You today and I would like to show you how the practical part of the color analysis work and a Z I told you before. Units on silver and golden told Scar. You see, you place yourself in front of a mirror as close as possible. You need to have a good day light, so preferably no direct sunlight. And then I don't wear any makeup and just start in front of the Europe, comparing the silver and the gold tones. I always start looking at the chin line first, so try not to look at the color. Try to concentrate on the face and what the color reflects onto your face. This can take a few minutes or go back and forth and really take time, because this is the basis for the following analysis. We just want to see which colored light brings on your face so I can see that would cilia Here, for example, I see that the golden tone, which is the yellowish color, so the very warm tone brings like a reflection on her face that makes her chill lion look green and skin doesn't look so even And then when we compare it with silver, I see instantly that her Children nine is very defined and the skin tone looks very even. And then I go, well, a little more towards the lip area so I can see on top off her upper lip. There are still some shadows coming up, so the skin doesn't look this even and little sparkles may come up that I usually not here and with silver it's absolutely the contrary. She looks fresh and the skin looks really invent And now we look at the eyes in the area below the eyes. And also here we see with gold, which is the yellowish home a little circles come up that she doesn't really have. And with silver the area under the eyes looks very fresh and also the eyes look clear and the eye sparkle more so that the white of the eye comes clear. Aware us with gold, I white looks a little more yellowish, so this is the first step and now we know that she is a brutal color type. We will continue to compare the two members off the family that coltan, which is sama in winter So on this side we have the summer and on the right side we have the window. Both are cool, but this test intense to show us. If Sylvia it's more powerful. Primary color is very contrast e or if she needs more softer version because what we want to reach is that people look in her eyes and say, Wow, you look great today and not wow, what a what a powerful royal blue flowers in this way too intense. So even if she doesn't like all of these colors here, we test isn't softer or more contrast. Diversion. And as I told you before, in this every night, it's always important. The combination, the personal combination of skin tone, eyes and hair color So not every some summer type can wear all the colors. There will always be some favorites, but let's start and see ourselves. So this is a very, very boring pink. This is probably not gonna be the favorite of Sylvia Sportal, so I skipped that quick. This is a real primary winter rate, and I would say it is cool told so in this case, this part is okay, but it's way too now. for Sylvia, so it's overwhelming. From here we have a soft summer cream, which looks lovely, so this will definitely be one off Sylvia Sylvia favorites. And then we have Royal Blue from the winter. I think it's too intense, but I really love this soft, grayish blue version of some type. And always remember, it will do exactly the same. When you go shopping, always think about the silver and the gold. Then it's very easy for you to tell if something is in your color range or not. Regarding yellow and red, there is to say that ready and those bring the readiness out of face. So if you have a little readiness around the Austin, you shouldn't skip yellow. Wasn't rates probably, but this is too intense anyway. But 11 and purple tones. A beautiful facility. A. So they are really great. We'll get more into that later definition of the perfect colors. This is a wintergreen which works will. I mean, general, I would say that I won't preferred a softer version because we are testing the dominance here. We're testing which policies and Sylvia belongs to, but since she can wear green so beautiful, she can stretch that a little bit, go to the winter type and correct one of her favorite colors. But in general, I would say the softer version makes her really, really looking great. And then the next time there is soft low. It's not a favorite because yellow doesn't make her eyes shine so, and it also brings the redness the redness a little bit. So Mogens is usually 100% winter color. But since Sylvia's hat tone gets a little bit off this salt and pepper look, which is very beautiful, I think she can mix some accessories in Magenta off USIA is, the Americans would say. But I think this would really look great, especially in a combination when she softens it with her perfect Greek tone. I think this really looks really lovely, and this is for me. The 100% signed that Sylvia is a stomach time because this is very so bluish gray and it looks like you put a layer of powder over, but it's just really beautiful, and you look in her eyes and you say this is for 100% color. I just wanted to show you one more scene So I draped all the very contrast winter colors around. Soon you're here, and I think you can see that they really overpowering so kind of a whelming. Don't you agree, Syria Touch. Now I'm gonna show you the very best colors. So this is the summer palette. I feel more comfortable and I can see you smile when I when you see your face with your more soft this tones. I mean, there are many more. These scarves only intended to do the analysis. But now we can 100% say that Sylvia is a soft tone somewhere type. We can continue to do the personality style so state you. 5. 