Hi gals! I pray you are well and gearing up for summer break....do any of us REALLY take a break? I try to, but if you're anything like me, you most likely have to force yourself to, or carve out time to make sure you do it. I hope you are thinking about something fun you'll be doing this summer and it makes you smile when you think about it.
I think I've sort of been on a 'mind-break'. I'm not sure that's the word, but recently, my mind seems to want to rest. It might be because I'm coming off my busy season, but gracious, how long can one's mind take a break? LOL. I actually forgot that yesterday was my regular blog post day so as you can see, this is Thursday, and it's What to Wear Wednesday's post..haha!
This is the LAST post in our series on COLOR. Today we talk about SOFT....you know who you are...you're the gals who can't wear black...or rather SHOULDN'T wear black because of your medium coloring...also because black makes you look a whole lot older. Can you wear black on the bottom half of you? Well, you can, but I'd recommend just moving it on out completely because unless you're an X body type (balanced), then the black bottom will just be an attention-getter...cause the majority of body types gain weight somewhere below the waist....tummy, hips, thighs, butt....so even though black is considered a 'slimming' color, (but so is any dark color, like brown, navy, charcoal) it also will go completely against coordinating with your DCC (dominant color characteristic).
So who is SOFT? Well, if you've ever described your hair as: dishwater blonde, mousy brown, dark blonde to light brown...then you might be SOFT. If you have light to medium skintone and pretty much any color eye, and you have at least 2 of those qualities I just described, then you might be a SOFT.
Take a look at some pics of SOFT gals:
Now let's take a look at some makeup that would be pretty on a SOFT. Keep in mind the most important thing is for you to keep your makeup natural looking....when it gets too dark or bright, it becomes clown-like....so be careful when applying lips and eyes, especially. Therefore, all makeup for a SOFT should be 'medium' in intensity, as you will see below.

So how's a SOFT woman/gal to dress?
Think in terms of nothing too bright, dark or light. Medium colors is your way of thinking. Take a look at some pretty colors for a pretty soft woman:
Keeping in mind that if you are only going to have ONE purse or handbag in your wardrobe, then your best bet is to match your hair in a close manner. If you want MORE than one, then a pop color is great too...take a look at some beauties!
I kind of like these last purses myself!
I hope that helps all of you Soft sisters! Lots of love to you! I think I forgot to name a LIGHT winner...so let me do that now....the winner is: ELIZABETH!!!!! Email your mailing address to me at Shari@FashionMeetsFaith.com and I'll send out your swatches.
