The most common color type in the middle lane is summer. At the same time, it is often confused with Winter, therefore, in order to be able to correctly choose things for your wardrobe, as well as cosmetics and accessories, you should know how Summer girls look and what shades suit them.

  • The hair of the Summer girl most often has light brown (light or medium tone) or ashy (blonde or brown), as well as a mouse-brown shade.
  • They often fade under the sun's rays, acquiring a cool undertone, which, in diffused lighting, is distinguished by the appearance of a golden or platinum tint.
  • Summer girls start turning gray early, but rather slowly. Their hair turns ashy.
  • A feature of the eyes of Summer girls is dimness and haze. They are most often presented in blue, gray-blue and blue tints. There are also "summer" girls with green, green-blue, gray-green, light brown and hazel eyes.

Depending on the dominant appearance, the following subtypes of the summer color type are distinguished:

  1. Cold summer. It is also called Real or Natural Summer. The main features of this subtype are considered to have a cold appearance. The hair color of such girls is often light brown (there are both light and dark versions), and it has an ashy shade. The eyes are most often light - mostly blue and gray, as well as green.
  2. Mild Summer. In this type of summer color type, a soft appearance is noted. The hair of girls of this subtype is also light brown, but their shade is unsaturated (it is also called mouse). The shade of the eyes is also mostly light, but the difference is softness and the presence of haze.
  3. Bright Summer. The appearance of a girl with this subtype of "summer" is light, which is primarily determined by her complexion, hair and eyebrows. The main differences of this "summer" variety include a light ash shade of hair, pale smoky light eyes, and a light and delicate skin tone.

How to choose a wardrobe?

  • One of the most successful styles in the wardrobe of a Summer girl is called romantic. Outfits with feminine frills, ruffles, laces are very suitable for "summer" beauties.
  • The most suitable color palette for a "summer" girl is restrained and muted discreet tones. On such beauties, blurry shades look perfect, which can be called powdered or fogged.
  • It is advised to choose blue as the main color for the summer girl's wardrobe. A woman of this color type looks most attractive in dim blue, denim blue, blue-gray, pale blue clothes and many other shades of blue.
  • In addition to blue, the summer color type is recommended to wear lilac, dark pink, and red things.
  • True white is not suitable for "summer" girls. It is better to replace it with a shade of eggshell, bleached oak, platinum, as well as cream, creamy or milky color.
  • For Summer Girl, clothes in brown tones are suitable, if any shade of this color is distinguished by the presence of a gray undertone.
  • For linen, sundresses, T-shirts and shirts, women of the summer color type are advised to choose light shades, which are called bleached. Such clothes of mint, pale pink, violet or cream color are especially suitable for them.
  • In sportswear and evening wear, "summer" girls can choose fashionable bright colors, but they should be presented in small numbers. A good choice would be shades of summer greens, emeralds, blueberries, watermelon pulp, summer dawn.
  • A pure black color for a summer type is not a good choice, as it will accentuate the imperfections of fair skin. Also, girls of the "summer" type are not advised to wear warm colors, for example, tomato, salmon, brick, apricot or mustard shades.
  • The most suitable fabrics for the summer color type are materials that flow and are quite flexible. They should be neither too bulky nor too smooth. Clothing made from cotton, jersey, matte silk, linen, denim, tweed, knitwear or fine cashmere is a good choice. Overly dense and coarse fabrics should be avoided.
  • As for the patterns on the fabric, geometric prints and stripes are not recommended for the summer type. A reasonable amount of checkered pattern is acceptable, rustic, abstract and ethno print is considered a good choice. At the same time, it is desirable that the colors of the patterns be discreet and belong to the cold range.
  • Accessories for the summer color type should be selected with an unusual pattern and interesting shape.It is important that the range of jewelry is cold, so the best choice would be jewelry made of white gold, platinum or silver. In this case, shine should be avoided, giving preference to matte products. Jewelry made of aged metal looks great on the "summer" girl. A good option is called pearl if it is white, pink or gray. If you want to wear jewelry with stones, then we recommend products with light emeralds, pink garnet, diamonds, aquamarine or blue sapphire. From jewelry, a good choice would be products made of wood, beads, matte soft leather or soft plastic.
  • The best material for shoes and bags is called suede and leather, but such materials should be of a calm shade and a matte or semi-matte surface (patent leather will look unnecessarily rough). Shoes with a small wedge heel or a sophisticated neat heel look very attractive on a Summer girl. In addition to leather, the bag can be fabric or straw.

Should you change your natural hair color?

Many "summer" girls are unhappy with their natural hair, considering their shade boring and expressionless. But, when repainting, they often choose the wrong tone - either too dark or warm. As a result, the summer appearance changes dramatically.

So, if you want to change the color of your hair without destroying the contrast of your appearance, it is best to stay in a cool palette. In addition, you can color or partially lighten some strands.

Makeup subtleties to complete the look

  • Shadows for the Summer girl should be a gentle and cool shade. A versatile option is blurry tones of gray, blue, pink and green.
  • Bright lipstick is not suitable for a summer type (unless the girl has a contrasting appearance), so it is better to take a closer look at the pale pink shades of lip cosmetics.

Yes, everything is individual. Everything changes from the degree of tanning of the skin - those colors that did not go before can now very much suit.

I am just lightening some strands - this is the best option for me! Apparently, it's not for nothing that I don't like yellow - it just doesn't suit my color type.
