For preference, we recommend a shade of blue called "French blue," shown here in several examples. (But gentlemen, please don't wear the style of French blue shirt that comes with a white collar; to be most effective, the color needs to be as close to your face as possible.) Because women have more options in terms of suit colors, they might choose a French blue sweater or jacket. Can't find a shirt or blouse that's precisely this shade of blue? Go ahead and wear a lighter shade of blue. This works well not only in a television or video close-up, but when you're at the lectern or on stage as well. -focuses attention where you want it,on your face; and
-for those with light hair (blonde or red), white hair, or no hair, adds the visual emphasis and focus that darker hair provides for others.
