Return of the Salty Jacket
First, a clarification or two:
- Read the word "blazer" to mean any jacket or sweater.
- Most of the color combinations I suggest can be inverted, the jacket color becoming the shirt color.
Using a personal coloring-based wardrobe plan, you would expect to be able to wear a jacket in any color present in your own coloring. You would be right. But here's the trick to wearing your skin color next to your skin:
- Separate the garment from your face with a swath of contrasting fabric.
- Choose an accent color from Beauty is in the Eye ... or use your lipstick color.
Would you like an illustration? How about a tan-skinned person in a camel jacket? Now picture that person wearing a crisp white shirt with the collar outside the jacket, separating the jacket from the face. A look both comfortable and chic.
