How to choose the perfect colors for your skin tone

An LBD may be your best fashion friend, but sometimes the same color can get a little boring. The next time you're shopping for a dress, whether it be a cocktail dress, party dress or evening gown, choose a color that complements your skin tone so you can really stand out.

 When out shopping, you can determine your ideal color palette by placing your hand next to a desired dress color. The colors should work well together, not contrast. Or to determine whether you'd look better in a warm or cool tone, use the gold and silver test. Put something that's metallic gold near your face in front of a mirror, then do the same with something that's metallic silver. You'll be able to see if your skin has more of a bluish (cool) or yellowish (warm) tint and you can pick colors that complement it.

What do you think? Are these the correct colors on these models?

 Once you find colors that suit you, you don't have to stop wearing colors that may clash with your complexion. Just keep those colors further from your face. If pink doesn't go with your skin tone but you love it anyway, wear a pink purse or some bright pink shoes with a dress in a color that matches your skin tone. You'll be sure to turn heads.
