is something we all need to fall back on at some point. A pair of
pants, a straight skirt, some kind of jacket, even the little black dress - all wardrobe staples that
just kind of fit the bill for the odd occasion if not an everyday item.
And of course Autumn is one of the deepest color palettes so it's only natural that you should feel drawn to the deepest colors in general.
So how do we do it?
If you've had your Colors Analyzed or even worked out your own color direction, you've found a stunning color palette that will suit your natural coloring.

Once you understand how your colors work and what they do for you then
it's up to you to interpret the way you use them. As long as you understand that it will never be the most flattering worn next to your face wearing BLACK with Autumn colors is easy!
Autumn is one of the deeper color palettes and although your colors are soft they are also quite intense and heavily SATURATED. Therefore, they are strong enough to provide a strong contrast against black and they can look absolutely STUNNING!

or better still, brilliant color over black...
Wearing black with Autumn shades works even better if you can put the color next to your face. You can make this work with a collar over your jacket or sweater, a scarf plain or printed that includes your favorite colors or even jewelry that flatters your complexion. A necklace or earrings brings light to your face.
