How To Wear A Colour That Flatters You

Has anyone else noticed that every blogger seems to wear neutral tones? 

Here I am in my neutral tone home, wearing my neutral tone outfit, with my neutral tone dog. 

Truth is not everyone looks good in neutral tones. It can make a gal look sick. As someone that loves me some neutral tones–I get the appeal! But I also don’t like looking sick. 

I am sure a little extra blush can make any gal look a little healthier… But why not wear colours that suit you? 

I did a little research so you don’t have to! 

There are three categories of colour tone…

Warm.

Cool.

Neutral.

You may be able to wear all three! However, if you don’t want to walk around and have people ask you if you are sick… let me enlighten you with colour. 

Warm Tones:

Your hair color: Ranges from dark brown to dark blonde hair.

 Your go-to colors in the warm color family: Oranges, reds, golden yellow, amber, honey gold.

 Your go-to colors in the cool color family: Warmer greens and blues, like olive, deeper turquoise, green moss, fern, pesto, red-purples (think: magenta and orchid shades).

 Your neutrals: Taupe, hot chocolate, creamy whites, winter wheat, latte.

 Colors that are tough for you: Icy shades, jeweled tones (amethyst, sapphire, ruby).

Cool Tones:

 Your skin tone: Has a bluish undertone. It can also range from very fair to very dark.

 Your go-to colors in the warm color family: Shocking pick (versus hot pink, which is warm), cerise, ruby, bright rose.

 Your neutrals: Gray, navy, pristine white.

Neutral Tones:

Your hair color: It is a combination of colors—blonde with ashy streaks or brown with warmer tones.

 Your eye color: Is hazel (most neutrals have hazel eyes, because it changes depending on what color they wear).

 Your skin tone: Hard to determine—you can’t tell if you’re warm or cool.

 Your go-to colors: Neutral colors that fall in the middle of the color spectrum. Look for light peach, dusty pinks, soft rose, peony pink (blush-toned pinks look best for neutrals), placid blue, jade green, cameo green.

 Colors that are tough for you: Anything too bright or vibrant that can overwhelm, reds and yellows (if you do a yellow, try a soft version, like cornsilk or buff).

 Your neutrals: Taupes, grays, off-whites (like vanilla).

I will be fully transparent–I copied this info from InStyle. I am SORRY! Truth is I am mucho busy–but wanted to help a sister out. 

Girl–just because you like to look like you live on a cloud–doesn’t mean you should be dressing in the same colour!
