In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different, said Coco Chanel while bringing out the significance of one’s appearance in today’s world. In the fashion industry, seasonal color analysis as a tool to identify the colors that will be in harmony with other physical attributes of a person such as eye color, hair color, and skin color, has been used for decades now. Show My Colors app gives you a quick opportunity to know your color type without consulting an expert. The app is available for free on the Play Store and can be a great addition to your wardrobe selection paraphernalia.
If you are a person who is fashion conscious then you must have definitely heard people claiming that they are either a winter, a summer or a spring. If such phrases have left you intrigued and wondering where you fall into, then Show My Colors is the app for you. And given the fact that in today’s consumerist society appearance does matter a lot and people judge a person on it before they see their talent, an app like Show My Colors can help all those trying to look their best in their professional as well as everyday lives. You can also use it to enhance your wardrobe and on days you are feeling lazy but still want to look flawless.
The app has a quite stunning and premium-looking user interface that is as impressively easy to use. It gives you an option to choose either to go through a quiz to find out which color type fits you the best or you can enter it manually if you already know your type. The color type quiz has a bunch of simple, straightforward questions relating to your hair color, eye color, and skin color. The quiz result will give you the color type that you fall into out of the 12 types based on the updated color analysis model which includes your hue, value, and chroma.
Once you figure out your color type, the app will show you the base palette as well as the fashion color trend. Through an in-app purchase, you can also unlock additional features such as color maps and combinations. Show My Colors app also suggests the best colors, type of jewelry and some tips on color combinations, for instance, tips like combining black with teal for deep winter type. The app is also useful when you shop because it’s easier to fall prey to marketing and good styling if you aren’t aware of color theory.
On the flip side is the probable lack of accuracy in case a person finds it difficult to choose between the limited options given in the color type quiz. For beginners, the task of finding correctly the skin tone can be quite daunting without the help of an expert. Some additional information for such people would have gone a long way.
Research conducted by Dr. Mehrabian at UCLA suggests that 93% of how we are received by others is based on non-verbal elements of which visual element is a major component. This supports the world view that fashion icons such as Chanel propagated. So, if you are looking to become more familiar with what colors work for you in order to bring out your authentic individuality then Show My Colors app may be a good place for you to start.
