The Clear Winter

Here are the basics of the Clear Winter season

Temperature: Cool, predominantly
Value: Deep
Chroma: Clear

Sister Season: Clear Spring

Best Colors: Black, Pure White, Icy Blue, Icy Pink, Hot Turquoise, True Red, Royal Purple.

Avoid: Dusty, muted colors, and pastels (opt for Icy versions of colors instead).


The Clear Winter looks best in clear, contrasting colors such as mixing bright White with dark Navy.

Black will always look good on you, but to maximize your coloring, pair it with a bright contrasting color.
Your coloring can be striking, and your palette contains all of the beautiful jewel tones like Ruby Red, Emerald Green, and Sapphire Blue. 

As a Clear Winter, you are a blend of both Winter and Spring (Winter “flowing into” Spring), so you will find some of the most intense Spring colors in this palette like bright coral and icy yellow (however, they are best used sparingly as an accent color).
