We are continuing in our series about finding your best colors, based on not just your personal coloring but your personality as well.
Patricia is a long time friend, real-woman-style-icon and super-model for The Wright Fit. She and her husband Robert recently moved to North Carolina. When Patsy and Uncle Bob (ha) aren’t gallivanting around the Carolina’s, she works part-time at the funky Banana Moon Boutique in Hendersonville, NC. Learn more about Miz Patsy in the 2015 Fall Style Guide, a collaborative project with Jen Snyder, Sarah Bacon and myself.
* Dominant Color Temperature: Warm and Cool
* Skin Tone: Medium Beige
* Hair Color: Dark Brown with a hint of red
* Eye Color: Dark Brown
*Coloring Contrast Level: Medium
Since Patricia’s skin tone is medium, and her hair and eyes are darker, clothes that have medium contrast levels look great (vs low contrast – think monochromatic or high contrast- think black and white) because they harmonize with her natural contrast coloring. She’s displaying this in all 3 pictures. Also, Patricia will look best in the most saturated swatches, using the lighter colors for accessorizing.
* Personality traits: Go-getter, organized, focused, determined, fun, extremely thoughtful, kind and loyal
* Color Resonance as it relates to personality: Bright Shaded
(Resonance is the visual impression of a hue in relation to the pure pigment. It is the result of how a pigment is lightened or darkened. The 5 resonance qualities are:
Washed = pure pigment + thinned with water , colors appear clear, pretty and crisp
Tinted = pure pigment + white, colors appear light hearted, sweet and innocent
Shaded = pure pigment + black, colors appear serious, profound and mysterious
Toasted = pure pigment + brown, colors appear warm, mellow and luscious
Muted = pure pigment + complement color, colors appear soft, gentle and subtle
