Finding your personal style celebrates your identity, highlights your best parts, and makes you feel confident. But it's not something that happens overnight. Finding your own individual style is very important to embrace yourself. When it comes to styling, various aspects, moods, and tricks can help you bring the best out of your style quotient.
So, if you want to know how to dress to express your unique style, you're at the right place. Here are some important considerations to help you to find your style.
Know Your Undertones
The first step to discovering your distinctive style is finding your skin undertones. Just what is a skin undertone? They're the natural colors or tint on the surface of your skin. This color helps you choose your complementing unique style. Various undertones look good with different colored jewelry, makeup, and shades of clothes.
There are three types of undertones:
Warm Undertone: This undertone has shades varies from peach to yellow and golden
Cool Undertone: This type of undertone fall under include pink and bluish hues
Neutral Undertone: It means your undertone is similar to your actual skin tone.
How to Find your Undertone
Check your veins: Look closley at the skin around your wrists, neck, and other areas. If it appears greenish, congrat! You have a warm undertone. If it looks blue or purplish-looking, you've inherited cool undertones. And veins that look blue-green, then you've got neutral undertones.
Another way to find your undertone is assess jewelry on you. What color of metal makes you sparkle? Does gold look exceptional on you or is it a miss? Does silver look lackluster or makes you look like a superstar? Well, this is another great way to find what looks best because these colors complement different undertones. For example, warm undertones look great with yellow-gold jewelry. In comparison, cooler undertones go well with silver, platinum, and rose gold.
If you're still not sure, there's one more test. It's called the white t-shirt experiment: Wear a stark white t-shirt in natural daylight. If your skin appears pink or rosy by comparison, you have a cool undertone. In case your face looks more yellow, you have a warm undertone. And lastly, you have a neutral undertone if you look the same in stark white and off-white.
How to Choose Colors Based on Undertones?
Here are the best colors of clothes, makeup, hair dyes, and other accessories that go best with three different undertones:
Clothes: Warm undertones go best with warm colors like green, brown, mustard yellow, and warm reds.
Makeup: If you have a warm undertone, your foundation should match as well. So choose shades on the warm side, like nudes and beiges. Likewise cool foundation look best if you have a cool undertone.
Hair color: For hair color, try opposite colors. For example, go for warm colors like amber, blonde, etc., for a cool undertone. In comparison, warm undertones can go with cool colors.
Discover Your Body Shape
Discovering your body shape is very important to find your perfect personal style. For example, you want to dress to bring out the best out of your pretty curves. Likewise, if there's something you don't want attention drawn too, silhouettes, draping, and playing with proportions are all things you can play with too. And that's ok.
