It can be very difficult to determine what looks best on you especially when your favorite color doesn’t match your skin tone. In an effort to make this all so much easier to figure out I am doing a post on each seasonal color. Enjoy finding out what your colors are!! If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please do not hesitate to ask.

Some additional considerations:
- Seasonal Colors: Some colors are more appropriate at certain times of year than others. Like the pastels of yellow, are usually associated with summer, while autumn colors are rust, brown, green, and burgundy. Wearing rust in the summer, or light yellow in the fall looks out of place.
- Think contrast. Try one light element with two dark, or one dark with two lights, such as a charcoal suit, white shirt and red tie, or tan suit with yellow shirt and green tie. Or Khaki pants and a dark blue shirt.
- Color Value: Dark colors recede thus making you look thinner, and light colors project, which tends to bulk you up. Dark colors are more formal than light.
Your skin tone is the most important factor in determining the colors that look best on you.
