There are a few things I would like to explain to you regarding this, so that the next few articles will be more easily understogd. Women basically fall into four categories: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. This is de- termined by the colors one is :able to wear, therefore is re- f erred to as your color har- mony. I choose to refer to the four categories as summer, spring, winter and fall, but some color consultants refer to them as Spring Harmony, Blended Harmony, Earth Harmony and Contrast H~rmony. Four ex- amples of famous people whom we are all familiar and the co- lor harmony into which they fall are: Sophia Loren (Earth or Fall), Loretta Young (Blend- ed or Summer) Doris Day ~Bright or Spring), Elizabeth aylor (Contrast or Winter). If you were to dress all four of these ladies in the same 'color and style of clothing you can see ~hat they would not all . look their best because they are :opposites and cannot wear the 'same type of things. They .create a different individual look of their own. Therefore, tlle,,~,nl~s 1 plan to tell you in the next few articles are GEN- ERAL INFORMATION and may not work for you as an indivi- dual unless you know which of these four categories you fall into. I have been asked to explain how to plan a wardrobe. This is a very easy thing to do once you know a few basic rules. When I do a person's colors, I give them several neutral co- [ors. You choose one of your neutral colors as a basic color for your wardrobe, for instance for summer, you might choose white or beige, but not both. If you choose both, next summer you may be left with a good white skirt and beige blouse. Last year's coordinate to these two pieces may he worn out, which means you have to buy some- thing to go with BOTH pieces, but had you chosen either beige or white instead of both as your basic color, then next summer whatever was left would go to- gether and could be added to making you appear to have far more clothes rather than a hodge-podge that won't go to- gether and a fortune has to be spent to make it go together. You buy your accessories in your basic color --many well dressed women buy their acces- sories first rather than the other way around. After pur- chasing your accessories then you stay within a color range that will match those acces- sories. For instance, for sum- mer you have chosen beige and purchased beige shoes, bag, je- welry, etc. Now all your dres- ses, shorts, slacks, etc., should he in yellows, oranges, greens, anything that looks well with beige. The same program works for winter. If you have chosen beige for summer choose brown for winter then your summer and winter cloth- lag will interchange as well. You will find by using this method, you will spend much less on clothing and be much better dressed. When you are shopping know what YOu are shopping for. Any dress witl~ 2 colors in it, one should be your basic color. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a closet that is not crow- ded, yet have the proper cloth- es for the proper occasion at the proper time and above all, have a wardrobe that will be a compliment to you? IL cost less to dress correct- ly. The secret is the ability to edit fashion and choose the clothes that do something for you while rejecting those that are not suitable. The smartly dressed woman never fools her- self, is not afraid of wearing the look of individuality and is not hesitant inrepeating and ad- hering to those styles that tend to compliment or flatter her. It is a source Of great per- sonal satisfaction to know that- your clothes are correctly suit- ed to your face, figure andper- sonality. The smartly dressed woman does not necessarily have closets over flowing with fabulous clothes, does not spend all of their time shopping and are not at all overwhelmed by the latest fads in fashion. I have seen women who looked beautiful in inexpensive clothing because it was the right color and design for them. I have also seen women in very ex- pensive clothing that was very unbecoming, because it was the wrong color, etc. Money wast- ed because they didn't know how to shop. You must be sure a fashion is suitable for you, your life style and your budget. There are several factors that enter into deciding your most becoming styles: All de- sign has three basic principles: they are simplicity, proportion and balance. Also to be con- sidered are the principles of lines - the basic lines suited to you, the choice of colors and their coordinates, and finally, the selection of clothes for the proper occasion. NECKLINE EXERCISE: Lie on your back crosswise across the bed, with your legs on one side, your shoulders on the other, your head hanging down over the side of the bed. Lift your chin slowly to your chest. Try this only 3 times at first, gradually increase over a pe- riod of time to twenty-five. WEEKLY TIP: Take one teaspoon of honey during the day for quick energy.
