It will seem like you already know your skin tone, but sometimes it is complicated if you are in the middle of two tones.

So, if you are sorted out in the skin tone, it becomes easy to avoid or go for some colours. This will help you a lot in choosing the right colours.

Pale or Fair skin

If you are having a pale skin, you are exposed to more burns and freckles. The sun makes your skin burn. So, as far as you are concerned, try to stay away from blacks and whites as blacks will contrast intensely and the whites contrast too little.

Neutrals are your go-to colours. Stack up neutrals in your wardrobe such as navy, olive, grey, khaki/camel, and brown. When going neutral, stick to grey, beige, and navy, which will bring out the colour in you more efficiently.

Light skin

Skin that is light in colour, tans nearly easily without burning. You have a lot of colour options to try, one group to try is the earthy tones.

Colours such as greens, browns, and khakis will aid you in complementing your skin tone. Autumn shades like orange, maroon, and yellow shades have a good effect on the lighter skin tones. They tend to give you the subtle feel, mix them up with black and white, and you can have variety in your colours and clothing.
