What to Wear For Your Skin Complexion

What to Wear For Your Skin Complexion

Whether you’re pale, olive or dark-skinned, knowing which colours suit you best will never do you wrong. Complementing your complexion is just one of the first steps in determining your fashion choices, so read on to see what you should start filling your wardrobe with! For easier reference, let’s look to the girls in our very own Shoppr community!

Skin Complexion: Fair

Skin Complexion: Fair

If you have a fair complexion, cool colours are your go-tos! If you’re opting for a lighter shade, pastels are a great choice. They won’t wash you out, but actually elevate your skin colour. While many will discourage you from wearing more white, we think it’s okay if you throw on a darker piece to even it out. For darker shades, a deep blue or purple will serve as a pretty contrast. Try a nice pastel dress or a burgundy skirt for that office lunch tomorrow, maybe?

Skin Complexion: Olive

SkiSkin Complexion: Olive

For those with olive skin tone, earthy colours fit you the best! Go for brown (yes, brown on brown looks amazing), green, or even a nude shade: they’ll highlight your complexion really well. Don’t be afraid to wear that dark green dress or a nude brown top, we promise you won’t be disappointed.

Skin Complexion: Dark

#unfairandlovely indeed! If you’re under this category, you can play with both warm and cool colours. A range of red, purple, yellow and pink in your closet will serve you well. Another bonus: white looks great on you too. Since there’s a huge variety of palettes you can play around with, you can have fun mixing and matching around as you please. However, darker shades may overpower your complexion, so throw in something bright to balance it out!

Keep in mind that this is just a simple guide. If you have olive skin but love cool colours, go right ahead! Ultimately, you do you.
