Women of Winter

Since we are officially in the Winter season, I wanted to focus on women whose color palettes are Winter. Every woman's coloring determines what season she is- Spring, Winter, Summer or Autumn. I use the Color Me Beautiful books as a reference.
Here are some defining traits for Winters:

*Hair color is jet-black, brown black, silver, white, medium to dark brown with ash highlights
*Hair will have no red highlights
*You are not a Winter if you are a blonde
*Skin tones are porcelain white, beige, rosy beige, olive, cool beige, almond, cocoa, mocha, mahogany, ebony to black with blue or reddish undertones
*Many African Americans, Asians, Native Americans, Latinas & Middle Eastern women are Winters
*Deep, dark eye color, including black, black brown, cool hazel with blue or green, dark blue, gray-blue, gray-green or charcoal

The first collection is a great look for daytime. You can't go wrong with corduroy pants and a sweater, accompanied by a few accessories to balance out the cuteness with comfort! You could add additional layers, like a long sleeved tee under the sweater, or a jacket on top, if needed.
If you are planning to attend any holiday parties this year, you can …
