12 Season Color Wheel
So I never really got to experience much of fashion-culture growing up and have just recently begun to give it any focus or attention. I have heard of the rule that "Redheads shouldn't wear pink." and I have seen some people discuss this here on FanPop in terms of Ariel and her pink dress. I have also read many comments debating Aurora's famous "Blue vs. Pink Dress". In those discussions, I heard a talented user on this site, link say things like "She's a Winter." etc. I thought that was so fascinating! I had never heard of this concept before so I decided to look into it. That is how I came across the 12 Season System which is an adaptation of the earlier 4 Season System. Since this was all so new to me and quite complex and nuanced, I had to find as much detailed explanations as I possibly could to understand it. There are two major sites I used and they will be provided for those of you who are interested! :D

The first site: link by Lora Alexander, a licensed esthetician, makeup artist, certified Image Consultant and artist. She put it quite perfectly "Sure, you CAN wear whatever color you want to. But if you want to look YOUR BEST, you’ll want to wear colors that harmonize with your natural coloring. It’s really that simple. Color Analysis is NOT A FAD! In fact, it’s scientific, based on the 1898 color theory by artist and professor Albert Munsell. link Its effects are profound. And it can simplify your life by eliminating bad shopping choices in clothes, makeup, hair color and even jewelry and accessories. Think of the time and money that can be saved!"
I used this site more for the understanding of the color theory itself, it's accuracy and an overall introduction to the seasons and their unique traits.
The second site: link This site was such a "godsend" for me as it helped me so much with understanding the "dominant characteristics" of which I wasn't fully understanding from the 1st site. This cleared up much of the questions I had as it goes into a little more detail about those dominant traits and less into the psychology etc. of the color theory.
I used this site more for the understanding of the dominant traits, more details and how the subtle nuances determine the accuracy of placements.


Obviously this is all very new to me and I am certainly no expert but I did my best after lots of reading on these seasons and dominant traits, to place each Disney Princess in her appropriate season. I would love to hear your guys' opinions, especially from the ones who know all about this stuff! I must say that when I changed some colors on some of the DPs that I felt were not in their right color, it really did make a difference! They suddenly looked more "vibrant" and less "washed out" which is the subtle effect of the colors. [*NOTE: If there is a season not represented by a current official DP then I did my best to find a non-official DP for comparison sake.]

Step 1: Finding Your Dominant Characteristic
"The first step in this seasonal color analysis, is to figure out the first thing you (or anyone) notice about you when you look in the mirror/enter the room." [[*Descriptions provided by earlier mentioned websites with links.]]

Deep: (Strong, rich, dark coloring) If your dominant characteristic is Deep it means people notice your dark hair and dark eyes first. You have the deepest coloring in the analysis. You have a strong, rich coloring. Majority of women of color fall within this group.
Eyes: Black, black-brown, dark auburn, brown, dark green or dark hazel. And in some instances a very deep, dark blue. If you have an eye color other than the ones stated, you are not a deep.
Hair: Black, black-brown, chestnut brown, medium brown, dark auburn. Very deep hair color. If you have salt & pepper hair then you may belong to this season.
Celebrities: Kim Kardashian, Anne Hathaway, Kristin Kreuk, Eva Mendes, Leighton Meester


Light: (Very light and delicate) If your dominant characteristic is Light it means your hair and eyes are light. You have the lightest and most delicate coloring in the seasonal color analysis.
Eyes: Light to medium blue or green. You may also have light hazel to pale brown eyes. Quite the opposite of Deep. [[You are NOT a Light if you have brown eyes. There is another group for people with blonde hair and brown eyes (see: Soft)]]
Hair: Light to medium ash or golden blonde or soft/light auburn. Very light hair in general.
Celebrities: Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts, Taylor Swift, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon


Soft: (Soft, dusty colors; nothing bright and overpowering) If your dominant characteristic is Soft-muted it means your coloring is somewhat neutral - a mix of warm and cool. You can appear light but you have a richer look. Neither Light nor Deep-dark. Often classified as 'mousy'. Many ethnic mixed with light eyes fall within this group.
Eyes: Brown to hazel, grey green, blue grey, clear blue, or a mix of everything.
Hair: Your hair may appear mousy. Golden blonde (strawberry blonde) to medium brown, soft auburn. Medium to deep ash brown. You may have light grey/yellow grey hair.
Celebrities: Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Nicole Richie, Katherine Heigl, Vanessa Williams, Rihanna, Jessica Biel


Clear: (Bright, clear colors, nothing muted or dusty) If your dominant characteristic is Clear it means you have a bright and crisp look to your coloring. Your eyes have a clear color which is intensified with your bright hair. The opposite of Soft. Peaches n' cream look. Your eyes are sparkly and jewel-like and often a total knock-out (see celeb examples and you'll know what I mean).
Eyes: Clear blue, turquoise blue or green, clear green, emerald or sparkly amber/topaz.
Hair: Black, black-brown, medium to dark brown. You may have very bright golden deep blonde or red hair. You may have very golden white-blonde hair.
Celebrities: Megan Fox, Liv Tyler, Courtney Cox, Jenny McCarthy, Heather Graham, Emilie de Ravin, Brittany Snow


Warm: (Yellow based colors, no blue undertones) If your dominant characteristic is Warm it means you have an all-over glow to your coloring. With obvious warm and earthy undertones to your hair, eyes and skin. The majority of classic red-heads fall within this group. Skin tone has more evident warm undertones than cool.
Eyes: Brown, olive green, dark hazel, light hazel, blue.
Hair: Is neither deep or light, has a medium intensity - Light to medium golden brown, medium chestnut, rich and warm red (coppery), auburn, deep golden brown, strawberry blonde
Celebrities: Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Kate Beckinsale, Beyonce, Hilary Duff, Debra Messing, Julianne Moore, Lindsay Lohan.


Cool: (Blue based colors, no yellow or golden undertones) If your dominant characteristic is Cool it means you have an all-over cool look to your coloring. You may appear deep but what sets you apart from the dark-haired (Deep) is your softened, grayish undertones. Many with graying hair fall within this group. Your skin has an obvious grayish, ashy or cool undertone to it. You may have had a warmer coloring when you were younger but it has softened in your aging years.
Hair: Ashy (medium-dark or red) hair, silver ashy blonde or grey/silver mix hair
Eyes: Gray-blue, hazel, softened blue, violet, soft dark brown, charchoal gray.
Celebrities: Liz Hurley, Meryl Streep, Jamie Lee Curtis, Brooke Shields, Jennifer Connelly, Kate Middleton, Elizabeth Taylor



Step 2: Finding Your Secondary Characteristic & Season
Once you’ve determined your dominant characteristic, next decide if the warmer or the cooler colors look best (or medium/light/dark depending on your characteristics). [*Note you need to be able to, or have someone else, be completely objective with which looks better on you, not which you like more or happen to prefer for accuracy.]
You will be either a:

Deep Winter (Cool Colors) or Autumn (Warm Colors);

Light Spring (Warm Colors) or Summer (Cool Colors);

Clear Winter (Cool Colors) or Spring (Warm Colors);

Soft Summer (Cool Colors) or Autumn (Warm Colors);

Warm Autumn (Medium Colors) or Spring (Light Colors);

Cool Winter (Darker Colors) or Summer (Medium Colors)


This is based on the undertone of your coloring. Both of the sites I provided have further coloring tests for those who are more interested. The coloring tests will help you better identify which is your season.
