Wear Yourself, Zyla Style: Work Capsule

Zyla says you don’t need a dozen outfits, only three basics…

The Basics

Work Capsule

Zyla Work Capsule

(1) One authoritative suit or dress in your version of black. 

This color, for you, is the color of the ring around your iris. My black is a deep olive green. Yours might be a midnight blue, a charcoal, an espresso brown or another gorgeous color. This becomes your formal color, great for presentations or important meetings.

(2) A dress in your version of brown.

This color comes from the deepest color in your hair. You can find it by looking at the underside, and Zyla suggests using a magnifying mirror to discover colors you have no idea are there. My brown is a bittersweet chocolate or chestnut brown. What would yours be?

This dress is more relaxed and is good for demonstrating support or teamwork, and might be a good choice when there’s no important meeting w/ the boss.

(3) A blouse and/or skirt in your khaki as backdrop for a scarf in your dramatic color (the color of your veins) or another accent color.

For me, one of my khaki colors is khaki, or camel. The way to find your khaki is to find the lightest color in your hair, which, found in natural lighting with a magnifying glass, might surprise you!

(4) Accent colors in one of your five “true” colors.

Speaking of accent colors, these provide the “drama” referred to in the quote above. The true colors are found by looking at the palm of your hand, the deepest and lightest colors in your eyes, the “pinch” or flush color (pinching your finger), and the color of your veins.

Tomorrow, we'll try the same formula for a more casual mom or mom blogger wardrobe…

"When we find the set that enhances you above all the others, what we have really uncovered are the exact pigments already in your skin, in your body. When you then wear the colors you already are, you look like magic because your person and your attire is sending the same wavelength of energy to the viewer." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
