Most of all, I’m a big fan of color that suits a person’s coloring.
Do you know what your best colors are? If not, make 2012 the year you resolve to identify your best colors and then actually wear them. The reason? You’ll look younger, prettier, more energetic, better rested and happier. You’ll probably look smarter, too. (Why not?!) I even believe personally (though I have zero evidence to back this up) that we respond emotionally to our best colors. (For instance, the watermelon color in my logo thrills me every time I see it.)
What color makes you happy?
And why wait to get started? Experiment in the next few days with unexpected combinations of colors, just to get you underway in this endeavor. For inspiration, take a look at your favorite personal-style blogs (this image comes from a favorite of mine, Kendi Everyday), the built environment, and the natural world.
