What color is your White?
Few people can wear WHITE effectively. Creamy or softly grayed whites are often more flattering. WHITE attracts attention, so use it to spotlight an area you would like people to notice. It will simultaneously distract they eye from a color or style element that is not so good for you. I would like to quote a famous Image Consultant. Her name is Sandy Dumont, owner of The Image Architect. "Fashion writers and “experts” agree that white can now be worn year round. Pure white shirts have always been worn year round, but it was once “the rule” that a white suit could only be worn in the summer. Depending upon the shade of white, this may still make sense. For example, a stark white suit (or dress) worn in the middle of winter may stand out too much. A suit in “winter white” would look more at home in the dark of winter. Of course, if you have a good eye, you might add black accessories with your stark white suit and get away with “blinking white” in the dead of winter. Sometimes we must respect our natural surroundings when choosing colors, so that harmony is also achieved. That is not to say that we must revert back to the dreadful habit of wearing colors that match our surroundings with each changing season so we blend in and feel safe." Now is the time to check your wardrobe. What color is your white? - Can you clean up the cluster :-).
