How to shop for your colours

When you know the shades of colours which make you look fabulous, you’ll make fewer shopping mistakes. It’s the top thing I’m told when people ‘get their colours done’!

Learning your colouring type and how to wear colour makes it so much easier to identify what suits you. You’ll also find you’re able to create more outfits from what you have. Over time, your wardrobe becomes more coordinated – it just takes a little practice.

Armed with your swatches from your colour consultation, you’ll be keen to shop for your colours.

How to shop for your colours

If you’re on the hunt for a specific colour, I recommend taking a look at Kettlewell Colours. They’re a great clothing source with good staple items in a variety of colours. Aimed at people who’ve had a colour analysis, it makes them rather unique. You can browse the range here:

At first glance you’ll notice their clothes are organised by seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) as Melissa who established the business was seasonally analysed and struggled finding her colours all year round.

If you’ve had a colour analysis by a colour me beautiful consultant in the last 15 years, you’ll have been TONALLY analysed but it still means you can shop on Kettlewell. I’m sharing how in the video below.

As a reminder, as colour me beautiful consultant, I use a tonal system in which you’ll learn your DOMINANT and sub-dominant colouring types. It’s based upon the colour of your hair (as it is now), your skin tone and your eye colour. Your core colouring will be either light, warm, deep, clear, cool or soft. It’s also the system I use in my colour consultations.

In this video I’m showing you how to use the Kettlewell website to filter to your colouring type under the tonal system. This will make searching online for pieces much easier.

Kettlewell have recently launched their Autumn collection, which has a wider selection of colours than you may find on the high street. You can of course learn the current colour and style trends at my next ‘what to wear’ workshop and the colour and style guide and on-demand masterclass are available from 1 October.
