Soft Autumn Seasonal Color Analysis Challenge: Day Twenty-Eight

 Today's Soft Autumn Outfit...

Cloud cardigan from J. Jill
Yellow tank top from Lands End
Grey pants from Lands End

I like the softness of this outfit but probably would not wear it again unless I found a blue and yellow scarf to go with it.

The cloud blue cardigan I had on is close to a blue from the soft summer color palette, which is the sister palette for soft autumns. Probably not my best color but the yellow helps to modify it.

I've been remiss in that I am not remembering to say that the soft seasons can wear each other's colors. Not every one of them, but because you are a blend of warm and cool, and one palette is more warm and the other more cool, you can choose from both. In fact, you will see that the palettes seem to harmonize with each other and some of the colors are quite similar.

For more information about your dominant season and the combination of colors that the soft seasons can wear, I highly recommend the Colour Me Beautiful book... ...

Soft Autumn Makeup...

I wasn't sure what to do for makeup with this outfit. I think I ended up wearing a little bit of coral blush, and tropical ice lipstick from Color Me Beautiful. I have some blue eye shadow but it always looks a little bright when I put it on so this time I didn't try it.
