    Hi.

    I just want to start with how much I love your approach to color. It’s so intuitive to me and I appreciate not being forced into a particular box. I fall somewhere along the cool summer – cool winter – clear winter line, depending on how long it’s been since I covered my gray.

    I also have a question. Is there some sort of rule of thumb about how much of a ‘not my color’ a person can tolerate? For example, orange is *definitely* not my color, but it’s a color I love, particularly the bright, tangerine variety. I also think I can pull it off as long as it isn’t the dominant color close to my face. For example, it’s a little stunning just how many tops and dresses I’ve accumulated that are mostly white with some sort of black or gray, hot pink and orange floral pattern, and I generally think I wear those just fine as long as I choose my lipstick carefully.

    Some of my tops, however, have more of my beloved orange in them (or are entirely orange because I can’t resist them!). I have a similar dilemma with bronze. That’s actually way worse than the bright oranges for me, but I have a top that is a teal-bronze-teal ombre and I love to wear it in early fall. Since the teal is at the top, and therefore closer to my face, is it rational to think the bronze is okay?

    I guess wonder whether there’s some point at which I’m just fooling myself into thinking I’m still pulling off. Is adding a scarf enough to offset the ‘not my color’? What about a blazer or cardigan? If it’s a print, is there some tipping point around where the ‘not my color’ becomes too much, like if it’s 40%, that’s probably too much, or it’s probably fine until you get to 70% or something like that? Is there something about how far away from your face an unflattering color needs to be?

    Appreciate all your insights!

      This is a great question and I’m glad you asked it for all my readers.

      I don’t think there’s a magic ratio. Colors have the most impact when they are close to the face or are able to reflect color onto the face.

      So, putting teal in between your face and an “off” color can be enough. Wearing an orange blazer may be too much. The lower on the body the better.

      Bronze doesn’t work because you are “Bright” and bronze, besides it being warm, is also slightly muted. So, now it’s just wrong wrong wrong for you.

      I hope this helps

      Jen
