Neutrals Week: Deep Autumn Neutrals

Deep Autumn Neutrals

Dark brown
Deep olive

"Your strong features allow you to wear two dark colors together, or a light and dark combination; you should avoid pale colors on their own. ...Use ivory and pewter as the basis for your wardrobe, mixing with all the brighter shades from your palette." –Color Me Slimmer

If You're a Deep Autumn, You Can Wear Black

But deep autumn is a blended season, so a totally cool look using black will not be nearly as attractive as one that involves pairing black with warm colors from the deep autumn color palette. Keep in mind something Christine Scaman said on her blog:

"Black can feel a bit leaden on those who do not contain it by Nature’s hand. Keep Dark Autumn darks penetrable and interesting. Choose the almost-black purples, blues, browns, and greens. In daylight, you should see colour. Once a woman hears that she ‘can wear black’, she wears it with a vengeance. On Dark Autumn, it’s not great or very good or good. It’s acceptable in small blocks with a lot of heat added in. Solid black is forbidding."

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
