Colours for Spring and Summer if you're a Sultry Winter
Can you mix quite a lot of white/silver grey/mid grey in? I think the greys can be a nice alternative, especially for summer trousers etc. And don't forget stone for linen/cotton bottom halves, and mole can be a nice alternative to black/navy too. White shirt/cardigan over darker/brighter vest can work too.
I'm a dark autumn, so similar in that I look best in the darkest colours of my palette, but I buy tube skirts/shorts/jeans in the lightest colours (apricot, off white etc for me) to lift things.
Don't feel you have to stick only to the sultry colours for the entire season, you'll get v v bored.
How about adding chinese blue, deep pink, cobalt, red or any of the bright and ice colours to your outfits?
These could be in the form of jewellery, shoes, scarves, belts, bags, make up, nail polish etc if buying vests and t-shirts in these colours would be too much. A brightly coloured cardigan is very handy if worn with dark colours.
Even if mole and stone aren't great next to your face, they can be great as bottom halves for creating a less vibrant Winter look if you're feeling a bit exhausted by wearing some of the stronger colours, iykwim. Have you stopped by the Winter colours thread on here? Lots of good advice on there.
