An introduction to Bright Winter. In this module we will cover the essence and properties of Bright Winter, the hues (meaning the colours), the value level (how light or dark a colour is, and contrast included), and chroma (how intense or pigmented a colour is).
Welcome to the Bright Winter course!
Bright Winter is bright. But beyond that, there are several other fascinating properties of this vibrant colour tone.
In this lesson, we will cover some of the keywords that capture the essence of Bright Winter, to get an overview of the season before we delve into the details.
Red is an important colour in any woman's wardrobe.
There is no other colour that can convey strength and energy the way red can, and finding your perfect shades of red is like discovering your secret superpower.
Blue is a colour that is universally liked. A vast majority of people report blue as their favourite colour.
Bright Winter has a wide variety of absolutely stunning blues in the palette.
Green, the colour of hope, growth and all things nature. Bright Winter has some exceptionally uplifting varieties of green in the palette.
Yellow is not universally loved like blue, but it's definitely possible to find a great version of it for Bright Winter.
A fool-proof method for recognising the Bright Winter colours in the wild.
Light colours are challenging for Bright Winters, because wearing pastels make us look pasty and drained of colour.
Value is how light or dark a colour is, not how much it is worth. That being said, finding the correct value level of your season is worth a lot.
A short lesson on the contrast level of Bright Winter. Contrast can be achieved by value, or by hues across the colour wheel.
Chroma is a fancy word for colour intensity or saturation. in this lesson we cover the optimal chroma for Bright Winter.
In this module we cover Bright Winter neutrals (including Bright Winter brown), how to recognise them and how to use them. We cover pattern and scale, textures and accessories that compliment Bright Winter. There is also a chapter on putting it all together, creating Bright Winter outfits.
The neutrals play an important part in keeping an outfit refined without losing the Bright Winter energy.
Black can be very elegant, and also very boring. Bright Winter must learn to walk the line.
Grey is another staple in a Bright Winter's wardrobe. In this lesson we will focus on how to pick the right kind of grey.
White is a useful neutral for Bright Winter as a contrast for the darker neutrals. Also: have you thought about using white as your black?
Brown can be used as a neutral for Bright Winter, if you find the right kind of brown.
Navy or dark blue is an underrated neutral. It used to be the adult woman's staple neutral, but has been out of fashion for a while now, having been pushed to the sideline by black.
You don't have to walk around like a human disco ball in order to convey Bright Winter essence, but it's important to pay attention to texture when choosing clothing and accessories.
Whether you have a closet full of high heeled pumps or prefer sneakers and sensible walking shoes, you can communicate your Bright Winter season by paying attention to a few essential details.
The handbag. The ultimately female accessory. You may have just one that goes with everything, or you may have several. It is a super way to express the essence of Bright Winter.
The right kind of jewelry can be your most useful accessory as a bright Winter, especially if you are a reluctant Bright Winter who wants to express a more softspoken, subdued version of your season.
Eyeglasses are like your hair style and hair colour, always there, no matter what else you are wearing. So eyeglasses should be chosen just as carefully as hair colour.
Belts, scarves, watches etc.
Husbands. (just kidding)
