The Dusty Soft Spring is a Spring that, unlike most Springs, is slightly muted with a dusting of grey.  This season flows into Summer and due to the blend of both warm and cool seasons, there will be a slight neutrality (temperature-wise) to your look, particularly when compared to the warm spring. 

Dusty Soft Springs often have blue eyes and the cooler colors of Spring will help enliven you such as lavender, robin's egg blue, etc. However, the majority of your colors should be warm, particularly your neutrals like shades of brown and tan. Very dark or very bright cool colors will overpower you.
