It's Neutrals Week! Bright Autumn

One way to do more with less as you continue to build your fall capsule wardrobe or prepare for the transition to a winter capsule, is to emphasize neutrals and add in a few new pieces to go with them.

Neutrals could even become the bulk of your wardrobe as long as the ones you choose match your season!

So this week, we will take a look at finding neutrals for the autumn seasons and today, I will start with my own, bright autumn. When you are a bright season, the best colors to wear under your face are bright ones, and the level of contrast usually needs to be high, but that doesn't mean you can't pair the brights with neutrals.

In fact, if you are a bright or a vivid autumn, your color palette will have suggested neutrals in it. Here, in this picture, are great colors that could be used as neutrals and paired with brighter colors.





Do you wear neutrals?

I am linking up today with MomTrends for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, and to Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday.

When you then wear the colors you already are, you look like magic because your person and your attire is sending the same wavelength of energy to the viewer." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

    1. Hi Kim! Thanks!! Bright autumns are deep, too. Just with a smidge or two or brightness thrown in for good measure. Enjoy your smoky deep colors. :)
