I’m trying to figure out if I am value contrast high or medium high but I can’t determine if these pants are dark or medium dark? I asked my family over this holiday, but they cannot seem to come to a consensus either. But I did just learn how brightness affects depth, so maybe we’re overlooking that aspect… As a professional, would you mind shedding some light on this situation?
Here is a picture of the pants in the color Evening Olive — https://www.macys.com/shop/product/style-co-curvy-fit-skinny-fashion-jeans-created-for-macys?ID=11070747&pla_country=US&CAGPSPN=pla&cm_mmc=Google_Womens_PLA-_-RTW_Womens_Style_%26_Co_-_GS_Jeans-_-222719989646-_-pg1324507_m_kclickid_907d88df-442c-485b-981f-3c2ec37a7242_KID_EMPTY_933905444_49407169911_222719989646_pla-363233482024_787165655343USA__m_KID_&trackingid=424×1324507&m_sc=sem&m_sb=Google&m_tp=PLA&m_ac=Google_Womens_PLA&m_ag=Jeans&m_cn=RTW_Womens_Style_%26_Co_-_GS&m_pi=go_cmp-933905444_adg-49407169911_ad-222719989646_pla-363233482024_dev-m_ext-_prd-787165655343USA&catargetid=120156340017178016&cadevice=m&gclid=Cj0KCQiAh4j-BRCsARIsAGeV12B18_RO0bnGLpt1sLRfsNuXWqoShMqImtrjMxinoFu-CBgb4WDrDyUaAiWcEALw_wcB
They are medium dark to dark – it’s always hard to tell 100% in photos as cameras alter the depth of colours. You need to see them in person.
Wow thanks for such a speedy reply! I’ll keep looking into this. I’m pretty sure I do have some color dominance though, which concerns me because higher contrast with colorful… I’m worried I’ll appear clownish. Plus I’m a total INFP, so it kinda goes against my personality style.
Halsey (the singer) has some very similar visual qualities as me. Have you assessed her before? I’ve been trying to figure out on my own. I think she might be higher contrast, deep value (eye+hair). And I imagine her eyes make her neutral plus one color?
Halsey is colour dominant but more one colour with neutrals rather than multiple colours as she has brown eyes. Clownish only happens when it’s too many large block colours (particularly ones that don’t suit you) think mulitcoluored patterns, or just adding an accessory in an additional colour rather than lots of different coloured garments
Thank you so much Imogen. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate the time you invested in analyzing Halsey. This REALLY helped me better understand my own coloring, and what each dominance type can look like. I will also start incorporating my colors from my colorseason through accessories & smaller blocks like you said- that’s a great idea! I’ve had a definitive light bulb moment, thanks to you!
Hello! Is it possible for my eyes to be neutral if it often changes with my surroundings? (I’m trying to figure out if my eyes are colored or neutral.) For example, when I’m outside people always comment how green-y my eyes look due to the grass/trees. Last time I was in a log cabin, fellow campers pointed out how the walls brought out a “new” brown undertone in my eyes. I supposed a cross between brown & hazel is the best way to describe it? Thanks in advance!
