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.

True Autumn Colour Combination Examples

TRUE AUTUMN has typical rich and golden based autumn colours,  it is the warmest of all Autumn colour palettes. Golden greens, oranges, warm reds and yellows are creating colourful appearance. 

Since there is low to medium contrast between your features, its better to choose monochromatic and analogous combination types, which means same colour with different shades (such as light green and dark green) or colours with similar undertones (such as orange and pink)  that are close to each other on the colour wheel.

True black and white are not in your colour palette because they have cool undertones, also they are either too light or dark for you. But you have different options such as brown and beige tones in your colour palette.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Since your natural look has low to medium 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 small or dense and sharp geometric patters.
