These are the tips that you should consider when purchasing a tailored suit according to your skin color:
The best suit’s colors for fair skin tones
When it comes to fair skin men, dark-colored suits are usually the best option. In this sense, colors such as blue, green, purple, or red are perfect for a colorful suit. You can also include them in your dress shirt or tie to complement your look.
Similarly, a tailored suit in beige or brown, being strong colors, is also a great choice to put together a more sophisticated outfit. In contrast, you should never wear yellow. In fact, try to avoid it as much as possible when picking out your suit, and accessories.
As for black and white, they’re also an excellent option for fair-skinned men. Nonetheless, if your complexion is very pale, you should avoid wearing a completely white suit.
Blue is the quintessential color for light-skinned men, as well as all shades in between. Blue can be a companion to dark colors because, on top of highlighting your personality, they provide the elegance you need at any given time.
The best suit’s colors for brown skin tones
It’s true, brown skin has a very particular characteristic besides being a tone that tends to harden our features. As a result, this skin tone is not very friendly to dark-colored suits.
Of course, if you must attend a formal meeting, you should probably wear a tailored black or dark suit. In this case, combine them with lighter colors to relax your features, and in turn, have an air of softness. On the other hand, your choice of colors will depend on the style you want to convey when dressing.
Unlike men with fair skin, you should avoid a brown or beige suit at all costs. The reason is that these colors mimic your skin and can make you look a little dull.
Instead of these colors, pick colors such as turquoise blue, pink, green, or salmon. Yes, I know what you’re thinking “aren’t these colors… too much?” And the truth is that they can be. Because of this, you can just use them in your tie or dress shirt.
The best suit colors for darker skin tones
Dark-skinned men enjoy many advantages over those with light or brown skin. After all, this skin tone goes well with a great variety of colors. Nonetheless, it’s worth noting that some may stand out more than others.
What are these colors? First, white is a color that makes an impact on dark skin. As well as khaki, blue, and a wide range of grays. That’s why if you want to wear a suit in any of these colors, you’ll be making a successful combination.
As for the colors to which you should say no, there are strong blues, browns, and purple. These colors don’t stand out at all in dark skin. Because of this, don’t wear them in dress shirts, ties, and much less in tailored suits.
