Soft Colors - Cool or Warm?

Step 2 for SOFT seasons is to determine whether you favor WARM or COOL soft colors.

Note: Except for the “Warm” and “Cool” seasons, all of remaining seasons will have both warm and cool colors in their palette though they will favor one over the other.

If you’re unsure which colors you favor, test draping is the answer. In front of a large mirror with good light, try on different colored tops or scarves near your face. See which colors may make you look brighter and more refreshed or if any make you look sallow and pale.

Test these specific colors to differentiate between the warm and cool colors and see which is more flattering for you.
