See Your ColorBreeze Season here!

Shopalong with Lora at Pretty Your World!  has added a new feature to her ColorBreeze system. A range of clothes you can buy from her site.  Hit the picture showing your main color season and shop away! There’s lots and lots of items. Some of them are labelled with subseasons they’re specially suited for.

I advise you to skim through the clothes to see which colors fit you. See names of colors when clicking the garments you want to know more about. Alas, not always appliable.

Lora disclaims: ”Our current collections are for the 2016 Spring Shopping season (not to be confused with the color analysis ”Spring” season).”

Lora Alexander’s ColorBreeze System

Lora Alexander at PrettyYourWorld has completed her ColorBreeze color analysis system.

Wondering what order to put them in.

What does Dusty, Smokey and Toasted mean?

Let’s begin with Lora’s own presentation:

Lora says following:

Lighter Soft sub-seasons will be either Dusty or Sunlit. (The Springs and the lighter Soft Summers and Soft Autumns).

Deeper Soft sub-seasons will either be Smokey or Toasted(The Winters and the deeper Soft Summers and Soft Autumns).

Lighter Soft sub-seasons will be either Dusty or Sunlit. (The Springs and the lighter Soft Summers and Soft Autumns).

Deeper Soft sub-seasons will either be Smokey or Toasted(The Winters and the deeper Soft Summers and Soft Autumns).

Springs:

=======================================

Lora Alexander’s color tree, inspired by Munzell’s color theory. Little hard to read the signs though. Uppermost are the lightest, downmost the darkest seasons. To the left are cool seasons, to the right are the warms. From top to bottom signs read:

Numbers on the trunk are, I guess, valors from 10, lightest, to 1, darkest.
