Summer Color Palettes – Light Summer, True Summer, Soft Summer

Summer Color Palettes

Summer is full of bright, vibrant colors. And while it’s pretty easy to combine a few of them into an outfit, sometimes you need a little help deciding exactly which shades and hues pair best together. Light summer is the most common of the summer color palettes. This color palette suits many different hair colors and skin undertones. Mastering a summer color palette can help you build a wardrobe that fits your personality and makes you feel confident.

I. Light Summer Colour Palette

Light Summer is reminiscent of mild summer mornings full of coolness and gentleness with a hint of freshness. The sun’s rays only touch the dew drops on the awakened foliage and flowers. The sky is of the most muted tones with floating, fluffy clouds. These colors are gentle and light, yet refreshing – like an early morning breeze at the beach.

The Palette

Light Summer combines lightness with coolness. Consequently, the colors are overall light in value to complement the appearance of a Light Summer. A few colors are medium in value, and those are just supporting colors for the light tints.

The palette contains medium-saturated, coolish colors, such as light pinks and delicate blue greens. There are no harsh contrasts between the colors, only nuances.

And while this season’s color palette has the typical coolness characteristic, with some warmth of its neighboring season, Spring. Moreover, Spring adds brightness and saturation to the otherwise muted Summer palette. This is the brightest and least faded season of the Summer family.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, Light Summer has the following settings:

Hue

The colors lean towards the cool end of the scale but are not very cool. That means they contain more blue than yellow undertones. So even if you choose yellow (which is the warmest color of all), you will find only cooler yellows that contain a tint of blue.

Value

In line with Light Summer’s primary aspect, the colors are light. Although you may find some medium shades, these are just supporting colors for the lighter tints. There are no dark colors on the palette. However, the palette does not include the very lightest colors. Those are Winter’s icy lights, which are closer to white than Light summer’s colors.

Chroma

The colors are medium in chroma, meaning they are neither very muted nor highly vibrant. However, the colors are brighter and more saturated than those of the other two Summer seasons because of Spring’s influence on them. But they don’t have the same intensity as Light Spring colors.

Sister Palettes

Light Summer sits between Light Spring and True Summer on the seasonal flow chart. It falls at the Spring end of the Summer palette, with colors lighter, brighter, and warmer than those of True Summer. They are surprisingly un-summery in their saturation level – almost bright enough to rival Light and True Spring’s palettes.

The colors are cooler, gentler, and slightly darker than Light Spring. Spring’s effect on Light Summer is added warmth and brightness. Spring also lightens the colors compared to the other two Summer palettes.
The colors are neutral-cool like those of the third Summer season, Soft Summer, but they are brighter and lighter.

Light Spring and True summer share Light Summer’s aspects of light and cool, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the Light Summer spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the Light Summer color palette.

If you lean more towards Light Spring, opt for the cooler shades on the Light Spring palette – such as Blue Topaz, Lavender, or Provence. If you lean more towards True Summer, choose the lighter colors on the True Summer palette – such as Chardonnay, Pink-a-boo, or Dutch Canal.

II. True Summer Colour Palette

true summer color analysis

True Summer is the color season reminiscent of summer days after rain when the last grey clouds disperse, and the haze refracts all the colors of nature into a kaleidoscope of contrasts. These colors are cool, calming, and refreshing, like the feeling of cool water on the skin. They are the colors of water – the blues and greens of rivers, lakes, and deep oceans.

The Palette

True Summer is the original Summer season of the four seasons color analysis and is the ‘standard’ Summer palette. The other two Summer palettes have been modified to accommodate Spring and Autumn’s respective influence.

