With the weather cooling down, scarves are in and are among the top fashion trends for the fall and winter months of 2013. But, choosing a scarf is easier said than done. How do you choose a scarf color?
Do you go with the latest color in fashion? Maybe you want to go with a long pink scarf, but is it right for your skin tone? Is a bold red scarf too daring?
When choosing a scarf, it’s essential to understand that your skin tone is equally as important to consider as choosing the color combination for your outfit. Not all colors work well for everyone’s skin tone. To determine whether or not a scarf color will work with your skin tone, there’s a simple trick you can use.
In a well lighted area, you want to lay your hand on top of the scarf with your palm facing up. As you place your hand on the scarf, you’ll notice the color of your palm change. If the color of your palm dulls when placed over a certain color, move on to a different scarf because it won’t complement your skin tone. But, if your palm brightens up or intensifies, you know you’ve found a match.
To test if a scarf matches your facial tones, such as your eyes or hair, simply look in a mirror and hold it up to your face. If it appears dull, move on to another scarf, but if your face brightens, you’ve found a hit.
Now that you have a scarf that goes well with your skin tone, you need to find an outfit that will work well with the scarf. For example, if you want to wear a navy blue scarf outfit, there are some things you need to consider. Usually, navy blue is for daytime wear, so if you’re heading out for a night on the town, you’ll need to pick another shade of blue. Typically, powered blues are for summer, while royal blues provide you with a more corporate look. Too understand how colors work, do a little research to help you determine which shade will give you the best look possible.
Now that you know how to choose a scarf color, you’ll have no problem finding a great accessory for your outfit, no matter the occasion. And don’t worry, it’s ok to be a little daring and go with the red scarf for a hot look you’ll love.
