The Dusty Soft Autumn

Main things to know about the Dusty Soft Autumn:

  • Temperature: Warm, primarily
  • Value: Medium to Medium Light
  • Chroma: Soft

Sister Season: Sunlit Soft Summer 

Sample best colors: Peach, Tan, walnut brown, light moss, oatmeal, cool sage, rich grey green, lemon chiffon and ivory. 

Worst Colors: Bright or dark cool colors like cobalt blue, hot magenta, black, burgundy. 

The Dusty Soft Autumn looks best in light to medium-light earth tones. 

This season may often mistaken for a Summer since there is often some coolness in their hair and skin, but most often in their eyes. Many have blue eyes, but all cool colors will not enhance the warmth that is primarily in your coloring. 

Another reason this season gets misdiagnosed, is that most of the rich earthy warm colors of the Warm Autumn is too warm for the lightened and softened coloring of the Dusty Soft Autumn. 

Monochromatic colors will look great on you. There will be a range of lighter to deeper soft colors you can wear, but keep most of the colors on the lighter side. Wearing colors that are too bright or too dark and heavy, particularly cool colors, will overwhelm you. 

Warm neutrals will look great on you.
