COMPARISON

Soft Autumn sits between True Autumn and Soft Summer on the seasonal flow chart. Soft Autumn colours are the softest,  and most gentle in Autumn family. They are also lighter and less warm than other Autumn seasons.

Neighboring the Soft Summer according to flow theory makes the Soft Autumn palette cooler and lighter than other Autumns and adds delicacy to the colours.

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.

Soft Autumn Colour Combination Examples

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. 

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 (such as light green and dark green) or combining neighboring colours (such as blue and green)

Monochromatic combinations are your best options since this season does not tolerate any level of contrast. You can also pair neutral and accent colours in your palette as long as they have the same value (such as medium brown and medium pink).

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.

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. Small to medium scale and light colour patterns such as earthy elements, flowers, wood shapes, leaves would be nice options for your natural look. Avoid too dense, big or sharp shapes and geometric patterns.