3 The 1st Impression: Let's look at this very interesting study coming from the University of Columbia. First, you've probably heard this before. The first impression is being made in only seven seconds. This is not about being superficial, but no matter how we act or what we say or how we express ourselves, people will always judge us from our appearance first. And if we observe ourselves, we know that this is true, right? I have had experiences when I visited a course, and it took me a couple of minutes until I could concentrate on the content off the spoken word because I was so distracted by non verbal signals. According to this study, 55% of our Karisma, the first impression we make is based on non verbal signals we're sending, and that includes our body language, the facial expression, the eye contact with the audience, Theodore sometimes ah, voice and the apparel, the way how we addressed. So now we know that the first impression is being made in seven seconds, and we all know sometimes there is no second chance for the first impression. So why shouldn't we make the very best one 6. 4 What is Image?: Have you ever asked yourself what image is one part of it, which we want to talk about is our appearance. First of all, it's not about fish entrance or wearing a mask or costume. What's most important is what's inside. We want to create a balance and harmony of our inner being and our appearance. Don't we all want to come across as an authentic person? And also we want to be as attractive as possible? Right? That is the goal off image consulting to be authentic, highlight the best in us and feel good about it. People will feel that, and in this way we will be able to bring our message across at the right time, and you will get a lot of positive feedback. Let's move over to the next topic. Why Color and image consulting 7. 5 WhyColor+ImageConsulting?: why color and image consulting? Because it is simply the way to look your absolute best. Based on your personal skin complexion, your hair and eye color, there are colors you should wear. The four types are called spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each season has their own set of colors that will look best with your personal skin tone. Once you have found out which kala type you are, you should wear the very best out of these colors based on your individual complexion. Together with your figure type, which can be either apple payer, hourglass or rectangle, it determines the colors and cuts that will flatter you most. You will have no more costly mistakes will be able to shop with focus and according to your individual lifestyle, needs your personal sense of style and your budget. This will allow you to create color combinations that no one else can wear the same way like you and create your personal appearance. And the great advantage of knowing your color type is that it lasts your whole life long. Wouldn't it be great to never buy a wrong piece of closing anymore? But on Lee, your very best colors So let's go deeper into the world of colors and how you can figure out which ones fit you best. 8. 6 Where does it actually come from 01 25 2016: Where did the dye apology off the seasons actually come from? It all started at the beginning off the 20th century, when a Swiss born out professor, Johannes Written, asked his students to paint harmonious color wheels. He very soon noticed that his students were choosing colors for the artworks that were related to their personal skin complexion, hair and eye color. Professor Etten created the phrase off the intuitive sense for colors. After several years of studies and observation, he published his findings. In his book, titled The Art Off Color Professor. ITN suggested that people belong either to one off the Four Seasons spring, summer, autumn or winter. The typology of the seasons was born, and this season on theory was soon accepted in the fashion industry off the sixties and the seventies were is still popular today, or them and spring a generally warm toned and winter and summer have a cool, bluish undertone. Let's go ahead, and the next chapter I will tell you why is that 9. 7 What makes a color YOUR color?: I can't imagine you are already curious how a person's skin can be cool toned, a warm toned as we heard the collar type is determined by the skin, eye and hair color. The skin tone, though, plays the most decisive role. The basis on the tone of the skin is genetically given. It is predetermined because of Hamel glow being which is the color off the black. And it influences whether we have cool or warm tone skin. Also, we all have carrot ing, and it is also genetically influenced. Which amount of carrot in will be safe from our nutrition. This combination off Hamel globe in and carrot ing creates a warm or cool tone skin. We all have both, but one is predominant after reaching the age of 10. The personal color analysis can be done since the pigmentation at that point will last our whole lifetime. Even though your skin may get something and become darker, your unique color type does not change. So what makes a color warm and another one cold callus become warmed you to a mixture with yellow and red, respectively. Through both of these shades, callus become cool due to a mixture with blue. It is all about the mixing ratio and the nuances off the shades. So, for instance, it is possible to create a very warm blue tone and the very cool red color. 