The Smokey Soft Autumn

Main things to know about the Smokey Soft Autumn:

  • Temperature: Primarily Warm
  • Value: Medium Deep
  • Chroma: Soft

Sister Season: Toasted Soft Winter

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 and/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.
