The Bridge Between Two Seasons...

A Tale of Two Seasons

I concluded last week’s “which season am I?” extravaganza by landing on warm autumn, or at least, indicating that I was leaning that way. But what is really more accurate is that I am warm autumn leaning deep or warm autumn bridging deep autumn

Although we color analysts like to nail down the exact season, sometimes it is clear that someone’s coloring is actually spread across more than one. When that is the case, you need to decide two things. Where does most of their color palette lie? Which means you want to know that if you indicate a particular season, that that is the one with the most harmonizing colors for them.

Although I have a generous helping of deep in my coloring, what is more important is that I am warm. For a recent client, who is a soft summer bridging soft autumn, what’s matters most is that she is soft.

For my client, that means that her absolute best look will probably include a blend of mostly cool and a little bit warm with an overall softness that ties them together, because that describes her coloring. 

For me, it would be outfits that are both warm and deep, but not too deep. And that have medium-strong contrast.

Can I just say that I am IN LOVE with these outfits (especially the colors)? I think I would wear almost everything in there!

These are my beloved warm and deep autumn colors and this is my much-loved natural style.

What about you?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
