Welcome to the Wonderful World of Color - Part 1

Choosing Colors that are Right for You

Colors are a part of everything! There are thousands of colors (and shades of color) to choose from. It can be a daunting task to find the colors that are perfect for you.

There are two types of colors: warm colors and cool colors. Warm colors, like yellow, orange and red offer a sense of energy and excitement. Examples are the sun, red fire trucks and carrots. These colors can literally be the life of the party! They are full of energy and excitement. Cool colors, like blue, green and purple, are more relaxing and help you feel calm and peaceful. Examples are lakes, trees and plums. They are like taking a breath on a tranquil day and chilling out.

So, what’s best for you? Your skin has undertones. Look at the veins on your wrist. If they are greenish, then you lean cool. Bluish? Cool is the ultimate. If they are difficult to distinguish, you are neutral and able to wear both warm and cool colors. Below is a graphic of warm and cool colors. For more information, check out this article from Tailor Bros. entitled “Clothing color wheel: an Easy-to-understand explanation.”

In Part 2, we’ll explore neutrals and color harmony; so, stay tuned!
