**Congratulations! You have landed on my most popular blog post! If you read these and start to email me to tell me they don’t work for you, here’s the disclaimer. After working with THOUSANDS of women, these are the colors that look good on MOST women. There are infinite colors out there but these are universally flattering ones that are also easy to shop for. When we do a personal appointment together we can drill down on YOUR very best colors according to your Color Code. Discover your best colors when you take advantage of Phoenix Color Analysis. Beyond that take this as my professional opinion.**

I recently heard a young fashion expert talking to Ryan Seacrest on-air and he asked her about fashion “rules.” She said, “Forget about the rule that you can only wear certain colors, like colors for autumn or spring. You can wear any color you want to!”

Well, sure, you CAN wear whatever colors you want and like. You’re a grown-up and if wearing a certain color makes you happy, go for it!

However, most people look BETTER in colors that suit their complexion and their personality. So here are

the five colors that look good on everyone (recently updated to seven!)

First, a few notes.

1. If you are a red-head or a Warm Color Code, you’ll need to choose the warmer versions of these colors (an orange-red, a mossy green)

2. If you have silver or gray hair or are a Cool Color Code, you’ll need to choose the cooler versions of these colors (a blue-red, a royal purple) **Go to the end for your own graphic!**

Go here if you are wondering, What is my Color Code?

3. If you are neither of the above, these colors will look great on you. Just match the intensity of the color to how low-contrast or high-contrast your coloring is. In other words, if you have pale skin and light hair, a lavender purple will suit you better. If you have dark hair and darker skin, a deep purple will be smashing.

Here are the colors and they are versatile because they can be worn with gold or silver jewelry and can be paired with almost any neutral.

1:: Purple

I love to put men in purple shirts, especially if they are gray or going gray. It’s not the traditional blue that so many men wear and can perk up a pale OR tan complexion quite nicely. For women, purple goes beautifully with white, black, denim or gray and looks regal and sophisticated.

2:: Emerald Green

Green is fresh and energizing without being overly bold. Try green with navy blue or gray. A green scarf or green jewelry really jazzes up a plain outfit.

3:: True Red

It’s hard to find a red without orange or blue undertones but a neutral red is a power color and an instant confidence booster. I recommend that every woman owns a red wrap or shawl because it works for the holidays, Valentine’s Day and goes great with your little black dress.

4:: Royal Blue

Easy to wear for any season, royal blue works just as well in the office or at the beach and can dressed up or down. Plus it pops with black, white or gray and mixes well with other “pop” colors.

5:: Turquoise

Turquoise looks just as good with white shorts in the summer as it does with gray slacks in the winter. Not too fun and not too serious, it also happens to be MY secondary Signature Color!

TEAL is also very flattering on most skin tones! I especially love it for Deep and Soft Color Codes. It’s my new Signature Color!

 

And those are the five colors that look good on everyone!

~~NEW!~~ It was pointed out to me that I had under-represented the COOL Color Code so I created this graphic just for you! (That’s my mom in the purple!) Of the seven, my favorites for my COOL ladies are these: red, purple, royal blue, fuchsia and teal (or turquoise). The only one that’s tricky for COOL is emerald green because it can be a bit warm. I hope that helps!
