Tis the season for holiday parties! Whether you’re dressing up for a work gathering or meeting up with the girls for some spiked cider, it’s time to plan your holiday wardrobe for the oncoming party deluge.
One way to look festive and sophisticated this season is by finding the perfect red dress to compliment any event on your social calendar. Red is often considered a cheerful Christmas color and with such variety of red hues, red is a shade that can flatter all skin tones when paired correctly.
Here’s a guide to finding the right shades of red to compliment your skin tone this holiday season.
If you have pink undertones, opt for coral reds or shades of red with a hint of orange. The coral or orange undertones can bring out the warmth in your skin, and downplay any pink in your complexion.
If you have yellow undertones, a coral or brick red colored dress can add warmth to your skin and enhance your natural color.
If you have medium or a bronzed skin tone, most shades of red with work with your coloring. While almost all shades of red will work, true reds, cranberry shades and pink-based reds look especially lovely with medium and olive skin and can be played up well.
To pair nicely with your darker complexion, look for blue-based reds and cool undershades. Fig, dark cherry, dark jam and plum are all great choices that will look best with your rich coloring. Contrary, try to stay away from anything too bright, otherwise the shades will look harsh against your complexion.
