Beware of Bright Colors that Compromise your Executive Presence
Now that spring is here, lots of you are taking a look at your spring wardrobe wanting to add some brighter colors.
Here’s a question I’ve been answering a lot lately:
Q: How do I know if the brighter colors this season will work for me?
A: I was out shopping lately and yes the bright colors are coming out that is a sign of spring and summer. One thing I would mention is that just because the colors are bright and pretty doesn’t necessarily mean that these colors are for you. I just saw a girl at the bank today, she had a bright fuchsia top on, now mind you it looked nice on her but all I notice was the fuchsia top and not her face, it was way too bright for hair color and her skin coloring.
Here’s how to tell if a color works for you or against you: If you see the clothes before you see your face than it is probably not your color. You want the attention to go to your face and not your clothes.
After all 55% of first impressions are based on your appearance.
