The Science of Color: Finding your perfect color palette

Seasonal Color Palette

We've seen so much going around the internet about finding the perfect color palette for yourself. Colors are not just hues; they are expressions of personality and identity. But it can be daunting to try to figure out which colors look best with your skin tone so we're breaking it down for you. Let's take a deep dive into the fascinating realm of the four color seasons – a fun and insightful way to unravel your perfect palette.

Understanding the Seasons:

Just like nature transitions through Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, fashion embraces four distinct color seasons. Each season brings its own lovely palette, perfectly suited to complement various skin tones, creating a harmonious and stylish look. Let's break it down:

  1. Spring:

    • Colors: Pastels and vibrant hues
    • Vibe: Fresh, playful, and lively
    • Skin Tones: Warm undertones
  2. Summer:

    • Colors: Cool, muted tones
    • Vibe: Serene, calm, and effortlessly chic
    • Skin Tones: Cool undertones
  3. Autumn:

    • Colors: Warm, earthy tones
    • Vibe: Rich, cozy, and inviting
    • Skin Tones: Warm undertones
  4. Winter:

    • Colors: Bold, jewel-inspired hues
    • Vibe: Striking, sophisticated, and dramatic
    • Skin Tones: Cool undertones

Finding Your Season:

  1. Check Your Veins:

    • Look at the veins on your wrist. If they appear blue, you likely have cool undertones. If they seem more greenish, you likely have warm undertones.
  2. Gold or Silver?

    • Consider whether gold or silver jewelry complements your skin tone better. Warm undertones often suit gold, while cool undertones pair well with silver.
  3. White vs. Cream:

    • Determine whether you look better in pure white or creamy off-white. Cool undertones tend to favor pure white, while warm undertones rock the creamy shades.
  4. Eye and Hair Color:

    • Take note of your eye and hair color. Certain seasons harmonize beautifully with specific shades found in natural features.

Armed with insights about the four color seasons and your undertones, head to your closet and start experimenting. Try on different hues within your potential season and observe which colors enhance your features and make you feel the best. There are also filters on TikTok and Instagram that will help you try out different colors and find your best ones. 

Discovering your color season is like finding a style superpower – it transforms the way you approach fashion. In knowing the colors that make you look and feel your best, you can explore the endless possibilities that color can bring to your wardrobe.
