Easy to understand your conclusions...
Wow! I love this analysis, thank you!
It’s clear you put a lot of effort and thoughtfulness into it and the results are wonderful. I enjoyed following
along with your process, and it was very easy to understand how you came
to your conclusions. I look forward to this color journey as I settle into my colors and fashion.vI’ve
always chosen the less bright colors over the more vivid but the
outfit examples you sent are good starting point for me.
Now, it’s time to do some shopping, and I think I’ll start with a color fan! Laura USA
Pamela says: Laura does shy away from over-bright colors so I've give examples of how to base outfits initially on the neutrals and gradually add in color as she gains in color confidence.
I've been drawn to Autumn...
Thank you very much for my colour analysis results. It was very
detailed and very interesting.
Whenever I did online analysis questions or like many ladies my
age used the colour me beautiful book it always arrived at the same
result of winter or cool and deep. I was never happy with that result
because although the colours are striking I felt that people notice the colour
and not me! Does that make sense? (Absolutely makes sense Esme)
Funnily enough I have been drawn to the Autumn palette but wasn't sure if they would look good on me. Esme UK
The Capsule Queen...
"Thank you so much Pamela for the color analysis. I knew I could wear a few of those colors so seeing the complete color palette is very helpful!
Yes absolutely you may use my photo and I will be delighted to recommend your services". Leanne, USA
Pamela says: The very talented Leanne has captured a vast audience with the Capsule Wardrobe books she creates each season. Although she favors certain shades she was unaware of the full color palette that would echo and complement her Light coloring. The process of color choice can usually be linked to color direction! You can find Leanne at:
"..my favorite colors are my colors..."
so much, Pamela!!! I love this and am so impressed! I’m so happy
that my favorite colors are “my” colors! I’m thrilled with your
embarrassing that I put myself into the autumn pigeon hole for so long, but
you’re right when you’re young, you can get away with a lot more blunders.
website is also wonderful! I love the Zoe travel bag. I just have
to decide what color I want. Can I
order the fabric swatch to keep in my purse? Christine, USA
I love the way you describe my coloring...
you for your work, there is so much detail here, great descriptions, pictures and info.
am surprised at your analysis (thought I was Spring) but I love that
you have described me in a different way than I ever have been before. I
like the thought of light cool and soft to describe me. I was always leery
of Summer because my eyes are not a beautiful bright blue, but more of a softer
blue green. I think it will take me a while to get my colors
down and try to figure out the makeup.
been a great experience and I look forward to building a new wardrobe. I really enjoy the website, and love the information. Sherry USA
A very sensible system...
Just wanted to let you know how
pleased I am with this analysis! The true test is the fact that I
can't think of a single question to ask
you - or rather, when I do, I realized it's already answered in the
information you gave me.
In past analyses, there was always something
that didn't fit, why could I wear some softer and brighter
shades? Why could I not decide on black (not the
best but not horrid? Why did some cool makeup colors look almost too
cool? Why did I seem to be so 'medium' on both the
bright/soft and dark/light continuums?
It all fits with the Cool
analysis so thanks again, a very sensible system you've worked out. All the best Helena, USA
It explains so much...
Laura, USA: Thank you so much the analysis is excellent and explains so
I've often been drawn to Summer colors but felt I needed to “brighten” myself up with warmer colored
clothes and hair. I’d been coloring my hair warm for
so long that I'd kind of forgotten that I was once naturally cooler.
I suspected either Soft or Summer could be a possibility but I was quite surprised when I read the results anyway.
Now I know that my instincts were right.
I heard about you through a small Facebook group, several of the ladies have had analyses and were very pleased. We all think you are
And a followup: 5
months ago I received your Online Color Analysis with a result of Summer. I had previously been determined Warm Spring but after several months realized
the colors weren’t right. Just like to let you know that I'm very happy with your analysis the colors feel very natural and I love them. I’m also finding it more effortless to put outfits together. I’ve added a couple of pics of me
dressed in my Summer colors - thank you again!
