Summer is already here and we are all waiting for the season sale to buy women dresses online. One of the key things to keep in mind is the colour of the dress you pick. It should not only flatter your skin tone but also be season appropriate to make you look you best. So, here is our guide to help you pick the best colours for summer this year.
White has been a classic summer staple for ages now and for good reasons. The soothing colour is very summer appropriate as white is great at reflecting the summer sunshine keeping you cool. So one of the pick a cotton, strappy dress in white which has an A-line cut to achieve a girly hourglass shape or go for a gorgeous white figure hugging bodycon dress in white to show off your summer body. White maxi dresses also scream of summer. Get them in light and flowing fabrics like georgette or chiffon and you’re ready for a brunch with friends or a dinner date by the beach. Prints on white pop much better than other colours and look great. So, rock a dress with floral prints or polka dots or stripes this summer.
The colour suits every Indian skintone. If you are on the lighter side of the skin tone spectrum, then white give you a very muted look almost blending into your own skin tone. Whereas, if you have darker brown skin tone then it just makes your rich colour pop making you look absolutely stunning.
Blue is a very cooling colour to our eyes transcending us to the aquatic cools of the seas and oceans which make it a perfect colour for the sultry Indian summers. There are a variety of shades in blue that you can choose from. You can pick a bright, sky blue bodycon dress in crepe or a flowing turquoise A-line dress or dark, navy ladies casual shirts to wear at work. Blue nautical stripes are a great print to don in summers and beach vacations.
While choosing a colour for your skin tone you should ideally try to create contrast by pairing it with a contrasting colour so your skin tone pops. So if you are a lighter skin tone, go for darker shades of blue like midnight blue, dusk blue or navy blue. However, if you are darker then go for lighter shades of blue.
Orange is a beautiful, bold and bright colour just perfect for summers. This effervescent and citrusy colour looks like a burst of freshness on a hot summer day. You can celebrate this bright colour in its full glory in a beautiful lacy and feminine dress in a bright shade of orange or poppy red. But if you want a more subtle approach then go for a coral coloured A-line dress. Coral, which is mix of pink and orange, is a more subtle appropriate approach to the bold colour which works very well on warm Indian skin tones.
