Had colours done (Autumn) but can't find any clothes in these colours
I've had my colours done & am an Autumn. I could see how much better they made me look & so have decided to try and only buy clothes in those colours from now on. Went shopping today and couldn't find anything! I know it's meant to make shopping easier knowing your colours but what on earth do you do if you can't find the colours anywhere?! I just want some basics for work & home to get me started as currently my wardrobe is full of black & grey which does nothing for me. Can anyone help please?
I'm Autumn too. For a few years it was very easy because there was a lot of moss green and rusty colours in the shops, but I agree it is much more difficult at the moment.
I wear a lot of light grey, and various orangey shades of pink, if that makes sense at all, those are quite easy to get at the moment.
For brighter colours, some of the more greeny, less blue, shades of turquoise fall into the Autumn colour palette.
It gets easier actually - I had my colours done about 15 years ago and now find that although I always carry my colour swatches in my bag, every time I get them out I find that the thing I am looking at is spot on for colours, it seems that I am now always drawn to the right colours.
Sadly autumn colours are usually available in the autumn season. There doesn't even seem to be much in ivory/cream for the spring. H&M are brilliant as are Zara but I've not looked much this season.... yet.
