Overview of the Warm Spring Color Palette
Today, I will be completing the final sub-domain within the Color Synergy Series; that of the Spring Woman of Style. Within the Spring color season we will look at the Clear, Light and Warm Spring color palette. If you have determined through process of elimination that you are in fact a warm color season, but do not resonate with the spectrum of colors from the Autumn color season, then perhaps you will find your signature color palette among one of the sub-domains of the lovely and refreshing spring color season.
We will begin with the Warm Spring color palette. Women who fall within the Warm Spring color palette will have a noticeable golden, warm, natural glow or vibrancy to their overall appearance. Similar to that of the Warm Autumn Woman of Style, you too have golden-yellow undertones; however, you do not appear as bronzy or coppery in appearance, your skin quality is slightly more delicate with a warm, sublte glow to it – you too are void of any coolness to your skin undertone. If you are a Caucasian woman who happens to fall within the Warm/True Spring color season your skin will appear as WARM with an ivory, peaches and cream or golden-beige tone. Women of color, more specifically African American women who fall within the Warm Spring color season look amazing in the varying warm greens, tropical blues and sunlit yellows (remember Beyonce in her FABULOUS visual album Lemonade)! Moreover, similar to the eye types of the Warm Autumn Woman of Style, Warm Spring Women of Style have eyes that appear to be lit from behind with the rays of the sun; and your hair colors natural appearance will be noticeably warm and void of any coolness to it’s overall presentation. Please see detailed examples below.
Please Note: African American women such as, Beyonce, and Vanessa Williams flow into the Warm Spring color palette – I personally feel the classic warm colors of Autumn look optimal on them; however, although the Warm Spring color palette is not necessarily their dominant, signature color season; they can successfully wear a variety of colors from the Warm Spring color palette; and so I have included them in the spectrum of colors from the Warm Spring color season to reflect the diversity of African American Women in the 12 Color seasonal analysis.
Below is beautiful, African American actress and singer Vanessa Williams; who based upon my observations is a Warm Spring Woman of Style. Other Color Analyst have found that the classic Warm Autumn color palette suits her best, but Vanessa’s stunning, Blue-Hazel eyes, natural Chestnut Brown hair and warm beige skin tone looks stunning draped in the classic Warm Spring color palette. For futher reasearch do check out Google images to observe Vanessa in some of the classic, Warm Spring colors. She looks vibrant and stunning in Springs Tomato Red’s, Teals and Yellows. She probably does flow to the Warm Autumn color season, but I think the colors might be a bit flat on her. Vanessa’s eyes need more of a warm, vibrant, brilliant array of colors from the Warm Spring color palette!
Another Warm Spring Woman of Style would be the lovely Cat Deeley. Looking back at Cat’s hair when she was much younger presents as light brown, with subtle blond highlights towards the front; her eye color is a warm, green-hazel and her skin tone appears to be a warm, peachy color. Current photos of Cat show her slaying a gorgeous, golden blond and brown hair color that in my opinion optimizes her ability to wear the classic, Warm Spring color palette with ease. If you look at Cat’s Google images you will notice that she glows in the classic, Warm Spring colors, especially in Salmon, Oranges, Yellow and Orange-Reds.

What are your POWER colors?
Your palettes POWER colors are colors that will radiate against your vibrant natural coloring. POWER colors of the Warm Spring color palette convey an energetic vibration that are energetic, warm and vibrant, which illuminates the best of who you are in your overall image and personal style, as well as your personal brand. These colors are your palettes GO-TO colors when you want to make a confident, powerful statement; especially in business/corporate environments – more on that later!
What are your ANCHOR colors?
The ANCHOR colors found within the Warm Spring color palette are considered neutral colors that can be found in your (or should be added to your) wardrobe capsules. Anchor colors ‘anchor’ your wardrobes overall look; for example, if you chose to wear a Warm Brown, 2-piece, pant suit to work or a job interview you can complement this outfit with your POWER colors as an inside blouse, completed with one of your palettes signature, ACCENT colors (coming up next!). Likewise, you can also wear your palettes anchor colors in your handbags, shoes, outdoor fall/winter/sping/summer accessories. Anchor colors are your palettes BEST neutral colors that pull everything together into a fabulous, cohesive personal style.
What are your ACCENT colors?
Lastly, your palettes ACCENT colors are the Warm Spring’s most energetic colors that some women who fall within the Warm Spring color palette may feel is too strong for them to wear within their actual wardrobe items. The rule for me and which I share with my clients is the 80/20 rule. This means that I have chosen to wear 80% of my palettes POWER + ANCHOR colors and about 20% of my palettes ACCENT colors only in my accessories, my nail color, and selectively in my makeup colors. For example, one of the accent colors from the Warm Spring color palette is that of Bright Orange Red and Bright Teal. These colors might be too strong for some women; however, by utilizing the 80\20 rule you can incorporate your palettes accent colors on your nail polish, as lipgloss/lipstick which adds a pop of sultry color to your normal makeup palette or to your evening accessories. Again, how you choose to wear any of your palettes signature colors are personal to you.
