I'm trying to add in more color to my wardrobe, but how do I know which ones will look best on me?
Understanding the color wheel is an important piece in your closet puzzle. We’ve heard it before, “Are you warm or cool?” Translation: Which colors work best with your skin tone, hair & eye color. Sounds overwhelming, right? So we made it easy with our skim-friendly cheat sheet to find the colors that look best on you.
A quick checklist to determine if you’re cool-toned.
- You have lighter hair (light brown, natural blonde).
- You have grey or blue eyes.
- Your skin tone is fair or pale.
- You have pink skin undertones.
Best colors to wear with cool undertones
Take your inspiration from the cool end of the spectrum. Think: sky blues, cobalt, frosty purples, emerald greens, light grassy tones and anything pastel. If you like to wear warmer colors, try lipstick reds or super-pale yellows. Avoid palettes that are too orange or bright yellow—they’ll overpower you.
