Cool winter color palette

A Cool Winter? Of course it is

What is a Cool Winter? WINTER is always COOL, always DEEP and always BRIGHT (Clear).

'Different' methods of Color Analysis are always popping up but I never pay them a great deal of attention because I have to say 'each to his own'. The Tonal and Seasonal methods work brilliant well together and are perfectly complementary.

Cool Winter - you may be diluting your color palette #cool winter #color analysis https://www.style-yourself-confident.com/cool-winter.html

OK so you're a Cool Winter!

A COOL WINTER is limited to the coolest colors in the WINTER color palette.

With a restricted range of colors the shades become so specific that it's extremely difficult to recognize them and almost impossible to shop because your choice is so limited.

If you've been determined a COOL WINTER then you are only part of a Season with a diluted color palette. 

You could be missing out on a much wider range of colors! 

Cool Winter - you may be diluting your color palette #cool winter #color analysis https://www.style-yourself-confident.com/cool-winter.html

But actually you're more likely to be either
COOL or WINTER!

If you're COOL

Been determined Cool Winter? Then you don't fit easily into the Seasons. It may have been difficult to decide between Summer and Winter but one is Light and Soft and the other is Deep and Bright! 

What they both have in common is a COOL undertone. This could mean that COOL is the most important aspect of your coloring, i.e. COOL is your primary characteristic, the one we see first.

It's often said that COOL is a mix of Summer and Winter and, to some degree, this is true and you'll see some colors from both in the color palette. But only the true COOL shades with a medium contrast - leaving out the sultry tones of Summer and the bold highly contrasting shades of Winter.       

So if COOL is the main factor of your coloring, then this palette could be for you. Rather than a limited array of colors you could be wearing and enjoying the whole spectrum of the COOL color family.

Or if you're true WINTER

WINTER is a glorious mix of three color characteristics, it's always COOL, always DEEP and always CLEAR/BRIGHT.  

This color mix will complement your strong and dramatic coloring which creates a high contrast between your features.

Light or soft/muted shades are not for you and, although the colors need to be COOL with a blue undertone, the Deeply saturated and Bright/Clear elements of WINTER are also needed to bring this beautiful color palette to life.

Pure drama: deep tones and icy lights, highs and lows, sharp yet strong. 

Cool Winter - you may be diluting your color palette #cool winter #color analysis https://www.style-yourself-confident.com/cool-winter.html

Don't dilute a color palette - just enjoy!

Whatever you are don't dilute your palette!

Whatever color palette you're given it should include shades of every color - reds, blues, greens, yellows, purples, greys, beige, browns. Each one has elements of the color characteristics that complement your natural coloring and you need them all to look your best!

You'll have your favorites, some will look better than others. Season to season you'll be influenced by fashion and your tastes will develop and change.  

You'll choose your light or slightly stronger shades according to mood and occasion; professional, conservative, holiday time etc. but as long as you're within your color direction you really can't go wrong.

Don't dilute it, just enjoy!

Don't think that any SEASONAL swatch is just for the specific season, it will work for you year-round! 

Whether Seasonal or Tonal you need choice

Some people are still nervous about Color Analysis because they think their color choice is going to be severely limited. When the Seasons are broken up that's exactly what happens!

When I was first came across Color Analysis I was given a small swatch and told what I 'could' and 'couldn't' wear! Probably like you, I don't like being 'told' what to do. Only you know what makes you feel good and what you need is choice.

You need the widest possible choice of colors that make you look good and if some colors are new it's great to experiment. Choice is usually influenced by mood and occasion anyway.

If you've been correctly analyzed you will see familiar and favorite shades, you will feel comfortable! Color is a fabulous medium, it's here to be enjoyed and it's FUN!

Winter: the different types

This is the last of four blog posts, exploring the different 'types' of each season. When discussing each season I will try to use the most commonly understood terms of each type, but please do contact us if you feel we've and missed out a term that would help colour analysis clients understand their season.

And we've reached the final week! We've spent the past three weeks exploring the different types of Springs, Summers and Autumns, and this week we finish up with Winter.

These guides are intended to help you understand how each 'type' of season can vary within one palette, and help you to understand your own season as far as possible. Remember, it's important to note that your seasonal type is a guide, not a rule book. If you fall at one end of, say, the Summer palette, it doesn't mean you can't ever wear colours from other areas of the palette you may have been given, just that this particular area is the very best part of the best palette for your personal skin tone and contrast level.

This week, we'll be looking at Winter colours.

