Fall has finally arrived! If you are an Autumn color type this is your time to shine. But what if you are a Spring or Summer? Not to worry. All seasonal color types can utilize the colors in their palettes to get a warm, cozy Autumn look too.
As I went over in a previous post you can achieve any look you want with your palette. Just choose a color scheme and then find your version of those colors within your own seasonal color palette. It’s that simple! But to help give you some ideas specifically for fall see below…
- Use softer and plusher textured fabric
- Wear jewelry that resembles leaves, branches or fruits of the season
- Wear more neutral makeup (nude tones) and switch to the deeper lip and nail polish colors that align with your seasonal color palette
Fall Color Combinations for Springs
As an overall warm-toned season, you have several lovely colors within your palette to choose from that will give you an Autumn-like look without having to tone down or alter your natural brightness.
Choose colors like your warm grays, warm golden browns, buff, golden yellows, and oranges, honeydew and grass green, warm bright reds, teal blue, and green turquoise, tulip purple. Now is a great time to wear your metallics as well.
