The #1 Colour Mistake Most Girls Make With Their Wardrobes

Hannah Almassi

Recently we discovered the exact hue that suits most skin tones, but upon interviewing Helen Venables, MD, of House of Colour (the image consultancy where you can get your personal colour spectrum expertly analysed), we also gained insight into the shade that most girls commonly are afraid to wear.

The reason we're specifically so fascinated with the colour wheel right now is thanks to the fact that designers have painted a veritable rainbow for S/S 17. And this doesn't appear to be a one-off seasonal frenzy: A quick glance at A/W 17 (did you see the amount of purple during LFW?), and you'll see that the all-black outfits we always relied upon are being superseded by super-bright shades, worn from head to toe.

Understandably, a little wardrobe therapy may be needed for some to be coaxed into the idea, and no more so, apparently, than when it comes to wearing green. Whether Kermit or sage, lime or jade, it's this hue that reportedly makes the most women feel apprehensive. "Lots of our clients have an aversion to green when, in fact, there are wonderful shades of green for everyone," Venables says.
