          THE RIGHT COLORS TO WEAR FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

We are sure this has happened to you before - you excitedly order a dress online only to find that it looks washed out and completely different on you than it did on the model. To avoid this from happening time and again, here are some tips for you to identify which colors look the best on you based on your skin tone. Keep these tips in mind before you splurge at your favorite store.

Light Skin Tones

If you have a pale complexion, opt for darker shades: these include colors like maroon, navy, emerald-green, and royal purple. The contrast will accentuate your features and brighten up your face.

Wearing pastels and lighter neutral shades is a big no-no if you are on the pale side of the color spectrum. The colors will blend with your skin in an unflattering way and make your skin look washed out. Unfortunately, for the minimalist dressers out there, black and white are also not great. While some amount of contrast works well, black and white provides too much of a contrast, making you look pastier than normal.

Medium Skin Tones

For those of you with warmer olive skin tones, it is a good idea to stick close to wearing warm tones like rich oranges and yellows. If you decide to mix it up and wear cooler colors, try and go for the ones with a warmer undertone. A vibrant turquoise in the blue family or a deep magenta from the purple hues will go a long way.

Try to skip out on the colors that are at the opposite end of the spectrum - especially frosty blues or purples.

Darker Skin Tones

You guys should be thanking your lucky stars that black, white, cool, warm - almost everything works for you! Whether you opt for a mustard summer dress or a cornflower blue pantsuit, you can take comfort in the fact that your wardrobe can be as diverse as your personality. The main color we ask you to stay away from is brown (and to be honest, this should not be hard), because who would want to wear a brown when they could be rocking lapis lazuli?
