Ever wonder what you were thinking when you see a photo of yourself and your skin color looks like a dead fish? Especially when you reallllly love the color.
It can be difficult to know what colors flatter your complexion. And let’s face it; the clothing that we buy (and fall in love with) doesn’t always flatter. (I’m saying this with love.)
Rather than spend hours trying on every color under the rainbow, stick with the tried and true. That’s right. Stop the guesswork. There are four colors that look great on everyone. Yes, everyone – including you.
Eggplant isn’t a very attractive name for a color. However, it is a beautiful color. Purple in general is one of those colors that flatters most. Yet, you know that there are hundreds of different shades of purple and unless you’re Prince, they don’t all work for you. Eggplant purple will. It’s a darker shade of purple with blue overtones.
Red is an energizing color. It’s also, supposedly, attractive to the male gender. It’s also a power color that says, “I mean business and you better pay attention.” But red is also a difficult color to wear for many.
Too blue and it might wash you out. Too orange or yellow and you may look a little peaked. The happy medium is the perfect red and it’s also called “true red.” If you’re unsure, grab three shirts, one that is more blue, one that is more orange, and one that falls in between the two. See what it does for your complexion.
Most shades of blue work for most people. However, teal takes blue to a new level. Yes, it’s a little bold. It’s also calm and soothing. It’s a fun color, and one that you can easily add to your wardrobe.
Teal is a fantastic spring and summer color, but you might be surprised how refreshing it looks during the long cold months of winter. You’ll be like a walking breath of fresh air and yes, teal flatters every skin tone.
Think of rose as a grown up pink. It’s not so soft that it’s passive, yet it’s very feminine and flattering. Rose is a little smokier than standard pink. It’s subtle, beautiful, and easy to wear.
Here’s another great piece of news if you’re looking for colors that flatter your skin tone; all of these colors pair well with navy, grey, black and even brown. So whatever pants or skirt you’re wearing you can rock these four colors with confidence and ease.
Look through your closet, chances are you might already have these four colors that look great on and enhance your skin tone.
