Skin tone meets clothes - find YOUR perfect color

Hello, hotties! I know what you're thinking - "Skin tone and dress color? Did she end up in a beauty section?" No, in today's writing we dive deep into the exciting world of science between skin tone and the perfect clothing color for you!

1. Science is dressed in color: What the research says

Ever wonder why that mustard-colored sweater makes your eyes pop, while your friend looks a little... well, less vibrant in it? This is where science comes into play! Research has shown that certain skin tones have warm or cool undertones, which affects which colors complement your natural glow.

2. Little Miss Tan meets Mr. Frosty

You may have heard of cool and warm undertones? If your veins look more blue, congratulations! You are on the cold side. If they are more towards green, then you have warm undertones. Having trouble deciding? Maybe you have neutral undertones, lucky for you! Then you can rock both sides of the color spectrum.

3. Confessions of a Pastel Lover

Here's a little secret: I, have been in love with pastels since I was little. But here's the catch - not all pastels suit me. I know, shocking! My pale winter skin makes me look like a walking marshmallow in pale pink. But come spring, with a touch of tan, and suddenly I become the Pastel Queen. All this thanks to understanding my skin tone.

4. Which color suits me?

We've all stood in front of the mirror at some point, tried on that new shirt and wondered, "Why do I look like I haven't slept in three days?" or "Wow, I really should wear this color more often!" Let me break it down for you.

Warm undertones: When the sun meets the earth

Materials : Choose natural fibers such as cotton, linen or suede. These materials have a natural warmth and texture that complement warm undertones.
Patterns : Ethnic patterns, traditional prints or even colored blocks with earthy tones work best. Think big geometric shapes and warm colors.
Style : Bohemian, rustic or earthy style. Dresses and shirts with flowing silhouettes, layered looks or details like fringes and tassels.
Accessories : Gold jewellery, leather details or wooden accessories will enhance warm undertones. A rusty orange scarf or a brown leather bag can be the perfect touch.

Cold undertones: When the winter cold bites

Materials : Silk, satin, or shiny synthetic materials. The reflection from these materials amplifies the coolness of your undertone.
Patterns : Think abstract patterns, floating cloud prints, or snowflake patterns. Big, bold and cool color combinations, with a touch of metallic or glittery element.
Style : Minimalistic, futuristic or elegant. Clothes with sharp lines, structured silhouettes and monochrome color palettes.
Accessories : Silver jewelry, transparent or sparkling details. A crisp white bag or cool blue shoes can really make your look pop.

Neutral undertones: The master of balance

Materials : A mixture of both natural and synthetic materials. Denim, knitwear, or mixed textiles work fine.
Pattern : Striped patterns, polka dots or versatile geometric shapes. A mix of both cool and warm color palettes makes you stand out.
Style : Casual chic, urban or modern classic. Clothing with a mix of soft and sharp lines, versatility is key.
Accessories : Both gold and silver, maybe even mixed. A gray scarf, beige belt or neutral shoes can be your go-to choice.

5. So, why bother?

Knowing your best color palette is not just an aesthetic issue. When you wear colors that complement your skin tone, you feel more confident and experience a lift in your mood. It's about wearing clothes that make you feel like the best version of yourself!

A piece in Swedish fashion chronicles

Swedish fashion has always been synonymous with minimalism, functionality and a timeless feel. But if we dig deeper, we realize that it's about self-expression, finding what suits each individual. While trendy patterns and cuts come and go, color remains, weaving stories and moments into our wardrobe.

Understanding the relationship between skin tone and clothing color is a journey of self-discovery, one that we should all take. Because at the end of the day, fashion isn't about fitting in, it's about lighting up.

Thanks for joining me on this colorful journey! May your day be as radiant as your perfect shade! 💃🎨👗