Jewel/True Winter

This is the palette most of us visualise when we think of the Winter colours. Boldest scarlet, bright white and true black. These colours all play at the extremes of light, dark and bright.

True Winters are high contrast, bold and bright, and often have high contrast in their colouring, perhaps in the form of very dark hair with fair skin or bright blue/green eyes.

Your best colours as a True Winter are holly berry red, emerald green, cobalt blue and stark black and white, all worn in high contrast.

Your best Kettlewell colours: hot pink, fuchsia, cherry, raspberry, purple, lobelia, sapphire, bright navy, emerald, white, silver, charcoal, black.

raw-jewel_true.jpg

Bright/Clear/Sprinter Winter

A Bright Winter is, dare I say it, even brighter than a True Winter. The colours have a little of Spring's lightness added to them (although they still sit on the cool side of that warm/cool dividing line), making them almost fluoro versions of True Winter's palette.

Bright Winters can often look like Springs with clear blue eyes and blonde hair, or like Summers, with their brightness only appearing when they wear their bold Bright Winter colours.

Your best Bright Winter colours are shocking pink, Chinese blue, icy greys and acid yellow.

Your best Kettlewell colours: Hot pink, true red, violet, lobelia, sapphire, royal blue, cobalt blue, chinese blue, azure, emerald, acid yellow, iced aqua, white, pink ice, light grey marl, silver.

raw-bright_clear_sprinter.jpg

Cool/Sultry Winter

A Cool Winter sits at the more exotic end of the Winter palette, losing some of the brightness of the True and Bright Winters and gaining some extra darkness.

Cool Winters often have slightly deeper colouring than their brighter counterparts, and are often (unsurprisingly, given the name!) extremely cool toned and turn positively yellow in anything with even a hint of warmth in it.

Your best colours are charcoal grey, deepest indigo and navy and burgundy, and very pale grey is often a better pale neutral than stark white.

Your best Kettlewell colours: mulberry, deep claret, dark red, raspberry, cassis, navy, pine, soft grey, light grey marl, silver, charcoal, black.

raw-cool_sultry.jpg

Burnished/Deep/Dark Winter

A Deep Winter can be a tricky one to analyse. Often carrying hints of a warm look, perhaps a bit of red in the hair or a glimpse of amber in the eye colour, they actually sit closer to the Autumn end of the Winter palette, while still needing those cooler Winter colours rather than Autumn's golden tones.

Your best colours as a Burnished Winter are some of the least obviously Winter colours of the palette, such as stone, mole grey and pine green.

Your best Kettlewell colours: passion flower, deep claret, true red, cassis, aubergine, purple, navy, mallard, forest green marl, pebble grey, light grey marl, mid grey, mole.

Your Go-To Winter Color Palette

winter-scene

I’m guessing because you’re looking for a winter color palette that you know what seasonal color analysis but let me give you a two sentence synopsis.

Seasonal color analysis uses the 4 seasons and the colors that are associated with them to give a specific “season” to an individual, based on what their eye/skin/hair color is. Within the four seasons, there are 3 types for each, making 12 possible combinations (ex. Deep Winter, Warm Spring), but for this post we are going to focus on the four types.

If you’re interested in reading more about the 12 types, check out my Super Simple Seasonal Color Analysis Guide!

I think we all know and understand what the season of winter is, but what does winter mean when you are talking about seasonal color analysis? Well, as far as colors go, it means these are colors you typically associate with winter, like deep or icy blues, black, white, etc.

You know how you also see a lot of contrast in nature? There is a lot of contrast for winter types in their eyes/skin/hair. Contrast meaning light vs. dark, usually. So, like white snow with the stark birds in the sky or bare trees on horizon.

I mentioned above that there are three types within each season, and for Winter those are: Deep Winter, Clear Winter, and Cool Winter. But let’s just start with winter. Identifying with one of the four seasons is a great starting place if you find the 12 types either too difficult to understand or maybe restrictive in what you can wear.

Characteristics

Skin: Olive or Cool Blue Undertones

Eyes: Dark Brown, Black, Bright Green, Bright Blue, Gray

Hair: Medium to Dark Brown, Black, Ashy Blonde, Black with Blue Undertones

There are three things that can put you into the winter category.

  1. You have an overall cool tone to your skin, hair, and eyes, even if they are similarly colored. For example, bright blond hair, gray eyes, and cool toned skin.

  2. You have a clear contrast between your skin and hair/eye color. This means very light skin with very dark hair OR eyes. Your hair or eyes should be much darker.

