Autumn Plaid

Today I will share an example of what to look for in patterns depending on your season. Plaid has always been a hot pattern for fall/winter. Something about it just invokes coziness.

The 5 plaid items at the top are what Springs and Autumns should look for, color-wise. The main color in these items are either yellow, tan, olive green, or ivory. If you are a Spring or Autumn, you should always make sure that the dominating color (for plaid it’s usually going to be the background color) is warm. Springs look best in the lighter warms like the tans and ivories while Autumns look best in the yellows and olive greens. Also, notice that the coat at the top is yellow and black plaid. Black is not an autumn color. However, the yellow sufficiently overpowers the black in this pattern to where it will read as ‘warm’ when it is worn.

The 5 plaid items at the bottom are what Summers and Winters should look for, color-wise. The main color in these items are either blue, pink, red, or turquoise. If you are a Summer or Winter, you should always make sure that the dominating color (for plaid it’s usually going to be the background color) is cool. Summers look best in the lighter cools like the paler pinks and turquoises while Winters look best in the reds and more vibrant blues (though you can also pull off turquoise effectively).

    This is great 🙂 But I thought springs could wear turquoise as well?

  2. Hi jkitten! No, Springs should avoid blues in general. Summers however, can be all over it!
