Clothing Colors for Your Undertone

So this is the next post in my undertones series! If you missed the first one about finding your undertone, you can check that out here, and if you missed the second one on finding your season, you can check that out here. This post is going to be talking about the colors in clothes that are known to compliment each coloring. These colors are just suggestions. You are by no means obligated to stick entirely to these colors, I definitely don’t. I personally wear colors that are on my colorings ‘avoid’ list. The point in knowing this, is that when shopping and dressing yourself, you can look for colors that are really going to brighten your skin and eyes. You can use it in small doses like a scarf, or you can go full out and dress head to toe in these colors.

Once again, these are just suggestions. If you don’t like them and you prefer one color over another, then definitely go for what you love. Fashion is about expressing yourself, and there aren’t any rules.
