Are you of the mindset that your clothing color choices should go with or match your hair color? If so, you are not alone. I hear this all the time and most often I hear this from people who have chosen to go gray.
I believe your clothing color choices should go with you. In fact, I believe your own personal coloring should serve as the basis for all of your appearance-based color decisions including hair, makeup, clothing and accessories. That way we get to see your best, most vibrant and sparkling self.
The best way to reveal which colors look best on you is by having a color analysis. However, there are some steps you can do on your own to assess whether a particular color matches you. I share these steps with you in the video below.

Bottom line is — if your current hair color choice does not give off your best and you add on makeup, clothing and accessory color choices that also do not give off your best, you could be making yourself look duller, washed out and even older.
In my opinion, it is always best to match your hair, makeup, clothing and accessory colors to you so that we easily see the most vibrant and glowing you.
I hope this blog post inspires you to wear your authenticity!