True Summer coloring combines coolness with softness. This season falls at the coolest end of Summer. Consequently, the colors are cool with a clear blue undertone. There is not a hint of warmth in this palette.
The palette has the gentleness and delicacy typical of the Summer family. The colors are mid-range. And although there is a range of different hues, blues, turquoise, and greys, which are naturally cool, feature heavily on the palette. Cool browns and greyish blues work well as neutrals, accented by brighter hues, like pinks, purples, and greens.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, True Summer has the following settings:

Hue

In line with True Summer’s primary color aspect, the colors sit on the coolest end of the hue scale. That means they contain blue undertones but no yellow ones. There are very few yellow shades on the palette, and even those have a heavy tint of blue to cool them. Instead, you will find many naturally cool blues, turquoise, and greys.

Value

The color palette ranges from light grey to dark brown and is quite broad. Overall, though, more colors are medium or lighter than truly dark. This is because True Summer cannot handle too much contrast.

Chroma

The colors are medium in chroma and lean more towards the muted end of the scale. They are dusky and greyish rather than saturated and bright.

True Summer Sister Palettes

True summer sister palettes

True Summer sits between Light Summer and Soft Summer on the seasonal flow chart. It is the ‘standard’ Summer palette.

With its opposite season True Winter, the color palette shares the same cool temperature. But True Summer colors are lighter and gentler.

The colors are cooler, more muted, and slightly darker than Light summer.

The colors are somewhat brighter, cooler, and slightly lighter than in Soft summer. True Summer colors are not as desaturated as Soft Summer colors. And while True Summer neutrals are getting greyer, the complementary and accent colors on the palette retain some brightness.

Light Summer and Soft summer share True Summer’s characteristics of cool and muted, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the True Summer spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the True Summer color palette.

If you lean more towards Light Summer, opt for the darker and less bright colors on the Light Summer palette – such as Open Air, Aster Purple, and Sea Green. If you lean more towards Soft Summer, choose the brighter colors on the Soft Summer palette – such as Marlin, Storm Blue and Wild Rose.

III. Soft Summer Colour Palette

Soft Summer is the color season reminiscent of misty days when the heat carries the fog through the air after a cool summer rain. And the arrival of Autumn is not far away. These colors are gentle and mysterious. They contain so many cold and warm tones that their collision gives rise to a surprisingly harmonious image. And like a chameleon, this color season can show one side or another.

The Palette

True to Soft Summer’s primary color aspect, the colors are muted and gentle to match this season’s natural coloring’s low to medium contrast level.

The color palette includes desaturated, low-contrast, and coolish colors. Most of the colors are greys and blue-based colors with a heavy focus on pinks, purples, blues, and greens. The colors are not clear but complex and elusive, almost as if they consisted of many different colors.

Soft Summer sits on the border to Autumn. Summer is muted, cool, and light. Autumn is also muted. So adding Autumn to Summer makes the Soft Summer palette even more faded. But Autumn also brings warmth, adding a brownish element to the colors. Autumn also adds depth, and thus, Soft Summer colors are the darkest of the Summer family.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, Soft Summer has the following settings:

Hue

Thanks to Soft Summer’s secondary aspect, the colors lean towards the cool end of the scale but are not highly cool. That means they contain more blue than yellow undertones. As a result, you will find fewer shades of yellow (which is the warmest color of all), only cooler shades of yellow that have a tint of blue. Instead, there are more blues, pinks, and greys, naturally blue-based and thus cool.

Value

The color palette is medium in value, meaning neither light nor dark colors dominate it. And while there are lighter and darker colors, most of the colors fall somewhere in the middle of the value scale.

Chroma

In line with this season’s primary color aspect, Soft Summer has the least tolerance for brightness. Consequently, the colors have low chroma – meaning very desaturated, muted, or simply greyed-out.

Sister Palettes

Soft Summer sits between True Summer and Soft Autumn on the seasonal flow chart. It falls at the Autumn end of the Summer palette. And the colors are more muted, warmer, and ever so slightly darker than those of True Summer.

Compared to Soft Autumn, the colors are cooler and more greyish, but otherwise similar – both seasons are medium in value and muted.

Compared to the third Summer season, Light Summer, the colors share the same neutral cool temperature but are more muted and darker.

