Wear Colours Closer To Your Skin Tone

It is an expert style tip to wear your attires closer to your skin tone. Colours like brown, dark green or plum colours look too good on dusky toned people. If you keenly notice the style books of your favourite celebrities with sexy style books, they mostly go for colours closer to the skin tones.


White Is Not Your Thing? Not Really!

We are talking about colours closer to dusky complexion but that does not say that white would never look good on dusky skinned people. At least our favourite style icons from across the world do no teach us that. Look at all the dusky celebrities we look forward to, they look so perfect in style. How? Just know how exactly to pair them.


Cream Can Be Your Favourite Colour

Cream brightens up the skin tone of dusky people and this colour has been rocked by various dusky skinned celebrities. This look of Deepika Padukone's for her movie "Finding Fanny" shows how the shade of cream has made her look brighter and more beautiful. If you have dusky skin, you are bound to have some good outfits from this shade of colour. It is really quintessential, you know?


Camouflage Prints Can Really Be Your Forte

Who doesn't look good in camouflage printed attires? We all do! But, did you know that this is one print that makes dusky skin toned people look hotter than their original looks? Trust us on this, as it is one print that can suit dusky toned people in their best possible way.


Avoid Extremely Bright Colours

Brighter colours tend to make you look bad if you have darker skin tones. For example, colours like yellow or turquoise can totally make you look dull or even pale. So, the advice is that you can choose to wear dark colours but try to avoid extremely bright colours, mainly during the daytime.


Choose Stripes Wisely

Stripes tend to look ‘not so classy' while it is worn by dusky people? Well, we do not agree! We would say, wear stripes on dark colours than on light colours. You can get stripes on dark colours for mainly your casuals and they look brighter than stripes on light colours. Fair or wheatish skin toned people tend to look better in light coloured stripes than dark coloured ones.
