Your fashion color scheme first segment is neutrals. Note what you wear the most, stark whites or creams. If you wear stark whites, you more than likely have cool undertones to your skin. If you wear creams, you more than likely have warm undertones to your skin. Black is a basic for all and can add drama to any color scheme if you like elegant interiors.
