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. 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 and analogous combinations would suit you the best. Make sure you use one neutral and one accent colour for these combinations, otherwise it would be too overwhelming. 

You can also pair dark and light colours in order to create contrast. Combine darker neutrals with lighter accents or lighter neutrals with darker accents. 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.
