March Newsletter 2016 - Your Style #034

Hi there

You know, Style Yourself Confident is a pretty simple concept!  I love passing onto you what I know about Color and Shape.  Style?  Well that's a debatable question. 

One kind lady this week called me a 'stylist' but I'm certainly not a fashionista and I don't show or tell you about the latest trends. You, however, tell me that my articles are helping you to discover your best colors and helping to solve the odd figure challenge.  You see it's simple - just a little knowledge or a new idea can raise your confidence helping you to feel good about yourself. And when you feel good you look good - that's STYLE!

I also like 'simple' clothes that fit easily, wash well and feel comfortable. I don't want something that's cut for a teenager because I have a few lumps and bumps but the simplest garment is always the most difficult to find. Well I have finally found it - are you ready for Covered Perfectly?  They're simply the best!


I've had my eye on these rather special tops for quite a while - a range that's specifically designed for Women Over 40 with reviews that are almost too good to be true.

I live in trousers so I'm always looking for attractive but useful tops. I want something better than a t-shirt, something that's comfortable, versatile, looks good and washes with no fuss.  I don't want something that's cut for a teenager so it mustn't pull around the shoulders and it has to be long enough not to ride up.  Not much to ask really!  (read more)...

To grey or not to grey...

So many questions about going grey recently so I've pulled together a few facts - then you can look at the options. There is no RIGHT WAY to manage your hair through the color change - just do what feels best for YOU!

Some of you have been kind enough to send photographs of your transition, how you've coped and how it's made you feel. Like to send a photo and tell us about your journey, happy or not?  Contact me...

Wide leg pants - do a great cover up job!

Thin legs, fat legs, varicose veins, difficult feet or it just makes you feel more comfortable to cover up - all sorts of reasons why you might want to keep your legs covered.

An additional consideration if you're living in a warm climate is that everyone else appears to be in shorts or mini skirts! 

But it's easy to find an elegant, comfortable and fashionable solution.

Wide legged pants are your go-to answer...

Yes you can wear RED this year!

A little late for Valentine's Day but you can wear RED this year and you'll see a lot of it around.  It's one of the 10 colors to be highlighted by Pantone for Spring 2016 and it will be featured in several of the top designer collections.

I always think that Pantone's collection of colors is a strange kind of mix but all you have to do is find the best and most flattering colors that work for you. And contrary to what many of you might think everyone and yes even you can wear and enjoy RED!

Ebook and Book Review update

Thank you so much for all the kind messages offering help with the review of the ebooks currently in process.

Pulling the 6 Tonal books together, finalising and polishing, is taking much longer than I anticipated.  Not sure that having 6 balls in the air at the same time was my most clever idea but on the other hand it's pushed me harder and I hope the end result will be worth the wait. I have really welcomed any and all your constructive criticism.

I have therefore postponed the Seasonal books for a while to take the pressure off (not least for my husband who's been tied to the kitchen!)  Will keep you posted.

QUESTION: I have a CMB Summer swatchbook from 1994 and a Twelve Tones (Sci/Art) True Summer fan. I've been trying to define the colour "Plum" in the former, feeling that if I had an idea of its dimensions.... read more....

ANSWER: the past, I have tried to qualify and be more detailed about colors within palettes mainly because I felt that I should be able to point people in the right direction for color matching but... read more...

Color Confusion....

Kobi was getting very confused about color families - particularly between Autumn and Winter. No wonder, she has elements of both Warm and Cool characteristics.  She needs some depth of color to balance with her very dark eyes but the warm colors of Autumn make her skin look very yellow.  Deep colors begin to harmonize and clear her skin, DEEP BRIGHT is better still!  Online Color Analysis...

One of my favorite quotes this week...