10. 8 Why do I need this?: Why do I need to know if my skin is warm toned? A cool toned? Wouldn't you agree with me if I say we all want to be the best? Me I can be with all my years of experience having analysed in consulted hundreds of people , I guarantee you that when you wear your personal colors, it will make you look younger, healthier and slimmer. That's a great promise, isn't it? I can guarantee you that the wrong colors will make you look pale. Accent wait lines and circles under your eyes. Poor's might look bigger. Freckles and readiness may stand out more and the most important thing. You may find that you look older or that the color pops out and makes your face fade into the background. Where is wearing the right colors will do exactly the opposite. The right colors will accentuate the best about your complexion. Minimize lines, shadows and circles and make your eyes sparkle. Also, your skin will look more evenly and your skin your face will look more defined. Besides that, you will have no more costly mistakes. You will be able to shop focused according to your personal sense of style and budget, and you will save time and money in the process. 11. 9 The best Color in the whole World: best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you. It has never, Bean said, better. So let's take a closer look at the kala types. You already know that autumn and spring are warm, toned, mixed with yellow, where it's winter and summer have a cool, bluish undertone. I've also once heard about the theory of variations for each type. For example, a soft summer type or deep summer type or warm summer type, which would make a total off 12 kala types. Let's keep it very short and simple, not complicated. For me, the very best way is to find out if you're having a cool or warm skin undertone. Then we determine your personal color season, and we go from there and determine what your very best special colors are. And this is based on your personal complexion, off skin, hair and eyes. And the combination of these many years of experience showed me that this is the very best and easiest way by the wage. The calla types do not have anything to do with the temperature of each season. For example, the summer type doesn't have a warm by the very cool skin undertone. The name of each color season is inspired by the look of nature in each season, like the colors of the leaves in autumn, a lashing golden or the green off the spring type is very warm and yellowish, like the first grass in spring or the summer. Colors are very powdery, like shades of water color. So are you ready? Let's take a closer look at the different seasons. 12. 10 Spring: Let's start with spring as the first seasonal type.

Also, you can download the complete course as a reference book at the very end and use the printed colors as your first color chart for future shopping tours. But now it's finally time to start, and here is how it works. So how can you do your color analysis? You just find a good place with a lot of daylight in your house. You get in front of your mirror like get a mirror at the grocery store that you can put on on the floor and just put a chair in front. And then you have the mural in case you have died here, ticket back. Cover it with a natural color like a beige tone or light grey. So this is what I'm doing here right now. Do not be extracted. I don't wear any foundation or lipstick. Dismay. Distract you and your eye and then try to get a golden scarf in the silver scarf. In case you don't have it, you can take a very warm orange tone and maybe a very pure magenta tone. So, like these two, for example, taken magenta and you can do an orange, but battle would be gold and silver, and then you do this multiple times. You sit in front of the mirror in the daylight and you observe your skin and try not to look at the color off the scarf. This is not easy will take a couple of minutes, but you Onley look at your face and what the silver brings onto your face. I always started the gene line, and I go back and forth like 2030 times. Take time for this process, and you will be able to discover what brings a healthier shadow onto your face, which Callum makes your eyes sparkle more. Sometimes you get a like a glossy look in your eyes and you look like you're getting a fever or you're not not not healthy, you know lines and then freckles may stand on war with either silver or gold. Just go back and forth as many times as you need, and you will see after a couple of minutes you will see a very big difference. The system First step, and then we go over to the next one. To start your color analysis, please find yourself a place with a lot of natural daylight. Make sure that there is no dial. Direct sunlight, please. Then place yourself clothes in front of a mirror in order to remove distractions. Please cover your clothes with an off white sheet or shirt and do not wear jewelry in case you have colored or died here, please cover it with an off white or light grey scarf.

