The Best Swimsuit Colours for Your Skin Tone

Thankfully, we are not going to leave you confused and finding your best colour all by yourself. Follow this guide to get on the right track and make shopping for your elegant plus size swimwear a fun and easy experience.  

There are three major skin tones and each person’s skin tone influences how different colours look on them. We will help you identify them as we go.

  • Warm Skin Tones

A warm skin tone comes with yellow, olive, or green shades. You can test for warm skin tones by looking at your veins. If they are green, you have a warm skin tone. Other indications are your skin burns easily and you look better in silver. Women with warm skin tones often have dark blonde or brown hair.2110SZR.jpg

Plus size swimwear colours that would flatter and suit this skin tone include reds, gold, orange, dark turquoise, moss, olive, olive greens, browns, creamy white, you get the picture.

  • Cool Skin Tone

Regardless of if you have a light or dark skin, when your skin tone is cool, it will have a blue undertone. You automatically favour bright colours. You can test for a cool skin tone by checking for blue veins, if you look good in gold and if you tan easily. Women with cool skin tones often have light blonde hair, dark brown hair, or dark black hair. You would look fabulous in colours like deep purple, light purple, bright blue, sapphire, lavender, shocking pink, royal blue, ruby, and so on. Don’t be scared to go bold on plus size swimwear colours.

  • Neutral Skin Tone

Yes, there are those with a neutral skin tone. Contrary to what you might think, having a neutral skin tone does not mean you can get away with any colour of plus size swimwear. It simply means your undertone matches your skin, making you neither warm nor cold. Women with a neutral skin tone can have blonde or brown hair. Focus on soft or light shades or colours like peach, coral, rose, jade, greys, browns, off-white, and so on.One_Piece_Gathers_Indiana1.jpg

Bonus point – No matter your skin tone, a colour that fits all will always be black!
