Colour is inherently energetic, memorable, easier to select, and occupies the viewer’s attention. Neutral colours are like the support structures, like bark and ground and air.
In Evangeline’s perception, the silver hair seems very cool. Compared to the previous dye, which her self-image learned over years if not decades, it may be. To me, it looks like expensive gray suede.
Our Season doesn’t change with age, but we do. So does the world around us. Today, outfits for several Soft Autumn women, to see the Season through different eyes and points in our life journey.
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.
Transparency works. The drop earrings in the top right are comfortable, but the T-shirt below them seems a little heavy. Could be that the yellow content is gold, not yellow. Could be that the textile goes darker in the shadows instead of lighter in the highlights. Those might harmonize it with Dark Autumn. Does it matter? Not to me.
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.

Colour-analyzed people have a personalized formula for customizing trends to their advantage, which is the palette of their own colours. Like the fashion advisor that we really want, it always works in our best interest.
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.
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.
