. Be asymmetrical by dressing up with contrasting patterned bracelets.

Whatever your style is, there are bracelets out there to match it. There are bracelets out there that will fit you and whatever size wrist you may have.
