Neutrals for a Warm Autumn Capsule Wardrobe

"In the warmer months, you will be able to have cream and oatmeal as the core neutrals in your wardrobe, not forgetting that light navy may be worn all year round. You can also wear your neutrals together for an interesting look." –Color Me Slimmer

In any capsule wardrobe, carefully chosen core neutrals form the foundation blocks for your new wardrobe. When you have them in place, you can add and update each season by choosing warm fashion or accent colors that help you create entirely new looks.

Best Warm Autumn Neutrals


Warm Autumn Neutrals for Spring

There is No Warm Autumn Black

If you need a color similar to black for work, try charcoal or a light navy. But keep in mind that those are the neutral colors recommended if you must, not the ones that are necessarily the best support for your vibrant, warm coloring. So if you are going to wear them, combine them with warm colors and make sure to wear the warm colors near your face.

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

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
