This book and online course (they go hand in hand) made a big difference for me in many ways! I received them as a gift from one of the employees of this family-based company.

As far as the enjoyability of this book, it's clear and a fast read, but a little repetitive. (The four stars were based on life application, not writing.) I'm really into the topic, so I liked it. I am a type 1! One thing many people will probably be frustrated by is that the book helps you figure out what type you are, b

I bought this book to learn how to 'dress my truth'. Instead, it was an 'informercial' in paperback form (that I paid for!) without any information usable to me. It gave me my 'type', but in order to find out what that meant in terms of style, color, shape, etc - it is necessary to pay nearly $300 on the website. What good was it to me to find out the category Tuttle uses, without the information associated with it? I'm sure within the $299 session itself is the same information on type, else ho ...more

Carol Tuttle's adaptation of It's Just My Nature applied to the fashion world. But don't buy the book! Go to the Dressing Your Truth Website first. I recommend watching the free video course that's on the website to determine if this is something you'd be interested in. http://dressingyourtruth.com/

You have to buy her on-line course to get ALL the information for how to "dress your truth." (It's not in the book.) But, after doing the free on-line intro course, I only paid $99. For me, it was li

OK, as a disclaimer, I think the concepts and theories of this book are very good--my problem is, it never got past that to the practical applications. I had this book highly recommended by someone I trusted, so perhaps my problem in approaching this book was threefold: 1) high expectations; 2) the understanding that the book included the "meat"--the practical applications for each personality type (best colors, haircut ideas, etc.); 3) a personality that had not "suffered" for the past 20 years ...more

SHOCKING UPDATE: DYT book "word portraits" PLAGIARIZED Joan S Callaway book "WORD PORTRAITS" (more than half of words exact match!) Examples in my review there The Color Connection: From a Retailer's Perspective; "word portraits" in "Dressing Your Truth" book & "It's Just My Nature" are almost the same.)

My friend got me into Energy Profiling. She has lots of books by Carol Tuttle and also paid for a big package of Dvds or something from her website, so she knows all about this. But without her, I would have given this book less stars.

This book discusses four personality types and states that in fashion, women should dress according to their personality type, not just their body shape or colors that work for them. I agree with her and I see what she is saying after getting the information from m

Thanks to my sister I have been lead to this book, and this lifestyle of how to look at my beauty. For me it hasn't been a huge change, just back to how I used to dress and what I used to like. Somehow I got out of it over the years. The hard part will be getting rid of black. Not that I thought I looked great in black but it is such a staple, and finding replacements for black skirts and pants will take awhile.

I took the online course, and I find the book in many ways to be verbatim from the c

I like the idea of dressing according to my personality. It's not about being vain and shallow at all, but about feeling good about ourselves and being our true selves instead of trying to fit into the fashion magazines' supermodel role. It's also about showing that personality to others so they can take us more seriously. And about appreciating the various types of beauty that all women have and understanding everyone's unique (yet somewhat categorizable) personality. Or "energy," according to ...more

Okay - I had to give this 4 stars because this book has influenced me so much! BUT, I must say that like Alexandra Stoddard's books, I just glossed right over the hokey new agey stuff. The best thing about this book is the description of the 4 personality types (yes, just 4, so there's lots of room for variety within a group) and how to relate to that type. This book (and Ms. Tuttles' website) has helped me so much in understanding the other people I live with - especially the women! I would SO ...more

I gave this two stars because I thought it would tell each of the four types how to dress their truth.

It doesn't.

It's basically a book put out to promote the $300 online course. That's fine - I'm going to take the course. I just wish the book would've said upfront that it's not going to tell you how to Dress Your Truth. I wouldn't have gotten it if I'd known.

I know other people who also bought the book thinking it would explain how to dress your truth and they've been disappointed as well.

Not a book I would normally choose to read, but more a study in "personality types" rather than "dressing your truth." I love the author. I find her ideas fascinating and I think she has studied human nature a lot to put all of her ideas and conclusions together in her books. AND, I'm a four! (And learning to embrace my four-ness.)

As the other reviewers have mentioned, this book is the preview to her beauty profiling course, so its purpose is to help you determine your type and also to convince

This is a good introduction to the Dressing Your Truth program but it cannot stand alone. You need to go through the videos and the online information to have it all come together. It doesn't rely on testing or checklists but you have to feel your way through the process. I like that it isn't so black and white but that also makes it more difficult to decide on your beauty profile. I have done seasons, personality profiling and color draping but this pulls those elements together and then expand ...more

I thought this book would hark back to the Color my Season system of choosing clothing from the 80's, and I vividly remember my mom pronouncing me a "Winter". I thought it would be interesting to revisit that philosophy, as an adult. However, this was nothing like Color my Season. Tuttle has her own distinct perspective and advice regarding fashion choices, and includes makeup, jewelry and hairstyle too.

In short, it was interesting. Naturally, you always take a book like this with a grain of sal

I have a friend who purchased Tuttle's online Dressing Your Truth program as well as this book. She looks fabulous. However, after reading the book, it seems like a mix between the old "season" color thing and phrenology. As with pretty much all self help, you probably already know what is best for you, you just need someone to give you permission to do it. Carol Tuttle apparently can help you gain the confidence you need. However, I'd rather make my own fashion mistakes than hers. Also, the boo ...more

I gave this book four stars for the information which was presented...not necessarily for the way that the information was presented. Which isn't to say that the book isn't written well (because it is) but, rather that much of the book reads as an ad (which gets grating after a time).

