When you get a palette based on your body colors, you can build a wardrobe that has colors for different intentions.  You can read about this in David Zyla's book, but also in Jane Segerstrom's and others.  Jennifer Butler also uses this model and it must come from Suzanne Caygill.

This is my Color Profiles fan.  I do fabric fan color analysis at Expressing Your True Colors.
All of the sample colors below come from my fan.  See my portfolio.


Color & Type Bookstore

NEUTRALS

The colors in your hair and eyes provide agrounding effect when worn as your neutrals - for suit separates, handbags and shoes.  Your neutral colors are for formal and informal use.

My hair is darkest brown, reading black

The colors in your eyes -- particularly the lights of your eyes - used as your neutrals, provide a balancing and stabilizing effect when worn.

analogous and complementary colors to hair and eye colors:
SPRING SUMMER AUTUMN WINTER


SKIN TONE

Your skin tone colors are worn to express vulnerability and connectedness, especially in building relationships.

 

WHITE

Most people will wear an off white that is in their season's chroma.

DRAMATIC

The colors found in your veins are your natural dramatic colors. These can be used for when you are making presentations or negotiating and you want to make an impact.
My veins are blue/teal and purple.









ROMANTIC

The color that you blush is your Romantic red.  This color's purpose is creativity.  It is also wonderful for celebration.  Wear responsibly as it can excite passion.
