Colour not to miss this season


I am often asked about the colour choices one should pick to look stylish and fashionable. Putting on the right colour of the season helps you build the right impression about yourself among the people you interact with every colour has its own significance and meaning. According to Marie Claire, a fashion expert, dressing colour choice says everything about your character and personality. Every season has its appropriate colours depending on the prevailing circumstances and the weather condition.



Valentine season

I view valentine season as a time for people to express love to the ones they care about and let the world read it out from their dressing. In this season, everything with touches of red and black is acceptable. If you put on a hot red dress, it’s totally acceptable. Men don’t necessarily have to look for red suits but can put on small touches of red such as red neckties and belts. Purple is a royal colour which signifies fiery passion. It is certainly mysteriously charming and entertaining during the valentine season. When going out for anything romantic, whether a candlelight dinner, a moonlight walk or a twilight outing, purple is always one of the best dress choices. Men are generally romantic in black suits on the valentine season. Little black dresses are becoming common official dresses but I guarantee you that they are still trendy in the season of love. Designers are now putting animal prints on little dresses to make them sexier. Angelina Jolie once said that she never goes out for without a little black dress.

Winter dresses, summer spring and fall colours

Your colour selection at any season should match the colour of your skin, your hair and your body type. Blue-based colours and dark shades are great collections for winter seasons. I always get jealous in winter when I see people in beautiful black and white cloths. Summer on the other hand is a season for bright colours including purples and pastel blues. Spring is a season for yellow colours. In the spring season, I like apricot and coral colours to reflect the nature around me. I always spare my sludgy greens and orange dresses for the fall season.

Taking care of your skin

According to Kat Shapland, an international award winning beauty journalist, the best definition of beauty is your skin. All skin colours are unique and beautiful, but the way you maintain yourself brings the whole difference. Everyone deals with some skin issues at some point in their live, whether its ski sensitivity, oiliness, dryness, acne, wrinkles or discoloration. Once you figure out your skin type, you need to employ appropriate maintenance by applying the best treatment techniques. Combinations of skin maintenance tactics include routine face washing, regular cleansing, rinsing and hot water treatment. Toners help you attain achieve a balanced skin colour by adding the necessary coloration ingredients and essential skin minerals. Apply a moisturizer if you have a dry skin and exfoliate your regularly.

Putting skin make-up helps you cover up for dents and bad contours on the skin to create a beautiful smooth look. However, the makeup should be always removed to free your skin and prevent bacterial accumulation. Your dress colour should be closely aligned with the colour of your skin.

Combining your colour matches with your hair

Steve Allen once said that the hair is always real no matter who has it Hair is a universal beauty gift granted to everyone. Your hair color type and style is always important in determining your dress colour of the season.

Blondes – Blondes look very beautiful in bright warm colours. I tell my blonde colleagues to consider colours such as orange, rust, cream or orange. Platinum blondes are always stunning in blue shades.

Brunettes – Light brunettes should pick on saturated colours instead of pastels. Jewel tones such as sapphire blue and emerald green are the best choices for light brunettes. Warm brunettes look great in orange-red, charcoal grey and navy blue clothes

Black hair – Black haired people always look stunning on cobalt blue, royal purple and rid-engine red dresses. They also fit well in universal black dresses including saree-length clothes and little black dresses. Redheads -I have a redhead friend who looks fabulous on green and ivory colours. Redheads should avoid yellows since they don’t match well with them.

For a modern sophisticated look, wear the colour of the season which matches your hair or which has a striking contrast. Redheads are fit very well in red attires while brunettes look superb with golden yellow pieces.
