Historical Adaptations for Summer Types


Once you've had your Seasonal Color Analysis and learned your Seasonal Type, the next step is to discover your personal expression of your Seasonal Style.

Suzanne Caygill offered some assistance by identifying fashions from certain historical periods that might inform the style for each Season.

The lines and rhythms of design in the periods and styles below seem to complement the Summer type.

These are just some of the possible modern adaptations for each period as listed in her book, "Color The Essence of You".

Grecian


Roman


Adapted Victorian


Turn of the Century


Directoire


Empire


Delicate French Periods (Louis XIV, XV, XVI)


Queen Anne


Early Georgian


Flemish


You may find affinity with one (or several) of these historic fashion periods which may help you as you develop your own personal Summer Style.

Not a Summer? Stay tuned, I'll be sharing Historical Periods for Adaptation for each of the other Seasons in the coming weeks.
