You may be a Dominant Type 3 (Types & Tones)Choleric* personality if you identify with a majority of these adjectives and you have the facial features said to be associated as well. Of course you will have the other features in a lesser degrees, the next one being your Secondary. For all of the types' adjectives, go here.  The neutrals each type wear.

If you know you are a Type 3, or you are experimenting, one of the first things you're going to start doing is evaluating the clothes in your closet and seeing what works, what needs to be put in storage (don't throw it out right away!), what you need to buy, and what could be modified!

This page is about how to modify your wardrobe, so you can get the most out of what you already have. Mostly how to change color, but also design lines, etc.

Black for Autumns

  • No black (unless Dark Autumn): Try reverse dye with bleach to change your black clothes into rich tones of neutrals and rusts.
