This eye appears to have a gathering of orange around the pupil, as we described for Autumn eyes. The take-home message: You can’t tell Season from eyes, pictures, stereotypes, or any other assumption. Sit yourself down in your colour analyst’s chair and find your answer the right way.
I’m a big believer in everyone in a Season wearing the entire palette, though how much they wear of each colour and where they use it can have as many interpretations as there are people in the Season.
To choose that best palette, the colour agreement between all the colours in the palette is evaluated, in addition to the best apparent match. After all, every colour in you will be wearing your clothing. We don’t see only your greens when you wear a green blouse. We see all your colours.
We could eat whatever we want, decorate our house however we choose, and invest our money however we want. We know that those will not be our best choices.
This True Winter can be, if not monochromatic, then not very colour-animated to look at. The skin can be beige gray with little natural blush. The eyes and hair colours would not look much different on a B&W TV.
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.
In darker colours, Dark Seasons are better defined. They come into focus. The dark clothing is full of colour and vitality, not flat or plain. Dark jewelry shows up against their body, while light jewelry can be harder to see.
The navy and dark brown in this palette are near black, fine colours but not a first choice in high humidity. I’m very partial to the very dark tobacco colour as a neutral, even in hot weather, maybe because it’s jungly.
This beige colour became the beginning of a long journey hunting for my true season. Here I discovered how much had happened to the world of colour analysis since the 90ies.
