Light Summers are a blend of Summer and Spring (or Summer 'flowing' into Spring.) Some of the more neutral colors of spring will be in this palette as will soft greys, soft blues, dusty rose and other light elegant colors.

Monochromatic colors will look fantastic-for example: a light navy jacket, a soft blue blouse and a sky blue scarf.

Avoid high contrasts in colors. Because of your delicate coloring, its easy to get overpowered.

Remember, too, that there may be some noticeable warmth in your coloring due to the Spring influence. This season often gets mistaken for Springs.
