6 Colors That Suit The Dark Skinned Women

Suddenly it seems that the world sat up and started taking notice of how beautiful certain color tones look against dark skin. Though there are major parts in the world- where the fetish towards white skin is rampant, the power of dark is slowly rising. In this light, it’s really important for the lovely dark-skinned ladies to know- what tints to include in their fashion closets.

The following 6 color ideas go supremely well with dark skin-


White on dark? It might have sounded pretty outrageous 10 years back, but not anymore. White looks exceptionally well against dark skin tone- be it a white lace gown, white sheath dress or white top. So if you are dark-skinned Fashionista, then don’t think twice before including pristine white pieces in your fashion wardrobe. Why not going for LWDs (that little-white-dress for you!) in various cuts? All in all, next time wear that white button down paired with jeans in a heartbeat.


Conventionally, red used to be color worn- only by fair skinned girls. But ladies, don’t you think it’s the time to change the wheel? Fiery red against glossy dark skin looks sensuous, mysterious and fierce. But do keep it in mind that don’t go over-board with the color ‘red’ as then- it will look tacky on you. Just the right amount of red with minimal makeup and bare-minimum accessories will make you look head-swooning. And please, don’t forget to wear that attitude also!


Bright yellow, lemon or tangerine- all of these colours belong to the citrus family and they look simply amazing against dark skin tone. Throw away those boring grey, beige or cream outfits from your closet and replace them with eye-popping orange sheath dresses, yellow tops or lemon shirts. Even in case of trousers also, you can wear these colours in a heartbeat. There are still many dusky women out there who feel apprehensive to wear these gorgeous shades for the fear of backlash or taunting from the friends. Don’t do this to yourself; rather, be confident and paint the town orange or yellow or lemon (whatever you want!).

Cobalt blue

Leave that royal blue or navy blue for the pale skinned ones. Go and embrace the enigma of cobalt blue with all your heart. World-wide a red carpet favourite, there is something magical between the merge of cobalt blue with dusky skin tone.


Mauve is another regal color that will look rich and classy on your dark skin. But like red, you need to adjust the color mauve also. Going overboard with fussy hair do or loud make-up can bring down your look.

Teal green

Teal green is elegant and out-of-the-box. If you wear teal green on your dress and attend a party, be very sure that you will stand out amidst the crowd and that too in a good way! The breath-taking combination of teal green and dark skin tone is quite sexy in a mysterious way. Subdued make-up, a good hair style and simple accessory can make you the dark goddess of the do.

Leading fashion designers will vouch that these colours will look great even on dark skinned people. Feel free to experiment and accessorise to complete the look! After all, fashion is what you create!
