The Right Beach Colors for Pale Beauties

It seems like beaches were created for bronze beauties. Ladies with fair skin often find it unfair to walk through a sea of tanned bodies. You don’t need to feel ashamed of your complexion if you’re a porcelain princess. Bette Davis, Nicole Kidman, and Anne Hathaway managed to become the most beautiful women in Hollywood without worshiping the sun. The trick to looking great without a tan is picking swimwear in the right color. This guide will teach you how to shine bright without sporting a tan.

Pastels are great if you love bright colors. They will brighten your skin without overpowering your complexion. Most people with fair skin display subtle pink or blue undertones. Soft blues, pinks, greens, and purples will help your skin display a rosy glow. Pastel colors have the potential to look muted if they aren’t worn correctly. You can use a color-blocked ensemble to add some definition to your figure. Pairing a pastel color with a block of dark color will create a flattering look for your figure and complexion.

A Delicate Approach to Dark Colors

Ladies with fair skin have to be extremely careful about dark colors. The contrast between your skin and dark fabrics could make you look more like Morticia Addams than Marilyn Monroe. Dark browns and oranges will highlight the fact that your skin lacks gold pigmeant. Black will create a shocking and unflattering contrast against your pale skin. Jewel tones are the answer. You should wear strong jewel tones instead of dark earth tones. Colors that resemble emeralds, sapphires, and rubies will complimeant your skin.

The Right Way to Wear White

People with light complexions are usually advised to stay away from white bathing suits. White swimsuits tend to make ladies with fair skin look invisible. It is possible to wear a little white without getting totally washed out. A color-blocked swimsuit with white accents can look very fresh and flattering. White should not be the dominant color on a color-blocked swimsuit. White fabric should only cover a small percentage of your bathing suit. A mix of white with pastels or jewel tones is a smart choice.