The first quarter of the book I kept trying to figure out what the author was trying to sell me. The feeling that I was reading a sales pitch was very strong...which I didn't get because (to my mind) I was already r

This book is the finishing cap on the image and beauty story I've been searching for ever since I first learned about the color seasonal system 24 years ago. This is more than just about image and beauty. This directs us to become our own fashion experts since the fashion industry has failed us so thoroughly.

I am happy to feel good about how I want to dress based on my energy profile and am not limited by current fads and trends. Also, one great joy was to recognize my own special gifts and tal

I give this book four stars for her ideas and one star for the book itself. I like her system of dressing for your personality (or "energy type" as she calls it). I think we are often swayed by what's in fashion rather than what really represents us when we choose clothing. The book however, is annoying. There are typos and the writing is poor. It is SO repetitive and worst of all it feels like the whole book is a sales pitch for her online or in-person courses. She holds back the information yo ...more

If you have heard your friends buzzing about Dressing Your Truth or their "DYT type" and are at all interested in this then I highly recommend you do not buy this book. Go online or talk to your friends and wait for a $99 sale and purchase the whole online course. It is worth it and you will receive this book plus a gift card for their online store as part of the package.

Now, on to the book. I have been color typed before, a couple of times. It was always interesting to me that more than once t

I love Dressing Your Truth. I have been studying it for the last 8 months. I received this book as a companion to my online membership. I loved the concise and practical information. It helped me understand the types even more. However, if I'd never had any exposure to this system or Energy Profiling beforehand I would be frustrated by the lack of information. you were pointed to her website and her online membership on a regular basis. If you are sincerely interested in Energy profiling and Dre ...more

I personally like how insightful this book was. I really have started getting into the to Dressing Your Truth world and I am so excited how this has inspired me. I liked the fact that this book talks about the reasons why people act a certain way. I found out that I am a dominate Type 1 with a strong secondary Type 4. I understand me! I understand why I love to go out and jump from room to room talking to everybody or the fact that I do have so many ideas that I really have a hard time narrowing ...more

While I won't be reading this book again in it's entirety, I may reference it from time to time, or type up my own pamphlet version. It was interesting to see how right-on certain things in this book were. I do think it was helpful in seeing myself a little more clearly, and in understanding some of the differences I have in my relationships with people around me. According to this, I should be wearing 'summery' clothes that are bright and light-weight, which have always been the hardest for me ...more

An interesting idea - that the colors and clothes we wear are more comely when they match our personality. Sometimes I try to figure out which personality type a person is especially if how they look in the color they are wearing surprises me.

This book has helped me become more aware of me and remembering who I am. It has helped me to fell more confident and let me know that its ok to be me and take my time. The online course also helped me.

I read this as part of Carol Tuttle's Dressing Your Truth online course. I don't even remember how I came across it a few months ago, but I did. I started by watching a series of free videos on her website to see if this was something I was interested in. Those are at http://dressingyourtruth.com/ .

The book itself is not super well written, and it doesn't have the full info, so reading it by itself is bound to be frustrating. Hence the 3 stars. The idea, though, has been eye opening for me, and

I really like her definitions of beauty and seeing yourself and others in your "type" can really change the way you perceive how and why people do the things they do. I would have given this a higher rating, BUT it doesn't give you the "now that you know your type of beauty, this is what you do about it". It is a good starting point, but to really "dress your truth" you need to do more research and possibly pay for the course online. I do really like what she has to say about people and their pe ...more

“Call in the next 10 minutes and we’ll through in an extra book that says the same thing as all the other books without really saying anything”

This book just frustrated me! A few friends recommended it, and perhaps its my “type 4” attitude that didn’t allow me to embrace the novel, or perhaps it was the fact that this book read like an infomercial. It kept promising one thing and never quite delivered. When you read a book titled “Dressing your Truth” you would expect that the “dressing” part w

I now will read some of her other books - in large part because so much of what she says is in line with the brain/learning research I am familiar with that Bernice McCarthy has done over the last several decades. This would be an especially important book to read with young girls and teens - we're all beautiful just not all in the same way despite what the fashion industry would have us believe, just as we're all smart - but not in the same way. (it's not how smart you are, but how you're smart ...more

I am drawn to this type of 'self-discovery' and the idea that I could discover my 'beauty profile' and dress in a way that would highlight my personality and personal beauty had a lot of appeal. As the title says, this book is only about discovering your beauty profile. You have to buy the program to learn how to 'dress your truth.'
Tuttle says we all have all four types in us, but we each have a dominant type with secondary traits, sometimes strong secondary. She appears to have combine

I have not read her other books, so this was all new info for me. I learned of it from a message board on the internet so went to her website to check it out. I was intrigued, so I got my family to get me the book for Christmas.

This book is a rather necessary part of the whole program because it is where/how you will determine your type. You really need to know that before you can purchase the online course as there is an online course for each type. And I don't know about you, but I would rath

I thought this book was very interesting. On one hand it gave me insights to myself and my personality and why I like some things or dislike them or do things a certain way. It made me curious about the other information she offers, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay $300 to get that info. I do believe I am a Type 2 and am already doing some things differently with my hair, my clothes, and my activities. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book, just know that she doesn't give all the ...more
