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 Summer Colour Combination Examples

SOFT SUMMERs have soft, muted, medium value colours with coolish undertones in their 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 to choose monochromatic or analogous combinations, which means, combining the different shades of the same colour (such as light blue and dark blue) or combining neighboring colours (lilac or lavender with blue or light green).

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

Avoid clear and bright colours and high contrast and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic) , otherwise you look washed out behind your outfit. Black is not in your palette, cause its 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 or light. Best to 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, water colour designs, delicate shapes would be nice options for your natural look. Avoid too dense, big or sharp shapes and geometric patterns.
