Each seasonal type has it’s own unique beauty and it’s own beautiful color palette, and for Summer types, the best Summer colors are Cool, Light, and Muted.
What are Summer colors? A summer season color palette is full of soft colors like pastels, some great neutral colors like soft white, charcoal grey, navy, and taupe, and some rich colors as well like cranberry, evergreen, and plum.
We noticed pretty quickly that there are 3 different coloring patterns that we see in Summer types, and that they each need a unique summer seasonal color palette. Are these palettes entirely different? No. There are definitely colors that overlap, but there are some important distinctions on their unique palettes depending on the summer’s skin tone, hair, and eye color. Summer palettes vary, depending on their dominant quality – light, cool, or soft.
Here’s how we break down the types:
Sunlit Summer – The lightest of the Summer types
Moonlit Summer – The coolest of the Summer types
Calm Summer – The softest of the Summer types
Here is an example of a our Sunlit Summer palette:
Colors for summer skin tone include soft white, charcoal gray, light blues, light pinks, cranberry red, and navy to name a few. Turquoise, Raspberry, and Teal Blue are a few of the bright Summer colors.
A few classic Summer color combinations that would work for all of the 3 types would be:
Baby pink, dove gray, soft white
Navy, soft white, baby blue
Charcoal gray, cranberry, soft white