  3. Your hair and eyes are both very dark and probably cool toned. Your skin color will vary, but your hair and eyes should be dark.

Winter Color Palette

winter-color-palette

You’ll notice that the colors in this palette are mostly “cool” toned or have a neutral tone. Certain colors you can look at and tell easily they are “warm”, like yellow or orange. But within broad color names like blue or green, you can have warm blues and greens. Some greens lean more yellow, and those are warm. Some greens are very cool, like a forest or hunter green. A faded black would be warm, while a pure black could be cool/neutral.

Best Colors

Cool tone colors are going to work best for you if you’re a winter. The winter color palette will contain some pure colors (by pure I mean colors like you think of in a regular old crayon box, no fancy colors), and some colors that are deepened or cool. The best colors are in the dark greens, blues, reds, and purples. Pinks are possible, but I would stick to an almost pastel pink or a toned down hot pink, like in the color palette.

Best Neutrals

White, black, and navy, my friend. They’re crisp and perfect for winter. Stay away from the browns. If grays are calling your name, go for a medium to charcoal gray. Grays work best if you’re a Cool Winter type with less contrast, but it’s okay to wear for most winters. You’ll learn that some colors are going to look just fine on you, even if they aren’t in your palette. But the colors in your palette will make you glow.

Avoid

Oranges, yellows, and browns will most definitely not be your friend. You could maybeee get away with a camel brown that doesn’t come off too yellow-y, but I would try to keep these colors out of your closet.

Tips for a Winter Palette

  • Do you have very cool skin (like translucent or very visible blue veins)? Avoid any warm colors. Really learn what it means for a color to be cool or warm. A blue is not just a blue once you learn color tones.

  • Do you have darker skin that is cool toned? Avoid using the light colors in your palette (like pink or sage green) in large clothing pieces like a skirt or dress. Use these colors for accessories mostly.

  • Follow your contrast. Light skin/Dark hair? Try wearing light and dark colors. Lower contrast? Try wearing colors that are closer to each other with less contrast.

Super Simple Seasonal Color Analysis

seasonal-color-analysis

“What the heck is a seasonal color analysis and why should I care?” - what you’re probably thinking. Before I started to care about my style, I just wore and bought whatever struck my fancy. I ended up with a rainbow of a closet, but I only reached for things in certain colors.

I like pink and bright yellow, just not on me. I like red, but only particularly shades. It isn’t just preference, because my house is full of bright colors. It’s what looks good on and complements my skintone and hair.

Seasonal Color Analysis takes the coloring and undertones of three things into account:

  • Your Eyes

  • Your Hair

  • Your Skintone

Then, depending on how light or dark each of those things are, it puts you into a “season”: Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter. The colors in your season will complement your features best, and you probably already reach for some of these colors!

Seasons are used because we already associate certain colors with each season, like white snow in the winter, rich red leaves in the fall, kelly green grass in the summer, or pastel pink flowers in the spring. Each season is then broken down into a subtype like cool or soft or deep, which just tells you how vivid or muted the colors are in this season you should wear. You are probably safe wearing any color in your season, but if you want the most flattering option, try to stick to your subtype.

Of course, you can always experiment outside of your season, as well! For example, my season does not have black or gray in, but I find if I wear blacks that don’t have blue undertones and warmer grays, that it is flattering. Finding your season is just a starting point to help you figure out the color palette you may want for your wardrobe.

If you take nothing else from this, you will want to determine if your skin, hair, and eyes have a neutral, warm, or cool undertone. Then, choose colors for your clothing that have the same undertone.

Not sure or want some more guidance figuring out your season? I’ve created a guide that will help you digitally “drape” yourself and figure your season in under 30 minutes.

Winter Season Color Palette

Cool Winter

If you are a Cool Winter, you most likely have the following characteristics:

  • Hair: Ashy blonde, Ashy light or dark brown, or Black with blue undertones

  • Skin: Olive or Cool Blue undertones

  • Eyes: Light brown, blue, or gray

Cool seasons (Summer or Winter) do not depend on contrast or lack of contrast between skin/hair/and eye color, rather it is the overall undertone of these three things. Cool seasons will have a cool or bluish undertone to their hair, skin, and eyes. Pastel or light colored shades are not flattering on cool season types, rather a medium tone of the colors in your season are most appropriate to contrast and complement your undertones. Don’t be afraid to experiment with slightly darker shades than what is in your palette, but avoid warm toned shades.

