Identify Your Dominant Summer Colors

Identifying your dominant summer colors is a crucial step in creating a wardrobe that truly reflects your season. Summers are known for their cool, soothing, and harmonious color palette, which typically includes shades of soft blues, gentle lavenders, muted pinks, and cool greens. To identify your dominant summer colors, follow these steps:

Understand Your Undertone

The first step in identifying your dominant summer colors is to determine your undertone. Summers typically have cool undertones, so if you have pink or bluish undertones in your skin, you’re likely a summer. You can also check your wrist veins – if they appear bluish or purplish, it’s another indication of a cool undertone.

Consult a Color Professional 

For a more accurate assessment, consider consulting a color analysis expert or a color consultant by choosing our special packages. They can perform a color analysis to identify the specific shades within the summer palette that harmonize best with your skin tone, eye color, and hair color. This personalized approach ensures you pinpoint your dominant summer colors accurately.

Experiment with Swatches 

To get a sense of which colors flatter you the most, experiment with swatches of various summer shades. Hold up clothing or fabric samples in soft blues, lavenders, pinks, and greens next to your face in natural light. Notice which colors make your complexion appear more radiant and which ones may wash you out.

Consider Your Personal Style 

Your personal style plays a role in determining your dominant summer colors. While the summer palette consists of cool, muted shades, you can still incorporate your favorite summer colors in a way that aligns with your style. Whether you prefer a minimalist wardrobe or a more eclectic mix of patterns and textures, your dominant summer colors should blend seamlessly with your overall fashion aesthetic.


Mix and Match

Mixing and matching your dominant summer colors is a fun and creative way to build a versatile and harmonious wardrobe that suits your unique style. Here’s how you can mix and match your summer colors effectively:

Balance Cool Tones with Neutrals

Start by pairing your dominant summer colors, such as soft blues, gentle lavenders, muted pinks, and cool greens, with neutral shades. Neutrals like whites, creams, soft grays, and even light tans create a perfect backdrop that allows your summer colors to shine. For example, you can pair a lavender blouse with white pants or a soft blue dress with a beige cardigan.

Create Monochromatic Looks 

Monochromatic outfits can be incredibly chic and effortless. Choose one of your dominant summer colors and build an entire outfit around it. For instance, an all-blue ensemble, featuring different shades of blue, from pale aqua to deep navy, can create a sophisticated and visually appealing look.

Experiment with Color Combinations 

Summer colors harmonize beautifully with each other. Try experimenting with color combinations within your summer palette. For example, pair soft pink with cool green or lavender with muted blue for a fresh and harmonious combination. Don’t be afraid to play with different combinations until you find what works best for you.

Add Textures and Patterns 

Textures and patterns can add depth and interest to your outfits. Incorporate textured clothing items or accessories like a knit sweater, a lace blouse, or a linen skirt in your summer colors. Additionally, mixing patterns like stripes, polka dots, or floral prints in your dominant summer hues can create a playful and eye-catching look.


Accessorize Wisely

Accessorizing wisely is the key to adding flair and personality to your outfits while maintaining the harmony of your summer color palette. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your accessories:

Jewelry in Cool Tones 

Opt for jewelry in cool-toned metals like silver, white gold, or platinum. These metals complement your summer color palette beautifully and create a cohesive look. Delicate silver necklaces, hoop earrings, or bangles can add an elegant touch to your outfits.

Gemstone Choices 

When selecting gemstone jewelry, choose stones that align with your summer colors. Aquamarine, moonstone, rose quartz, and amethyst are excellent choices. These gemstones not only enhance your summer palette but also add a touch of sophistication to your look.

Scarves and Shawls

Lightweight scarves and shawls (more about lightweight fabrics)  are versatile accessories that can elevate your summer outfits. Look for scarves in shades of soft blues, lavender, or pale pinks. You can drape them over your shoulders, tie them around your neck, or wear them as a stylish headscarf.


Your handbag is a statement piece, so choose one in a summer-appropriate color. Soft pink, muted blue, or lavender handbags can become a focal point of your ensemble. Opt for a style that suits your personality, whether it’s a tote, clutch, or crossbody bag.


Don’t forget to protect your eyes with style. Invest in sunglasses with frames in cool tones, such as soft blues or translucent frames. Not only will they shield your eyes from the sun, but they’ll also add a chic finishing touch to your look.

Makeup and Nail Colors

Elevate your summer-inspired look with makeup and nail colors that harmonize perfectly with your dominant summer palette. For makeup, begin with a foundation and concealer that match your cool undertones, selecting shades with names like “cool” or “rosy.” Experiment with eyeshadows in soft blues, lavender, and pale pinks to create subtle yet enchanting eye looks. 

Enhance your eyes further with eyeliners in navy blue, charcoal gray, or muted green. Blush in soft pink or peach will provide a natural, healthy flush, while lip colors in soft pinks, cool corals, and berry shades will add a touch of vibrancy. Don’t forget to highlight with shades like pearl or champagne to achieve a radiant glow.

When it comes to nails, your summer palette shines with options. Soft blues, lavender, and muted pinks are timeless choices that exude elegance. Mint greens offer a fresh and playful vibe, while sheer neutrals like pale beige or soft gray provide understated sophistication. For those feeling creative, nail art incorporating your dominant summer colors, such as soft blue ombre or lavender floral patterns, can infuse a fun and artistic element into your manicure.