So excited and ready for shopping...
for my colour analysis. It was very detailed and explains why I
didn't like my 2 previous Color Analysis'.
told Summer, Cool Summer, and Elegant Colours which is a combination of Summer/Winter but different tones to the ones you
actually like the colour palette you have given me and explains why I
liked certain shades of Kettlewell Colours which are in my new
a lot of sense and I'm so excited, ready to go shopping
now. I found a fantastic colour consultant in you Pamela and I
thank you again for what you have done for me. I will continue to follow
your example and buy your wardrobe capsules and I am excited to tell all my
friends about you. Kristin, USA
I wish I had buckets of money...
I do love the colours. I wish I had buckets full of money to redo my entire wardrobe now! I'm not very patient. Lol.
Yes you can use my photo. Which one? I'm just hoping it
isn't the one I took while in the bus, I'm not very photogenic! Chantal, Canada
Pamela: On the contrary Chantal you look fabulous in this photo! Much better to get your head round everything before jumping in and spending loads of money!
Ready for the attention...
I love your work and certainly you can use my photo.
was thinking about adding a color like pink,
blue, teal, or purple so it shows up but looking for the Warmest tone. What is
your opinion of these vs something like auburn brown? I understand the color draws attention, but I'm so ready to do it. I
also plan to wear more scarves although we live in Texas and
it's really hot, we're shortly moving. Kathy USA
P: I think the main thing is that you're feeling well enough for some fun and when you've gone through a period of ill health what could be
better? Just telling the world that you're HERE
Now I understand...
Thank you Pamela. I finally was able to pull up the full color analysis on my smartphone. I've read everything, I think I understand and agree.
The results make perfect sense to me; now I understand why I am naturally drawn to certain colors.
Thank you again. You have helped me tremendously! Looking forward to my fabric color swatch. Tanja, USA
Exceeded my expectations!
You’ve definitely exceeded my
expectations with my color analysis!
I had one done about 30 years ago
and was deemed a Cool Winter but was never happy with it; many of the
colors were too deep for me and the rest was just too limiting. Another person
told me they thought I was in the Muted color family but I wound up not being
completely happy with that either.
I was very happy to see your analysis of Cool which includes Winter and Summer Cool colors; much more all encompassing.
I need to tweak parts of my wardrobe but already have a very good
start. Seems I was naturally gravitating toward many of the right colors
through the years. I’ll be adding some of the new colors this
summer. Thank you so much for such a thorough
and well thought out analysis. I’ve read it three times already! More than worth the money. Kerri, USA
Such an in-depth approach...
Over the years I've had my
"colors" analyzed twice and, in both cases, it took only a
few minutes and seemed to be based on only a few factors. I was intrigued by
Pamela's website and her in-depth approach to color analysis and
especially impressed by the testimonials including "before" and
"after" photos of her clients. After filling out an extensive
questionnaire and sending several photos taken in natural light, I received an
unbelievably in-depth analysis that consisted of 3 documents and 15 color
Pamela carefully explained how she came to the conclusion that I fall into the Muted Soft category by meticulously detailing her step-by-step thought process including photos to illustrate how each step led to her conclusions.
She then presented an in-depth discussion of
how the Muted Soft palette works, including how to avoid extremes of color and
how to coordinate the colors into outfits. In addition, she has personally answered several questions about working with the clothing I
already have. I am so very grateful to her for her thoughtfulness, care and
attention. Thank you Pamela for all the time and effort put into my color
analysis! Anne, Tennessee, USA
'We thought it was a Mom thing'
Mom speaking: McKay and Bella weren't sure about the validity of Color Analysis as it
puts you in a box (was "old fashioned") and limits choice. After seeing their detailed analysis' they
changed their tune and agreed there is something to this!
McKaylee: is very happy with her Spring analysis and loves to wear the blues/bright aquas that make her happy! The difference between
cool and warm pinks was surprising; an almost gray look in the cool but appearing more alive and fresh in the warm Spring pinks. This confirms the fact that a muted gray made her complexion blah; unaware that it was color choice that made her look so pale.
Bella: loves and gravitates to the darker cooler shades. She agrees and feels good with the Cool palette; burgundy, charcoal and cool blues are her staples. Yellow is a favorite color-of-the-moment but she finds it difficult so has compared her current go-to pale yellow top with the only yellow on the swatches. She proudly said "it's a match, so why I feel good and wear it the most!" Further validation for her
that color analysis works!
