So when choosing your all-important dress, the predominant factor we need to take into account is your skin tone. On a general basis, we have categorised skin tones as either Warm or Cool. Let's find out which one you are...
How do we define Warm or Cool skin tones?
Warm Skin tones
With that sun-kissed glow vibe, those with warm skin tones have yellow, caramel or olive undertones which give off that slightly or strong golden hue. Think Rihanna, Zendaya, JLo, Beyonce.
Cool Skin tones
Whether you're a regal, melanin-queen or have an angelic, porcelain-doll complexion, those with cool skin tones have very white, rosey undertones or richly-pigmented tones such as dark-brown and black. Think Rooney Mara, Zara Larrson or Lupita Nyongo and Kelly Rowland.
Here are our recommendations for each skin tone:
Having the glowy tinge in Warm Skin tones beautifully compliments stunning, bright colours without looking too garish. A sophisticated look is also achieved by matching with sensual brown and gold shades which accentuate the luscious hues in this skin tone.
Very pale or melanin-rich skin tones are enhanced by pairing with sweet pastel hues or regal colours with shadowy undertones in order to prevent washing out features or clashing detractively. Colours like Gold balance out angelic cooler tones while neutralising the overall look.
