The second edition of the book, Return to Your Natural Colours, will be at Amazon around late November and I will announce it here when it happens. Today’s post is a preview. The Season Snapshots are new.
Instead of aiming for textbook colours, look for items that can find reasons to be in the Season because they have so much in common, and will make sense in the same closet.
It’s hard to make sense of this garment with the aquas and greens of the palette, which begin looking frivolous or childish when in truth, they are stunning and vibrant on a Light Summer. Greens are excellent for getting a sense of what could be rational together.
Of the colours that do nothing for Summer coloured people, these are the ones that keep showing up, plus three great ones.
What about all the people who see colour and time of year differently or live in a land without snow? In today’s post, Jennifer is our guest blogger from New Zealand. From her recent PCA, she found a new awareness of her own colours repeated in Nature.
These are the colours that I expect to be beautiful on most everyone of these colouring types, or Seasons.
Knowing your white might be the biggest payoff to having your colouring analyzed if you happen to be an Autumn or Spring, on whom wearing white is a series of unfortunate events.
Soft Summer colouring includes Autumn’s earth colour associations. Colours are more solid. Texture is a nice way to communicate this man’s strength and add variety to a monochromatic look.
Being a Light Season means lighter makeup than other Seasons. Light is not near-white in this context. Too pale is draining and chalky.
The jeans are light and faded enough to appear gray (neutral). Denim has many variations, from lighter and more turquoise to darker and a bit violet, like the hat.