Thank you for your beautiful gift of color and magic on my girls and me! I love your
system, your depth and understanding even for the younger woman like my daughters who had never heard of Color Analysis. They caught on quickly and grasped the concept when they
looked at the picture comparisons. We're very happy with your findings! Holly, USA
Pamela says: Gorgeous girls, siblings but entirely different! Fun to do their analysis. Mum Holly is featured below.
Wow wow wow, I get it!
I can't tell you how
your attention to detail has helped me, I completely agree with your analysis
and love all the pictures and comparisons. It really does help to see yourself
in the middle of the color blocks, sort of like being an outsider looking in. Instant
clarity with a fresh set of eyes which greatly helped me to see for myself where
I fit in this puzzle of life called color!
several key points when you describe how my skin reacts to color that I recognized and
convinced me you hit the mark.
Finally have an understanding of how it feels to be
ME! You may
absolutely use my photograph and quotes I want everyone to know you are the
real deal in color analysis! Holly, USA
"...shop from a place of anxiety not creativity..."
...so happy with the wonderful and detailed analysis. With dark hair and eyes I always thought I was Winter or perhaps deep Autumn; but puzzled at not being able to wear Autumn cream/gold and the brightness/high contrast of Winter looked harsh.
Pamela said that with a pink skintone and a softness to my brown eyes I suited Cool colours, everything fell into place. I would never have been
able to determine this by myself.
I wore one of my Cool color suggestions and felt really confident, I’ve also had
cool highlights added and have sourced some cool makeup. I
will finally enjoy wearing 'my' colours after going round in circles
for so long.
Realized that I often shop from a place of anxiety not
creativity! Joanna UK
...made me feel special!
Pamela, your work is truly excellent. I have enjoyed this. It has made me feel very special.
You have met all of my expectations and I am very sincerely grateful.
Thank you, Lynda, USA
Lady in red...
I have printed off and read everything and I am happy with the Winter season and the colours you suggested.
Thank you so much for doing this for me, I have already ordered a
blue shirt to try and will be wearing a red dress when I go out
dancing on Saturday night,
I will order a Winter Fabric Swatch later today. Ellen, UK
The most thorough Color Analysis
Thank you so much for the beautifully
detailed color analysis, you do a wonderful job breaking down color
theory into understandable terms and provide supporting visuals. This is the
most thorough analysis I've ever received and I'm very happy with
In all honesty I've previously been told that I'm Spring
(True Spring followed by Clear Spring) however the
analyst used the 12 seasons which I hate, too overwhelming, and I much prefer your fabric swatch to a 'paint-swatch’ type.
Incidentally, I’ve also been told that
I'm a Light Summer – but something was bothering me about those colors. I love your warm friendly approach. Sue USA
I have struggled...
Thank you so much. You are spot on. I have struggled with my own
analysis believing I was a soft autumn confused by the fact
that I knew I could wear orange colors well.
I believed I was soft and am still a little shy about calling attention to my self.
Another issue I was having finding my colors was the degree of
intensity. But you have cleared that up beautifully. I think my coloring
comes from my maternal grandfather who was a redheaded Irish man. I
can't thank you enough for your analysis. I can't wait
to go shopping. I will be following your website closely. You have certainly put a smile on my face. Rhinda, USA
Previously Autumn - but feel right as a Cool...
Thank you again for taking the time for my analysis and the long report.
Some of my clothes are in the Cool category but many
are in Autumn colors. What to do? I have two real leather skirts in
camel that I'd like to keep, also a long winter coat. Some of
my clothes will go direct to the Red Cross but I need lots of clothes for the long
winter. We had 20cm of snow 2 days ago and now -13 C in Helsinki - too cold for me.
I agree that the Summer colors are too light and the
Winters too strong. It is difficult to see myself as others
see me and it has been very interesting to read everything. Raili, Finland
I'm holding my head up now...
Thank you for the thorough Color
Analysis I was very pleased with how you go about it and analyzed me.
had figured I was an Autumn of some type but being True autumn is very good for
me to know, I wasn't sure if I was soft or deep and I had never heard
about Tonal Analysis. Now I can move ahead with my colors and feel more
confident in what I wear with my white hair, I sure didn't like me with
the blonde on the photo you tried! I have had trouble accepting my
hair thinking it makes me look older though but I am holding my head up high
levels: is it best for me to wear medium or high
contrast colors together? Louise, Australia
Pamela says: Louise's contrast is actually more defined with her stunning white hair.