Compliments will confirm your choice 17. 15 Color Analysis how it works enhancedAudio: so I would like to show you the different colors. Seasons at a glance we talked about already there. Spring and autumn are warm toned colors mixed with a lot of yellow. Where is summer and winter? A cool tone color seasons mixed with a lot of blue and very cool undertones. So these scarves just for analysis each season, offers you hundreds of different jade's. This is just to show you, as I said in the presentation already, then always keep in mind the color seasons. The names do not have anything to do with the temperature off each season. The names are only inspired by the look on each season. So, for example, summer does not have a warm on the tone, but a very cool. When you swing on the beach and you look at the ocean, it looks like this flurry kind of powdery look off water colors in a painting or autumn, for example, is like the lush leaves all the spices like not make and mustard, so always keep that in mind doesn't have anything to do with the temperature. So once you determine when you probably did already, if silver or gold looked better on the skin. Let me mention just one more time, we said, Try to not look at the scar, not at the color. Only concentrate on your face and what the color does to your face. So if the chin line looks more defined with gold or silver, look at the skin tone with which color doesn't look more. Even the look at your lip line. Look at your eyes, which makes your eyes more sparkle. So really, take your time for this process. So once it determined that gold looks much better on you, you will be a warm tone color type, so this can be either spring or order, whereas when silver looks much better on you, you are definitely a cool Cal attack, which is summer all winter. So let's let's pretend that gold looked better use. Or in this case, you just have to compare the warm tone types. And this is just for analysis and always keep in mind. I said this before that according to your personal combination off skin, hair and eyes, not all of these colors will flatter you, but this is just to determine what's the dominance. You can either autumn or spring. But of course, when you find out that yellow is one of your special tones, you probably can use the warmed home yellow from both of the seasons. But we want to see. Is it the more intense version that you need in order to shine and sparkle? Or is it the light of version? So when you compare these two two colors and I put a least on the presentation, which ones you should compare in order to say easy either autumn or spring. So, for example, let's I just use this light brown tone. It's like a warm golden brown tone and compare it with the very lush doctor Rome before him . Do this. Also in front of this mural, as close as you can get in the daylight and take your time for this process, which looks better on you. So the same is for silver. Just compare the summer tones and the window tones. Do not look at the colors. Just see which one makes you sparkle, and it's kind of highlighting you and which one might be too intense for your complexion because what we want to reach is that people say while you look very great today and not Wow, what a blouse, You know. So this is this. I wish you good luck with the determination of your palace season. 18. 16 How to use your color chart: when you go on your first shopping tour.

I forced myself to go home and sleep over it if it doesn't go out of my mind. And I checked in my closet that it will be a great addition then this piece is meant to be for me and I can go and get it. But sometimes with a little bit of distance, I didn't even think about it the next day because I knew it was not a 100% piece. So I saved time and money for something that is just not perfect, and I would have regretted later. 20. 18 Body Types: in this next chapter, we're going to talk about the different body types. Let's face the truth. Very few people have perfectly proportioned bodies. The only difference is that well dressed people always dress according to their body type. What you choose to wear needs to be flattering for your shape at all times. Despite every seasonal trend and despite what you like or what you don't like, we can either complain and wish that we had a different body or weaken dress appropriately and streamline our lovely bodies to create balance. But before that, you'll need to a certain which body type you tend towards, irrespective off your height. Here are the main four body types the rectangle, the pair, the apple in that hourglass shaped body. Depending on where you research, those shapes may go by other names like Triangle, diamond or even round. In either case, when you see the shape that resembles yours, it should be a no brainer. The end goal should be to balance your proportions, and this can be achieved with fit, style and color when you are well proportioned and relatively lean, but you do not have a lot of curves you will be probably a rectangle or straight body type . You will want to create an hourglass bigger and those curves to keep your feminine. You can best do that by wearing belts toe except with your waist. You can also benefit from wearing blouses with ruffles in the just area to create illusion off a large chest and wavy skirts. Let's look at the pear shaped body. When the wits of your torso is smaller than the width of your hips, you will be probably a pear shaped body type.

Pointed toes are best, but round toast platforms and chunky use can work to. However, heels with ankle straps or those that come up on the ankle should either be totally avoided or worn with caution, depending on your legs size.

The best fabrics for an EPA bully type are those that have substance, lots of room and skim your curves. Met Jersey is one of the best fabrics, while cotton wool blends and this cozy also work very good for this body time.

