  1. Greetings - I think the seasonal color theory works best for those with clear-cut coloring. I, for example, have classic Snow White coloring (skin white as snow [almost], hair dark as coal [almost]). I look and feel my best in winter colors; I look insipid in cool pastels, and gray in warmer tones. I know a Spring who looks fabulous in "her" colors, and less well in other seasons. As I get a bit older, I'll probably dip more into the softer, colors as my coloring will fade. For those with less clear coloring (some days could be Summer/some days could be Autumn, for example), your universal colors are a great place to start as they go with any neutral - no worries about wearing the right color bottom.

  2. My very best to you and your mother. I just love how you continue to apply common sense to all of this wardrobe stuff. There's so much conflicting advice out there which can lead to a lot of confusion when the "rules" disagree from one source to another. I look forward to your return and your relaxed take on things. So helpful!

  3. This is genius. Truly inspired. Although it is a greater leap to go from winter to spring, I will use the principles.

  4. I apologies for the late comment on this post but I only recently discovered this blog. I personally find that www.kettlewellcolours.co.uk has a good selection of t-shirts in a wide variety of styles and colours. Their entire range is based on the seasonal colour palette..