Ready for a 'pop' of bright...
Juliette from the USA: Thank you
so much for your in depth analysis - it makes a lot of sense and
I'm actually really excited!
I've always loved bright colors but living in a city for so long made it
more comfortable to wear black and grays. I was a bit nervous about
brights but it’s great that I can use/wear a lot of the neutrals that I
already have (I own a ton of charcoal gray) and I can use accessories to ‘pop’
I think I
switched to safer/deeper colors as I got a bit older. My go-to is a burgundy
with charcoal gray, but I've always loved purples and brighter reds. I'm really
excited to continue on my style journey!
What a complete and perfect color analysis!
Bonnie, USA: Yes, I am both Warm and Cool, but most of all ‘light’. It’s
so nice to have that all addressed with the beautiful Light color palette you
have chosen for me.
It has been so difficult trying to find where I fit. Mostly, I've been wearing mid-value colors on the cool-ish side. I don’t wear
many prints aside from stripes as they seem to compete with my clarity. Spring
Colors that are too warm bring out redness in my face. Too pastel will wash me
out. Perhaps now with the right color palette I will be able to enjoy a better
excited to finally get to downsize my closet. When I had a
personal color analysis with TCI I thought I had it under control but with
Soft Summer’s gray undertones it was quickly obvious that it wasn’t me. I looked
and felt “gray”.
system has simplified the complexities of not fitting neatly into one season. I
feel all my color attributes have been addressed and finally this is “me”.
It's easy to get sidetracked...
I've had a few days to read digest and think over your advice; it's been a
revelation. At first I was a bit discombobulated not to fit into a Season but on reflection I realised I already knew so it made sense.
I remember an online quiz asking whether I looked best in white or ivory;
that was confusing because I knew I suited both so analysed as Cool made
The Cool palette leaves me with a lot of things that
instinctively work & explains things that don't. I've never looked
good in traditional beige leopard print but now I know
why but I once had a grey cheetah coat that I loved - makes sense.
at my wardrobe the most expensive things I own tend to be in the Cool
palette while most of my mistakes are sale 'bargains'/fast fashion buys;
I obviously have some instinct for what works with investment dressing
but as you say it's easy to get sidetracked!
Thanks so much for the
hair advice I knew it wasn't right but I tend to let hairdressers bully me, good to have the validation of an outside expert. Debra, UK
Like coming home...
The in-depth analysis was fascinating. I'm really
happy with the results and slightly surprised as I had almost
started to convince myself I could be Cool! Funny how we see ourselves and how easy it is to get
mislead by pale skin and some ash tones. I trust your
judgment and definitely agree with your
conclusion, so pleased to have a clear direction. I used to wear so many colours in this
palette yet somehow muted or sometimes cooler colours have crept in over the years
The palette feels so alive it
speaks straight to me and warms my heart.
It almost feels like a homecoming as if I’ve been given the
go-ahead to embrace the warmth and happiness. I know it sounds cheesy
but it actually makes me a bit emotional. I truly thank you,
Pamela. Sarah, Denmark (formerly UK)
I suspected I was Cool colouring. Years ago when the Seasons began I felt I didn't really fit any of the categories. I was somewhere
between Summer and Winter and naturally gravitated towards some of the
colours in those palettes. It was nice to have someone confirm
Most of my wardrobe fits the Cool palette but there are some
fun colours I can try as well. I did find that L'Oreal has foundations is
Warm, Cool and Neutral undertones so picked one in Cool and it matches
great, makes a big difference. I just need to find lipstick colours now.
much for all your help. I'm looking forward to getting the colour swatch. Susan, Canada
Pamela: How different siblings can be. Susan's sister Kathryn is above - they're polar opposites!
I love the depth you go into... Kelly from the USA
I love my
color analysis thank you so much! Let me first say that your site is the first place that I’ve ever come
across the Tonal color families. I was always trying to decide if I was a
summer or a winter; felt I was too dark for Summer but too light for Winter.
And then I encountered a system that broke all the seasons down into three
separate categories such as light, bright, and deep. I also saw the words
shaded. How confusing! I really could not decide then.
