As I promised in the last article “How to Wear White”, we go on with white and the other types of skin pigmentation, intense and contrasting pigmentation. These are also categorized by the undertone of the skin, which can be warm or hot. For these types of pigmentation, white as well as pastel colors are best emphasized by contrasting colors, dark and shiny.
1. Intense and warm pigmentation
Avoid wearing outfits that are completely pale and cold because your traits won’t be emphasized and your skin will seem dull. My advice is to add to your outfits colors that have in their composition yellow. Moreover, if white has in its composition yellow it becomes ivory and can be combined with olive, rust, squash, candy and evergreen.
2. Intense and cold pigmentation
It’s preferable to avoid warm shades of white and colors with a strong warm undertone. Cold white, with blue undertone it’s the most suitable, especially if you decide to combine it with other colors, which can be teal blue, plum, raspberry and fuchsia.
3. Contrasting and warm pigmentation
For this pigmentation, contrasting and warm, we will choose warm shades such as milk-white, butter and ivory, which can have a slight shade of peach or golden and can be combined with chocolate, navy blue and moss green.
4. Contrasting and cold pigmentation
Here we choose from a palette of cold shades, with the cold blue undertone and preferably combined with contrasting colors. Pale white, light grey, pearl grey and white cyclamen, all these can be combined with colors like violet, fuchsia, blue lavender, mint green.
As you already know, I made some illustrations so that you can easily identify the category of skin tones you fit into. I hope you enjoyed my tips regarding white. Until next time when we’ll talk about the association of clothing colors for different types of pigmentation.
