The right Color can make or break a look. Be it muted shades or bright ones, every skintone has a couple of colors that makes it pop! Most of us are weary to get out of our comfort zone and experiment with certain colors which we presume doesn’t suit us.
But now it’s time to break out of such preconceived notions and find out which colors are best suited for your skintone.
Read on to find out more:
FOR PALE/FAIR SKIN
Find yourself constantly looking for shade from the summer sun? And do you have pale skin with light features? Then hues that clearly contrast with your skin tone will – quite literally – bring some colour to your complexion. Darker colours like grey, brown, burgundy, bottle green, navy and bolder shades of blue will all work well as these shades contrast with your skin tone. Pastel shades can wash you out, so we recommend you be careful while picking out lighter tints. Powder Blue and Blush Pink can do wonders, but only when paired with bolder bottoms.
FOR OLIVE/MEDIUM SKIN
If you’ve got olive-toned skin that tends to tan rather than toast in the sun, then you have what’s known as a ‘warm’ complexion which suits a much wider spectrum of colours than those with fair skin or ‘cool’ complexions. While most colors suit your complexion, opt mostly for shades that are either a little brighter or darker than the middle ground. Choose pale beige rather than warm sand if you’re opting for light neutrals or try a bolder shade of purple (such as magenta) rather than mauve, for example. Metallics and Neons work well with your complexion as well, so do remember to put it to good use.
FOR DUSKY/DARK SKIN
The colour of your skin is perfectly positioned to marry well with the vast majority of hues and shades, as it doesn’t run the risk of being washed out like comparatively pale skin tones. Contrary to popular believe, you have a licence to wear bold, bright colours like scarlett red, jade green or cobalt blue but be mindful of adding balance to your outfit with a containing colour, which will hold the look together. While black, brown and navy are key colours in anyone’s wardrobe, it’s worth keeping these to a minimum to really make the most of your especially versatile skin tone.
Now that you know which Colors to opt for, it’s time to splurge on some perfect dresses for your beautiful complexion!
