When I received this copy of The Color of Style by David Zyla I couldn’t wait to read it! Who knew that each time you receive a compliment on your favorite blouse or sweater you are wearing may just be the result of your very own Style DNA talking that you didn’t even know you had!
David Zyla happens to be a stylist and Emmy-nominated head costume designer for ABC-TV’s-All My Children. He has spent his career dressing celebrity women such as Cindy Crawford, Susan Lucci, and Hillary Clinton to name a few. In The Color of Style, Zyla presents simple steps to embrace that Style DNA that will aid you in radiating more confidence and energy.
Here are just five major hues that make up your personal color palette. Zyla also provides you with your Base Colors-these are three neutrals that are building blocks of your wardrobe.
Essence (your version of white). This color reveals your most genuine and honest self. Find it by identifying the lightest shade of the open palm on your hand. Wear it when you want to be completely open and honest!
Romantic (your version of Red)- Reveals your passionate energy. Find the right color just by looking at the color of your flushed cheeks. Wear that color on a romantic date or evening!
Dramatic (your version of Green, Blue, Or Purple). These are the colors that showcase your power, charisma, and authority. How do you find which color applies to you? Just look at the shade of the veins of the inside of your wrist. Wear those colors in a presentation or even in your blouse on an interview. It can even be a cuff bracelet.
Energy (your version of Blue, Green, or Brown). These are the colors that restore your energy. Take a look by looking at the darkest part of your iris of your eye. Don’t look at the ring around the iris but the darkest part of the eye. This is the color you should wear when you want to be calm and centered.
Tranquil (your version of Blue, Green, or Brown) Now take a look at your lightest part of your iris. Wear it when you want to release stress or recover from a stressful day at the office!
Now what about your Neutral Base colors?
First Base Neutral (your version of Black) Your most powerful neutral. It is the color found in the ring of your iris.
Second Base Neutral (your version of Brown) A warmer, less formal neutral. It is the color taken from the darkest shade of hair.
Third Base Neutral (your version of Khaki) An informal neutral. It is the color seen in the lightest shade of your hair.
According to Zyla, once you identify your colors you can then add them into your wardrobe. This in turn will show the world who you really are! If you want to make a change in your wardrobe and don’t know where to start..this is a great resource to have! Buy your copy today!
