CLOTHING COMBINATIONS

Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or with your dark or light neutral colours.

Light Summer Colour Combination Examples

 LIGHT SUMMERs have light, soft and clear colours  with mostly cool undertones in their palette. Light summer colours are the lightest in summer family. Since they are neighboring the Light Spring according to flow theory, their colours are brighter and more saturated than the other Summer's. This also brings some warmness in their colouring. 

Since you have low contrast in your features, we recommend you to choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means, combining the different shades of the same colour or combining neighboring colours. You have many option to do these combinations in your colour palette. 

Avoid high contrast and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic) , it overwhelms your natural soft and youthful look. Basic colours such as blues and cool green tones will suit you the better than the accent colours.

Black is not in your palette, cause its too dark for you. Try gray tones instead of black. You have an option to choice off white instead of true white which would be too bright for your appearance.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Since your natural look has low contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Best to choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints. Prefer small to medium scale, loosely arranged and dense patterns and prints.
