Here are the basics of the Smokey Soft Winter season

Worst Colors: Avoid warm, pale colors like light brown, soft peach, sage green
The Toasted Soft Winter is a Winter that, unlike other Winters, has a muted quality to it.
The palette of colors is a mix of 'traditional' winter colors like black, true red, and emerald, but they are worn in a way that creates lower contrast than most Winters.
In addition to the traditional winter colors, this season has deep, rich colors like black cherry and toned raspberry. They have little to no warmth in their coloring.
The Toasted Soft Winter's palette is a mix of some lighter soft colors, not usually associated with Winters. But paired with the much deeper traditional colors of the palette, a slightly toned-down effect is created. Wearing colors that are too pale will not be strong enought for this season's coloring.
FYI: If you haven't noticed yet, many images I use on this site are marked "ColorBreeze Art". This is part of my new artwork and visuals I have created with the help of AI, among other digital photo software. I will be slowly adding more images over time. Here are some for this season. Please share on Pinterest if you like them!
FYI: Sometimes you will find the Smokey Soft Winter categorized as simply a Soft Winter along with its 'twin', the Toasted Soft Winter