Celebrities that are a Cool Winter are: Liv Tyler, Lauren Graham, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Davis

cool-winter-color palette

Clear Winter

If you are a Clear Winter, you most likely have the following characteristics:

  • Hair: Medium to dark brown or black

  • Skin: Olive or Cool Blue Undertones

  • Eyes: Bright green or blue

Clear seasons (Spring or Winter) have a higher contrast between their skintone and hair and eye colors. For example, fair skin with dark brown hair and bright blue eyes. However, blondes can also be a “Clear” season type, if their hair is a particularly bright blond that is not platinum or ashy. The color palettes for clear season types are the clearest and least muted one way or the other. Meaning, that the colors are what we could consider a true red or true blue, like the crayon box you had as a child with a small variation of shades and only the brightest shades of each color.

Celebrities that are a Clear Winter are: Courteney Cox, Zooey Deschanel, Alexis Bledel, Angelina Jolie

clear-winter-color-palette

Deep Winter

If you are a Deep Winter, you most likely have the following characteristics:

  • Hair: Medium to dark brown or black

  • Skin: Olive or Cool Blue Undertones

The color palettes for light season types are muted but not dark. Light colors differ from muted colors in that they are diluted with white and appear more pastel than muted colors that appear to be darker than their original color. The light colors complement your light overall coloring, instead of overwhelming it with harsh or dark colors.

Celebrities that are a Light Spring are: Taylor Swift, Amanda Seyfried, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johannson

Both warm seasons share neutral brown bases, but the spring palette has the warmest tones of bright spring colors.

The most flattering colors in your color palette or soft, but not washed out.

Celebrities that are a Soft Summer are: Ellen Pompeo, Leona Lewis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katie Holmes

Cool Summer

If you are a Cool Summer, you most likely have the following characteristics:

  • Hair: Medium to dark Ashy Brown

  • Skin: Skin has a cool undertone and ranges from medium beige to dark brown

Cool seasons will have a cool or bluish undertone to their hair, skin, and eyes. Pastel or light colored shades are not flattering on cool season types, rather a medium tone of the colors in your season are most appropriate to contrast and complement your undertones.

Color Theory For Beginners - *Life Changing* Seasonal Color Analysis

True Winter:
A Comprehensive Guide

True Winter is the original Winter season of the four seasons colour analysis and is the ‘standard’ Winter palette. The other two Winter palettes have been modified to accommodate the respective Autumn and Spring influence.

True Winter colouring combines coolness with brightness. This season falls at the coolest, iciest end of Winter. Therefore, the colours are cool with a clear blue undertone. They are quite harsh and seem to be covered with frost.

The True Winter palette contains a broad range of colours, from icy pinks and purples to frosty blues. And even though the contrast between the colours is high, the dark tones are balanced with brighter and much lighter accent colours.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of colour, True Winter has the following settings:

True Winter Colour Dimensions

Hue

True to this season’s primary aspect, the colours are very cool, meaning they contain blue undertones but no yellow undertones. So even if you choose yellow (which is the warmest colour of all), you will find only cool shades. In addition, there are very few yellow-based colours on the palette and more shades of blue and icy pinks, which are naturally cool-based.

Value

The palette ranges from the lightest value (true white) to the darkest (true black). Overall, the palette is on the darker side because bright blue – the undertone of this palette – is medium-dark.

Chroma

The colours are fairly high in chroma, meaning they are saturated, bright and vibrant – in keeping with this season’s secondary colour aspect.

Sister Palettes

True Winter sits between Dark Winter and Bright Winter on the seasonal flow chart. It is the heart of the Winter palette, and the colours are brighter, cooler and slightly lighter than those of Dark Winter.

With its opposite season True Summer, the colours share the same cool value but are darker and brighter. And unlike True Summer, the colours are cleaner and mixed with blue and black. The contrast between them is much higher.

Compared to the third Winter season, Bright Winter, the palette is cooler, slightly darker and not quite as bright. This is because Bright Winter turns the saturation up to the maximum.

As sister palettes, Dark Winter and Bright Winter both share True Winter’s aspects of cool and bright, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the True Winter spectrum, you can borrow some colours from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the True Winter colour palette.

If you lean more towards Dark Winter, opt for the lighter colours on the Dark Winter palette – such as Marine Green, Splish Splash and Ibis Rose. Whereas if you lean more towards Bright Winter, select the less intense colours on the Bright Winter palette – such as Dazzling Blue, Blue Iris and Everglade.
