COMPARISON

Soft Summer sits on the seasonal flow chart between True Summer and Soft Autumn. Soft Summer colours are the softest and most gentle in the Summer family. They are also darker and less cool than other Summer Seasons.

Neighbouring the Soft Autumn, according to flow theory, makes the Soft Summer palette warmer and darker than other Summers and adds a brownish element to the colours.

Soft Summer Comparison

Soft Summers and Soft Autumns have muted appearances and low contrast in their features. Their palette has similar, gentle, soft, and medium-value colours.

However, Soft Summers have cool (blue, gray) undertones, whereas Soft Autumns have warm (golden, honey) undertones.

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 dark or light neutral colours.

Soft Summer Colour Combination Examples

You have soft, muted, medium-value colours with coolish undertones in your palette. Most of the colours are greys & blue-based colours with a heavy focus on pinks and purples.

Since you have low to medium contrast in your features, we recommend you choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means combining the different shades of the same colour (such as light blue and dark blue) or combining neighbouring colours (lilac or lavender with blue or light green).

You can also combine the same value colours (such as light neutral and light accent) to your contrast level. Monochromatic combinations with pastel colours fit you the best.

Avoid clear and bright colours, high contrast, and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic). Otherwise, you look washed out behind your outfit. Black is not in your palette because it’s too dark for you. Try deep gray and cool brown shades instead of black. White is also too bright for you; you can choose other light neutrals in your colour palette for your combinations.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Since your natural look has low to medium contrast, your patterns should reflect the same. Your colour palette has medium-value colours meaning neither dark nor light. Choose the same colours in your palette for your patterns and prints.

Small to medium scale, loosely arranged, and light colour patterns such as flowers, watercolour designs, and delicate shapes would be excellent options for your natural look. Avoid too dense, big, or sharp shapes and geometric patterns.

Lipstick

Soft Summer Lipstick Colours

Your lipstick colours are blue-based pink tones. Avoid glossy and shimmery finishes; choose matte ones instead.

Eye shadows

Soft Summer Eye Shadow Colours

Your soft and muted colour complexion must be repeated with your makeup colours. Therefore, matte eye shadows would be better for you. Avoid bright and too-dark colours as well as shimmery finishes.

Eyeliner&Mascara

Soft Summer Eyeliner Colours

You have many different colour options for eyeliner. Make sure that they are matte and not overly bright. Dark grays and browns are good choices for mascara.

Nail Polish

Your make-up colours are taken from your fashion colour palette. Cosmetic companies have their colour names for their products. You may not be able to find the exact names in the market when shopping for make-up products, but this colour palette will guide you to find the best colours that would match your complexion; you can search for similar colours as possible.