Also cashmere in the evening you shining satin brocade, lurex and LeMay. Be careful if you are a spring type, though, because these fabrics could look to cool toned on you about pattern.

When it comes to jewelry and accessories. You love to be creative and try new accessories that can variety. Sometimes you left combined fashion jewelry with real gemstones.

My recommendation to you, your hair and makeup with generally follow your closing styles, both bold and different. Just be careful as a spring type because these colors are too loud and could drown your delicate complexion. The pure dramatic type sometimes seems a big aloof and has to make the first move. 30. 29 Sexy Alluring: Let's talk about the sexy, alluring, personally type next. First of all, a pure version off. This personality style is very rare and should, least of all in your work life not be freely expressed. If your personality style contains sexy alluring, be sure that just a very little bit adds zest to your style. The goal should be to refine your style. Then it can be most attractive. We will talk about the work environment in this chapter, and there are a couple of basic rules you should be aware off if you want to be sexy but in a respectable, adequately dressed way. First of all, if your figure allows it, your skirts can be a little shorter. But make sure it doesn't ride up too much when you sit down. In this case, less is not more. Be critical, and jack in front of a mirror which length is the most flattering to you Always focus on one. I catch a poor outfit. Make sure that the Dekel tay is not too low When wearing a short skirt. Your legs are an eye catcher. Hi, Let them with trendy pantyhose, also go for quality when it comes to jewelry. One classy bracelet is much more attractive than 10 clacking Bangles. Less is more. When it comes to nail polish, choose light to medium neutral tones. Don't go for aggressive, glaring red for your daytime makeup. Choose unobtrusive makeup colors. If your hair allows it, you can have curly wild hair or even a long, wavy main if it doesn't distract you in your job. Also, highlights come very nice. According to your colors. Blond or red would look great on you. Reserve extreme high heels and over knee boots for special spare time occasions. Mitt heeled pumps, boots off booties in your colors or animal prints are grated work and give you the refined special look. 31. 30 The Perfect Wardrobe: Now let's talk about how you can get your perfect wardroom. Did you know that most people are wearing only 20% off their clothes 80% of the time? Is your closet full bursting almost. But you feel you have nothingto where many women have this problem and I headed many years ago to and we are going to change this. Now I will show you how you can put together a wardrobe that is tailor made for you. But don't worry, I do not mean that it should wipe out and give every single piece away. But I want to encourage you to choose focused what to keep and complemented with special pieces that make 100% sense for you. What I am doing regularly and I recommend, is toe all my friends and clients. Please check out your closet once a year to get the overall picture, what you have, what needs to go, what should stay and what just maybe needs to be altered and what you need to look for when you go shopping the next time. So let's check out the simple steps off wardrobe inspection in very practical steps. I promise this will be fun for you. So please go in your walk in closet for me and imagine you do not know it. It is a boutique that you visit for the very first time. So please make time like warmed 1.5 hours and create some space to do this water of inspection. Maybe you want to ask. A friend will give you honest feedback. Best would be if this friend is in your same color range. So the best also will be you take out every single piece and put it on the bed or floor in the meantime so that your closet is completely empty. We gotta create three sticks now, three piles. One is gonna be clothing that will stay. That is perfect for you according to color and style. One stack is gonna be things that will go away that need to go. And the 3rd 1 is for closing. That needs to be cleaned, altered. Now, please take out every single piece one by one, and ask yourself in front of a mirror of the following questions. Is this piece of closing your perfect color? Is it in your seasonal color range? Is it your cut and your style also checked the pattern. Is it according to your personality style? Does it need to be cleaned, or does it need to be altered if the answer is yes, please put it aside on one off the stakes that we discussed before for things that need to be done. It's really a bad feeling to see this piece every morning, but you cannot wear it and combine it with other things because it's just not ready. This takes time and makes you feel miserable. So then ask yourself, Is this piece of closing your current size? If you don't know, please dried on. Even if you have to try on every single piece that we're going through now, please do it. If it doesn't fit and it's too big or too small, give it away. You want to dress the body that you have now, so do not wait until you lose weight and speaking off clothes that are too big. You don't want to fit in them again anyway, right? So even if you have only a few pieces left after we're finished with this, do it. If the clothes do not fit, I'm sure you haven't warned them a long time and you cannot wear them