What is an Autumn color palette?

An Autumn season color palette is full of warm colors like mustard yellow, eggplant purple, and pumpkin orange.  Some of the neutral Autumn colors are ivory, cream, khaki, olive green, and brown.  True Autumn color palette clothing is warm, rich, and earthy – think of the colors of the fall leaves, the bark of the trees, and the deep evergreens.

There are 3 different coloring patterns that we see in Autumn types, and that they each need a unique Autumn seasonal color palette.  Are these palettes entirely different?  No.  There are definitely colors that overlap – most of the neutrals do, but there are some important differences in the other colors depending on that particular Autumn’s skin tone, hair, and eye color.  Autumn palettes vary, depending on their dominant quality – soft, warm, or deep.
