We have previously looked at how certain colours appeal to different personalities more than others, and choosing the right colour can affect your mood in our blog “Colour and You”. We have looked at how each colour can have a different affect on how we feel, now we are going to look at which tones fit with each personality type and how you can dress to feel like the best version of yourself based on this theory. The best colours to get that ‘glow’.
The chances are you will look at a colour palette and instantly be drawn to it as it is in harmony with your personality. If not, there are various quizzes you can take online or in “The Little Book of Colour” by Karen Haller. Many people have more than one personality type, with one being more dominant.
While each colour palette refers to a particular season, within each palette you will find three different ‘sub-palettes’ that will work throughout the year. Dark autumn is the typical colour palette you will see through the autumn months, however the softer shades of Soft Autumn and brighter shades of True Autumn are ideal for the spring and summer seasons.
The Earthy Personality
The Earthy personality is warm and caring, with an enquiring mind and a desire to understand. You will feel happiest when you are in nature, whether it is pottering in the garden or walking in the woods.
The Autumn Colours
The Autumn colours are yellow based, but with more intensity than those you will find in the Spring palette. The difference between these shades is the addition of black. These colours are earthy, with a grounding energy, similar to autumnal leaves- rich rust red, golden yellows, saffron and burnt oranges. Add in a range of earthy browns and greens to complete the palette.
