With the arrival of Spring, out comes the sun… and out come your shorts, skirts, tanks, and lower neck lines. But before you bear a little more skin this season, be sure to know the Spring clothing colors “Do’s and Don’ts” in order to best compliment your complexion.
If you and the sun don’t mix, you’re going to want to avoid pastels. Even though they are popular this time of year, pastels will wash your creamy complexion right out! Remember, you want to stand out in your clothes, you don’t want your clothes to stand out on you.
For a flattering contrast, showcase bold, bright shades like our featured spring color, Aquamarine. Aquamarine accentuates a multitude of complexions and can really make your skin color sizzle this time of year.
Still love your pastels? You can always accessorize! Lighter jewelry paired with a bold outfit creates a stunning contrast. Soft, pastel colored shoes add a fresh, feminine touch that embodies spring fashion without drowning out your complexion.
If you’ve already gotten some sun or sport a naturally olive complexion, pastels were made for you! Floral prints are fabulous too and softer, lighter colors make for a luminous, vibrant look.
Your skin’s undertone determines which spring colors bring life to your look. For example, if you have a pink undertone, cooler colors compliment. But if you’re a bit more olive, yellow, or gold, warmer colors wear best.
