Lilac and lavender hues are great light, neutral, and fresh colors on the LIGHT COOL neutral. It's a color that is really similar on both the LIGHT COOL and the LIGHT WARM chart, so it really brings out the unique look of this sub-group.
This type of soft golden yellow is probably the closest a LIGHT COOL will come to orange on their chart (next to the tomato red and peachy pink). However, the LIGHT COOL neutral has enough influence from the LIGHT WARM to pull of some shades of orange. So, orange is not impossible for this sub-group.
Both light and bright shades of both neutral, warm, and cool toned pink, are really great colors for this delicate, low contrast group flowing into the LIGHT WARM.
Bright shades of green can also be a good look on the LIGHT COOL neutral. Just pay extra attention to the shade of the color, as this is not emerald green or typical mint green. These colors have a blue undertone, and has been softened. That means that these colors have been lightened to fit this group.
Navy blue is also a great color for the LIGHT COOL neutral. Just make sure you remember that this navy blue (coat and skirt) is actually a lot lighter in color than the typical very dark and deep navy (purse). Accessorize with neutral or similar tones to makes sure the look doesn't become too bold. The best way to do color blocking for this type is to do it monochromatic, or use colors that are close in shade and intensity.
Here are three examples of a good kind of red for the LIGHT COOL. This first type of red is the more pink toned red with a blue undetone, and more true to the cold color family. However, since the LIGHT COOL neutral is not purely cold, they can do both with even greater success than the other LIGHT COOL types. Pattern or color blocking is best done either monochromatic, all light colors, or pairing dark and bright with soft and light.
Light and soft shades of neutral and cool toned pink, purple, and blue, are really great colors for this delicate, low contrast group.
Light shades of blue is one of the best colors on a LIGHT COOL neutral, next to the the other light and or neutral shades. So if you want a colorful everyday look, blue is a great color. These blue shades are actually so good on this type that it can even be matched with black without it becoming too harsh. Light colors will still be a better accessories look, though.
If you like an edgy look, it's best to do one in your own best colors. You don't need to go all black to be edgy.
Pick an edgy shape or material in a LIGHT COOL color, and it will look a lot more natural and fresh on you.
Soft white, baby pink, and baby blue, are all incredible colors on the delicate and light toned LIGHT COOL neutral. The low contrast level and light skin makes them perfect for this snow queen look. This type can combine a lot of light and soft colors, without looking childish.
The LIGHT COOL neutral, just can't go wrong with a light ballerina pink or a soft and light blush. These colors brings out the absolute best in this delicate and light toned type.
Nude, beige, greige, grey, stone, taupe, and all these soft neutral colors are a great look for the LIGHT COOL. They are also your best colors for accessorizing a bold or dark colored look, as it will help soften the overall impression and keep it light. This dark purple-brown is very much a LIGHT COOL color, but you should still be a little careful with pairing it up with other dark or bold colors. A very dark look can easily become a little dull on this type.
Most shades of cold, soft, and light blue will look lovely on this type. You could even say that light blue might be the LIGHT COOL neutral's absolute best color. Combined with silver, it gives a icy feel few other than this type can pull off.
A great way of pulling of a "black and white" look, is to switch it around and go for a "white with black" look. For this to work, the soft white should dominate the look and the black print has to be gentle. Combine it with a neutral tone for a soft look.
This light coral is also a great color on this type. Just don't confuse it with very saturated shades of coral. Also, if you want to wear black and white patterns, this kind of small print is the best way to do so. The black and white actually comes off as grey and gives a softer look. It's technically a little "color cheating", but that's how you do your version of what's traditionally more of a bold and CLEAR look, using LIGHT COOL colors.
Purple is an amazing color on the LIGHT COOL neutral, just make sure the shade is not too bold, but rather has a softness to it. Dark or light, the color should not be very "loud". Try to separate a deep and dark or highly saturated color, from the soft, light and delicate version. If it has a little grey or white added to it, it will make the color appear more calm.
This is a raspberry red and almost more of a hot pink shade, and a great look on the LIGHT COOL neutral.
Silver, platinum, white gold, pearl white, gold, and a silver and gold mix are the best metallics for the LIGHT COOL neutral. Silver is your absolute best metallic, but these others are a close second. Gold works really well on this neutral sub-group too, because it's flowing so much into the LIGHT WARM.
Icy grey and ballerina pink are both great examples of a neutral and striking look for the LIGHT COOL neutral. Grey is the LIGHT COOL's version of black, and great for basics and accessories. Light and medium pink is a lovely look that will bring out this sub-groups delicate features.
Chiffon yellow, is the absolute best type of yellow on the LIGHT COOL neutral. A neutral can get away with a lot more yellow than any other LIGHT COOL, but the best color will still be what's right for their type.
This watermelon, shades of pink, and colors similar to these, are part of the reason why it can be so difficult to separate LIGHT COOL and LIGHT WARM colors. Not only do their color charts actually share a lot of colors, with only slight differences to set them apart. But, on top of that, the LIGHT COOL neutral is so borderline the LIGHT WARM, that they actually look good in many of the same colors. Sometimes because the colors on the chart are similar, and sometimes because they can borrow colors from eachothers.
This "baby colored" outfit, would look really childish on most of the other color types. However, on the LIGHT COOL neutral it just looks too good not do it, and it comes off as fresh and flattering instead.
The other type of green a LIGHT COOL neutral can use, is a dark type of cold green. However, these types of darker LIGHT COOL colors has been lightened to fit the LIGHT COOL color family. This is to make sure the shade doesn't become too dark or saturated, so it can still match the low intencity of this type. If you compare it to dark shades on higher contrast groups, you will notice that this is a softened version of the color.
This third version of the best kind of red for the LIGHT COOL neutral, is a type of light tomato-red. It might look a more of a warm color, but it looks surprisingly fresh on the LIGHT COOL. It will still look a bit more orange on a LIGHT COOL than it would on a LIGHT WARM, but it's still a very pretty look. Just make sure the tomato-red you pick is the lightened, soft and fresh version, not the bold, dirty and fiery version.
When accessorizing the LIGHT COOL colors, you want to use soft white, light grey, nude, beige, greige, silver, or something similar. A LIGHT COOL neutral looks it's best in delicate color combinations. Even a LIGHT COOL color can become a little harsh if combined with a high contrasting color, so keep it light.
As any good little summer group, a LIGHT COOL neutral has to look good in grey-ish shades of brown. If you want a casual and neutral toned look for every day use or basics, grey-brown, taupe, grey, stone, navy blue, soft white, nude, beige, greige and so on, are your colors. Black is best left to days when you can do a full face of makeup. Gold will also work really well on a neutral.
This color is a grey-green with blue undertones, similar to the qualities of the color stone. It's a great "dark" color on the LIGHT COOL neutral, as it comes of deep and rich without actually being dark and saturated. It also has that cold toned look that makes it brilliant as an ice queen colored metallic. If you want to use black accessories, it's best to pair it with soft, delicate, and light, LIGHT COOL colors.
