Look True to You
Every person thinks, feels, and decides based on what they see.
Don’t leave it up to chance.
In the video, we’ll imagine what might happen when a woman changes her colours.
Tip for watching the video: When you see the face and clothing colours together, pretend you’re meeting socially. Look at the face, not the clothes, as you would with anyone you meet. Then, ask yourself how you feel about the colours she wears alongside the face.
The video is also here on YouTube.

The pros and cons of fitting in
Looking like those around us is a story we can relate to. We hope it will help us find friends, be hired, or feel part of our social circle.
We want to know how to fit in without losing sight of ourselves or being confused by our reflection in the mirror.
How great would it be if we could control what others believe about who we are and what we can do?
Here’s how: Know your colours. Know your lines.
They are your constant companions. They won’t change again.
Now for what to wear
The woman in the video may belong to one of the three types of Winter.
The panel shown in the video is for a Dark Winter (the Winter colouring mixed with a smaller proportion of Autumn). Here it is again:
She is starting a new job and needs some basics, leaving student looks for weekends. And she knows she’s some type of Winter. The Before colours wouldn’t belong here. She makes sure that her new purchases do.
She may be a True Winter looking for items for upcoming formal events. She might only wear a few of the styles in this panel, but she understands why the colours work together. She’ll shop with that in mind.
Although the colours used in the video are dark, every Season has light, medium, and dark colours, including the 3 Winters. It is important to wear them with darks to create the big contrast (distance between lightest and darkest) that is so important to look great as a Winter.
