The color coral and shades of rose, hot pink, and fuchsia, add bright touches to your wardrobe palette.
Whether you are looking for figure-flattering clothes or womens fashion accessories, there is sure to be a shade of coral or bold pink that complements your complexion.
Womens skin tones usually are categorized as summer, spring, winter, and fall.
Fall and spring skin tones have hues of peach, golden beige, and golden brown. They are typical of women with brown or dark eyes.
All shades of the coral color and vivid rose, fuchsia, and hot pink are right for you.
Winter and summer skin tones have underlying hues of pink or blue. These are typical of redheads, blonds, and brunettes with light eyes.
You may need to tone down the coral color and vivid shades of pink by wearing something lighter next to your face.
Avoid looking washed out by wearing a white or pale blouse with the color coral for a skirt or fuchsia slacks.
A print dress or jacket in the color coral that is banded in white or a lighter contrasting trim also will mitigate the harsh effect of a strong, vivid color against porcelain skin.
If you love a color but cannot wear it in figure-flattering abundance, use it for accessories that are not near your face, such as shoes and handbag.
You would be surprised at how versatile brightly colored shoes or handbag may be.
The old matchy-matchy rules have been thrown out. Adding a bright and unexpected pop of color may be just what some old outfit needs to be updated for the 21st century.These pack punch when you pair any two of the following:
The days are gone, gone, gone when a woman's hat, gloves, handbag, shoes, and belt were supposed to match.
Do not have more than two accessories in a bold hue such as the color coral or hot pink.
Even one eye-catching bag, scarf, or belt may be enough to update an outfit.
Don't be afraid to use two bright pops -- a pink scarf and a chartreuse handbag, a turquoise bag and red shoes. Just be sure everything else is low-key and coordinated.
