Now, have a go on this picture test: To which season does this pretty dress belong? The dress in peacock blue with orange pattern. One of a kind, really, if you ask me. But it is not so simple. Christinems writes in the post:

” When we see that orange flowered dress among items that seem very True Spring – does it belong? How will we figure it out? By measuring it using comparison, of course!! Lie the swatch book on it and see what happens.”

Well, looking at the dress it feels glowingly hot, so could it be Warm Autumn? Or Bright Spring.

The Spring dress to the bottom right confuses me. Spring? Really? Could not Autumns wear it, too?

Spring and Autumn Colours

Now she asks:” Where do the flowered dress and leopard print go? Not any easier, is it? If the leopard print is Bright Spring, it will be fine with a little black. Ditto the orange dress if it’s Autumn.”

Leopard dress – bright spring? But it is not bright at all. And can we be sure it is a warm beige? Beiges like this, when ordered from clothes shops, often turn out to be matte coldly greyished, not anything that enhances the looks of warm colored people.  So I say: the leopard dress could as well be for a Summer.

The item with big white flowers on a red background, this I have no opinion of. It seems, in my eyes, more matte, cooler than the sprightly clear red dress on the top left. I see them both being of coral hues. Both are hot, so worn best by Brights and very Warms.
