Color Coordinating Purple
Did you know that purple is one of the rarest colors in nature?
In ancient times, the cost and rarity meant that only the richest and royalty wore it. In medieval times it was also associated with magic and sorcery.
While today it is not an uncommon color, it has retained its association with spirituality, nobility and creativity.
Here are several ways to coordinate purple into your everyday style.
1️⃣ Team it with gold, yellow or red to display your creative side.
2️⃣ Wear purple with neutrals such as camel, navy, or white.
3️⃣ Coordinate it with olive for fashion forward appeal.
4️⃣ Go monochrome with deep shades of purple to create an elegant image and remember to add textural differences for added interest and style.
Is purple one of your favorite colors? Do you know which purples best suit your coloring and can be an asset in your wardrobe?

Before you do any sort of decluttering, spring cleaning or an image revamp, it’s always best to start with learning where you’re at: What’s your color direction? Your body type? What body features and characteristics do you have? Are you dressing according to your proportions and scale?
Check out the launch video here:

Published rates for Holiday Bundles are only applicable for Quezon City, San Juan, Pasig City, Bonifacio Global City and Makati locations only.

Can You Do Your Own Color Analysis?
Is it possible to do your own color analysis?
Without proper training and the right color tools, it is difficult to do your own accurate color analysis. Color consultants are trained professionals who are certified to offer the color analysis service and use specialized color tools.
What Happens During a Personal Color Analysis Session?
With all the color analysis hype on Youtube, Tiktok and Instagram, I’ve been getting tons of queries on my color analysis services. One of the common questions I get is “What happens during a session?”
With my specialized color tools and a mirror right in front of you, I lead you to discover your color temperature, color intensity and color value. In the session, I also diagnose what you could be doing wrong with your colors and make recommendations that best suit your color direction and personality.
Personal Color Analysis: Your Hair Color Matters!
Your hair color matters! Sometimes you can get your clothes and make-up colors right, but the wrong hair color can throw off the harmony in your look.
The Basic Color Sets You Should Have in Your Wardrobe
Colors can affect you and others, not just visually but psychologically as well. There are certain colors that have an aesthetically pleasing effect on you and then there are those that do the opposite.
Have you ever experienced being told by your friends or colleagues that “You look extra nice today!” “You’re glowing! Are you in love?” and you wonder what it is because you know you didn’t do anything special in particular for that day? It could be that you were wearing a color that complemented your skin so well that it made it lift, making you appear healthier and brighter.
I fell in love with color dressing after learning about it in finishing school many years ago. While I’ve always been a lover of bright and intense colors, there was also a period in my life when I just resorted to simple black and white because I thought, it would be a good way to just simplify my wardrobe. Sure, having to choose between two colors won’t require much time but it is very limiting. You want to be able to play around with colors and use them to your advantage because these can help you as you carve your personal brand, it helps convey your personality visually and also exudes what you’re feeling. Remember we communicate who we are even before we get the chance to say something, so it’s important to have that memorable visual impact.
Before you go on a wild shopping spree, I recommend that you do a wardrobe and lifestyle audit first to see what you already have. This also allows you to assess where you are in your life, if your current wardrobe pieces still serve you and what basics you may be lacking that you need to prioritize. As you assess your current lifestyle and wardrobe condition, it’s important to note these basic color sets that will help you get started.
Neutrals are important because they’re the easiest to mix and match with your other color groups. You can wear the same neutral-colored bottoms and mix it up with your other colored tops and accessories. Remember, it’s not about having tons of clothes in your wardrobe. You want to be able to use and re-use all the items in your closet by creating multiple looks through clever mixing and matching.
Now you might be wondering, what part of my wardrobe should be neutrals, lights and in accent colors? As you work towards a more functional wardrobe, make sure that you have the following items in neutral colors:
- Work slacks or chinos
- Jeans (Dark wash, navy blue or regular blue jeans)
- Pencil or Pleated Skirts
- Business Coat or Blazer
- Long-sleeved button-down shirt
- Basic round neck or v-neck shirt
- Basic shoes like pumps, heels, flats, loafers and casual sneakers
The items in the light color group are best worn as tops (shirts, polos, blouses) and dresses, to be combined with the neutrals and the accent colors.
The accent colors add zest to an outfit that may look bland, lack interest or too safe. Depending on your lifestyle and profession, it is best to keep accent colors as focal pieces to maintain an elegant chic look. However, if you’re going for a bold look that speaks volumes, playing with color intensities can convey your creativity and adventurous style.
