In light of the ceremony (complete with an Alexander McQueen tribute) and the a-mazing amount of Olympic golds, silvers and bronzes we brought home from London this year (gooooo Team USA!), what better way to celebrate then with a re-evaluation of the metals in your wardrobe and maybe a few new lust-worthy inspiration pieces? I thought so too.
We all have our fav metals (i.e.; I always reach for the gold first!), but which one(s) best suit your skin tone and how to choose for the fast-approaching fall season? Here’s a how-to guide to turn you into a metal matching and mixing pro!
If you’ve ever gotten a color analysis by a personal stylist or tried out a makeup product at your local Bloomies, you may already have an idea of where you fall in this category, in which case it is safe to move to Step 2. If not, you’ve come to the right place. Try out the simple tests below and find out!
• Look at your veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they more of a blue or a green/yellow? Blue = cool. Green/Yellow = warm.
• Look in your closet. Do you typically choose white/black tops or neutrals such as ivory/brown tops. White/Black = cool. Ivory/Brown = warm.

• Midnight Blue & Gold • Black & Silver OR Gold • Burgundy & Gold OR Bronze • Purple & Pewter • Brown & Copper • Emerald & Gold
As with anything, there are exceptions to the rules (yes, even the metal matching and mixing!). Give me a shout and find out how-to best create a daily wardrobe that complements your individual skin tone. I do love talking wardrobe.
