In spite of the changing fashion trends, the trick remains in selecting colors that best complement your personality. So, how would one know which colors to wear? How does one co-ordinate them? Here are some fashion tips to select the most appropriate combinations.
Colors that Suit You Best
That gorgeous red dress you have seen in the shop window may not really suit your body shape or skin tone. Picking up something that only looks good in the display is a common fashion blunder. Here's how to avoid such fashion faux pas.
Based on Skin Tones

If your skin tone is pale or fair, you would need to wear bold or solid colors to bring out more depth in your overall look. Light shades tend to make you look slightly paler, and may not always complement you.

If you really love wearing pastel shades such as light blue or light pink, you can team them with lowers of a dark shade, for a sharp contrast.

Yet, do not go overboard with bright colors, to avoid having harsh contrasts. You can wear toned down shades of red, orange, yellow, and purple.

You must wear shades that complement your skin and hair color.
Therefore, avoid shades on the darker side, such as dark brown, magenta, dark pink, and black. If it's a must to wear these, remember to use them in minimum proportions.

Based on Seasons
The various seasons can dictate a person's mood. There are certain shades, which look best for particular seasons.

Create new looks with different silhouettes and shades, and team it up with a dazzling smile! This way, you are bound to make heads turn.
