This woman was part of a program we presented for a corporate women’s retreat. She was making the standard mistake of believing that black and white is the universal choice for a professional wardrobe… But because the contrast between black and white is so much greater than the contrast in her facial color pattern, the clothing was stealing all the attention – totally overpowering her. We kept her black pants and top, but introduced colors in the cardigan and alternate jacket that echo her beautiful golden skin tone and hair highlights. See how much more readily you can focus on her face, and therefore her communications?
The relaxed styling of both the cardi and and the cascade jacket allow are both comfortable and professional without being dated or stuffy.
