What's Your Season?
Wednesday January 25, 2012 1 Comment


What's Your Season? 

season color image

Analyzing your skin tone and (natural) hair and eye color can help you determine which colors work best on you.

To start, find the undertone color of your skin by looking at the inside of your arm in natural daylight. Then, use the list below to decide which season most accurately describes your complexion.

Winter (think Kim Kardashian, Lucy Liu, Courtney Cox, Catherine Zeta Jones) Winter is a cool tone. People with winter complexions have blue or pink/rosy undertones. Skin can be pale and porcelain white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Winters are generally brunettes with deeply colored eyes. Many Asians and African Americans fall into this category. Natural white-blondes may also be winters. Those with the winter color profile have a lot of depth to their coloring and a lot of contrast between their hair color, eye color and skin tone.

Best Colors for Winters are hues that are sharp, stark and clear. You will look best in intense, rich colors, like black, navy blue, red, and hot pink. For lighter colors, wear bright white or icy pastels, such as like cool blues and pinks.

Worst Colors for Winters: Avoid dressing in earthy tones and subdued colors like beige, orange and gold. They will make you look faded and ashen.

Summer (think Gwenyth Paltrow, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon) Summer is also a cool tone and with blue and/or pink undertones. Their skin is very pale and pink. Summer coloring usually occurs in natural blondes, and even pale-skinned brunettes with pale eyes. More often than not, winters are brunettes and summers are natural blondes.

Best Colors for Summers: Summers have a low level of contrast between their hair, eye color and skin tone. For you to look your best, choose soft neutrals and pastels, as well as muted colors with cool undertones. Powder blue, dusty pink, mauve, lavender, plum, and pale yellow are all great color choices.

Worst Colors for Summers: Avoid intense, vivid hues because they will look harsh and drown you out. Also stay away from earth tones and orange, which will wash you out.

Autumn (think Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman) Autumn is a warm tone and people with this complexion have golden undertones in their skin, like a pale peach, golden beige or golden brown. Many redheads and brunettes with golden brown eyes fall into this category. However, golden blonde and black hair coloring can also fall into this range.

Best Colors for Autumn: Rich golden, spicy and earthy colors will accent your complexion. Therefore, look for a warm undertone when selecting a color. You can wear both muted and rich warm colors that are seen in autumn leaves and spice colors, such as camel, beige, olive, orange, gold, and dark brown. You will also look great in a rich warm grey.

Worst Colors for Autumn: Stay away from clear, bright colors and black and white, which will make your look tired and faded. Also steer clear of pastels and blue tones, which will look cold against your complexion and give you a pale appearance.

Spring (think Lindsay Lohan, Anna Kournikova, Mischa Barton) Spring is also a warm tone. People of this complexion have subtle golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach. Springs have extremely light, ivory skin color, with usually natural golden blonde, auburn, or strawberry blond hair. Springs also have very clear, light blue and green colored eyes. Freckles and rosy cheeks are also characteristics of this group. If you can’t decide weather you are an autumn or a spring, springs tend to have pale eyes while autumns have dark eyes.

Best Colors for Spring: Springs can wear very pale, soft colors, such as peach, camel, golden yellow,golden brown, and aqua. You will also look fabulous in ivory, bright greens, true reds, clear blues and coral. Your colors may be particularly hard to find because they can never be too muted or too dark.

Worst Colors for Spring: Avoid black and white, which are too contrasting for you. Also stay away from dark, dull colors.



 

Our Match Maker Round-up of Jovani Vs. Jovani!

Which of these styles is your favorite without regarding their price?   

Jovani Vs. Jovani

Jovani Dress 4650 $4,000.00 VS. Jovani Dress 172001 $640.00

What shape are you?
Tuesday January 24, 2012 2 Comments


Beauty comes in all shapes. What shape are you? 

body type image

Hour Glass (think Salma Hayek) This shape is coveted by many, but enjoyed by few! With this type of figure, pretty much anything goes. Lucky you!

Triangle (think Jennifer Garner) You can choose to emphasize the upper body with a dress that has good support and a deep neckline. If you want to de-emphasize the upper body, wear a dress that attracts the eye to the waistline.

Pear (think Jennifer Lopez) Try an a-line or full shirt to de-emphasize your hips. Try a fitted top to draw more attention to the upper portion of the body.

Rectangle (think Kate Moss) You can create "curves" with a bell-shaped dress that draws attention to the bust line. Dresses with belts also help create curves.

Apple (think Renée Zellweger) Try an empire waist. You won't have to worry about it being too tight on the waist or hips. A shorter dress will bring attention to your legs rather than your mid-section.



 

Our Match Maker Found a Match to a Classic Marilyn Monroe Gown!
Tuesday January 24, 2012 No comments yet


Introducing Timeless Tuesdays - a day in which our match maker honors the ageless style and fashion of old Hollywood! The first pick is the amazingly beautiful Marilyn Monroe wearing her classic pink gown in the 1953 movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”. Marilyn sang the notorious line “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, but we happen to think so are dresses!

Our match maker found that Sherri Hill Dress 1480 ($500.00) was the perfect match to Marilyn’s gown. It’s silky, full-length, strapless and who can miss that big beautiful bow accent on the back! Truly timeless!



 

A Prom-goer Seeks Fashion Advice from NewYorkDress Stylists!
Tuesday January 24, 2012 No comments yet


NewYorkDress.com supporter Christina wrote in from Egypt to seek the expert advice of our stylist team in hopes of getting dress, hair and make-up suggestions for her prom this year. Standing at a petite 5 feet tall and having a pear shaped body, our stylists recommended Allure Dress 6410N ($338.00) as a top dress choice. The empire waist and short length of the skirt will help create an elongated body illusion.

Out Stylist’s Suggestion for Christina!

Our stylists paired this gorgeous dress with Benjamin Walk “Tahiti” shoes ($117.00) because of their delicate simplicity.

For her hair, the stylists suggested an up-do (pictured above) which will show off the dress’ sweetheart neckline and her shoulders. This will also help create an elongating effect. Finally, for her make-up – our experts recommended a natural smoky eye and a neutral tone for the lips like a sheer coral gloss.

We think she’ll look gorgeous! To check out these and other styles visit our Prom 2012 dress page or our “As Seen In” section for styles featured in Seventeen Prom and Teen Prom magazines!
