How to match clothes colors with your skin tone part 5

You probably noticed that some colors look more pleasing to others than when you wear them, however, most men do not know why it is that way and how they can change it.

 

A contrast in colors is a key, number 1:

Apart from color, it is also important to look at the contrast. For most people, it pays not to go extreme with the contrast but it is important to maintain some element of it. What I mean by that, for example, if you have a lighter skin tone, it pays to go with a lower contrast. Do not wear a black jacket with a white shirt because that is just too strong. Instead, maybe go with a light blue shirt and a medium gray suit that will flatter your skin tone much more.

A contrast in colors is a key, number 2:

If you are a medium skin tone, you still want to avoid these really high contrast outfits of black and white or navy and white. A navy and a lighter shade of white can work for you. On the other hand, you also do not want to go with pastel tones that are too close to your skin tone because not enough contrast is not flattering either. Apart from that, you can play a lot with contrast. You can, for example, wear a white shirt with maybe a charcoal suit or a gray flannel suit that will still look good at the same time, you can wear a light blue shirt with it and it is less of a contrast but it still looks good. Overall, if you have darker skin tones, you can really wear high contrast outfits. Navy suits, white shirts, that is something that really works for you but definitely avoid pairing a light blue shirt with a light gray suit because it makes you look washed out.
