Can be a a huge stress to get what blends with your skin. Most of us know that we could stand to win a few style points by trying hues outside our style a go, but — like finding the right haircut for your face shape — selecting the right color that work with your skin complexion is often easier said than done.


Fair/Pale Skin

Just because you’re pale doesn’t mean you can’t wear some nice colours. When you look at the runways for the men’s fashion weeks you can see that some of the models look slightly sun-deprived. I know that we all can’t afford luxury brands, but what we can take from this is that you can easily team some great colours with your skin tone, “I’d recommend basing your outfit around darker colours, which you can combine with lighter colours,” will all work well as these shades contrast with your skin tone.

Key Colours:

  • Grey
  • Burgundy
  • Green (varying shades)

Colours To Avoid

Given that, in the wrong lighting at least, you could be mistaken for a cadaver, you’ll want to avoid soft, pastel shades or bright colours as these will only wash you out further. The same goes for neutrals too; so rather than white, light beige or stone, choose richer shades such as sand, camel, khaki and slate grey.

“This doesn’t mean you can’t express yourself through colour. It just means you have to mix light colours with dark ones,”

Olive/Medium Skin

If you’ve got olive-toned skin that tends to tan rather than toast in the sun, then you have what’s known as a ‘warm’ complexion, which suits a much wider spectrum of colours than those with fair skin or ‘cool’ complexions.

Colours To Wear

While most colours will work with a medium skin tone, you can ensure you look your best by opting for shades that are either a little brighter or darker than the middle ground.

What does that mean exactly? Choose pale beige rather than warm sand if you’re opting for light neutrals, or try a bolder shade of purple (such as magenta) rather than mauve, for example see items here.

Colours To Avoid

Since your skin will likely have yellow or green undertones, it’s wise to avoid wearing shades of these colours that are too close to your skin tone.

What you’re trying to avoid here is ending up looking nude i.e. having your skin blend in with your clothing. colors you should probably give the heave-ho include pistachio, mustard, olive and mocha brown.

For trickier looks like all-white or pastels-on-pastels, make sure you’re tanned enough (closer to black rather than green olive, if you will) to carry it off without looking washed out.

Darker Skin

Much like those with medium skin, when it comes to finding colours that suit you, guys with darker skin have won the genetic lottery and can try their hand at pretty much any hue without much need for trepidation.

Colours To Wear

The world, gentlemen, truly is your oyster. The colour of your skin is perfectly positioned to marry well with the vast majority of hues and shades, as it doesn’t run the risk of being washed out like comparatively pale skin tones.

In practice, that means not spinning the colour wheel like a mad decorator who just spent half an hour huffing chemicals in a paint shop, but choosing a single pop of colour or two that complement rather than compete with each other.

Brown is pretty much a no go area. Much like how pastel shades wash out paler skin tones, brown won’t contrast clearly enough with your skin, resulting in your look ‘bleeding’ into your skin.

While black and navy are two key colours in any man’s wardrobe (making up the majority of formal and corporate wear), it’s worth keeping these to a minimum to really make the most of your especially versatile skin tone.

“Personally, I don’t subscribe to a colour chart that dictates how you should dress based on your skin tone”. “Style is, and always has been, about self-expression, and I always advise my clients that if there is a colour you like, go and wear it with confidence. That said, it’s worth being mindful of colours that work together.”
