How to Choose the Colors to Wear

Nov 25, 2007
Choosing particular colors to wear according to your skin and hair color will make you wardrobe much more attractive.


Keep It Shining

It is wonderful to be a blond! There is a radiating sunniness about you that has an undeniable drawing power, whether your hair is flaxen, a bright gold, or the shadowy tone of maple sugar.

Your Color List

Thoughtfully experiment with "your" colors in order to find those which will not only blend with your skin and enhance your eyes, but will also brighten your hair. Here is a list of possibilities: blue; blue-green; green-blue (from light to dark); blue-violet (from pale to deep periwinkle); subdued red-violet and red-orange; brown (such as cocoa, cinnamon and maple); lustrous black; bluish gray; brilliant red (if your skin is clear and fresh).

AVOID orange; yellow (brighter than your hair); intense blue (which pales your eyes); cerise and brilliant fuchsia (which quarrel with your hair); vivid colors (which overwhelm your own pastel coloring). If your hair is a dark blond aid your skin pale or sallow, choose soft neutral colors and reject beige and tan. Black is usually too heavy for you, and yellow-green is always an unfortunate choice.

White - Gray

Turning Gray

Regardless of the flattering remarks comforting friends may make, hair at the mixed stage (without enough white to make it an even gray), is trying!

Many of the colors you wore before your hair turned will still be becoming to you in darker, more neutralized versions. Try dark shades of gray, green, blue-green, red and - unless your skin is yellow - blue and blue-violet. If your skin is fresh, lighter tones may be worn.

For a warm complexion, light and medium-warm colors such as peach, rust, henna and red, may be excellent; however, they should be soft - not vivid. Be careful with black, tan, beige, brown, yellow, yellow-green, and all "muddy" tones. AVOID black and white mixtures, and prints in several hues. This combination tends to emphasize the mixed color of your hair.


Colors for the Cool Brunette

If you have brown hair and eyes and a rather fair, pinkish skin, you have a mixture of warm and cool coloring. You will find the following colors very becoming: red and red-orange (subdued); pinkish grey; bright, medium and dark blue; fuchsia and other shades of red-violet; rich brown; black; and, warm off-white. AVOID: vivid light blue and green; muddy beige; pale grey.

If you are a brunette with blue or grey eyes, white skin and dark hair, colors such as green, blue-green, blue and blue-violet are your best choices. You can also wear mauve, fuchsia and American Beauty. Crimson and other shades of red tinged with blue, black, white and grey are very flattering to you. AVOID: beige; orange; and, yellow-red.

Betwixt And Between

The Colors You Wear

Fortunately you are able to wear some "cool" and some "warm" colors, and for this reason have a very wide and interesting color range from which to choose - - limited only by the quality of your skin! Here is your list of suggested colors: dark blue-green; medium gray-green; navy; soft gray-blue; aqua; turquoise; lavender; red-brown; dull orange white; pale yellow; dull gold; and, subdued red.

Not every color will be becoming, but you will find several which will not only enhance the color of your hair and eyes but will, at the same time, give life to your hair. AVOID: overpowering colors; tan, beige and muddy brown (near that of your hair coloring).

Now that you know your most flattering colors, dressing in the best clothes for you will become easy.
