What colors go and don't go with pale skin?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm a Swede (pale skin, blond hair, blue eyes).

 

What colors should a pale person focus on, and what colors should a pale person avoid when it comes to buying clothing and shoes?

I'm not sure if all pale skin is the same. Probably depends how much redness you have. But I am in the same boat and I have to stay away from brown, yellow, most greens (moss, the yellower ones, etc), a lot of beige/cream/off-white shades, and some dull charcoal/greys. Earth tones are not my friend. I know that sounds like a lot, but I've calibrated my senses to recognize immediately when an item makes me look sallow. I've learned to just stick to blue/red/purple/pink/orange/black/white/cool greys/dark charcoals. I see lots of stuff in camel, green, whatever that I love but I move on without thinking twice.

I found this a good read originially

basically avoid dark colors.

but looking at the pics will help understand why.

the dark colors will make the eye gravitate there rather the your face.

its better explained there
