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.
Here is how you really get gray right in your wardrobe. Reading about it only gets you so far. The shopping breakthrough is taking the fabric to the store. Compare the colours under the same lighting. Then, it becomes easy and fast.
The unique radiance of True Winter speaks to me as space and solitude on the most majestic, mysterious scale. It is the silence of the ice cave, the rising of a blue white moon over a frozen lake, the jewel that resembles a planet, the yellow flower that could be the sun.
The Neutral Collections (NCs) are collections of 12 pieces of fabric cut in 9×4 inch rectangles in colours that function as wardrobe neutrals. Every colour is unique to that Season.
From where I stand today, 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, on whom wearing white every day is a series of unfortunate events.
True Winter and True Summer lipsticks exist on a continuum. There is movement between them. The True Springs and Autumns are totally different in cosmetics, except perhaps the odd brown eyeliner.
I confess to surrendering shamelessly to Light Spring wedding dress overload. For once, this is the easiest Season to find clothing for.
