What Color IS Taupe Anyway?
By Dani Slaugh and Judith Rasband
Taupe is a very hard color to wear. Not sure what color taupe is? Well if you can’t decide if the color is gray or brown, it’s probably taupe, a soft grayed brown. It’s a common personal body color, a muted wardrobe neutral, and tricky to work with. But for clothes to harmonize with light, medium, or dark taupe-colored hair, the degree of cool grayness in the taupe clothes must be the same as in the hair or they will fight or clash with one another. Taupe colored clothes and hair must repeat or match perfectly. This concept also applies to eye and skin coloration. Beyond direct repetition of a personal body color, you can wear warmer or cooler versions of nearly all other hues. Wondering if there's taupe in YOU? Schedule your Color Sense Clinic HERE.
