I wish at times there were better pictures and more indepth study but it makes sense. I always knew I looked better in certain colors and this book takes time to make sure this makes sense. Some of the seasons are harder to guess though, and the whole cool versus warm undertones in skin can get confusing. ( )

I owned this book years back, then have no idea what happened to it, so got it again as I remember it being so useful. The color combinations make a lot of sense. It's dated but the color matches aren't really something that goes out of style. Since this book I mainly shop by "my colors" and finds it works every time. The month stuff is a bit confusing and I do suspect many people are a mixture more than the book allows and wish there were easier ways of telling - this part could stand to be updated! ( )

This book explained why I hate gray and why I've always felt uncomfortable wearing it. I've found it to be a reliable wardrobe guide, and while shopping you can just ignore all the stuff on the racks that's just not going to suit you. The non-color guidance is fairly standard, and the illustrations are out of date. It really needs to be updated. ( )

If you already understand how colors work, you don't need this. In fact, you'll probably find the color palettes confining. I'm not sure it works all that well for people of color, either, although there are non-white models. It seems like people of color are pretty much limited to one or two of the four palettes. However, if you're light-skinned and clueless about color, this is a kind of "colors for dummies" book. Very useful, and has helped me immensely. ( )

This is a great book, if you can look past the seriously dated photographs. The original "color" system, and something I use in my everyday life. I definitely believe in using color to its best advantage. ( )
