Photos Explained

1st woman in patterned top2nd woman in dark olive-colored top

In these two photos, both women look good, despite wearing monochromatic color combinations, in other words, colors that are similar to either their skin or hair color. It is easy to see how the right print can draw further interest to the person.

These photos show how monochromatic colors can be less appealing, each in a different way. The pale khaki, though not terrible, doesn't enhance this woman's looks either. The bright red, in this second woman's case, overwhelms her and ends up looking gaudy.

Now look at the best and worst photo of this same woman side by side, so you can compare for yourself.
