Elevate Your Image, In Person Image

If you’re wondering, what is my Dominant Color Category?

I want to help you discover your Dominant Color Category so I can then recommend wardrobe items like scarves, blazers and floral prints for your unique coloring AND tell you what HOT seasonal colors will work for you. This post is for you if you’re wondering,

what is my Dominant Color Category?

…or if I told you which category you are at an event. Welcome! 

This concept comes from my friend, cohort and mentor Shari Braendel‘s book “Help Me, Jesus, I Have Nothing To Wear!”

I highly recommend the book (I refer to it so often that it never leaves my desk) and I ADORE Shari. This is Shari with my mom and me at an event at ASU a few years ago.

  1. Hi Tabitha, , first of all, let me say thank you for all the wonderful postings you have on DCCs. Secondly would you mind explaining why the woman in the yellow dress on the board for clears is a clear and not a deep? She has med dark skin, dark hair and dark eyes. Wouldn’t that make her Deep? Other examples of clears vs deeps would be appreciated. Thank you so much

    1. Thanks my dear! As you probably know, it’s incredibly hard to find examples of the categories wearing their best colors!! What I learned early in my unofficial training was that when you’re talking about the categories, you have to account for ethnicity. Are they fair, deep or high contrast *for their ethnicity?* Not all women with bronze skin are automatically Deep (even though that’s my natural inclination). She’s quite fair for her ethnicity with the bright eyes and dark hair. I feel she’d be far better off in the Clear palette whereas the Deep would be overpowering or even dulling. There are some of us having this very debate on a Clear vs. Deep on our Facebook page and I basically said, these are often cases of asking HER, what colors do you love and feel liven you up?? I wish it were an exact science and I’m still learning every day! I appreciate the dialog 🙂 And here’s my post about what makes me a Deep, not a Clear. https://tabithadumas.com/need-second-opinion/

  2. Hello there! My name is Natasya Situmorang ????????. I’m from Indonesia (was born and raised in Bekasi, West Java) ????????. I want to say that I love your article so much! Seasonal colour palette wise, I’m definitely a winter ❄ (I have dark brown eyes, raven black hair and fair skin). I’m definitely cool-toned. I believe I am a “clear” since I have high contrast between eye colour/hair colour and skin colour ????❤????????????. This is wonderful and may the Lord our God Jesus Christ bless you!