True Summer and Soft Autumn both share Soft Summer’s aspects of cool and muted, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the Soft Summer spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the Soft Summer color palette.

If you lean more towards True Summer, opt for the more muted colors on the True Summer palette – such as Moonlite Mauve, Baby Lavender, or Lichen Blue. If you lean more towards Soft Autumn, choose the cooler colors on the Soft Autumn palette – such as English Manor, Ocean wave, or Dusk Blue.

Winter Color Palettes – Dark Winter, True Winter, Bright Winter

Winter Color Palettes

No matter what your favorite season is, it’s hard to deny that winter has some gorgeous hues. There are three types of winter palettes: true winter, dark winter, and bright winter. Dark winter palettes feature a dark background color with dark reds and blues. Bright winter palettes feature a light background color, with bright red and blue accents. True winter palettes are similar to bright winter, but you’ll get a deep purple or indigo as the accent color instead of red. Check out these and other winter color palettes to find ideas for your perfect look!

Dark Winter Colour Palette

dark winter color palette

Dark Winter is the color season reminiscent of deep winter nights, when the stars contrast with the black-and-blue sky, creating an atmosphere of mystery and magic. These colors are dark and cool, just like when the moon tints the night sky bright and illuminates the dark, misty forests beneath. Dark Winter colors are the colors of the night.

‍The Color Palette

Dark Winter = depth + coolness.

The dark Winter season’s color palette is dark and intense with hints of warmth. Dark Winter sits on the Autumn end of the Winter family. However, it needs the frosty influence of Winter rather than Autumn’s rich, earthy tones.

Dark Winter’s primary colors are dark, neutral-cool, and somewhat bright to match this season’s natural coloring.

The color palette includes highly saturated, highly contrasted, and relatively bright colors. Though quite broad, the palette heavily features pinks, reds, purples, and blues. The high contrast between the colors replicates the natural contrast level of a Dark Winter.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, Dark Winter has the following settings:

Hue

The colors lean towards the cool end of the scale but are not extremely cool. This means they contain more blue than yellow. So even if you choose yellow (which is the warmest color of all), you will find only cooler shades with a tint of blue. You will also not find many shades of yellow-based colors but more shades of blue and grey, which are naturally cool.

Value

The overall palette is dark in line with this season’s primary color aspect. And while many of the colors are very light (white and the icy pastels), there are many more dark ones. This mixture in value is required to achieve the high contrast a Dark Winter needs.

Chroma

Typical for Winter colors, the palette is slightly higher in chroma, meaning the colors are somewhat saturated and bright. However, they are dark rather than very bright.

Sister Palettes

Dark Winter sits between Dark Autumn and True Winter on the seasonal flow chart. It falls at the Autumn end of the Winter palette. Consequently, the colors are softer, darker, and warmer than True Winter’s.
Compared to Dark Autumn, the colors are similarly dark but cooler and brighter. And the light colors of Dark Winter are lighter than those of Dark Autumn. Autumn’s effect on Dark Winter is additional warmth and some softness.

Compared to the third Winter season Bright Winter, the colors share the same neutral-cool hue but are darker and softer.

Dark Autumn and True Winter share Dark Winter’s aspects of dark and cool, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the Dark Winter spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the Dark Winter color palette.

If you lean more towards Dark Autumn, opt for the cooler colors on the Dark Autumn palette – such as Plum Caspia, Blue Depths, and Corsair. Whereas if you lean more towards True Winter, select the darker colors on the True Winter palette – such as Acai, Aventurine, and Bellweather Blue.

True Winter Colour Palette

True Winter is the color season reminiscent of Winter in its prime. White, snowy landscapes contrast with bare trees and the darkest of nights. These colors play at the extremes of light, dark, and bright. True Winter colors are also present in the moonless night sky and at the Earth’s poles.

‍The Color Palette

true winter color palette

True Winter is the original Winter season of the four seasons color analysis and is the ‘standard’ Winter palette. The other two Winter palettes have been modified to accommodate the respective Autumn and Spring influence.

