History lesson

Seasons, honey, not just for weather anymore!

Ever heard someone say, "Darling, you're such a Winter!" and wondered if they were commenting on your chilly demeanor? Well, Felicia, they were probably talking about your color season! And if you're scratching your head in confusion, don't fret. We're about to spill the tea on this whole color season business. What's in a Season?Each of us, yes, even you, has a natural color palette. It's like Mother Nature's little gift, showing up in our skin, eyes, and hair. The whole idea behind seasonal color analysis is to figure out this palette and match it to one of the twelve color seasons. Think of it as your personal style horoscope, but way more accurate.Breaking Down the Basics Hue-tastic! First up, we've got hue. It's all about whether you're warm, cool, or somewhere in between. If you've got warm undertones, think golden sunsets and cozy campfires. Cool undertones? Imagine moonlit nights and crisp winter mornings. Value and Contrast, Baby! Next, we dive into value and contrast. It's like the brightness setting on your phone. Some of us shine bright like a diamond, while others have a more muted, vintage vibe. And contrast? Well, it's all about how your features play off each other. High-contrast folks have features that really pop against each other, while low-contrast peeps have a more harmonious blend. Chroma-licious! Finally, there's chroma. It's the spice level of your coloring. Some of us are all about that bold, spicy life with vibrant, clear colors. Others prefer things a bit more subdued and soft. And then there are those who like to keep things balanced, not too spicy, not too mild. Finding Your Seasonal VibeNow that we've got the basics down, let's talk seasons:Spring: If you're all about that warm and light life, with a dash of brightness, you're a Spring. Think fresh blooms and morning sunshine. Summer: Cool and light with a side of muted? That's Summer for you. Imagine lazy beach days and soft pastel sunsets. Autumn: Warm and dark, with a hint of muted tones, screams Autumn. Envision golden leaves and cozy sweater weather.

  1. Hue-tastic! First up, we've got hue. It's all about whether you're warm, cool, or somewhere in between. If you've got warm undertones, think golden sunsets and cozy campfires. Cool undertones? Imagine moonlit nights and crisp winter mornings.
  2. Value & Contrast, Baby! Next, we dive into value and contrast. It's like the brightness setting on your phone. Some of us shine bright like a diamond, while others have a more muted, vintage vibe. And contrast? Well, it's all about how your features play off each other.

Finding Your Seasonal VibeNow that we've got the basics down, let's talk seasons:

  • Spring: If you're all about that warm and light life with a dash of brightness, you're a Spring. Think fresh blooms and morning sunshine.
  • Summer: Cool and light with a side of muted? That's Summer for you. Imagine lazy beach days and soft pastel sunsets.
  • Autumn: Warm and dark, with a hint of muted tones, screams Autumn. Envision golden leaves and cozy sweater weather.
  • Winter: If you're rocking the cool, dark, and bright combo, you're a Winter. Picture snow-capped mountains and starry nights.

But Wait, There's More!Now, if you're thinking, "This is all great, but how do I figure out my season?" Well, it's a mix of art and science. You can start with the metal test. Gold lovers, you're on the warm side. Silver aficionados, you're team cool. And if both look fab on you? Congrats, you're neutral!

Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

Olive green matches many!

Okay, okay. We might have put some doubt on whether olive green is one color-for-all. While it doesn’t fit in all categories, it fits in most. That means if you’re looking for bridesmaid dresses that will suit your entire entourage, olive green might just pull it off.

Olive green happens to have a few depths of shades, from light olive to deep olive, which further expands its far-reaching palette. It's also a great utility wear color, which makes it ideal for work and leisure activities too.

But who has a closet full of olive green anyway? You want to be able to mix your wardrobe up a little and not look like you’ve joined the army all the time. Your next best option is crisp white, then navy. Colors you might want to steer clear from unless you have the go-ahead from your stylist include pale yellow, light orange, lavender, and dark pink. You have to have specific coloring to pull these colors off without a tonal clash.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
