Gray is one of those colors that just evokes comfort to me. Loose or fitted, something about gray is just so cozy and casual. It fits in easily for those lazy, hot summer days especially for Summer women and many Winter women. Springs and Autumns, stay far away from this side of the gray spectrum–you want to go dark if you go gray.

Nothing quite evokes a summery feel than crisp, cool, white.
If you are a Summer, then there is no limit to how and how much you can wear white this summer. This is your time to shine! Tops, bottoms, dresses, swimsuits, whatever you want to do (that isn’t dated and tacky), GO FOR IT!
If you are not a Summer, white can still work in different doses. We all know that white looks great against a summer tan or naturally darker skin for contrast purposes, but that does not necessarily mean you will glow. Just ask me, an Autumn, who looks a bit like Death in white. Mm-hmm. Listen to her. Me.
If you are a Winter, you can wear white much like Summers, but it may be a bit too much contrast to wear as a top for you darker-featured cool beauties. Instead of wearing all white like Summers, mix white with a bold, cool, jewel tone color to give you maximum glow.
If you are a Spring or Autumn, stay away from white as a shirt, blouse, button-down, dress, pattern-background, anything too close to your face. If you simply must wear white, try a white skirt or shorts with a warm, bright top. Yellow or orange work, so does navy and some of the warmer purples. Always warm it up with gold-toned jewelry.
Or, bring white into your home with linens and flowers. So serene.

Since we’re in the middle of summer, I thought I’d make a post about Summer All-Star celebrity women. That is, summer women wearing summer colors and looking fresh. Summer is the season of cool-skin undertones and light hair.
Don’t feel left out if you are not blonde! You do not have to be blonde to look good in Summer colors. Summer is a cool season, so Winters can shine in Summer colors as well, and vice-versa.
Summer seems to be the rarest season of all, at least in celebrity-land. It was hard enough finding natural blondes, and many of the natural blondes I found had warm undertones in their skin, making them Springs. So here is the short collection I’ve managed to cull of celebrity women who are blonde and have cool-skin undertones, aka Summer all-stars.
