Revealed: The Best Colours to Wear for Your Skin Tone
Finding the best colour for your skin tone is a very difficult business. Articles will ask you to compare your skin to a season (are you a spring or a winter?) or even ask you to examine the colour of veins on your wrist. As such, we wanted to cut through the noise and nail down the specific colours that are the most flattering—making getting ready every day (and going shopping for specific items) a breeze.
We looked to some of our favourite A-listers, from Elle Fanning to Lupita Nyong'o, and analysed the colours they've worn on repeat for their outfits in the spotlight in order to compile an easy guide to help you choose which colours suit your skin tone. Scroll through for our easy guide to complementing your skin tone, so you'll never be caught wearing the wrong colour again.
If your skin tone is similar to Olivia Culpo's, consider wearing dove grey similar to this dress colour she's wearing at the Emmy Awards. If you've got lighter skin, opt for a charcoal grey, and if you've got darker skin, a pale grey will look best on you.
