How Color Typing Has Evolved Over The Years: Part 1

You’ve heard of color typing, right? It was an idea in the fashion industry that was all about dividing people into four color categories, designated by the names of the seasons. If you were a "summer," style consultants told you to wear lighter shades at the cool end of the spectrum, or if you were a "fall" color type, you were told to wear darker, warmer hues, for example. Well, this was a good start, but it didn't take into account the whole picture. 

These days, color typing has evolved to evaluate a person's "true colors," so to speak. Fashion consultants know that there are far more than four types of people in the world, and you do too, right? You’re unique, and your style consultant should know that. 

Today, style consultants take a lot of different things into consideration when they help you find your color type. Your personal fashion consultant will consider skin tone, personality, hair color, eye color, age, and more. An image consultant will take into account all facets of your appearance and lifestyle to develop a color palette for your wardrobe that is truly unique to you.  

Why do this, you ask? When you wear colors that are truly meant for you, it is amazing the boost in confidence you'll feel. This way, when you walk out your front door, you won’t be thinking about your clothes, you’ll be thinking about how good you look. Choosing the right pieces will become almost effortless, and you’ll know that your wardrobe will let you put together just the look you want.  

Don't spend another season wearing the wrong colors.

Signs That It’s Time For a Professional Style Makeover: Part 4

Sign #4: It Feels Like Work
You know it’s time for a professional style makeover when you dread opening the closet every morning. Have you been waking up each morning with no idea what to wear and hating the entire process of deciding? Getting dressed shouldn’t feel like work.
A wardrobe should express a person's character, taste, and style, as well as being practical.  It shouldn’t feel like a second job you don’t need or want. So let me ask you -- is your current style showcasing your natural beauty – or not? While clothing should be practical, it should also capture the essence of who you are and what you want to portray to the world as an extension of your beautiful inner self.   
Is your closet full of old clothes you haven’t worn in years, but couldn’t be bothered to get rid of it even if it doesn’t fit right anymore?

Signs That It’s Time For A Professional Style Makeover: Part 3

Sign #3: Your Clothes Are Stuck in Another Decade
Would your closet be the perfect place to look for clothes for a "decades" costume party? If so, you are likely in need of a serious style makeover.
Yes, it is true that trends tend to come back around again, but they still need a modern update to truly stay with the times. If your clothes are screaming "costume" rather than "fashion," it's time to make some changes.
Now, we're not saying that retro style can't be fashionable; actually here are a few fun tips from a professional style consultant to help you rock past looks while still staying firmly planted in the present:
             Choose pieces that fit properly. Mom jeans may have been cool in the 90’s, and the high-wasted trend is definitely back in style, but the key difference is that modern versions are more slim-fitting and figure-flattering. If it looks like you could fit a diaper under your jeans, it's time to toss them in favor of some better-fitting options.    

             Keep your accessories simple. Excessive accessories may have been big in the 80s, but these days, it's all about simplicity when it comes to your accessories. By all means, enjoy that off-the-shoulder look, but keep your earrings small and delicate to avoid looking too Flashdance.            

             Enlist the help of a style consultant. Above and beyond your fashionable friends, consider calling us for a complimentary discovery session which would  be of great help when it comes to making over your wardrobe. Reach out!
