Every one of the 63 style identities can be manifested within every seasonal palette. (Though your coloring may play a small role in your style ID.)
The trick is to read each recommendation for your style identity's color schemes and adapt it by adding your color season's name somewhere in the sentence.
For example, I would recommend deep reds and purples to create a Romantic look; if you're a Dark Autumn Romantic, you would think to yourself, "Choose the deep reds and purples from my Dark Autumn palette."
To create a Classic look, head-to-toe-conservative neutrals is effective; in the case of a Dark Autumn, she would choose from the most conservative neutrals from her Dark Autumn palette.
You can find more information about your style identity's palette recommendations in the shopping guide for your type.

I am curious. Should you determine your season first or your style type first or should you do it at the same time?

Elizabeth, I really truly believe (and hope) it's a myth! As how could your colouring decide your face & body structure...?

But it is true, that a type is connected to person's colouring. So it's easier to dress if thery correlate. I'm Gamine and it does not go very well with Soft Summer.

I think one consideration is that coloring is relative to you. I'm a light summer, so while my colors would look too light on most people, on me, they read medium - just right. If I were dramatic, I'd wear the darker end of my palette (charcoal) to achieve the power effect that a winter would get with black. A winter natural would want to mix the most natural 'in' colors (the jewel tones).

Thanks for making the point, W., about color being relative to you. Blocks of charcoal grey and vanilla white would indeed read as Dramatic on a Light Summer. :-)

Best thing i choose to be look romantic is the colors of my dresses which are deep red, purple and the pink color increase my beauty... Truth is beauty is one of the trustworthy and informative platform from where I daily read posts and try to follow the tips to improve my beauty.

Julia, I'm not Rachel, but just my two cents on this: I've concluded it's way better to do the style calculator quiz *without* using a photo, as like you said the type of photo used greatly affects the result!

Hi, Julia! So many great questions here. I'll try to respond helpfully.

I'm almost positive I don't have a single Dramatic bone in my body, but everyone always says Winters tend to have some D in their style identity. My favorite style looks like Ethereal Ingenue, I wore it long before I discovered style analysis because I thought it looked good on me. I just wear it in darker colors because I always thought these look good on me too! Obviously I can just wear the clothes I want and find retailers that produce them in colors I want and don't care about how it's called, but it's a bit weird to see people saying "wear light colors in your palette for Ethereal, avoid dark colors" because the overall effect of your style relies more on cut than on color imo. They dressed Liv Tyler in burgundy and dark green for Lord Of The Rings (which aren't the lightest colors in her palette either) and she looked just as Ethereal as Cate Blanchett in her whites and silvers!

I want to know the answer to this, as well!

I wason lucky enough to be style diagnosed as a Romantic/Dramatic/Natural by Rachel; something I could not see by myself, but fits me perfectly. Later I bought the colour sample full kit and self diagnosed as a Bright Spring; her online quiz had also come up with this answer. I had thought I was a deep Autumn or Winter! Just to check, I went to see an CMB consultant (at great cost) here in the UK, (I didn't say what Rachel had come up with before the consultation, only after). She found all by herself that I was Bright Spring too, so all confirmed! This very question of how to put those two elements together has been in my mind this year. I also lead a very casual, at home life, not at all dressy or in romantic or dramatic dresses most of the time. All natural looks entirely wrong though. So, I have tentatively gone for a still feminine look with peachy pink and turqoise tops and jeans/ leggings and jewellery, also little boots and bags that add an element of casual drama in black or darker, brighter pinks etc to add contrast I need in colour (I have dark hair and eyes and very pale skin). Not sure that I am totally getting it right, but I play with fairly cheap things from H&M etc and see what feels right. Selfies are important and always take one in the mirror in the fitting room before purchase!

Hi! I have a Classic Style ID and my season is Bright Spring. Isn’t it that Classics look good in neutrals? Should I stick to Bright Spring neutrals? Isn’t that too boring when my season calls for bright contrasting colors? Thank you.
