Your best colors can make your life much easier ‒you can buy more colors not just black or brown, you can spend less time with shopping and you can create great and matching outfits.
Colors only can’t create a great style but it’s essential to know which colors complement your overall look so the seasonal color analysis system could be a great friend for you as well.
What do the seasonal color palettes mean?
As nature creates beautiful and harmonic colors, people also have a type of coloring that is most similar to one of these seasonal palettes. People’s palettes appear on their faces as a combination of hair, eyes and skin colors.
How to find your best colors?
First, you have to find your dominant season.
Close your eyes for some seconds. When you open your eyes, what characteristic you notice first in the mirror?
Do you have light blonde hair, delicate eyes, and peachy skin? – Spring
Do you have dark hair, dark or clear eyes, and ivory skin? – Winter
Do you have warm brown hair, warm eyes, and golden skin tone? – Autumn
Do you have ‘mousy’ hair, grayish colored eyes and rosy skin? – Summer
Springs and Autumns are so-called warm seasons while Winters and Summers are cool so the best colors can be also warm or cool.
Warm colors have a yellow or gold undertone, for example, brown, olive green, khaki, mustard.
Cool colors have a blue or gray undertone for example purple, gray-blue or pink.
When you wear your perfect colors, you look handsome and vital. Your skin and hair are full of life and your eyes shine. Everybody notice you not your clothes.
However, when you wear a wrong color, your hair and skin look grayish or yellowish and your eyes dull. It seems that your body and head live a separate life.
How can you color analyze yourself?
I suggest to ask your girlfriend/wife or one of your friend to help you testing your colors.
1. Try to collect the following colors are made from textiles – any kind of, so it could be a shirt, a scarf or a towel, in the last resort a piece of paper:
2. Find a nice day lighted place and put a mirror in front of you. And the fun part begins 🙂
3. Test the collected colors next your face – which are best for you? If you have cool characteristics, warm colors will sallow your face but if your dominant colors are warm, cool tones will make you grayish.
4. Now, you know your dominant seasonal palette but here is a chart for a better decision:
After you find out your dominant season you can easily create a great and colorful wardrobe.
