I'm pretty sure that, at $48, the 12 Season Home Draping Cards are the most affordable way to figure out your color season.
But for some of us, even that is a big chunk of change!
If that's you, I recommend trying the Six Season Home Draping Cards.
But how do you narrow yourself down to just six seasons?
Here's are a few techniques that work for many people:
Ask yourself, "Can I honestly wear both black and white?" If black and white truly don't overpower you, that narrows your seasons down to five: Dark Autumn, Dark Winter, True Winter, Bright Winter, and Bright Spring. If black and white are too intense for you, that leaves seven seasons; then you only have to rule out one more.
Are you sure about your undertone? If you are pretty sure your undertone is more warm than cool, that narrows you down to the six Autumn and Spring seasons. And if you're sure your undertone is more cool than warm, that narrows you down to the six Winter and Summer seasons.
If you're confident that you need very bright colors, pick Bright Spring and Bright Winter, plus the two seasons to either side: True Winter, Dark Winter, True Spring, and Light Spring.
If you're certain you need gentler colors, pick Soft Summer and Soft Autumn, plus the two seasons to either side: True Summer, Light Summer, True Autumn, and Dark Autumn.
I hope this helps!
