Colors

 

With a cool skin tone, your best colors are on the cool end of the spectrum and are inspired by both the depths of the ocean and the depths of winter!

  • Bright blues, emeralds and deep purples will look great
  • You'll also look beautiful in frosty shades of lavender, ice blue or pink
  • On the warm side, you can turn to ruby, bright rosy red or super pale yellows
  • With neutrals, you can rock cool gray, bright white and navy
  • Try to avoid orange, tomato red and strong yellows, which can clash with your skin completely

 

With a warm skin tone, your best colors are rich reflections of nature

  • On the warm side of the color wheel, you should turn to red, peach, coral, orange, amber, gold and yellow
  • You also should look great when you wear “warmer” versions of cool colors like olive, moss, orchid and violet-red
  • Neutrals that are best for you include taupe, cappuccino, cream and mushroom gray
  • Avoid chilly colors like icy blues or jewel tones like sapphire or amethyst because they can wash you out and make your skin look gray

And, fortunately, there are some colors that look good on everyone!

  • Pure white goes great with everyone’s skin. If you find a white garment doesn’t look quite right on you, take a look at it in natural light and make sure it doesn’t actually have cool or warm undertones that might not have been as obvious on the rack
  • Light blush pink brightens any skin tone and brings out the natural glow of your face
  • Teal with a perfect mix of blue and green can be worn by anyone and is a great year-round shade
  • If you want to go dark, try eggplant purple, which acts like a neutral and accentuates your skin without overpowering it
  • For a bright look, try a true red. Don’t go too far towards an orange-red, or a blue-red. Stay right in between for the best results
