Summer Colors: Finding the right shades for you: Rocking the look
As summer approaches, it's time to start shedding those heavy layers of clothing and busting out tanks, and shorts, and summer dresses in all the colors in the rainbow. Wearing color, especially bright colors, tends to indicate to others without you saying a word, that you are more of a happy, upbeat, more youthful seeming, and approachable person (whether true or not) vs. those who have a tendancy to always wear just darker clothing no matter the season. However, just as not every clothing style can look great one everyone, the same is true for different colored clothing.
FINDING THE RIGHT SHADES FOR YOU
One of the first steps to finding clothing colors that are more suited towards you, is to figure out your undertone and whether or not it is considered cool or warm. By doing this, you can find shades that play up your natural coloring. If you don't already know what it is, you might have experienced this very understanding when you worn a certain color in the past and all of sudden it seemed like everyone was complimenting you. Find your color tone and colors that work for you below.
Now, having figured out whether you're more of a cool or warm color woman, don't get so bogged down in "having to only wear certain colors," From now until you die, you can wear what you want and what makes you happy, but using the charts can help you select colors, or shades of your favorite colors that will really play up your skin, make-up, and hair color, and make you stand out.
ROCKING THE LOOK
When you are looking at the pictures below, pay attention to the women who are wearing them. Notice their skin tones and how they work with the colors they are wearing. This should visually help you to understand how different colors really do work with different skin tones and how that can help you to shape your colorful summer wardrobe. Also, the easiest way to put together a colorful outfit is to view the chart above that lists colors that work well for either your warm or cool tones, and then simply mix and match!
