Fashion to Suit Your Skin Tone

Choosing fashion for your skin tone

No doubt you already know how important it is to dress for your shape, but do you give any consideration to dressing according to your skin tone?
It’s more important than you might think – wearing the wrong colours for your skin tone can make even the healthiest complexion look sallow or ‘off’, whereas choosing colours that compliment and flatter your skin can really improve your overall look and give you lots more confidence! Fashion is about colour, texture and shape.

Where to start with your skin tone

So where should you start? First, you need to work out whether your skin tone is warm or cool – not sure? Try these tests…

Look at the colour of your veins!

In bright, natural light, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they are mostly blue, then you probably have a cool skin tone, mostly green suggests a warm skin tone. (If you see a mixture, you probably have neutral skin tone – so you’re one of those lucky people who can carry off any colour they like!)

Look at your hair colour.

Your natural hair colour is often a good reflection of your skin tone. Red Heads, Yellow Blondes and lighter brunettes are usually a sign of warm skin tone, while black, silver and ash tones often go hand in hand with cooler skin tone. Still confused? If you’re not sure, head to your nearest make up counter and ask them to help (you may be able to bag yourself a few cosmetics freebies in the process!)

So what does it mean?

Once you know your skin tone, here’s how to apply it to your wardrobe:
Women with warm skin tones, tend to look best in yellow based colours – choose earthy hues: mocha, brown, bronze, peach, ivory, deep greens, through to brick reds and warm oranges.
Those with cool skin tones are better suited to blue based colours, so look for jewel tones such as royal blue, emerald green, plumy purples or vibrant pinks.
Of course there is a certain amount of crossover and we’re not suggesting you should avoid a colour you love purely because of your skin tone, but perhaps give slightly different shades a whirl – you might be impressed with the results!
