Five Benefits of a Colour Analysis

There are so many sales at certain times of the year! Boxing Day, Black Friday, End of Financial Year sales: all good opportunity to shop. So let’s talk about being more considered in our purchasing decisions, and ways to use a Colour Analysis to refine your shopping approach.
When I went shopping before my Colour Analysis, I’d see outfits in various stores and think how nice they look. I’d fall in love and before I knew it the outfit was nestled in my wardrobe.
Most often, though, when I’d get home and put it on I’d be disappointed because it didn’t look right on me. So I’d automatically think I was somehow flawed. I thought I was the issue, not the garment.
What I know now is this: if you don’t know what colours and styles are best for you, you’ll be really disappointed when you buy an outfit and it looks blegh on you. I now know I’m not inherently flawed! I was just making uninformed choices about what looks best on me.
So, my Top 5 Benefits of a Colour Analysis are:
BONUS: My mentoring group. This was a surprise benefit that I hadn’t realised would be so valuable! My mentoring group gives me a safe place to experiment and get advice from others. I have a team of like-minded women to share insights with, which reinforces my learning at the same time.
So, if you’re thinking about having a Colour Analysis done, it’s good to know that it can be the start of a journey. Or you can just work with your best colours and leave it at that. Either way, it is a great way to invest in yourself and understand how to make the most of the uniqueness that is you!
