Elemental Wardrobe Color Palettes™
Elemental Wardrobe Color Palette Color Concepts™
warm | light | clear
The Fire palette consists of warm, clear, bright colors. This does not mean that it does not have dark colors, but even those colors have a lightness to them. A Fire’s coloring is typically clear and transparent, like that of a flame.
warm | rich | deep
The Earth palette is unique, as it consists of bright and muted colors. There are some Earths that can wear brighter colors, like the Fall time of year when the leaves begin to change. Think of pumpkins, reds, and bright yellows. As these colors begin to tone down, they become richer; eventually becoming muted.
There are some Earths that look best in the muted colors of the palette. And some look great in both the bright and muted colors.
cool | light | subtle-contrast
The AIR palette consists of soft, cool, muted tones. Their colors are “heathered” in nature, as the AIR’s personal coloring is as well. This soft contrast between the skin, hair, and eyes is typically accompanied by a soft, amiable personality. Mostly they are quiet and aesthetic by nature.
Air people gray softly and slowly. They tend to become more attractive as they get older. Their “colors” can get “too” bright for the total look because it can be overwhelming of their inner essence.
cool | dark | sharp-contrast
This Water palette is made of dark, vivid colors and is typically best worn in sharp contrast. A Water has a hi-contrast between the skin, hair, and eyes, which is why the colors from this palette work so well when worn. They should avoid earth tones around the face completely. Particularly the “olive” complexion.
Be careful not to mistake this complexion type as warm, because it has a blue (cool) undertone as all Waters do. It’s called olive because the skin has a green cast. Although technically, olive is a warm-green color. An olive complexion sounds better than a green complexion.

Wardrobe Management is a method of organizing your wardrobe and determining what clothing articles you need to add or replace. This method will help make dressing for any occasion easier.
Wardrobe Evaluation is the key to Wardrobe Management. You risk wasting time and money if you do not begin here. We created the following steps to help you organize your current wardrobe. These are meant to be guidelines. Incorporate your own ideas and do what works best for you. We begin by analyzing and organizing your wardrobe.
Step 1: Analyze
Step 2: Organize
The next step after you organize your wardrobe is to create a wardrobe “Checklist”. This list will contain those items you need to replace and those items you need for your wardrobe. This will become your shopping guide. It allows you to plan and save accordingly. This process will reduce your shopping time by 50% and your mistakes by 100%.

Personal Clothing Style Profile™
One’s Personal Clothing Style Profile™ is based on the four basic clothing styles of Classic, Dramatic, Romantic, and Natural. Many people are the personification of one of these styles; however, many can be a combination.
One’s style is determined by his or her physical characteristics and personality traits. The Personal Branding Center has developed a system to help identify a primary and a secondary style, that when combined creates a look of to its own.
One’s physical characteristics have a huge impact on how a professional image is developed and maintain. These consist of one’s face shape and body type. We call these “framing components”. How one frames his or her body help project the inner essence of who one is.
Knowing your face shape is critical. It helps determine how to select the best “framing components” that work best with your face shape: haircut/style, eye-wear, collar lines, and accessories for women.
For example, if your face shape is similar to that of a diamond, it simply means your forehead and jawline are narrower than your cheekbones. This also means that your facial features (hairline, jawline, nose, chin) which make up the silhouette of your face shape, are more angular. This face shape is often referred to as having high cheekbones.
There are three body types: angular, combination, and curved. We are either one of these or a blend of these. Your body type determines which silhouette lines, fabric weights, patterns/prints, details and fit that best accommodates you.
Details Define Distinction
Each of the following will be addressed and ensured that these details are polished and refined.
