Seasonal Color Analysis with Color Your Style

Color Your Style: It's Purpose...

This book promises to help you create your own "style renaissance" as you discover your authentic style by finding your true colors.

Authentic style: An integral, personal style that allows you to attract love, claim your power, balance your energy, and reveal who you truly are by choosing the colors, clothes and objects that express your authentic self. ~Color Your Style, David Zyla

Color Your Style: My Own Thoughts...

I think this book provides a great way to begin to identify your own coloring. Using the book, which targets eight essence colors, I was able to identify over 30 colors, which made it easy to confirm my season as a warm autumn.
What's helpful is that he suggests colors for each of the 8 essence colors he wants you to find, and they include warm colors and cool ones. After you have identified several colors, he helps you figure out which of the four is your season.

Color Your Style: Recommended...

I recommend this book as a starter kit for identifying your season. You will walk away from the book with at least 8 colors you can wear because you found them in your hair, eyes or skin. He also helps you identify your style archetype, and gives guidelines for how to dress your type.

Having trouble deciding which season you are? I'd be happy to help!

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints


  1. Hi Jeanine, I have this book and while i think it is a great read, I had trouble finding my colors from his instructions. I think it might be hard to do without either a good eye for color, or some professional training. For me, it is just so hard to really see myself. But I did like it the book and especially the archetype descriptions in the seasons. I wish there were some pictures and colors though.

  2. Hi Ann! I was wishing for pictures and colors, too, and imagine if there were picture examples of the suggested colors.

    You know, you may be right, because I re-read it after I was certified and found lots of colors I hadn't noticed before.

  3. I think this book was Great, I actually wrote a review about it and David Zara emailed me to Thank. YOu can find his comment in my Testimonials

    But Jeanine, I think you are absolutely right. It's a Great start and It answers a lot of questions.


  4. Hi Yelena! I agree, it's such a good place to start because it gets you to really look at yourself and begin to see all the colors in your skin, hair and eyes.

    I'll have to go look for his response!
