Tip
Color Blink Test To help you decide if the colour works for you or not, do this simple blink test ...  stand in front of the mirror and close your eyes. Then re-open them quickly  ... notice where your eyes go.
 
Are you looking at your clothes or your face? If you are looking at the clothes, the colour is most likely not quite right for you. If you are looking straight at your face, it's probably a winner!

Wearing a suit jacket - image breaker or image builderImage Breaker or Image Builder 
 
"Should I wear a jacket or not" in the section "Image Breaker or Image Builder" provides insight into the image created with wearing a jacket.  A timely topic for this issue ... since the jacket is the most important item in building an efficient wardrobe. Plus, it is the most frequently asked questions by clients.
