How to Wear Any Color
(I actually own the 1985 Color Me Beautiful version and haven't read the revised, which looks like it contains a couple of intriguing additions: wardrobe planning and hairstyles. Notably, Doris Pooser worked extensively with color analysis in Japan and includes seasonal color identification charts for those of African and Asian descent.)
As illustrated in my recent How a Blonde Can Wear All Black, one can create a harmonious and pleasing appearance even when wearing an unflattering color. To do so effectively, the color must be worn ... in combination with a color ... that will emphasize your most dominant color characteristic . (Doris Pooser)
In my studied opinion, this still represents a compromise. What could be more artistically pleasing than a wardrobe based on your own personal coloring ? But at times we have no choice. Wearing a compromise color can be done if you use the tools you have to look your best. Now you know.
