After your colour analysis
If you've recently had your colour analysis, you might still be in that post analysis slightly-panicked-and-confused phase, where you've been given your season, you've looked at your wardrobe and spent a few minutes hyperventilating at how many 'wrong' colours you own and you've chucked out perhaps three items of clothing that you never liked much anyway. And now you're not quite sure what to do next.
If you're feeling a bit stuck, then help is at hand. I've pulled together ten essentials, together with five top tips, that will help you begin to move your wardrobe over to your best colours without requiring you to chuck away everything you already own.
If you've had your colours analysed, please just click on the appropriate link below to be taken straight to the essentials for your season. If you haven't had an analysis yet, read on for some tips and tricks to make your wardrobe work more effectively for you even without an analysis.
If you don't know your personal best palette, it's still possible to move your wardrobe over to a coherent palette of colours that works well on a wide range of skin tones. Shades such as a taupe-grey, teal, navy, soft white and true red look great on almost everyone and can create a stylish wardrobe that isn't dependent on the boring basics of black and white.

Limiting your wardrobe colour palette will also help you, counter intuitively, embrace colour, as it will give you the confidence to wear the colours that are in your wardrobe, knowing that they harmonise well. It will give you more clothing options, as everything you own will mix and match.
