A great fit is just the beginning.
Our tailors have an in-depth knowledge of color theory which aids in choosing fabrics for suits, shirts, and accessories based on your skin, eye, and hair color. As you are building your perfect wardrobe, consult a tailor to determine which colors compliment you the best.
First, find out your “tone”.
If you have a “warm” tone, your skin has deeper undertones of gold and yellow with visible veins appearing greenish. A “cool” tone means your skin is pale or dark with pink or blue undertones and the veins will normally look blueish.
Cooler tones = look for cooler colors
Warm tones = look for warmer colors
The best fabric colors for you also depend on your hair and eye color. Make sure to take these into consideration when looking for clothes.
Light or pale skin can have either pink or blue undertones. Your best colors to wear: cool colors such as blues and greens, blush pink, and some medium jeweled tones will complement the skin nicely such as sea green and lavender. Off-white, beige, and light to medium brown act as great neutrals.
Light-medium skin has more neutral undertones: not exactly warm, and not exactly cool. These individuals can get away with softer, pastel colors and light neutrals. Avoid dark and overly vibrant colors as this will create too much of a contrast against the skin.
Medium skin tones have yellow, peach, and olive undertones. Your best colors to wear: oranges, warm golden yellows, and reds look rich against this skin. Dark blues also pair well. Earth tones can be nice, but make sure to stay away from the colors that are too close to your undertone. For example, if you have olive undertones, its best to stay away from an olive-colored shirt or pant.
Dark skin tones can have yellow, red, or blue undertones: Depending on your tone, these are some colors to wear that always look great on this skin: rich jewel tones such as emerald and violet, and dark navy and grey.
