Warm Colors - Clear or Soft?

All of the seasons will have both warm and cool colors in their palette though they will favor one over the other. The two exceptions are the COOL and WARM seasons, which will have either ALL warm or ALL cool colors in their palette.

Step 2 for those who's dominant characteristic is WARM is to decide whether clear warm colors favor you best or whether warm muted (or soft) colors do.

If you’re unsure which colors you favor, test draping is the answer. In front of a large mirror with good light, try on different colored tops or scarves or even a sheet of colored paper. See which colors may make you look brighter and more refreshed or if any make you look sallow and pale.
Test these specific colors to differentiate between the clear and soft (muted) colors and see which is more flattering for you.
