Color. Style. Empowerment.“Every person has the right to feel empowered and look fantastic.”


Emmy® Award-winning Stylist and Best-Selling Author David Zyla empowers you to discover your authentic style and show the world who you really are.

David Zyla has long advocated that there exists no one color or item of clothing that flatters everyone and makes them feel their absolute, confident best. He believes that every human being possesses an individual palette of flattering colors and a style that is uniquely their own. By honoring and wearing these colors, found in our eyes, hair and skin, we not only illuminate ourselves, but we build the confidence needed to attract love, enhance our power, restore our energy, make a lasting impression and show the world who we really are. Much more than just fashion, David’s platform is about embracing the most authentic, very best versions of ourselves, using color as the foundation.

David Zyla’s unique platform on style makes him a frequently quoted authority on fashion and color in the media. He has been featured in a variety of broadcast media including The View, The Nate Berkus Show, Martha Stewart Living Radio, The Jane Pauley Show, Playboy Radio and CNN Style. He has been profiled in People and The New Yorker, and his work has been featured in publications including Life & Style, USA Today, Traditional Home, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Wear Daily, Brides Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Reuters, The Chicago Tribune and The Los Angeles Times.

He is the author of Color Your Style (Plume) and How to Win at Shopping (Workman).

    Please do a book on the archtypes-i am a renaissance summer and would love to see example palettes and colors. i can see greta and cate as archtypes -i fit in with them. a workbook with color chips would help or sell some chips – i would buy them. i think you are on to something fascinating.

    I have been playing with the colors and telling everyone I know about this. I would love to know more about the archetypes. I think I may be a vivid winter.

    Hi! Great book! I have been playing with color theory for a long time now and your book makes the most sense to me. How much easier would it be to build a closet around 8 colors! I agree that a follow-up book of archtypes and color palettes would be most helpful!

    Hi David,

    I just read your book. I missed your seminar at the Learning Annex in June. Will you be doing another seminar in NYC soon? Do you do consultations in NY? I really need help with color and style.

    Thank you.

    This book has quickly revolutionized my life-thank you, David! Instead of bashing around buying random pieces, I was able to ‘shop my closet’, put outfits together based on your system, and suddenly I’m getting compliments every day. I’m throwing out the pieces that don’t work, and acquiring missing ‘base’ essentials in a focused way that is relaxed and easy on my budget.

    I’m buying copies of your book for my 2 daughters; wish I’d had it when they lived at home, but this is helpful for any age and stage. They are young women scrambling around trying to acquire a wardrobe that compliments their looks: one with a new job, one at college. This will be invaluable.

    Again, thank you for sharing your system. It is simple, and IT WORKS!

    I absolutely love your book! I am so excited to get home & elavuate my current wardrobe & purge unflattering items. I have studied color & style theory as hobbies & your system makes so much sense to me! (Mostly because none of the professionals can figure out my “season”!) I have been confirmed a summer at age 14, a spring at 25, an autumn at 32. I have read countless books, visited websites, watched style shows & finally self-evaluated & decided to pull from spring & autumn my own palette. (now, I am 50!) So, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!! I am sooooo excited as your system is my key to color success! I would love a book with color swatches & another book featuring the “archetypes! Get Busy as you are onto something!!!! Sincerely, Vickie