anyway. Then ask yourself, Have you warned this piece of garment in the last 1 to 1.5 years? If you haven't also give it away? One exception would be an evening dress. But be radical because the chances are very low that you will ever wear an evening gown you haven't worn the past 18 months. So when an invitation comes up, you will be more likely. Go and buy a new outfit. And then the last question you ask yourself is, Would you spend money on this piece? So would you really buy this piece off clothing today? And I think you're got feeling will pretty soon tell you if it is a good piece for you or if it needs to go? There is no single occasion on this planet to look bad, so please discharge every unflattering piece of clothing. And here's a helpful trick. When you are having problems giving away close, you have sorted out. Put them in a suitcase or in another closet in the basement. When you do not even think about this for like six months you can give them away with good conscience or bring them, maybe to a consignment store and make a bit of money with it. I personally did this for many years, and I never, ever missed a single piece. And I never went down to take something back that I have sorted out this way and one last word to hoard us. If you have too many duplicates off something like 50 navy blue shirts, these are simply too much. And let's be honest, I'm sure you're always wearing your favorite two or three ones. It will simplify your life and give you peace of mind to have your very best pieces off your favorite clothes in good condition and also speaking about accessory shoes, belts, scarves in the wrong colors. They should be given away. You will see simplicity is the key Now. You should have two stacks left, one stack of clothes that need to be cleaned, altered and the other stack with the good clothes that are a good fit according to your color cut style and fit. So now I want you to start putting bag every piece of your wardrobe, but this time, please organize them in groups and each group collar wise, from white cream on the left to yellow green brown, a terra to black on the right side in each group. And this is how this works best. If you create a section each for tops, blazers, jackets, cardigans also for pains, skirts, dresses and so on, make sure that all hangers are hanging in the same direction in your closet and, if possible, also line up your handbags and shoes color wise so that every single piece you own is visible. You wear what you see, so also put all your scars and pashminas in a shelf on top of each other. Or get a scarf organizer like this one. You can see in the picture where you can store them hanging the same A's for bail so that you can see everything when combining. And now you can add a few pieces that you are not 100% sure they are your color, but you just feel you need them because they are basics like your black pair of pains or a dark grey basic skirt. Very important is that you are very strict about your tops, so everything you're wearing close to your face should be in your perfect colors. Only one word about storing Please do not store closing plastic covers from the cleaners. This is inappropriate and does not protect your closing. On the contrary, plastic attracts dust and the fiber cannot breathe so fabrics could start to smell bed and white pieces can turned yellowish. Also, please do not leave your clothes on the wire hangers from the cleaners. You cannot wear pants that were stored this way because they are just rumpled and you never get rid of the hangar marks on the shoulders of your cashmere cardigan. So please buy soft hangers that support the shoulder part of your clothes and will keep them in shape, especially blouses, tops, dresses and knitwear made of jersey and silk. Also get special hangars for your pants and skirts. It will pay off, they will stay in shape, and you don't have to get them dry clean so often. Also for your shoes. Always clean them before you put them back in the closet and always use shoe stretchers so you can enjoy them for a long time. There's nothing worth in a shabby looking shoe. Now we're going to make a shopping list of things that you really need. But first, I want you to make a water bliss to see the items that you already own in your personal colors. This looks like this least here. You can download this in this in the section and complimented and add additional columns. Whatever you need to make it your customized version, Please write down every item off closing that you have. Start with the color, then the material and the style begin with the basics, such as jackets, skirts, pants and dresses. This will help you to easily find out what is missing and then, secondly, write down what you really need in order to create combinations. Also, do not forget to think about underwear for your outfits. Maybe you need special underwear like Spanx or a low cut bra for a certain evening dress. So do not forget about this and, uh, have your water blissed handy when you go shopping 32. 