True Winter coloring combines coolness with brightness. This season falls at the coolest, iciest end of Winter. Therefore, the colors are cool with a clear blue undertone. They are pretty harsh covered with frost.

The True Winter palette contains a broad range of colors, from icy pinks and purples to frosty blues. And even though the contrast between the colors is high, the dark tones are balanced with brighter and much lighter accent colors.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, True Winter has the following settings.

Hue

True to this season’s primary aspect, the colors are very cool, meaning they contain blue undertones but no yellow undertones. So even if you choose yellow (the warmest color), you will find only cool shades. In addition, there are very few yellow-based colors on the palette and more shades of blue and icy pinks, which are naturally cool-based.

Value

The palette ranges from the lightest value (true white) to the darkest (true black). Overall, the palette is on the darker side because bright blue – the undertone of this palette – is medium-dark.

Chroma

The colors are relatively high in chroma, meaning they are saturated, bright, and vibrant, keeping with this season’s secondary color aspect.

Sister Palettes

True Winter sits between Dark Winter and Bright Winter on the seasonal flow chart. It is the heart of the Winter palette, and the colors are brighter, cooler, and slightly lighter than those of Dark Winter.

With its opposite season True Summer, the colors share the same cool value but are darker and brighter. And unlike True Summer, the colors are cleaner and mixed with blue and black. The contrast between them is much higher.

Bright Winter’s palette is cooler, slightly darker, and not quite as bright compared to the third winter season as the Bright Winter turns the saturation up to the maximum.

Dark Winter and Bright Winter both share True Winter’s aspects of cool and bright, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the True Winter spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the True Winter color palette.

If you lean more towards Dark Winter, opt for the lighter colors on the Dark Winter palette – such as Marine Green, Splish Splash, and Ibis Rose. Whereas if you lean more towards Bright Winter, select the less intense colors on the Bright Winter palette – such as Dazzling Blue, Blue Iris, and Everglade.

Bright Winter Colour Palette

Bright Winter is the color season reminiscent of when the winter sun illuminates the snow-white expanses. The play of sunlight on cold winter landscapes creates a bright and sparkling image. These are the vibrant and almost unnatural colors of extreme weather situations like the Northern lights in the night sky. They are the colors of the cosmos and the galaxy.

bright-winter-color-dimentions


The Color Palette

Bright Winter coloring combines brightness with coolness. And if anything, Bright Winter colors are extreme – extremely intense, light, dark, and vibrant.

Bright Winter sits on the cusp between Winter and Spring. Like those of all Winter seasons, its colors are mainly cool, dark, and bright. But Spring increases the brightness of the already bright Winter palette, which creates the most intense, vibrant shades of all the seasons.

The palette contains acid greens, neon yellows, and bright fuchsias that would overpower any other season. Spring also warms up the colors slightly so that they are not as frosty as True Winter colors.

Colour Dimensions

On the three dimensions of color, Bright Winter has the following settings.

Hue

The colors lean towards the cool end of the scale but are not highly cool. As a result, you will find fewer shades of yellow (which is the warmest color of all) on the palette. And you will only see cooler shades of yellow, which have a tint of blue. Instead, there are more blues, pinks, and purples naturally blue-based and therefore cool.

Value

While the colors range from very light (bright white) to very dark (true black), the majority is medium in value, leaning slightly to the dark end because of the greater concentration of blue undertones.

Chroma

In line with Bright Winter’s primary aspect, the colors are very high in chroma, which is highly saturated, bright, and vibrant. These are the most intense colors of all the seasons.

Sister Palettes

bright-winter-color-analysis

Bright Winter sits between True Winter and Bright Spring on the seasonal flow chart. It falls at the Spring end of the Winter palette. Therefore, the colors are brighter, lighter, and warmer than True Winter’s.

