Inspired by David Zyla's book The Color of Style. 

Your Dramatic color is the darkest color in the veins in your wrist. It is a color that relays power and energy. 

For an important business meeting, Zyla recommends wearing the brightest version and pairing it with your First Base color (the color of the dark ring around your eyes) which is your most formal neutral.

The colors I used are not exclusive examples of all possible Dramatic Colors for those with Light Summer coloring.
