Dressing for Skin Tone

Apr 11, 2011 / By Yvadney Davis for Typef.com

There are no hard and fast rules for style, but it’s a different story when it comes to wearing color. Whatever your complexion, some colors will make you look sickly while others will bring your skin to life. Yes, it’s easy to cling to boring black, but why not create a fashion rainbow just for you that will make dressing to impress easy?

Get Under Your Skin

Knowing your skin and understanding its undertones is the first step. There are simple tests such as looking at the color of your veins, your eyes, your hair. See if the undertone is warm (yellow & peach) or cool (pink & red). The “Daily Mail” suggests holding a cream (warm) and then a white (cool) sheet up to your face; whichever makes your eyes glow determines your coloring.

Golden Girls Wear the Sun on Their Sleeves

If your skin tone and coloring is fair, bright and sun-kissed, you can relate to celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and Nicole Kidman. You have blond, copper or red hair, with peachy skin that tans easily. How to dress? Glow in muted shades such as taupe, ivory and khaki, but wear turquoise and red and you’re on fire. For day to day color injection, choose subdued shades of rose, jade, aubergine, chocolate and navy.

Be the Fairest of Them All

Porcelain, ivory, pale, white … if you would use these words to describe your skin tone, then you are known in the color analysis industry as “summer.” You have a delicate and cool complexion and should celebrate it. “If you are cool and light it’s best to wear pastel colors like light pinks, light blues, mints and lavender,” suggests Michelle T. Sterling, author of The Sterling Style Academy’s “What Are My True Colors?” booklet.

Glow For It

Like the season you are named after, take your cue from the autumn landscape. Honey, caramel and earthy are how people would describe your warm coloring. You’re in good company — Zoe Saldana, Eva Mendes and Angelina Jolie all share your delicious and versatile tones. The best colors for you to wear are nudes, crisp white, yellows and coppers, which will harmonize your hue. You are the one skin tone that black genuinely compliments.

Ice Queens Pop in Bright Colors

If you find a kindred skin tone in the likes of Naomi Campbell, Alek Wek and Jennifer Hudson, you are “winter.” With your cool, crisp and dark coloring you can be very daring in your dressing style. Stick to blue or pink-based colors, which will show off your beautiful chocolate complexion. Dazzle in rich jewel tones, jazzy bold colors and crisp white to make your everyday style pop.

Breaking the Rules

Don’t be afraid to switch things up every now and then to show off your style savvy. “It’s fine to break the rules as long as you first know if your skin is warm or cool,” says Sterling. “Warm skin should wear gold accessories and cool skin should wear silver accessories near the face if you’re not wearing the appropriate colors on your body.”

A MESSAGE FROM THE STERLING STLYE ACADEMY

If you are tired of using color analysis drapes and swatches to work with your clients during the consultation process and you are you looking for a more current resource,  the Sterling Style Academy introduces our color analysis booklet called What Are My True Colors – A Modern Guide to Color Analysis.  The booklet has a brief introduction about color theory, and then showcases individuals who are of different color qualities from around the world.  It then features up to date, fashion forward clothing samples within the different color qualities to provide you with a wonderful product to give to your clients.  Best of all, it is pocket size and fits easily into a woman’s everyday handbag.

The color palettes in this booklet  will help you during your color analysis consultations – providing you with a modern day solution for the modern day woman. 

The booklet can be purchased individually for US$34.97 or in a 4- pack for US$99.47.  For details and to make your investment, please click hereIf you are interested in learning more about our 3-day color consultant, fashion stylist, and personal shopper training in New York, Dubai, or London, please click here.  This course is great for beginners or seasoned professionals who are seeking further education.

IMAGE CONSULTANCY & PERSONAL STYLING: The Fastest Growing, Fashion Focused Career for Women in Dubai and throughout the Middle East

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

As more job opportunities have opened up for women in the Middle East, one perpetual thought for fashion focused women is to become an image consultant and personal stylist.

Dubai, UAE – April 7, 2011 — As makeover television shows from the UK and US have aired in Dubai in recent years and with such a large expat population in Dubai, the thought of hiring an image consultant to meet your professional image and personal styling needs is not out of the question, however finding a credible and professional one seems to be top concern.

Seeking to bridge this professional training gap in Dubai is the Sterling Style Academy, an internationally recognized institute producing top-notch image consultants and personal stylists worldwide.  Training sessions in Dubai are led by world renowned image consultant, Michelle T. Sterling, founder of Global Image Group, co-author of Success Simplified with Stephen Covey, and author of several other image consultant training books.

“Michelle Sterling has an impressive background and an amazing business.  The image consulting domain is now on demand in Dubai.  Many are thriving to become professional and finding the right training is not easy,” says Dawser Al Hadidi, co-founder of www.stylendubai.com.

For those eager to penetrate this industry a short course in personal styling can position you to become an expert in this fast growing, fashion focused career which will be held in Dubai from May 1 to 3, 2011 at The Address Hotel Downtown, adjacent to The Dubai Mall, with an alternative session from November 2 -4.

The Academy’s three-day Short Course gets you started with colour analysis and fashion style evaluation and implementation, which are where the foundations for careers in fashion styling and image consulting begin. The third day is focused on how to properly execute personal shopping consultations for you, prospective clients, friends and family.  This is the Sterling Style Academy’s third time to conduct personal stylist training in Dubai, and historically their programme has attracted students from the UAE, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Bahrain, as well as from fashion capitals such as London and New York.

The all-day training session begins at 10am and concludes at 4:30pm, with personal shopping activities in the evenings. Tuition fee for new students is US$2,497 (~ AED 9,200+). Registration closes on October 3, therefore act quickly to learn from leaders in the image consulting industry as training sessions in Dubai are only conducted two times a year, in May and in November.
