Introducing…your Color Code

Previously I referred to these as your Dominant Color Category but the higher-ups realized that terminology could be a bit confusing so now we refer to them as your Color Code (Light, Deep, Soft, Clear, Warm, Cool).

Your Color Code

For the next few weeks, I’ll be updating some Pinterest board descriptions and blog posts to reflect the new Color Code verbiage but I’ll put it all here for you as well.

It’s worth noting that unlike the seasonal system, we only have SIX Color Codes to keep things simple. You might be in need of an update if you think your “type” was wrong or is outdated.

There are six categories (or codes) each with a link to the Pinterest board:

1. Light.

Naturally blonde or white hair. Fair skin tone. Light to medium eye color.

Medium to dark brown or black hair. Medium to dark skin tone. Hazel, brown or black eyes.

  1. First of all, congratulations and praises for Kate! How exciting! I didn’t make it to AZ this summer but have been following your posts. So happy for you!
    I read, with great interest, the new classifications for our color type. I seem to be able to wear both “Warm” and “Clear.” I’m far from a red head (although in my 20s I did dye my hair reddish and everyone loved it…) And I love rocking the animal prints as well as bold mustard golds and oranges. Pastels are NOT for me…as you know…but I like white, and have a wonderful summer white pantsuit that is old as decades, still fits, and looks great.
    So…what am I? LOL, thank you, Tab!

    1. Thank you my friend!! 🙂 I do loooove the warm tones on you, especially the orange! And it’s funny, the white doesn’t always work on the same girls as the warm tones because white is considered cool. I think you’re one of those fortunate ladies who can wear a variety of colors because you’re quite neutral. I agree on avoiding the pastels, though–definitely not your vibe! 🙂 If you like the Clear colors, I say go for it! And you can adjust for the seasons, so for now go with the orange, red and even moss green if you want.

      1. Hi Tabitha 10 years ago I had colour analysis and was told I’m a clear spring I had dark brown hair light skin and blue grey eyes I have always enjoyed the spring colours though I’m not overly warm looking!

        Last year I let my hair go grey and now unsure of my colours am I still a spring ?

        I would say I’ve cooled down a little but have I lost my clarity as my hair and skin are both light now ??

        1. Hmm. We would probably have said you were a CLEAR with the dark hair, light skin and bright eyes. If you’re more gray now, that’s definitely COOL. For women in transition, I always recommend wearing the colors with cross-over between both categories so for you that would be a pink (maybe magenta, maybe more hot pink), purple, a teal or turquoise and royal blue. The COOL-er you get, you can do more high contrast black and white and you can do metallic silver! I hope that helps.

  2. Hi, Casey! You sound exactly like a Soft Spring! It’s right in-between Autumn & Spring (but still predominantly spring)! It’s essentially both Clear and Soft. I am a biracial Soft Spring (similar to Dominique Reighard but my eyes & skintone are browner). This color analysis blog goes in-depth about this less talked about color group (https://www.idealiststyle.com/blog/clear-warm-the-rules-of-wearing-colors). It changed my beauty life- I get so many compliments now! She also has a Soft Spring specific page as well (https://www.idealiststyle.com/blog/best-clear-warm-soft-looks). I really appreciate the blogs of Idealist Style, Truth is Beauty, and of course Tabitha Dumas for doing color anayalsis the right way (like not automatically stereotyping ethnic people into Deep seasons). For, example, I’ve always noticed how Kerry Washington looks great in Clear (aka Bright) Spring colors. You don’t even have to know about colour analysis to take notice of that. Someone would have to try really hard to make themselves believe that she looks good in deep or earthy colors. Yet so many analysists are brainwashed that way. But Tabitha here has her correctly listed as a Clear, which she is!

    Hope these links were of help to you! 🙂

    Best Wishes, Nicole
