Woman choosing clothes from her wardrobe

Have you ever opened your wardrobe and been at a loss to know what to wear? Or felt guilty about the money you’ve spent on clothes you don’t wear? You’re not alone. I’ve been there myself so I know how it feels.

I read about Colour Analysis many years ago, but like so many people, I felt that I couldn’t justify spending money on this nebulous thing for myself. I thought it was a ‘Nice-to-have’ for some distant date in the future when finances were easier (when would that ever be?) or for a very special occasion (no prospect of that either!).

Eventually, faced with an upcoming special family event, and mindful of the cringe-worthy photos from my son’s graduation a couple of years previously, I made the decision to book myself in for colour and style consultations. I came home from my consultations and removed all the items from my wardrobe that weren’t making me feel good about myself. It was a big pile. I kept some to dye or to pair with items in better colours, but it was still a big pile. Needless to say, I wished I’d invested in those consultations years ago. I’d have saved myself so much money, a lot of time, and a lot of unnecessary decision fatigue.

And I probably don’t say it often enough, but understanding your colour and style isn’t just about dressing for special events; it simplifies your entire life. It’s for every day, all day, 365 days a year, whatever your lifestyle, whether that’s the school run, in your workplace, running errands, or enjoying some well-deserved time off.

So next time you’re surfing the internet for a new outfit for yourself, think about using that money to invest in yourself with a consultation instead. Whether you choose a Colour Analysis, or a Style or Wardrobe consultation, you’ll achieve clarity with your wardrobe which means easier decisions for you everyday and more time and money for the important things in your life.
