ca. 1911 Magazine Article, “What Colour Can I Wear?”

By Jennie Chancey

1911 What Colour Can I Wear?Did you know that “blue is treacherous” and “brown is a friend–and a foe?” Or how about the fact that a grey-haired matron “ranks as a perfect blonde” if she has pink in her cheeks? This fascinating four-page article is chock-full of beautiful illustrations and fun information on what colors were considered correct for each complexion type. A customer sent me the original of this many years ago, but, unfortunately, the year is missing. I’m surmising 1911 because of the dresses and hairstyles (you’ll see the neo-empire waistlines that came back in 1911). As a bonus, there’s a little end piece with samples of lace insertion and tucks for blouses.
