It can be hard enough picking out the right swimsuit silhouette to highlight your natural shape. But the colour? It's more to think about. Of course, when it comes to fashion, there are no hard and fast rules. It’s all about experimenting and having fun. That said, there are some colours that look better on your skin, wherever you may fall on the spectrum.
To save you the decision fatigue, we’re compiled a list of questions to ask yourself the next time you go swimwear shopping.
Very Light Skin with Light Blond or Red Hair
Soft colors tend to work best. If you go with something really bold, you’ll make a statement for sure, but you may end up showing off your pale side. Try soft pinks, blues and beiges. Greens and blacks are hit or miss, depending on the shade and whether your skin is on the warm side or cooler. Redheads tend to look amazing in white (yes, white!) and cobalt blue.
The colors you should avoid are orange and yellow.
The best swimwear colors for fair skin
Your skin is fair and probably your natural hair is blonde or light brown. Sun makes your skin a little pink at the beginning and your tan is light. You cannot be exposed long to sunlight, as you may get sunburnt. You must be very careful with the sun, however at the end of your summer holidays you are visibly tanned.
Choose dark swimwear colors, no matter if it is a bikini or a one-piece. You can chose marine blue, red, emerald green, brown and dark purple. Cold colors will look great while your skin is still very white. Some pastels might be added later, when you get some suntan. For example try pink, coral or blue! Don’t forget about high SPF!
In general, avoid all nude colors. Also white, yellow and orange will make your skin look simply pale. And this is not the effect you want. Avoid flashy and fluorescent colors as they will make your skin look a little pink or even red.
If you have a warm undertones and dark skin
Your skin is the perfect canvas for light colours like baby pink, cream and peach. They bring out your warm glow, and provide the right amount of contrast that pops against your skin.
Pastels will look marvelous on you! Baby blues, minty greens, soft pinks and pale yellows as well as light grey will be your best choices when it comes to choosing swimwear. As for orange, white and brown, unless the suit is the most perfect fitting piece of lycra you’ve ever put on your body, leave it behind in search of most sorbet-oriented colors.
