Personal color analysis is a fascinating tool that women choose to either embrace or bristle against. You can put me in both camps because the subject fascinates me and I believe the more we know, the better armed we are to make smart choices with what to wear. This week I’m sharing my online color analysis with Red Leopard.
Over the last several months I’ve had four online personal color analyses to see if it is a viable alternative to being draped in person. Two weeks ago I shared my Online Personal Color Analysis With Your Color Style. Then last week I shared my Virtual Color Analysis With Dress Your Colors.
Red Leopard’s virtual analyses are conducted in much the same way as the previous two. I worked with Manina who had me send her as many photos of myself as possible, without makeup, draped in every color I could find. She suggested I use any and every fabric so I took her at her word;)
I draped myself with tablecloths, tea towels, jackets, and tees from my husband’s wardrobe. I also draped myself with a few of my grandson’s things. As with the other virtual consultations, I took photos with my camera on a tripod in varying lighting conditions.
After Manina decided on my colors, we did a zoom call to discuss. She typed me as a Soft Autumn. The Soft Autumn palette has a wide range of colors which she tested against my images and narrowed them to the above colors that she feels are the most flattering for me.
Unfortunately, Red Leopard could only analyze me based on the overtone they saw in photos of my skin, which is a poor measure of what is in harmony with my coloring. I am not warm, nor am I am autumn so their conclusion was wrong. They may be, and I suspect are, successful with in-person drapings, but their virtual typing is inaccurate and unreliable.
So what do you think?

I’ll be back next week with my fourth virtual color analysis.
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel fabulous and confident!
