Fall may be my favorite season for various reasons (sweaters, layering, pumpkin lattes, hayrides, campfires, football etc), but funny enough Autumn colors are not the best colors for me. For those that have followed along for a while now, you may recall my discussing Color Analysis and the breakdown of the four seasons. Everyone falls into a particular ‘season’ which in turns depicts the best colors for you based on criteria such as your hair color, skin tone and eye color. There’s a science behind it that’s best analyzed in person, but I did my best a few years ago to break things down for you in an effort to make it as easy as possibly to figure out your season on your own. You can find my four part series here: ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.

I personally fall into the Summer category and look best in colors with cool undertones. That rules out those warm oranges, reds and browns. Now, I’m not saying that I never wear these colors (that’s a given based on my outfit in this post!) but what I find most important is that I wear one of ‘my colors’ at very least around my face. Pairing this outfit with a blue/green sweater instead of a burnt orange (which would look amazing on a freckled, red head) is a much better option for me. Knowing the colors that fall into my color palette has always helped me better navigate through my wardrobe choices and it’s something I highly recommend looking into if you haven’t in the past!
