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 Winter Colour Combination Examples

 True Winter colours are bright, and have blue undertones. Your colour palette stands between Bright and Dark Winter palettes, meaning your colours are darker than Bright Winters but lighter than Dark Winters. They are bright but not as much as Bright Winter colours.

You also have the high contrast in your features, therefore you can wear your colours in high-contrast combinations. Complementary, triadic and tetradic colour combinations would suit you the best. They provide high contrast, because they are at the opposite site or far apart on the colour wheel. They appear brighter and more prominent and create bold and vibrant look.

For triadic and tetratic combinations, its better to use one dominant colour and use the others as accent colours in order to balance your look. You can also pair dark and light colours in order to create contrast. Black and white combination is your best look.

PATTERNS&PRINTS

Patters should contain only the true winter colours and have high contrast between them, so they could harmonize with your natural look. Medium to large scale patterns and prints would pop up the bright colours . Avoid faded colours, blended or minimal patterns; use bold, geometric and abstract designs instead. Black and white combinations would look more flattering on you. If you like flower patters, choose the ones with bright colours.
