Let’s talk about what looks best with your skin color.
Color and complexion are pretty important topics we haven’t discussed much here.
This seems to be monumentally important to the ladies when they apply makeup, which makes sense when you’re basically coloring your face.
I doubt guys give it much thought; to be honest, I hardly do either. But if you’re spending time picking out some nice clothes to wear, why not take that extra step to pick colors that look best with your skin tone?
There are plenty of ways to determine the optimal color palette for your skin tone, but it really doesn’t have to be .

It’s important to experiment
Admittedly, color is a hard thing to get EXACTLY right, and luckily for dudes, it doesn’t matter that much. Just do your best.
There’s a good chance you may not have the exact coloring of any of these examples, and so some color suggestions won’t apply to you. Or perhaps they’ll all apply to you… who knows.
For example, you may have olive skin but see a color under a different list that you like. Go for it! Try it out; it will probably look just fine on you.
This list isn’t scientifically proven, so use it as a general guideline, and deviate when necessary. Remember that none of this is set in stone with no exceptions; it’s important for you to try stuff and see what looks good on you.
Some things to remember off the bat: If you have a lighter, paler complexion, avoid stark black and white. If you have a medium complexion, the primary and bold colors will suit you well. If you’re a darker skin tone, you have more freedom with whites and pastels than most.
Assuming you can remember those basic rules, you’ll be good, but let’s see if we can dig a bit deeper.
Dress for your skin tone
Try to avoid: Really striking or primary colors. Also, too much deep, dark color can wash you out. Stay away from all black or all
Try to avoid: White and black, pastels, any kind of faded color. These don’t work well with your skin .
Try to avoid: Earthy tones and washed out colors; these don’t do anything for you.
thou royal blue is a beautiful color which makes you stand out, I have always admired it on others but never had the courage to try it till I rocked this outfit . I must say royal blue is my new thingy and it was a bingo !!!!
I was invited to introduce a chairperson for the launch of a magazine that portrays our Ghanaian cultural values . I decided to settle on the color blue since it was an evening event . I love my outfit and will always want to wear it over again .
