Can you wear Autumn colors in Summer? Yes you certainly can!
In fact, the idea was
brilliant because, not only do the colors distinctly reflect the
changing seasons, but it strongly enforces the fact that Color is a completely natural medium.
Your Seasonal color palette, however, will work for you throughout the entire year! You just need to know the shades that are best for YOU and what to look for.
Of course the stores are bound a little by what's currently in fashion and some year's you'll have more choice than others. But by and large, if you look around you'll always manage to find the glorious colors of Autumn somewhere.
If you're used to sinking into soft warm woollen fabrics, deep piles and rich coloring of the Autumn colors, it might initially be difficult to visualize the same shades in the sunshine.
But these same rich colors will easily translate Autumn colors into Summer easy and comfortable styles.
Just imagine the subtle and
sensuous tones of a Mediterranean vineyard or the dazzling spectacle of a Caribbean sunset - they're all AUTUMN colors!
Just choose colors or prints and if they look good with your color swatch, they'll look great on you!
Every color palette needs it's neutrals, so for the warmer months look to your lighter shades; earthy tones of cream, beige and perhaps just a little brown.
Add a couple of scarves to your neutrals that introduce the Autumn colors.
The light neutrals will provide the backbone to any of the glorious colors you've selected from your color swatch.
I've only shown this using your lightest neutrals but you'll find that a soft denim blue, stronger marine blue or even a warm grey will complement these gorgeous shades in exactly the same way - or you can mix and match.
Animal prints in shades of cream, beige, brown and gold will add style and sophistication to your look.
You can create a look that's subtle and sensuous or brilliantly bright - either way can easily produce a stunning array of Autumn colors in Summer.
