Autumn colors in Summer? How do I do that?

Can you wear Autumn colors in Summer?

Yes, you certainly can!

I had a lady recently tell me that she couldn't find her Autumn colors in the warmer months and how disappointed she felt.

Well there's no reason to feel left out for any occasion or any season because you can always find colors around that will suit you. You just need to know how to recognize them.

Warm, Deep and Muted

The beautiful color characteristics of the Autumn season all lend themselves so perfectly to the the fabrics and cover-up clothes of the colder months. If you're used to sinking into the soft warm woollen fabrics, deep piles and rich coloring that surrounds you at that time of the year, it can be difficult to change your mindset and imagine these colors in lighter fabrics.

All you need to know is how to interpret them slightly differently for the warmer weather so you can continue to wear the colors that suit you best.  

When Color Analysis began...

4 color groups were devised which grouped similar color characteristics together. 

It is, however, generally accepted that SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN and WINTER were merely convenient names to describe these groups. In fact, the idea was brilliant because, not only do the colors distinctly reflect the changing seasons, but it strongly links the fact that Color is organic and Nature always gets it right. 

But it doesn't mean that you're stuck in your own SEASON!

You can always find Autumn colors in Summer too - you just need to know the shades to look for.
