Remember that canary yellow baby doll dress? Yes, the one that looked great in the window at the little boutique on the corner. The one that still looked great neatly folded in the shopping bag and then displayed on your bed next to your new Christian Louboutin stilettos. Yes, that one that made you look like you made a dress out of the fluorescent lighting at the DMV.
So what happened? Put simply, you wore a color in the wrong seasons. Understanding seasons can be confusing. There are fashion seasons, and then there are seasonal colors. Again, its confusing because there are colors that go in and out of style based on the time of year. Then there are colors that correspond to personal coloring seasons.
The key to understanding your season is through color analysis.
Hue refers to the colors we see and name. So red, blue, and orange are hues and so are colors with fancy names like Toasted Pumpkin and Tahitian Moonlight.
Hue also refers to color temperature. You've probably heard the terms warm and cool but colors also fall into in-between temperatures called neautral.
Value refers to the lightness or darkness of colors.
Intensity refers to brightness or darkness of a color. For example, canary yello is a bright color and baby blue is a soft color.
