This woman 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 skin tone and hair highlights.  See how much more readily you can focus on her face, and therefore her communications?

About Nancy Nix Rice

I help other women feel confident about how they look every day - regardless of their age, budget, lifestyle or the size tag in their pants - so they put wardrobe concerns on the back burner and go share their gifts with the world.
