Virtual Draping Consult

Sarah asked for a mini consult.  She had done a great job of draping many colors and shared them with me.  I decided she is probably a Jeweltone Summer, though she could be a Cool Winter, but she related to the summer-winter personality more than the winter-summer personality.

Jeweltone Summer is a Caygill Summer subtype, also used by Zyla.  It's a category that often contains brown eyed summers as well.  But I think of it as a Summer with extremely high secondary Winter.  A blue eyed possible celeb is Marion Cotillard.

There are also the names Contrasting Summer and High Contrast Summer:

The biggest difference between Summers and Winters are their neutrals of course.  But I've read several places that Jeweltone Summer can wear black (though not white).

So the colors are similiar but worn with different neutrals.  Also Summers will tend to wear more monochromatic outfits, while Winters wear a light and a dark with a bright color.  I've posted pics of her in black and white stripes with bold colors, which she does seem to be able to do.
