Colours and Seasons for Men of Magnetic Style

Colour analysis is an important part of getting your style right. Men don’t do cosmetics and accessorise (Dandies and Queens aside), so getting your colours right is crucial to making the right impression with your wardrobe. A black suit looks the goods on a Winter but guys with a lighter complexion won’t do it justice. The Summer male does best with light colours, light fabrics and colours with a lower contrast.  The Autumn guy can wear colours that are fiery, earthy and natural, whereas Spring should be bright and sunny, typically colours that match your eyes.

Women love feminine colours on men. Get it right and your world will change, regardless of which gender or rank you are trying to impress. Your colour style can be as bold as a brightly coloured jacket, or as subtle as the stripe in a tie. People will see something in you that they just can’t put their finger on. 

Sizemikk provides a handy feature that matches search results with your season. Much has been written about what determines your season but generally it is dependent upon the colours of your eyes, hair and skin tone and how they blend or contrast.

In its simplest form, there are four seasons. Some experts work to sixteen, while the 12 season colour palette, used by most Colour Analysts, provides Cool/Light, Deep/Soft and Warm/Clear variations within each season.

But for now, we’ll keep it simple. Use the table below to work out your colour season.


Light Hair: blonde, light brown, light red
Light eyes: blue, green, hazelSkin: Fair & light

Low/soft contrast between eyes, skin and hair.