31 Create your own Look Book: a very helpful thing to organize your wardrobe and for future shopping tourists is to create your own look book. You will see you will love it when you come home with a new piece of closing mix and match it with the pieces that you already own. As I mentioned before, I always make sure when I consider to buy a new piece that it will have at least three friends in my closet. So when you come home with a new blazer blouse, take out pains, belts, scarves, purses, shoes, jewelry. Put it on your bed and create a couple of complete outfit combinations and take pictures off them. With this method, you can create your own look book on your mobile phone or even printer looks out, and you will make quick decisions in the morning, even when you are in a hurry and don't have to sink long about combinations. When you go shopping, always make sure that you have your list with your needs handy and also the photos off your wardrobe, which is your look book. Now it is much better to plan and watch out for pieces you really need and buy a better quality peace than to do impulsive purchases. They sum up and become very costly on the long run. So when you are looking for a blouse to combine with, for example, a special skirt, have the picture off a skirt taken in good daylight on your mobile phone? Sometimes it's hard to remember all the colors off your clothes at home. This will help you to decide if new pieces will really fit as combination partners. You will see when you are organizing your wardrobe. This way, you will always have an over few, and it is very easy toe update your looks from year to year, and sometimes it only takes one new scarf or another piece of accessory to create a complete new look. 33. 32 The 7 Rules to Shop Wisely: I want to share with you the seven rules to shop wisely from now on. It will only take you a few minutes to check out a store when you shop with your colors. So let's look at rule number one. Look good when you go shopping. It's not on Lee much more fun. You will be able to have better judgment when you addressed carefully. Also, close will fit better when you're wearing the right underwear and shoes. Secondly, check the colors in good daylight. When you see, for example, of red dress in a shop, it can be very hard to see if the color is cool toned or warm toned in the artificial light . So try to find a daylight place or step outside and put the whole color chart on top. This is sometimes the only way to find out if it's your perfect color. Rule number three by the most clothes for the part of your life that takes most of your time, spent the most money on these pieces. A good quality placer may be costly, but it will enhance your complete wardrobe and one word to combinations. You will have more combination options if you have more tops than bottoms, rule number four by your colors When you see them. The fashion industry offers us for collections per year, and nowadays you get almost every style throughout the whole year. But still, when you are for example, in autumn, you will probably still find the greatest choice off your warm and lush tones during the autumn season. But not every year. Earth tones are trendy, so it's probably good to buy when the fish and trained office your personal colors take the advantage. In this way, you will always be ableto wear your perfect colors and get over seasons when the fashion industry is offering only pastel tones. Rule number five don't buy impulsively. Most people tend to buy duplicates of close. They already have by the close you really need First stick to your shopping list and you will have the freedom to say yes to that very special, extravagant piece you maybe will find tomorrow. That is exact your color you in style and the perfect completion to your wardrobe. Rule number six. Learn to say no. Stay away from clearance sale. I know this sounds hot, but stay away from clear and sail unless it is definitely your color. The best bargain is a waste. If it doesn't, 100% fled you, on the other hand, focusing on my colors. Help me make very good bargains because that orange sweated letter jacket from last year's collection will just fit great and doesn't have a date on it. So keep in eye on fashion trends, but build your personal wardrobe no matter what the fashion industry offers. If you're lucky to find a boutique owner, that is the same color type is you. Then go for it. This shop will most likely offer a great variety off your colors. Rule number seven. Here's a little checklist before you go to the changing room in general. When you go shopping, make it your teen that it will only take 10 minutes to check out a store. Go and find your size first, then head for your colors. Take some pieces out. Check if the cut and pattern is your personality style, then feel the fabric and see if it is flattering for your body type and for the occasion you want to wear it for then check the label concerning material and care Onley. Then go and try it on. This only takes a couple of minutes, and you have to go to the changing room. Only one time I started to shop online when I found the brain that I knew is offering my styling colors as a test. You can order two sizes and see which one fits best. If you're lucky, you can stay with this brand for many years, and lastly, find yourself a good tailor who can alter your clothes if it's hard to find clothes for your figure. Even expensive designer clothes do not look good when they don't fit correctly. Always remember, quality comes before quantity, and when you have ah, few good quality pieces like here, you see 10 pieces. You can create more than 50 outfits with, so always keep that in mind when buying stuff. And, uh, I'm sure you wanna have a few more pieces every year, right? So concentrate on the very best ones. I hope this was helpful and your closet is organized and you know what to look for when you are planning your next shopping tour. 34. 33 Thank you: congratulations.
