The Smokey Soft Autumn

Here are the basics of the Smokey Soft Season

Temperature: Warm, predominantly
Value: Medium-to-Deep
Chroma: Muted
Sister Season: Toasted Soft Winter or Toasted Soft Summer, depending on value.

Best Colors: Rich, earthy shades of brown, terracotta, olive, teal, and tomato are key.

Worst Colors: Light, cool pastels like mauve and pale pink.

The Smokey Soft Autumn needs to wear rich, warm colors that are muted and deep in value. There will be a slight coolness to your coloring, such as neutral skin, grey eyes, or dark mousy hair.
This season can look like a Deep Autumn. But usually, their eyes or hair is not the deepest in value. A step up from the deepest Autumn is how to view this season.

However, depth is important: Wearing colors that are too pale will not be strong enough for your coloring and will wash you out. There will also be a need for richness. Bright cool colors will be out of place.

Below are some wardrobe looks I created for the Smokey Soft Autumn. 

FYI: This season is sometimes categorized as a 'Soft Autumn Deep' along with its 'twin', the Toasted Soft Autumn
