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 o 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 rosa dress. I have also read many commenti debating Aurora's famous "Blue vs. rosa 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 te who are interested! :D

The first site: link da Lora Alexander, a licensed esthetician, makeup artist, certified Image Consultant and artist. She put it quite perfectly "Sure, te CAN wear whatever color te want to. But if te want to look YOUR BEST, you’ll want to wear colori 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 da artist and professor Albert Munsell. link Its effects are profound. And it can simplify your life da 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 più for the understanding of the color theory itself, it's accuracy and an complessivamente, generale introduction to the seasons and their unique traits.
The secondo 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 domande I had as it goes into a little più detail about those dominant traits and less into the psychology etc. of the color theory.
I used this site più for the understanding of the dominant traits, più 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 Leggere on these seasons and dominant traits, to place each Disney Princess in her appropriate season. I would Amore to hear your guys' opinions, especially from the ones who know all about this stuff! I must say that when I changed some colori on some of the DPs that I felt were not in their right color, it really did make a difference! They suddenly looked più "vibrant" and less "washed out" which is the subtle effect of the colors. [*NOTE: If there is a season not represented da a current official DP then I did my best to find a non-official DP for comparison sake.]

You will be either a:
