The key to knowing what colors look best on you is to understand your undertone.
There are only two undertones: warm and cool. Warm skin has a yellow or orange tint, while cool skin is tinted blue or pale pink. People with cool undertones tend to burn more easily in the sun, while people with warm undertones tend to get darker tans.
Next to consider is your skin’s shade. You will want to find clothes that have a contrast, so if you have light skin, you should favor darker colors in your clothes. While if you have darker skin, you may go in the opposite direction with lighter colors.
Last, it is a good idea to choose tops that match your eye color, as they can make your eyes pop a little more.
