Whether your next appearance is before the television cameras or a ballroom full of listeners, consider your coloring when choosing an outfit. Those of you who with light hair (red or blonde), white hair or no hair should be wearing a dark suit to bring your facial features forward. Women can get the same effect while avoiding black and navy by choosing darker shades in many colors--from garnet to purple. You may love that winter white ensemble or the khaki tan suit, but save them for a day when you're not front and center with a crowd or a cameraman. If your facial features are fair, consider dark-rimmed glasses and eye makeup to further draw focus to your face. Want to enhance your skin tone, no matter its color? See our tip on wearing blue close to your face, in a shirt, blouse or jacket.
