    What if I like a color but it isn’t “recommended” for me?

     Don’t sweat. Wear what you love, if you like it… who the heck cares, it is YOUR wardrobe after all. If you love a color but feel it washes you out, simply wear the color with an accessory (scarf, necklace or earrings) in a color from your recommendations to help bring that color to your face. For example, if you love black, but are a cool/summer and have to be careful with black, throw on a coral necklace to keep some color by your face and you will look fabulous.
