Take note, ladies!

Wearing colors can be a step outside of our comfort zones. Beyond the neutrals, there's a wide and extensive plethora of shades, tones, and hues that exist, all of which can be daunting to navigate. Of course, there's no denying that when you find the color that flatters you the most, it becomes a lot easier to create a wardrobe that works for you. So below, we created a guide that will help you discover the right colors that will form the nucleus of your closet.

Skin Spectrum

There is a wide range of skin tones out there and it is quite impossible to group colors for all in a single article! So here, we've classified a sampling of common skin colors into three groups: Fair, Medium, Morena.

Skin Undertone Spectrum

To be honest, whether you're fair, medium, or morena, these aren't the only determining factor for the best colors for you. Your skin undertone is another telling sign. Here's how to know if you're cool, neutral, or warm-toned.

Simply flip your wrist and check your veins. If the color of your veins is...

Blue- you are cool-toned;

Green- you are warm-toned (Fun fact: Your veins are still blue; you just see them through yellow skin, and color combinations teach us that yellow + blue = green.);

Hard to distinguish- you are neutral-toned

COOL-TONED

Colors from the cool tones that work for you: Royal blue, Deep blue, Navy, Emerald, Deep purple, Lavender

Colors from the warm tones that work for you: Bright pink, Reds, Reddish pink

Your best neutral: Gray

Colors that are a little hard for you to pull off: Bright oranges and yellows. (If you want to wear such, always look for a version that has a little red in it to tame the hue.)

NEUTRAL-TONED

Colors from the cool tones that work for you: Jade green, Moss green, Pale blues

Colors from the warm tones that work for you: Light peach, Blush tones

Your best neutral: Taupe, Gray

Colors that are a little hard for you to pull off: Anything too bright. (Always go for a softer version of the color, instead.)

WARM-TONED

Colors from the cool tones that work for you: Olive, Turquoise, Magenta, Orchid

Colors from the warm tones that work for you: Oranges, Reds, Golden yellow, Amber

Your best neutral: Taupe, Chocolate, Latte

Colors that are a little hard for you to pull off: Icy shades (It's best to have hints of oranges and reds to balance out the blue undertones of your skin.)
