    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNND:


    I was cleaning up my IG feed and realized I've been following several TW analysts for months, and one of them is a natural blonde. I thought I'd forward you her link, as well as several of her blonde TW draped clients. I remember you were skeptical blondes could be Winters a while ago, so here's the evidence:

    BLONDE TRUE WINTERS

    https://www.instagram.com/houseofcolour_laurafrantz/ >She has loads real good picks of her in TW clothing, specifically the before and after putting up appropriate makeup ones. Oh and there's a pic of her little son who's also a blonde TW there!



    Some examples:




    Many more under the cut:



















    There are many other House of Color accounts on IG, they use the Ketwell system where for Winters we have:

    Jewel> The high contrast True Winter
    Icy (also called "Elsa Winter")> Lighter and muted True Winter
    Sprinter> Bright Winter
    Sultry> Cooler leaning Dark Winter
    Burnished> Warmer leaning Dark Winter



    I like the House of Color method because is infinitely cheaper than Sci-Art, and just as accurate.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Xtina is True Winter:




    She's a natural blonde:



    My work here is done

    Here's what my lines are kind of like. These next 4 photos are all from earlier today. Trying to look less like a hobo student kid recently, so I had to update my wardrobe. I have no concept of fashion rules so I might be doing it wrong whatever, my narcissism feels over 9000 with this post anyway.

    I'm at about 5ft7,5" and 155lb/70kg right now so I suspect I'm pretty mesomorphic actually.



    ^ I don't normally dress this grimdark lol, I was just trying the coat on. I feel fat as fuck rn though so I didn't cinch.



    ^ I bought these for $20 USD each the patterns are quite lacy and "romantic" (around classic-neutral-dramatic I think?), the white a little bit gamine too maybe.



    ^ With my coloration. Matches enough? Actually idk, but I think the lace and details work with my features.



    ^ Normal everyday errands look, or what I went out wearing. Kinda looks like I live off gumdrops in this one, my jaw is hidden.


    This one is from when I was 17 and worked out and had no T&A and was probably ~130lb:



    ^ I think the purple was a tiny bit off and the dress was kinda ill-fitting but the style was otherwise good. Quite dramatic-romantic if I'm doing it right. I actually looked and felt pretty SLE there lol . My base features are kind of round/soft, delicate and chiseled at the same time. Romantic spectrum probably works IDK.

    Interesting take nevertheless, what did you think about the turquoise and corals in particular?

    Yes, very Yin facial features, except brows. The types you are definitely not: D, FN, SD, C, DC, N. How is Soft Natural's clothing, a bit relaxed with higher waist emphasis?

    They add emphasis to your eyes and lips for different reasons. The turquoise adds depth of tone around your eyes and subtle contrast for your lips, and then the corals have the same effect with your lips and eyes reversed.

    The reason I liked the least-liked row by you is that they seemed to create contrast for your entire face. I think the palette was a different season but I don't think the warm/cool balance was too off, that could have been why, idk? Or if they were both the wrong ones and the offness created a harmony. I thought that it made your features look striking, porcelain, and ethereal, anyway.

    The only think about too "N" sometimes I would worry about is that everything would just blend into the roundedness and it'd be like Majin Buu if you know. I've learned that I should do waist and more curve emphasis in general (romantic also covers this I think?) so that part is true. There should be probably something sharp at least otherwise it'd look too yin overall but I'll think about it.

    This is Majin Buu

    I'll wear all the Dark Winter stuff for all the people here who are hesitant to since I'm just used to that. I guess I could be a trend-setter, but then I'd have to post a picture on 16t, which I might do, if I weren't the world's worst photographer. My Dracula coat needs to go to the tailor anyways.

    I can't post selfies because I'm a vampire so I don't show up in photographs

    I figured out why you liked this row, the fabric is draped at the chest and very asymmetric --> Soft Dramatic! That's also the reason why my own favorite pieces are in the "not optimal category" even if they're dark and don't flatter my complexion. The print is SD with the large flowers and decor. Sometimes Kibbe overrides season. I mean look:



    "Detail should be oversized and ornate"

    "Prints: Bold, wild, and ornate shapes. Splashy watercolors. Oversized and abstract florals. Animal prints. Irregular shapes with soft or rounded edges."

    Animal prints:



    (Don't quote)

    Looks good and matches my height impression. Makes much more sense now.

    Lmao at the DBZ reference! He's entirely R. My reasoning was: The last dress pic is tight at the waist but it's not really cinched since there is no R curve. And the waist emphasis coat in the first one doesn't do much especially since the lines are yang. The pants however are great in that one. What about SG?

    @Playing With Fire Thanks for the input darlin'. The second lady hit home If you have time can you do the same for True Spring, Light Spring, Light Summer - darker hair, non-blonde draping clients? For Scarlet I already searched her original color, it's quite astounding.

    For clients I only found this, we already had that somewhere I think:



    Here I am not sure if it's her natural color:
