designer Janie Bryant writes about her thought process for giving each character's wardrobe a verydistinctcolour palette to enforce their personality, history andaspirations. A good example are the three lading ladies of the first seasons: Joan, Peggy and Betty.

Peggy’s favourite colour on the other hand is a hot shade ofmustardto show her (initial) innocence andfrumpiness, whereas Betty’s wardrobe featured lots ofpastel [pæˈstel]shades to represent the classic 60s suburban[sə'bɝbən]dream.

At the beginning, your style might still be relatively undefined but overtime, as you train your eye, your aesthetic preferences will become more and more apparent until a coherent themecrystallizes. If you look closely, you can spot this evolution on many pinterest boards, where people’s first pins are often quite scattered but eventuallyconvergeand follow a single style. Sometimes, revealing your colour style is more aboutsubtractingthan anything else: Many people already have a preference for colours that has remained relatively stable since childhood, but might have adjusted that preference according to current trends or watered it down with other random colours they found in the shops. In that case, the key is to consciouslydefinethese preferences andextractany irritators that ultimately justdistract fromthe essence of your colour style.
