The Early Winter color category (also called Dark or Deep Winter in other systems) encompasses the beginning of the winter season. The natural coloring of the individuals in this category as well as the colors in the palette are reflective of this time of year. Often mistaken for Autumns because of the hints of warmth found in their natural coloring.

Coloring Characteristics
