Do you know which colours suit your skin tone?

Every man has, at some point, been told by their partner to get rid of an item of clothing because the colour didn’t suit them. You probably aren’t aware of why that colour doesn’t look good on you because skin tone is one of the most overlooked things about your appearance. Here’s a guide on which colours will suit you.

Finding out your skin tone

Skin tones can be categorised as cool, warm and neutral. A cool undertone will be red, blue or pink. Warm is peach, golden or yellow and neutral is the mix of both undertones. To find out your skin tone, look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they’re blue or green, that means your skin tone is cool. Green veins depict warm toned skin. So now you know how to find out your skin tone, you can find colours to suit you.

Cool skin tone colours

If you discover you have a cool undertone, you want to stick to colours like greens, blues and purples. Anything that has a base of blue will suit you.


Warm colours

For warmer skin tones, you want to stick to colours like yellows, oranges, reds and browns. Stick to colours that have a yellow undertone if you want to wear cooler colours such as green. Farah menswear has a great range of clothing in colours to suit every skin tone. You can see the full collection of Farah from EJ Menswear on their website.

Neutral colours

The beauty of having a neutral skin tone is that you can wear most colours. The perfect colours for warm and cool skin tones are also the perfect colours for you as well. There’s no end of colours that will look great on you.

The most important thing to consider when you look for colours to suit your skin tone is that it does take experimentation to get it right. It takes time to fully understand your skin tone because there are so many variations. No matter what your skin tone, there will always be certain colours that will look better on you than others. There’s definitely a feeling you will get when you know you’ve found your signature colour and that’s a gut instinct you can trust.
