The Right Swimsuit for Your Skin Color
Deep breath, hold your nose, and jump!
Light brown or blond hair with medium-light skin
Go for deep reds and earth tones. Avoid suits in black or dark grey.
Medium-dark skin with dark brown or black hair
Have fun with color! Bright yellows and jewel toned pinks and purples will look marvelous on you. Stay away from muted colors like beige or olive green.
Very light skin and/or freckles with light blond or red hair
Cobalt blue, any shade of green (apart from lime) and, believe it or not you gingers out there, pink are some of your best swimsuit colors. It’s a good idea to avoid orange and yellow.
