Chizuka is a Winter. I knew it the second I saw her in the cobalt blue. The warm colors washed her out, but she is absolutely glowing in the cool jewel tones of Winter. I think once she starts adding those bolder colors into her wardrobe she will feel like a new woman! Chizuka definitely tends to naturally gravitate toward summer colors. She’s on the right track with the cool tones, but just needs to make them deeper and more vibrant to incorporate Winter. Chizuka, I especially know how it feels to be a mom of young children and feeling drab….then turning it all around with the right colors. It is so refreshing! I can’t wait to see your updates!

Metropolitan Gala 2015

Between my two young daughters (infant and toddler) and my clients, I have been too busy to write my posts on award shows and other subjects. I found this in my drafts from May…hahaha! Enjoy. I’m 1,000 percent sure there were other women I wanted to include in this post, but I’m going with what I have for now. I hope to get back to regular blogging sometime soon.

The Metropolitan Gala is always fun to watch to see who will go the extra mile in fashion just because they can. Fashion opinions on the outfits featured at the Gala range from whether the person was on theme or off theme, whether the outfit is “in”, whether the outfit is impressive, and whether the outfit is considered ugly or too much (even if the person is on theme). I for one, love seeing who is on theme or not, but invariably I always look at the colors they choose and if they are right or wrong based on their season. Here are my favorite looks from the Gala, based solely on COLOR.

Rachael

Today, Glowing Color features Rachael.

My name is Rachael, I’m a teacher I used to teach English as a foreign language and I’ve taught in South America – Argentina and Colombia and the middle east – Qatar and Europe – Spain and the UK – England and Scotland where I am from. I’m now back in Scotland,  Edinburgh where I went to uni and I’m training to become a high school teacher, teaching social studies and politics in high schools. After living a relaxed traveller lifestyle , I am now attempting to dress more smartly and like a professional but in my own style which is why I’m interested in colour analysis.

Rachael’s Color Interview:

What color do you wear the most? black, grey, and green

What color do you wear the least? light colours

In what color do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? I feel best in dark khaki green

In what color do you receive the most compliments? light colours like blues but perhaps that’s because I don’t often wear them.

Rachael is a Spring. She looks best in the light, warm portion of the color spectrum. She did not have many examples in these colors, so I think she will begin to notice a major difference after she goes shopping to incorporate more of these colors in her wardrobe. Note that she feels best in khaki green, which tends to be warm/muted. If she goes a little lighter and warmer (a green with more yellow than brown), she will begin to see the glow. The outfits she did have that fall under Spring could use a little tweaking in color, which I am including details of in her Color Shopping List. She also wants to play around with some different hair colors, so I sent some examples of that as well, as I think she has been going too cool/dark/ash blonde. It probably feels right to be drawn to the Winter colors since they are so bold of a contrast against her hair, but once she finds the exact Spring colors to bring out her own personal glow, the difference will be stark. My eye was drawn to her clothes first in the cooler colors, and I was easily able to rule those seasons out. I am so excited for her to see her Color Shopping List!

Linda

Today, Glowing Color features Linda.

Linda is a Human Resources Analyst from California, and her favorite thing to do is travel and take pictures.

Linda’s Color Interview:

What color do you wear the most? I wear mostly black and navy

What color do you wear the least? I hardly ever wear pastels

In what color do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? I think I look my best in black and darker pinks

In what color do you receive the most compliments? Recently, someone told me I look good in dark grey. But, I’ve also been told that I look very pale in the same color 🙂

Linda is a Winter. There was an obvious difference with Linda between the cooler and warmer colors, as the warmer colors washed her out. The colors of Summer showed some promise, but were still ultimately too light. When I saw Linda in the strong blue and green jewel tones of Winter, I saw her face glow. I looked at her first instead of her shirt colors. This is always an easy giveaway with the bolder Winter tones because it is easy to want to look at the colors of the outfit first. If the eye is drawn to your face first, you have a winner.

Erin

Today, Glowing Color features Erin.

“Hi I am Erin from Kentucky, a 35-year-old physician. In my spare time I enjoy running or being outside reading or with my dogs. I have typically identified with warmer colors for my make-up and to cover my rosacea, however, I am not drawn to those colors in clothing. In fact I had to use some of my husband’s dress shirts and sweaters for the photos.”

Erin’s Color Interview:

What color do you wear the most? black! Gray

What color do you wear the least? brown/yellow/orange/pastels

In what color do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? royal blue

In what color do you receive the most compliments? I wear neutral so often it is probably when I wear color such as royal blue or jewel tones.

Erin in cooler colors:

Erin BlackErin GrayErin WhiteErin RedErin RoseErin BlueErin Blue2Erin Aqua

Erin in warmer colors:

Erin TanErin MustardErin OrangeErin GarnetErin BurgundyErin Dark PurpleErin SageErin Forest Green

Erin is a Winter. For me, it was clear nearly immediately. The 2nd or so picture I opened was of Erin in black and she was sparkling in it. The rest of the pictures quickly confirmed, as her skin looks clear and beautiful in the cool colors, while the warm colors are washing her out a bit. Erin looks sharp and gorgeous in the deep, bold, cool tones of winter. Her Color Interview reflects the subconscious pull she had toward the correct colors which is great! This means Erin likely has a good foundation to start from with her existing clothes when she goes shopping.

Annie’s Color Interview:

What color do you wear the most? Black (but trying to get away from it)

What color do you wear the least? Pink, yellow

In what color do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? Burgundy/Maroon, Mint Green

In what color do you receive the most compliments? Mint, Blues, Greens (colors that bring out my eyes)

Annie in warmer colors:

Annie is an Autumn. Although she wears a lot of blacks, she stated she feels sexy/beautiful in burgundies and maroons which are classic Autumn colors. I would bet a lot of the cool compliments she has gotten with the blues and greens are due to the fact that they matched her beautiful eye color. Annie submitted photos in more cooler colors than warmer. I have some ideas of different warm tones she should seek out to liven up her glow a bit more.

Michelle is gorgeous! She sent some extra photos that I did not use on the blog with her hair down and she has such a striking look. Michelle’s season was pretty obvious to me with almost the first photo I saw. Michelle is a Winter. The warm colors wash her out, but the cool colors bring her beautiful brown eyes into sharp focus and flow against her dark hair.
