Every one of these colours is incredibly beautiful on somebody. That person’s colouring doesn’t belong in the Summer groups.
For every colouring, there are plenty of colours to not wear. I’m including only those that I see often. Sometimes, if I know the person, I ask, why that?
-It was something different.
Then I think, different how? Different why? There was nothing with you before.
Was there? Is there something you’re not telling me?
Thoughts that serve no purpose but are there anyway.
Readers brought up some great questions. I’ll add the answers here:
- There are hundreds of colours that are terrible choices for every colouring. I chose the ones that might either be terrible or just mildly second best, the more important criteria being that I see it all the time.
- The black in the True Summer row is actually ink navy. Summers love blue, own a lot of it, and can be too permissive with it. Every Summer has a cut off, even with blue.
- The soft blue for Light Summer (middle colour) was intended to be a Soft Summer blue. In the same love of all things blue as #2 above, Light Summers see blue in a fairly light version and they click the Buy button. Instead of being a version of silvery blue grey like you’d find in a Pinterest search for ‘blue topaz’, the colour is softer and greener, feels heavier and thicker, a colour you might see on pottery, clothing, quilts, and paints depicted in Colonial American times. It is not particularly grey but reads that way on the Light Summer wearing it while they look tired with a heavy body. The colour may show brighter than intended on your particular screen or monitor.
