I wrote about a new blog which looks at how to buy and wear clothes rather than just buying more a couple of posts back. I read this post on I won't wear sludge brown about rules for colours. I don't know anything about colour analysis, but when I put this outfit together (sticking to the rules for my 'soft' type) it definitely looked a lot better with the sludge brown scarf than with the colourful pashmina that I had planned to go with it. Looking distinctly manly in the second pic, but the brown blends with the hair and skin tone and makes my complexion look more even without makeup. Here is previous pic of said orange scarf and skin looking pretty drained and pale (despite tons of make up).
What do you think? Have you had your colours done? Do you shop with your colour swatches?
