Hi, there:
Could you give me another synonym of the term "subdued" of the sentence in order to understand it?
I am reading an article. Also, I found some new terms to me,such as the term "subdued."
I looked it up in a dictionary. However, I still can't grasp it well.
The sentence is The sentence is it didn't fit her relatively subdued , clean-out and preppy American tastes.

Thanks a lot!

    Thanks for your help, panjandrum!
    So I am wondering if the term "subdued" intends to suggest the color is not bright, also the style is not very fashion to native speaker's ear.

    May I have your confirmation?
    Thanks a lot!
