How to wear Summer colors in Winter

Do you wonder how you're going to wear your Summer colors in Winter? 

Don't worry because your beautiful color palette is not just for the floaty or lightweight garments of high Summer! This is a wide range of subtle almost sensual shades and all of the colors will happily lend themselves to the heavier items you need for the colder months.   

Although we refer to the 4 best known color families as Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, it doesn't mean that each set of colors is limited to that particular season of the year.

Each of the Seasonal color palettes will function equally as well throughout the year and, indeed, in any climate.

Your color palette

If you have been determined or picture yourself as Summer, take some time to explore the wide range of colors in the Summer color swatch.

It includes colors from right across the spectrum but each one has color characteristics to enhance your own natural coloring i.e. COOL, LIGHT and SOFT. 

You will find light, medium and deeper shades - OK the deep ones may not be as dark or intense as those in other color families - but they are relatively strong against your delicate coloring.

Your colors are...

  • Your colors all have a COOL undertone but they are duskiest of the cool tones - added grey takes away any harshness.
  • Your colors are SOFT and subtle - blue reds, grape and damson, beige and silver grey, blues and blue toned sea greens. 
  • You can see that the fabric you choose helps here too. For the colder months choose the softest and warmest fabrics such as wool, fine jersey knit, soft faux suede, velvet...
  • Your colors are LIGHT. That doesn't mean that they're all pastel and wishy washy just that the colors have a lightness of pigment. With the Summer colors you're able to have a depth of color but without the weight of heavy saturation which would overpower your delicate coloring.
