Finding your style season is all about identifying a genuinely flattering colour palette that perfectly complements your skin tone, hair, and features. It's like being handed your very own personalised colour wheel! Each one of us has a set of hues that can elevate our look, making us appear radiant, vibrant, and downright fab. Meanwhile, there are colours we're better off sidestepping—those that can make us appear dull, tired, or washed out.

It's a little bit like fashion psychology, wouldn't you say? In this comprehensive guide, we'll dive into the vibrant world of colour theory and lay out a fashion road map for each season!

Understanding the Colours Theory

The colour wheel is every stylist’s weapon for choosing power colours. Focus first on these three colour theory aspects: primary (OG bold colours to make a statement), secondary (mix of two primaries for balanced contrast), and tertiary (mix of primary and secondary to create dazzling hues like bubblegum) colours.

It’s also important to consider the colour temperatures. Warm colours, like reds, oranges, and yellows, can make your skin look warmer. On the other hand, cool colours, like blues, greens, and purples, can make your skin look more relaxed. But how exactly do you know what temperature suits you best, right?

Identifying Your Skin Tone

Discovering your best colours starts with understanding your skin tone, specifically, your undertones. Undertones are the secret ingredient to acing your outfits because they determine whether a colour complements your complexion or clashes with it. 

To uncover yours, take a peek at the veins on your inner wrist. If they appear blue or purple, you're in the cool-toned crew, which typically corresponds to fair to light skin. If your veins seem green, you're on team warm-toned, often associated with darker or olive complexions. If you spot both colours, this typically aligns with medium skin tones. 

The Four Seasons

The concept of the 'Four Seasons' in colour analysis categorises everyone into Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter, each with its unique characteristics. Your 'season' is a personalised palette that enhances your natural beauty, making you look healthier, vibrant, and more put-together. To identify your season, look at your undertone, hair, and eye colour—do they lean warm (Spring or Autumn) or cool (Summer or Winter)? 



Spring is all about fresh, warm, and clear colours. If you're a Spring, your skin has a clear, warm undertone, your eyes are typically light blue or green, and your hair is blonde or light brown. Lean into light and medium hues that reflect the season's vibrancy. Think warm peaches, golden yellows, and cute oranges like our Amber Dress.


Featuring Our Violet Dress Collection

Summer is characterised by cool, soft, and muted colours. Summers often have fair skin with cool undertones, eyes that range from soft blue to hazel, and hair from blonde to medium brown. Opt in for pastels and muted shades like our Violet Dress in Floral that features soft purples, greens, and yellows.


Autumn is the season of warm, rich, and spicy colours. Autumns usually have golden undertones to their skin, eyes that are bright and light, like amber or hazel, and hair that's rich brown, auburn, or red. Choose pieces with earthy tones like our Knit Shrug to enhance your warm glow.


Winter is marked by cool, clear, and bold colours. Winters typically have a cool undertone to their skin, strikingly dark, cool-toned hair, and vivid eye colour, from icy blue to dark brown. Opt for vibrant, high-contrast pieces like our Coatigan and pair it with a contrasting top. 

Building Your Wardrobe

We're all about curating a season-based capsule wardrobe. Invest in a few key pieces that reflect your season's colours and personal style. Perhaps a mustard-yellow blouse for the Autumn ladies or a soft pink top for the Summers among us. 

Next, gradually weave your season's hues into your wardrobe. You don't need a total overhaul, just a splash of 'you' in the form of accessories like scarves, hats or jewellery. 

Finally, mix and match within your season's palette to create striking ensembles. The key is to experiment, have fun, and let your true colours shine!

When it comes to jewellery, Spring and Autumn folks often shine in gold, while Summer and Winter individuals might prefer silver. As for handbags, Springs and Summers could opt for a fresh and soft- coloured tote, while Autumns and Winters can play around bold-coloured sling bags.

But let's not forget scarves and hats as they can add a splash of personality to any ensemble! Just make sure to stick with your season’s colours.

Makeup for Your Season

Just like your wardrobe, your makeup can also align with your season, complementing your skin tone and enhancing your natural beauty. 

  • Spring =  fresh and warm colours such as coral for lips, a soft peach blush, and earthy brown or green for the eyes.
  • Summers = cool, muted tones like a soft pink lip, lavender eye shadow, and a rosy blush. 
  • Autumn = spicy, warm hues like a brick-red lip, golden brown eye shadow, and a rich, peachy blush.
  • Winters = bold, clear colours like a bold red lip, smoky grey eye shadow, and a cool pink blush.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Choosing colours can be tricky, and it's common to make a few blunders. The biggest mistake? Ignoring your season and opting for colours that clash with your skin tone. To avoid this, stick to your season's palette and try not to be swayed by trends that don't complement your natural hues. 

Additionally, you don’t need to overhaul your wardrobe just to stay in tune with your season! You can always start small and experiment with accessories or makeup, then gradually infuse new pieces in your most compatible hues into your wardrobe. 

Remember, finding your season isn't about limiting your style, but enhancing it. So, why not give them a whirl? You might be surprised at how much they can transform your look and boost your confidence.
