SOFT AUTUMNs are influenced by the SUMMERs softness, but they have warmer undertones unlike summer. The overall appearance is soft and muted. Your natural colours blend together rather than having a contrast. Your eyes are warm and light with grayish tones. Your skin has beige and gold undertones.

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.
SOFT AUTUMNs have muted and non-saturated colours in their palette, they are not too warm or cold, instead soft and gentle, not too dark or light either. Your colours have yellow undertones, even your blue shades in your palette have warmer undertones.
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 combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic) , otherwise you might disappear behind your outfit.
Black and white are not in your palette, since they have cool undertones and create high contrast. Also black is too dark for you. You have different shades of brown, cream and beige instead.
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.
