The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!” – Coco Chanel

Understanding color in your wardrobe can sometimes be as important as what you choose to wear. Colors carry emotion, so the color you wear can deliver a powerful statement about you. Here are some basic guidelines when you want your statement to reflect the occasion.

Navy or Black – Dressy and Elegant. Power suit. A must for speaking engagements. Unique stripes, patterns and interesting shadow weaves make this a good business suit.

Charcoal Gray – Strictly Business. Denotes confidence and authority. This is also a great travel suit because lint is not seen as easily.

Blue Gray – Good business color, “Firm but Fair” suit.

Black & White – Traditional houndstooth, glen plaid, birdseye.

Earthtone – Olive, Tan, Brown. Nice for a change of pace, Rapport-creating suit, good staff meeting suit. Relaxed elegance.