Then I came across your
site and pretty much figured I was probably either a Cool or a Winter but
kind of also wondered about the Muted so I really wanted to have you do the Color Analysis so that I would know for sure.
If I had been forced to choose I
would have said I was the Cool color family so looks like I was right. I love
the depth you go into, I'll be buying the fabric color swatch for sure. Again
thank you so much. I’m 100% satisfied. Your website is very
clear, you do amazing work. Thanks again!
It's taken a while...
It's taken a while but I'm starting to see this now. I've just ordered some clothes from Kettlewell and mentioned your name when they asked how I heard of the company.
How did you pick up Irish in me? Do I appear
Irish? My paternal grandmother is Irish and grandfather is Catalan. All
of my relatives on the Irish side have very dark hair, however, I have distant cousins from Barcelona who are gingers. Kellie, USA
Spring to Soft Summer but happy to be back...
I think I instinctively chose Spring colors before I ever thought about the gold flecks in my eyes and decided I was Spring! I have old photos of me in turquoise, periwinkle blue and clear red.
Then a few natural ash tones in my hair threw
me and I switched to Soft Summer - there's a soft look I see from time to time so it seemed
to make sense.
I've been weeding out the Soft Summer colors from
my wardrobe this week and noticed that I collected crossover colors that also
fit into Spring; some of them are very muted though and those are the
ones that are going to go.
I was so excited once your conclusion set in that I
took a day off to rearrange my wardrobe back to Spring. I'm getting my old wardrobe
back, but it's different. I feel more free now to mix it up and pair
opposites - and I'm only keeping what I love. Angie from http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com/
Sue is an expat blogger enjoying the Spanish sun...
so much to take in, but my immediate reaction was that it all made sense and there are lots of colours that I love in there. I liked the way you showed
the various options so I could see the difference between warm and cool etc,
and also how you used some photos from my blog!
some of the Autumn colours in my Warm swatch, but it will be good to have all
the Autumn colours together. It's interesting to see the difference having the
deep element makes, as many of the warm shades are too light for me.
definitely pleased with the results, thanks for such an indepth analysis plus the book. Sue, Spain from over60andoverhere.blogspot.com
This is a game changer for me!
Thank you for the detailed
analysis. I think that it's going to be a game changer and save me
money in my future purchases. I've had other online analysis - been neutral and even warm neutral twice (soft autumn).
Those analysis' were challenged on a Facebook forum with lots of feedback saying I was cool most likely a summer maybe winter.
It's hard to be objective and maybe as
you pointed out the most important thing isn't bright vs. soft or light vs.
dark so those factors have always thrown me off when trying to apply other
systems. My palette is so classy and I love
that you made the comparison to Duchess Kate. I can't wait to start building a wardrobe
that will serve me for the rest of my life. Thank you again! Laurie, USA
Think I've gone into analysis paralysis!
SO much for this. It's absolutely wonderful. I had a feeling I was going to be
either Autumn or Winter, so this has confirmed it and I'm very excited!
actually rebuilding my wardrobe 'from the ground up'. Most of my clothes no
longer fit so I'm literally starting from
scratch. I absolutely LOVE the idea of a capsule wardrobe, at least to start
off with, so I'm trying to come up with a colour palette based on the analysis
you've given me.
I've gone into analysis paralysis! Christina, Australia
Pamela says: Christina has lots of black in her wardrobe and the boldest colors of Autumn work so well with this to give her plenty of mix and match opportunities straightaway.
This makes sense...
Thank you so much, this is very exciting and makes sense of what
I was thinking. I have a lot of the colours already but now it gives me a much
better focus and a good deal of inspiration. It also explains why some colours
just don't make me feel good even though I like them!
I always wanted to do an
analysis but found it too expensive but I think you are offering good
value for money and it is equally effective online. Eleanor, UK
So exciting, Linda USA
gosh, this is just wonderful. I have a few things still to read, but I
love all the work you
I've needed help for a long time and have always been confused with color. Am so looking forward to my fabric swatch and feeling impatient!...
I got them yesterday. I'd ordered coats in camel and grey, and that worked the best. I was able to see that the camel was a medium shade and didn't quite fit in with the colors.
