The LIGHT WARM true, looks great in sky blue and other types of fresh, light and warm, to neutral blue. Lilac and periwinkle is also a great choice. However, It's important not to confuse these colors with powder blue, icy blue, and icy purple, because those colors are too cold and dusty for this fresh type. The LIGHT WARM needs medium saturated and light hues.
Medium to light pink in a warm or neutral shade looks great on the LIGHT WARM. Combine it with grey or brown instead of black for a fresh look. Black combined with bright colors, or high contrast color blocking, can look too harsh on this light type.
Blueish green and greenish blue, such as turquoise, aqua, kelly green, jade green, true green, and so on, looks really fresh on the LIGHT WARM true. The difference between a blueish green for a cold type and for a warm type, is that there still has to be a warm and yellow undertone to it. It can also not be too dark, saturated or icy.
Light grey is another great color for this particular type and one of the best alternatives to black as a base color. Darker shades of grey can look great too. The LIGHT WARM may look their best in fresh colors, but a neutral look can be great too.
If the LIGHT WARM is to wear a type of dark blue or navy color, make sure it's still saturated and fresh. Golden yellow can also be a really lovely color on the LIGHT WARM. Combined with shades of warm and fresh green, blue, and golden brown, you'll get a really warm and colorful look with a little more edge than the typical "innocent", LIGHT WARM look. The colors should still be done with LIGHT WARM colors, not autumn ones. The spicy look comes from the combination. It's a spring way of doing an autumn look.
Light and bright apple green is an amazing color for this type. As most warm and fresh shades of green are on this type. Also, even though some earthy shades of green can look good on this group, such as khaki, olive and army green, it's important to know the difference between where it turns too dirty green and becomes too muddy for this group. If it looks drab, you've gone too far.
The LIGHT WARM true, looks great in sky blue and periwinkle blue. Blue in general is a good look, but it's important not to confuse these colors with powder blue and royal blue, because those colors are too bold and cold, as one is too dusty and the other too dark.
Tomato red, in it's lightest and softest form is a great kind og orange-like red for the LIGHT WARM. Orange in it self is also a good look, but that too has to be light, fresh and not too saturated. Accessorize with light or fresh colors too avoid a harsh look.
Warm and neutral shades of pink and peach in most variations are great colors for the LIGHT WARM, but remember that there is a difference between hot pink and fuchsia. Fuchsia has a cold undertone, and this group needs warm colors.
Light warm colors such as light warm beige and light peach, are good color options for a light and calm look. It's also a good choice for basics, such as shoes, scarves, coats and so on. Light, warm colors make the LIGHT WARM glow.
An all ivory or cream white look is an especially good look on the LIGHT WARM. Instead of the little black dress, a white look combined with gold will look really fresh, classy, and clean. Soft white can also work, and any of these white colors would be a great choice for your makeup free days.
Warm, medium red is the best shade of red for this sub-group. Red combined with black however, is something to be very careful with. For a more calm look, use light grey as a basic color, such as on shoes or other accessories. Never use red and black together on prints and patterns, or for color blocking. It's just too bold for this type.
Golden brown, camel, warm beige, and this fresh type of moss green and olive green, can be great colors on the LIGHT WARM. Beige and camel can also be great basic colors instead of black and navy, which are too dark for the LIGHT WARM. Here too, you need to make sure you don't go too autumn. Brown and green together can look very autumn if you mistake these colors for dirty ones instead of fresh.
Beige, greige, nude, natural white, cream, ivory and so on, are all great colors on the LIGHT WARM true. Just make sure you pick a warm shade and not a cold one. You want a yellow undertone, not a blue, purple or pink one. Unless it's a warm and peachy pink, that is.
The same goes for blue jeans. Make sure the jeans color isn't too cold, as there are some differences in undertones for jeans colors as well.
Watermelon, medium orange, and peach, makes a LIGHT WARM true really pop. Color blocking is best done with little contrast and a lot of fresh, light colors for this type.
Gold is the best metall for a LIGHT WARM true, and a really great look combined with golden blonde hair. Gold paired with golden hair, will make the LIGHT WARM glow.
Lemon yellow is the best type of yellow for this particular sub-group. Combined with golden brown it will give this type the warm and fresh look it requires. The LIGTH WARM looks their best when they wear colors that look like they've been bathed in sunshine.
Fresh variations of green is a great look for the LIGHT WARM true. Kelly green, jade green, pear green, true green, and so on, are all good color choices. Just take notice of the level of saturation, you want it to be fresh and medium to light saturated. If it starts to look like emerald green it' s too saturated and bold.
Warm pink, light aqua, and light grey together makes for a fresh and colorful, but still light and delicate (enough) look. This is also a more color appropriate way of doing color blocking for a type as light as the LIGHT WARM true.
Again, light yellow is also a great look on the LIGHT WARM true. Go for colors that are light, bright, fresh and warm. Dusty, muted, bold, or dark colors can underwhelm or overwhelm this fresh faced group.
Mint green and warm shades of blue, such as turquoise, sky blue, and aqua is always a great look for a LIGHT WARM. This is a makeup free go too, as it brings out the warmth in the skin in a really fresh way. Medium brown or grey can also be a good darker color choice. If you like an edgy or goth look, find pieces in colors that work for you, as many dark colors can wash you out. Don't mistake this shade of brown for the Summer color, grey-brown.
Warm and neutral pink, in light to medium darkness, up to a hot pink, makes a LIGHT WARM really pop, at the same time as it gives them an angelic and fresh look. Take notice of the differences in hot pink from one group to another. Some are too bright, and the LIGHT WARM kind of hot pink is slightly lightened compared to the ones in other, more saturated groups.
Purple is another great color on the LIGHT WARM true. Just make sure it's the right kind of purple. It has to be warm and fresh, such as a medium purple, warm violet, or lilac.
Silver can look really good too. It's not as amazing as gold, but a good second choice. Silver and gold are actually somewhat neutral shades, so just because you can get away with silver, it doesn't mean that you can use cold colors as well. It just means that you can wear warm to neutral colors.