The colors are similarly bright but cooler and slightly darker than Bright Spring. Spring’s effect on Bright Winter adds some warmth to the palette, brightens the colors, and lightens them somewhat.

Compared to the third Winter season Dark Winter, the colors share the same neutral-cool temperature but are lighter and brighter.

True Winter and Bright Spring both share Bright Winter’s aspects of cool and bright, respectively. Depending on where you fall on the Bright Winter spectrum, you can borrow some colors from your sister palettes since they are close enough to the Bright Winter color palette.

If you lean more towards True Winter, opt for the brighter colors on the True Winter palette – such as Limelight, Rose Red, and Palace Blue. Whereas if you lean more towards Bright Spring, select the cooler colors on the Bright Spring palette – such as Royal Purple, French Blue, and Green Jacket.

Plus Size Men’s Fashion – Styling Tips And Reference Pictures

Plus Size Men’s Fashion

Plus size men’s fashion is something that has been gaining attention in the past few years. Plus size men are struggling to find clothes that fit them properly and flatter their body type. The reason for this struggle is that clothing stores are catering towards the male population who wear small to medium sizes.

This section will be discussing two brands that design plus-size clothing for men: Alpha Male Clothing and Big Boy Clothing.

Alpha Male Clothing, based in London, was founded by designer Pia Yoon. They specialize in stylish clothing for big-sized guys with a focus on quality, comfort, and fit. Big Boy Clothing is located in Florida and was founded by two brothers who wanted to offer stylish clothes for bigger guys with a focus on fit and comfort without looking like “big boy”.

How to dress big and tall men

Dressing big and tall men can be a challenge. However, there are many ways to dress them and make them look good.

The best way to dress a big and tall man is to create a fabric and color palette that will suit their body type. The clothing should be tailored, light, and breezy while still giving enough coverage. The outfits should not be too tight or too short while wearing them while picking clothes of the right size for their height is important.

How to dress big and tall men

It can also help to get the right proportions of the clothing such as the length of the shirt, length of trousers etcetera in order to make sure that they fit properly on their body type.

There are some other guidelines that you need to keep in mind when you’re dressing for a big and tall person.

  • The waistbands need to be thinner because wider bands add weight and volume to the hips.
  • You need to use a belt with a longer length for better visual proportion.
  • You can make it work with a tighter fit, but there has to be no bunching or gapping in the back.
  • Avoid overdoing it with patterns or prints.
  • For shoes, flat shoes are best because they don’t add height and provide more comfort.

Casual dressers who are big or tall can face the problem of not being able to find clothing that fits them.

Big men often have to buy custom-made clothing, which is difficult because they are hard to find. And if you do find them, the prices are usually high.

Luckily, big and tall men can now take advantage of retail stores that specifically cater to their needs. They are designed with larger dressing rooms, clothes racks for longer stockings, and extra-long mirrors.

How to dress big and short men

First of all, you need to know about your body type. You can either be proportionately long or short. If you are proportionately long, then you should wear clothes that are long and leaner. For example, wearing a shirt with fitted jeans will elongate your body type. If you are proportionately short, then it is best to wear clothes that are wide and have length, for example, a shirt with slacks or trousers.

How to dress big and short men

If you have bigger arms it is usually best to lengthen the sleeves of the shirt so they don’t bunch up at the wrists or armpits. Wearing fitted clothes will also help draw attention away from the chest area if needed too.

Here we cover three simple tips that you can use when shopping for clothes for big and short men:

  • Make sure they’re proportionate.
  • Don’t forget about the length
  • Go with the classics

A common problem for shorter men is finding clothes that have a good fit. It’s important to find high-quality clothes that are designed to fit a big and short frame. In addition, it’s always good to look for clothes that have a looser fit, as tight clothes can make you appear even shorter than you already are.

Men who are taller than average may not realize that they can’t wear the same style of shirt or pants as someone with a shorter height because the size is different. Bigger people may also be tempted to show off their size by adding layers of clothing, but this leads to an “overly bulky”.
