Color Types (2)
The Gold color type looks best in rich, warm colors of clothing and accessories. Yellows,
oranges, browns, reds, even warmer shades of purple can look good. If lighter shades of color are desired, it's best to go with bright
shades as opposed to pastels. Shimmering metallic fabrics in copper, bronze and gold flatter this type's coloration. As a rule, the Gold
type should avoid shades of blue and green, as these colors tend to clash with the individual's natural coloring.
The Silver type covers the other two seasonal archetypes, Winter and Summer. The Silver
type has skin tones in shades of ivory and cream, tends to have hair colors in cooler, ash tones, although the hair can range from dark
(blue-black) to very pale blondes (platinum or bright yellow blonde). Eye colors can, of course, vary through the normal spectrum, but do
tend toward pale blue and green.
Silver types look best in cooler colors of clothing and accessories. Blues, greens, soft
grays, and cool violets enhance the delicate beauty of the Silver type. Light shades - pastels and muted colors - are especially
flattering, although deep jewel-tones of Emerald green and Amethyst violet are great choices for festive occasions. When you opt for
metallic fabrics, remember that you want to stick to silvers and platinum or perhaps try an iridescent lame`. The rule for colors to
avoid as a Silver type are reds and oranges as these colors will leave the individual looking washed out.
