How to wear silver as Winter or Summer color season
I’m back with part 2 of our mini series on how to wear your BEST metallic metals to complement your color synergy season! Today we will be taking a closer look at the cool, accessory-metals of antique silver and bright/soft silver, as it applies to the winter season colors and summer season colors. If you haven’t had a chance to check out my Color Synergy Series, I invite you to check out PART 1. and PART 2. as the color analysis tutorials will hopefully help you to gain a better understanding of what your signature POWER colors are and how to go about incorporating them into your wardrobe, accessories and makeup! If you fall within the winter season colors or the summer season colors your most optimal accessory-metal will more than likely be some form of silver; this depends on whether you have been assessed as being a Deep Winter, Cool Winter and Clear Winter OR if you happen to be a softer cool season you will look BEST in silver that resonates with the Cool Summer, Light Summer and Soft Summer palette.
Silver in appearance is a cool, icy color that sparkles beautifully on women who fall within the winter or summer season. The trick to wearing silver correctly in your accessories and wardrobe items is to ensure that you are wearing the correct intensity of silver, so that it further illuminates your natural coloring. Similar to that of the winter and summer season within the color analysis system; silver is also considered a cool color. As such, women who have been assessed as being a Deep Winter will look stunning in antique-silver, metal-accessories that are deep and intense. As mentioned in my Color Synergy tutorial women whose dominant season is that of the Deep Winter look amazing in colors that strong, vivid, bold and provide high contrast against their striking winter eyes, hair and natural skin coloring. Likewise, women who fall into the Cool or Clear Winter season will look equally gorgeous in silver as well, just depends on which form of silver you feel your absolute best in.
Note: if you happen to flow into a warm color season, such as spring or autumn you can also get away with wearing gold too! Just depends on the type of gold you choose to wear.
Lastly, women who are cool in appearance and do not have the same type of deep intensity of those women who fall within the winter season, but within the cool summer season can also wear silver; however, I have personally observed that sterling-silvers, pewter and other softer, less intense forms of silver look stunning on women whose dominant color season falls within the traditional summer color palette. Note: that’s not to say you can’t experiment with antique-silver as well, color analysis after all is about your comfort level when wearing your signature POWER colors, but my personal preference for women whose dominant season is summer are silver accessories that are a bit softer and cool, rather than deep and intense like antique-silver, typically worn by women whose dominant color palette deep, clear or cool.
This is why I highly encourage women who are transitioning their image and personal style from the old to the new to invest in a color synergy (color analysis) consultation first, before proceeding with purchasing new wardrobe and accessory items that do nothing for you because you are probably wearing the wrong colors!

A few things to watch out for:
Do your eyes become more clear, bright and alert
Does the gold metallic sit nicely against your natural coloring
How do you feel wearing that particular color of metal? Do you feel amazing and confident or dull and drab.
