I was invited to a recent event at Dine’s stunning Mansion in Roundhay Leeds.
Here’s the colour wheel.
The romantic, the classic, the dramatic, the natural, the gamine, or the ingénue. And we should stick to this!
The idea is you work out your colours and your style and this governs your purchases. It’s about buying a small amount that’s versatile and is going to work with you not against you.
Here’s a little bit about each style.
The dramatic – often very enthusiastic and OTT people. They like to make a statement. Tend to be tall and slim and enjoy wearing angular clothing.

The classic – it is what it says on the tin. Formal, well presented, timeless. Think Channel. These people are elegant and understated.
The natural – relaxed, easy, casual and outdoorsy. These people look good in relaxed and flowing shapes and styles.
The gamine – boyish figure, tend to be straight up and straight down. Enjoy fashion influenced by make style.
The ingénue – delicate, neat, pretty and youthful. These ladies enjoy princess perfect fashion with frills and detail. They tend to be very soft and sincere people.

The romantic – curvaceous figures, these people enjoy the outdoors but also love dressing up. Think sexy and flirty but also soft and wholesome.
Some people also cross over to as many as three of the categories. For example I’m a classic, natural, dramatic. Where as my friend Hannah was an out and out romantic.
