We are at our best when we feel comfortable, confident and at ease-when we know we look fantastic. That's when we nail a presentation, land a job, snag a date, and click with friends-and yes, all of this can be influenced by color. There's a secret to knowing what to wear and when to wear it so that you can maximize any opportunity, whether it's in love, at work, or with family. "The Color of Style" will give you the key to harmonizing your wardrobe colors with what you wear every day: your very own body.
You have 8 basic colors. Here's what they are and how to find them:
There are 5 colors that express who you are:
*"Your Essence Color" Your vulnerable color; your version of white, a skin tone that harmonizes the colors in the palm of your hand
*"Your Romantic Color" Your passion color, your version of red found by gently pinching a fingertip-or the color of when you blush
*"Your Dramatic Color" Your "look at me" color, your version of blue, found in the color of the veins in your wrist
*"Your Energy Color" The color that supports you when you need a pick me up, taken from the darkest part of your iris (but not the ring around the iris)
*"Your Tranquil Color" Your peaceful color, taken from the lightest part of your iris
And 3 neutral colors that complete your wardrobe basics:
*"Your Version of Black" the most flattering dark color for you, taken from the ring around your iris
*"Your Version of Brown" a more casual, medium-dark shade, taken from the darkest part of your hair
*"Your Version of Khaki" your best light color, taken from the lightest part of your hair
David Zyla's system shows how to wear each of these colors-as an accent in a print, an accessory, or a solid, and solves the mystery of what color to wear to any life event, from formal to casual, from job interview to first date. "The Color of Style" will tell you what colors your winter coat should be, your spring sweaters, your summer dresses, your business suit and your black tie outfit (stay tuned, because it's probably not black). Armed with the 8 colors, and your style DNA archetype (you have 24 to choose from), you'll spend less on clothes because you'll make fewer mistakes. And if you've already made a few bad choices, "The Color of Style" will show you how to fix them without spending a dime.
David Zyla's mission is to show you how to color yourself with your own pop- from-the-pack brand and what colors to wear to attract love, enhance your power, restore your energy, make a lasting impression, and show the world who you really are.

Review quote

"David's eye for color, style and shape is extraordinary, and his sense of style is always exciting. What I really love about "The Color of Style" is that he's found a way to make every woman feel like the best possible version of herself."
-Susan Lucci

"David didn't just give me a better sense of my own style; he didn't just save me from years of wardrobe fumbling. The palette he gave me represented a turning point: a decision to look and act like myself and see how much farther that would get me."
-Aaron Shure, Executive Producer, "Everybody Loves Raymond"
