Contrasting Chestnut Spring, Part Two

In Monday's post, I told you all about the transition from warm autumn to deep spring. Since then, I looked up contrasting chestnut spring in the seasonal color forum I frequent.

Contrasting: "Your skin, hair, and eyes combine lights with darks. Your best color combinations are light and dark colors worn together with a bright accent. Your best single colors are dark or bright."

Chestnut Spring: "Mid-range to deepest brown hair colors, sometimes with auburn highlights, set off rich brown or gray-brown eyes. Skin tones are glowing apricots, creamy peaches or beiges, or soft tans."

Have been waiting to see what, essentially, will be a deep spring color palette, and from the description, I assumed it would, at least, include the following colors...

dark brown
rich brown
gray brown
chestnut brown
soft tan

Notice how many of those colors are in the following Polyvore guess I made last year when I thought through what deep spring might look like?...

That collection of colors right there almost makes me want to call it a Salsa Spring! :)

But here's the actual palette and another example of Polyvore outfits. Can't wait to get it!...

  3. Hi Jeanine!
    I love these colors and the fruit combo! It is beautiful. The info is grest as well! As you can see, I need some fashion guidance!

    It is good to know that I can take some brown and match it up with a bright spring/summer color. I will have to do that.

    1. Hi Tonya! Thanks!! Oh yeah, brown can go with almost anything. Which is good, because I love brown. :)
