How To Choose The Right Lehenga Colour For Your Skin Tone? #ThatPerfectLehengaColour

How To Choose The Right Lehenga Colour For Your Skin Tone? #ThatPerfectLehengaColour

That standard red wedding lehenga is a thing of the past. When you have so many more options nowadays, how are you going to select the right coloured lehenga for your skin tone?
Now of course, you can do what you want and rock a neon lehenga if that’s your favourite colour. But if you’d really like to know what flatters you the best, keep scrolling!

FAIR SKIN

Girls with very fair skin are in luck because they can flaunt lots of colours and look great in them. Though, extremely fair skin tends to have cooler undertones which means cool colours look better on you.
For pinks, you can try pastel pink, neon pink, deep pink. Mint, peach, orange-red, maroon are some other colours to check out. All blues look good on you! So do neon colours. Oh, and a rich golden!
However, avoid colours that are simply too contrasting like deep brown. Also avoid beige/cream as it’ll make you look washed out.

BEIGE

This is for the girls with fair skin and warm undertones. Warm colours in shades of yellow, orange, red look fabulous on you. Our favs are a bright haldi yellow, rust orange, tomato-red and maroon.
A bright but not light green or blue is also a good option. Think along the lines of royal blue/ emerald green
Avoid neon colours as it doesn’t flatter your skin tone. Also refrain from beige/dull gold as it makes you look washed out and doesn’t really stand out.

OLIVE SKIN

Burnt orange, rust orange, a ruby red – these look great on you.
You can also carry off deep tones like a darker emerald green or midnight blue.
Deep pink, magenta or wines are all good choices.
Nude and neutral shades work well; example: chocolate brown looks good on you, though you’d do well to pair it with gold tones.
Avoid neon colours at all costs.

DARK SKIN

Dark skinned Indian girls usually have warm skin tones so it’s best to stick to warm colours. Though, you can beautifully pull off some colours like pastel pink, dust/powder pink or pastel purple/lilac. Deep pink is another option to try.
Golden looks greeaat on you! Rose gold is a fav. Beige/nudes/neutrals look good because they do not look washed out but stand out on your skin.
For red, tones like maroon look good.
For blues and greens, try out darker shades of them.
Avoid colours are that are far too bright like neons. Though, if you really like a neon lehenga, pare it with a pastel blouse and you’re good to go.