Will have a lot of fun - so glad you did
my color analysis, such a thorough job! It is very exciting and keeps me
a bit out of myself! Thanks so
From confusion to confidence...
so much for all the wonderful information you have sent me.
I had been
previously told I was a Summer flowing to Spring which I have found quite
confusing and thought perhaps I might be more tonal. Coming out as a True Spring
is a surprise but makes so much sense when I look at the pictures, especially
as I've always thought peachy make-up and bronzer really suited me rather than
pinks. No wonder I have been feeling quite drab of late!
You have given me the confidence to embrace some colours which I had
thought suited me but was contrary to the cool palette I've been sticking
excited to keep my new copper hair and can't wait to brighten up my wardrobe. Deborah U.S.A.
Having fun with my Summer colors
Pamela, I think I got everything. It will take a while to process but I love
the way you show the warm and cool so I can see the difference. When I was
younger I think I was more of a Cool but you are spot on that Summer is better
now. I do want to order the fabric swatch but let me look everything over
Thank goodness for Poshmark-lots of Warm stuff going to sell! Thanks
again. You have confirmed what I thought was correct.
having fun with my summer colors.
Janice from Canada...
been searching for over 2 years for someone to do my colours. Anyone I found missed the mark but when I
came across Pamela's site I knew I had hit gold!
Everyone looked so much
better in their correct colours. I always thought I might be Autumn but
some of the colours were just so off, now I know I'm a Summer and
I love all the colours! I have gone through a lot in the last few years
of my life and this is just what I need to help get back on track.
need new clothes but didn't want to waste money on things that didn't
flatter me so finding my best colours as a first step. Why
spend loads of money if they won't flatter me? Now I know exactly what to buy no money wasted
I feel more confident! Thank you so much
Pamela you are a treasure and I truly feel you have a gift at helping people with their
colours, and through that with their confidence!"
Juliet from France..
Before: "I am a new mom since 6 months and I would like find the right colors to be prettier and feel more confident."
After: "Thank you
very much for this color analysis. I am very happy to finally know what
colors to choose.
I started buying a scarf with spring colors and I
immediately saw the difference on me. I will continue with sun dresses for
this summer" :)
Thank you so much - how wonderful to see your analysis it
makes perfect sense.
In some ways I was slightly disappointed that you didn’t
say you thought I was a Spring or a Light or even an Autumn just because it
would be something that would be completely different and new to work with but
deep down I knew I was somewhere between Summer and Winter and most of my
favourite clothes are Cool coloured.
You’ve given me a great framework and a better
understanding of how/why my colouring is supported and brought out with
cool colours but not so much in some of the colours in the Summer and
I don’t know why I waited so long to ask for your help!
P: Melissa's hair is transitioning into beautiful silver which allows her colors to look more stunning.
I love it!
Susan from the US:
Thank you so much! I love it! I will take some time this
week to read and digest all the information. Can’t wait to dive in. By the
way, You were recommended by Laura V. Several of us in that group find
your analyses (even online!) to be thorough and so very helpful.
explanation of the Summer seasonal palette (vs tonal) helps all the
others I’ve had make sense now. I'm really enjoying my palette.
Fiona, Australia says: I appreciate your
help to all my questions. I'm really looking forward to identifying a pattern and
understanding why certain colours and makeup works or don't work. I
want to stop second guessing myself all the time over purchases and know
what to look for. Thank you for the digital swatch, can I order fabric swatch from you?
Pamela:You talked initially about finding
your personal style - well after seeing earlier photos of you I think you've definitely
found it. With your short curly hair and colorful
glasses it really sets off your delicate features and the vibrant Spring colors
will be the finishing touch.
No wonder I always thought I was pale...
Looking at my pictures with the
colors around them I can't believe I could have been so confused thinking I
was warm. I can really see how the Winter palette favors my skin tone. About 90% of my
wardrobe and makeup is warm using orange, brown and gold jewelry. That could be the reason why I always thought
about myself as yellow and pale but I've just been using the wrong colors
most of the time.
I am so happy now knowing my right colors that I look forward to start making
changes little by little to enhance my appearance. I know it will take time as
you said but thank you
again I am really happy with the results and love the colors of the Winter palette. USA.
