The Hue of Calm
It's no secret that all shades of blue are my favorite color. Just take a look around this here site! I was beyond thrilled when Pantone announced 2020 would be the year of Classic Blue.
With a name like "Classic Blue" , this years choice is less exotic than colors of previous years. This hue is easy , accessible, and identifiable.
Expect to see Classic blue demonstrated in everything from nail polish to a toaster oven.
I'm certain you have this classic color hanging in your wardrobe. It's a hue that works with just about every Style Personality particularly when matched up with your Signature Color. I really love to see it paired with corals and greens. The combo is grounding and encouraging- great to wear when you day going to be tough.

The color of cheer, joy, and optimism yellow in all variations is the color of Spring 2019. For the serious temperaments, this upbeat hue can be a bit off-putting. Particularly if your wardrobe is compose of lots of black. However! There is a way to incorporate some cheer in your style for your Style Personality:
Watercolor prints are perfect for the Classic Style Personality. The splashes of yellow are perfectly balance by shades of black, cobalt, and a coral. The dress wears will with a navy cardigan and sandals to ground the dress. This will become a go-look for springtime celebrations.
Try on a yellow plaid short if you're a Comfort Style Personality! Matched with a basic white tank, denim jacket, and slides, this will become a favorite outfit for a Saturday brunch on the patio.
Marigold is bring the sunshine to the Feminine Woman! This tiered sundress is matched with a bubblegum pink cardigan and grosgrain tie espadrilles. A Feminine's Spring wardrobe must feature florals..a statement necklace and earrings adds the whimsy.
The yellow mixed media skirt is the star of this outfit! The Sexy Woman can get away with mixing black and yellow..with a slight nod to a bumble bee. The white blazer structures the look as does the top-handle purse. Add in the leather belt over the blazer to a stunning hourglass silhouette. I can see the Sexy Style Personality wearing this to a cocktail event.
As color trend is a result of societal shifts, yellow is going to be around for a while. If you're looking to add new wardrobe staples, consider pieces that you can wear through fall.
Your Key Hue
What emotion emanates from an all black outfit? What about wearing green and red? What color completely repulses you? Why?
As you begin to edit your wardrobe for spring, take notice of the colors that you seem you wear the most. Are these colors communicating the right message about you? Many women hold the belief that an outfit of all black is chic and slimming. These are truths only if your personality holds the space for the blankness this is absent in this non-hue. An all black outfit on a Comfort Style Personality with a calm temperament and subtle body movement is a communication disaster.
Every Time I get dressed, I like to feel polished, bold, and sophisticated. My signature color embodies and reflects these temperaments. Can you guess my signature color?
My signature color is deep Navy Blue. This cool and bold hue looks well in any fabrication and pairs well with most colors. I have a preference to wear my navy with black in the fall/winter months and with white and bold orange in the spring/summer months. Because navy is the central color of my wardrobe, I center all other hues around it in my wardrobe planning.
