Summer tones (COOL)
Summer/cool types look good in lilacs and pale blues and should choose pastels and soft neutrals with rose and blue undertones. Stay away from orange and blacks.

Winter (WARM)
Wear colours that are sharp, stark and clear such as white, black, blue, red and magenta/cerise/pink.  Avoid subdued tones like cream, beiges, biscuits and dusky terracottas.

Autumn (WARM)
Select colours with golden undertones, like camel, beige, orange, gold and dark brown. Avoid colours with blue tones, like navy or indigo. White is a good colour but should be worn with another colour e.g. couple a white dress with gold or orange accessories. 

Spring (WARM)
Colours like peach, ochre, and coral and orange go well with this skin tone. Light types should choose soft or pastel shades while clear types can wear more contrasting colours. If wearing red, choose a shade which has more orange in it like a scarlet red or sangria

Color coding is an art and you shouldnt attempt it yourself from reading a book.

Ask the expert for her advice and save yourself time and money.

Remember , you can never change once you are coded. Its not in the ageing process but in the blood
