Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.
It is on the whole probably that according to coloring, individuals may be classified as follows:
– cool types: golden hair, fair skin, pale pink cheeks with hint of blue, blue or gray eyes; blue-black hair with fair skin, blue or gray eyes;
– warm types: auburn hair, brown eyes, creamy skin, pink cheeks tinged with yellow rather than blue, some of this group have blue-gray eyes. Also those with dark-brown hair, brown eyes, olive skin, red-orange flush on cheeks.
Obviously, the cool type of people will find cool colors such as blues, grays, blue-greens and greens, their best choices with trimmings and accessories, if desired, in the warmer colors for contrast. The warm colors, however, should be toward the cool colors rather than too intensely warm.
The warm type girl, with auburn or brown hair and brown eyes and warm skin with a tinge of orange in it, will apparently look her best in the warm browns, oranges, reds, red-purples and the yellow-greens.
In this case, intermediate are between these two types – the fortunate persons who can wear all colors if the proper consideration is given to the correct proportions of colors and to the occasion on which they will be used.

“It’s a touch of fantasy that you want. It adds just a touch of color, and you feel very feminine.”
— Anna Sui
“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.”
— Coco Chanel, “Chanel”
“Fashion sighs after trends. I want timeless elegance.
Fashion has no time. I do. I say: Hello Lady, how can I help you?
Fashion has no time to even ask such a question, because it is constantly concerned with finding out:
What will come next?
It is more about helping women to suffer less, to attain more freedom and independence.”
— Yohji Yamamoto
“Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”
