Discover Your Perfect Palette: Tips for Finding Which Colors Suit You Best

Choosing the right colors can be a daunting task, but fear not! In this post, we'll go over some tips on how to determine which colors suit you best.


Get to know your skin tone

First and foremost, it's important to know your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone, colors like red, yellow, and orange will complement you well. On the other hand, if you have a cool skin tone, colors like blue, green, and purple will be your best bet.

If you're unsure about your skin tone, you can always consult with the Color Vision team to help determine it. A typical test is to check the color of your bloodveins at the wrist. Blue veins indicate a cool skintone with red undertone. A warmer skintone is characterized by green veins. 

Hair and eye color

Another factor to consider is your hair and eye color. For example, if you have blonde hair and blue eyes, pastel colors like baby pink and light blue will look great on you. Try OSSICLE Off-shoulder quilted mikado gown or MIA Mikado dress in Eloquent Blue.

If you have brown eyes and dark hair, jewel tones like emerald and sapphire will be more flattering. FAYE wool knit dress in Captivating Green will be a perfect fit.

Choosing color by occasion

It's also important to consider the occasion when choosing colors. If you're attending a formal event, classic colors like black and navy will always be appropriate. If you're going for a statement look, brighter colors like yellow and pink will add some fun to your outfit. Remember that the fabric also plays a part in deciding, like the MIA Mikado Dress which is suited for formal occasions but yet in a upbeat pink!

Lastly, don't be afraid to experiment with different colors and combinations! Fashion is all about expressing yourself and trying new things. You never know, you might find a new favorite color that you never considered before.

Choosing the right colors to suit you is all about understanding your skin tone, hair and eye color, and the occasion. By following these tips and being open to trying new things, you'll be able to find the perfect colors to make you look and feel your best.
