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 Summer Colour Combination Examples

TRUE SUMMERs have soft, muted, medium value colours with cool blue undertones in their palette. 

Since you have 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 darker blue) or combining neighboring colours (such as pink and lavender) 

Avoid clear and bright colours and high contrast and bold combinations (complementary, triadic or tetradic) , otherwise you look washed out behind your outfit.

Since you have cool and soft appearance, neutral colours will harmonize your natural look perfectly. Pair light neutral with darker accents or dark neutrals with lighter accents in order to achieve medium level of contrast. Black is not in your palette, cause its too dark for you. Try deep gray shades instead of black. White is also too bright for you, you can choose other light neutrals or pastel pinks in your colour palette for your combinations.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Since your natural look has 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.

Medium scale, loosely arranged and light colour patterns such as flowers, water colour designs and other loosely arranged designs. Avoid too dense, sharp and geometric patterns.
