Dressing right for your skin tone!
In the fashion world, there is a very strong focus on the seasonal colors and little about how to wear a color that suits you and brings out your best. Finding the right color for your skin tone is serious business and that's why I am sharing an easy guide to complimenting your skin tone, so you’ll never be caught wearing the wrong color again.
There are three main color types: Light-skinned, Medium-Skinned and Dark-skinned.
How to determine your skin tone? Easy.
The easiest way to tell is to look at the color of your skin is by looking at the color of your veins.
If your veins appear to be blue, you are light-skinned.
If it appear to be purple, you are medium-skinned.
If it appear to be green, you are dark-skinned.
If you have a mix of two colors (For ex.: blue/green), then you are in between tones and you can probably dress from both tones.
