What’s Your Best Color? Hint: It’s Probably Not Black

Posted | 6 comments

Everyone in Black

This blog series, focused on alternatives to black, comes from my growing frustration around the amount of black apparel and accessories in stores and on people.

Unless you have black hair or a black base to your hair, black is not your best color.

Your best colors enhance your features while your worst colors can make you look older, more tired and sickly.

The next several blog posts will review the women pictured above, from Nordstrom.com and AnnTaylor.com, with a suggested alternate color based on basic hair, eye and skin color assessments.

The color assessments and suggestions apply to both women and men.

When you know and incorporate your best colors into outfits, you can use them to enhance your features, body shape, lifestyle and personality.

  1. I’m so happy to read that, since I have black hair, I can keep black in as one of my best colors. I really love how I look in it :)

    Thanks Sasha, and I look forward to reading more!

    • I didn’t want to let the cat out of the bag yesterday, but yes, you look a-ok in black Jenny :) Happy Friday and more to come starting Monday!

  2. I have fair skin and medium blonde hair. Black looks OK–at best–on me. I’ve found that navy and chocolate brown look far better on me than black. It’s reassuring to know I’m not the only one who things black isn’t always best.

    I eager to read the rest of this series!

    • Michelle – yes, brown would be a much better choice for you. The series continues next week!

  3. Can’t wait to see your posts next week – I know I probably have more black than I should in my wardrobe (probably in part because it’s easy to find!) Would you also consider doing a post for people with silver or grey hair and those of us who may be going grey “gracefully”!

    • Hi Emily. Thanks for the suggestion! I touch on grey in the series and always welcome questions.
