Have you ever gone to a clothing store and felt so overwhelmed by the options that you just up and walk out?

I know I have. One step in a Forever 21 and I feel like I’ll be there forever picking through endless racks and pondering the meaning of “21” since I’ve already cracked the code for the first word in the store’s name.

The process feels like taking a pop quiz — and I have no idea what the right or wrong answers are.

And I know I’m not alone. I’m positive there are countless others who also walk into boutiques, car dealerships, furniture store, mosey up to a makeup counter, or flip through a magazine looking for the right hair color, only to be plagued by how to even start the decision-making process.

Well, I have found a way to narrow down your choices.

Everyone has certain colors, based on certain physical attributes, that gives us a certain type of charisma. These colors flatter, comfort, and empower us, allowing anyone to stand out from the crowd and be the best person they can possibly be.

Knowing what colors to choose is a helpful way to narrow down your options, so find out yours by taking our quiz below. When I found mine, I was relieved and surprised — but ultimately, it was completely spot on!
