The Science Behind Seasonal Coloring

If you've ever taken pictures of yourself wearing different colors, you know that wearing the wrong shades can make a huge impact on your appearance. Your seasonal coloring is what determines which hues your should or shouldn't wear, and I'm showing you the science behind this. I took several shots of myself in various colors to demonstrate the way different shades make you look better or worse.


On the left, I'm wearing a pink top that falls into the cool category. On the right, I'm wearing a peach top that falls into the warm category. If you compare how I look in each top, you'll notice a few things.
  • my skin looks drained of color in the pink top
  • the pink top stands out more than I do
  • the peach top brings out my natural coloring
  • I don't fade into the background in the peach top
Therefore, I look better in warm hues than cool ones. But let's see another example, just to be sure.


On the left, I'm wearing a white top that falls into the cool category. On the right, I'm wearing a sand colored top that falls into the warm category. Here's what you should see:
  • my teeth look more yellow in the white top
  • the white top takes over, pushing me into the background
  • the white top makes my skin look sallow and unhealthy
  • the bags under my eyes are more noticeable in the white top
  • the sand top brings out my natural warm coloring
  • the sand top makes my teeth look less white
This confirms what the science of seasonal color analysis teaches: that certain colors should not be worn on certain people.

If you're trying to decide between two colors and you don't know which looks best on you, here's what to look for:

With the right colors, your skin looks healthy and full of your natural coloring. Your teeth look whiter, the lines and wrinkles on your face are less noticeable, and your top doesn't get more attention than you do. When you're wearing the wrong colors, the opposite is true and you present an unhealthy, aged appearance.

Polka Dot Peplum

I don't know about you, but I'm SO ready for spring! Even though we had a mild winter this year, I'm looking forward to breaking out those lightweight pieces and fun colors! I incorporated a small dose of spring colors into my look today with this polka dot peplum top.

 

Since I wanted the focus of my outfit to be on the top, I kept the rest of my look simple by going with all black pieces and no jewelry or accessories.





Stretchy black pants and a pair of cut out heel sandals completed my look, making it simple, yet chic.

Top 5 Red Carpet Looks From The 2017 Golden Globes

Another awards show, another red carpet. That's the reason to watch awards shows, right? This year I paid extra close attention to what Hollywood's leading ladies were wearing, noting the colors, fit and textures of their dresses. I used the guidelines from my recently launched website, The Style Spectrum, to make (most of) my determinations. These are the 5 looks that got the highest marks from me, and why they caught my eye.

A woman with Kristin's delicate spring coloring should not usually wear black, at least not near her face. However, she looked stunning in her plunging neckline and sequin gown. It was fitted perfectly to her tiny frame, and drew attention to her waist. The only thing I would have liked to see is a gorgeous piece of bling dangling from her neck to really made her sparkle.

This yellow color looks amazing with Reese's mesmerizing blue eyes. Her soft pink lips keep her looking natural, and her dress draws attention to all the right places. Her choker is the perfect dose of dazzle, and she looks classy and elegant. Her hair looks lovely, but she could have softened the edges of her heart shaped face by letting her hair down a bit more.

While the off-the-shoulder trend is not as hot as it was last year, Thandie still rocked it like a true lady. Copper is going to be one of 2017's color trends, so the sequins at the bottom of her dress catapulted her look straight into the style books for this year. A simple diamond necklace was all she needed to complete her beautiful ensemble.

Technically, Felicity broke one of the main rules of style by wearing gold and silver together. But she made up for it with the way her jumpsuit accentuated her waist and how she kept her look simple. The low cut neckline was sexy without being trashy, and the ensemble fit her body really well.

 Zoe Saldana

At first, Zoe didn't make my list. Then I gave her a closer look and her gown really grew on me. While the ruffles seem a bit much at first glance, they're actually quite exquisite! The bow at the waist creates a more balanced body image, and the different textures come together wonderfully. This is how you do monochrome, even when the color of your dress isn't your best shade.
