Notice how in the photos above that Denise Richards looks washed out (so she’s gone and got a serious spray tan, then packed on the makeup with a trowel) in the silver dressed, and that if you do the blink test (shut your eyes, then open them and notice what you see first), that the dress draws attention away from her face, vs in the gold dress on the right she looks much fresher and brighter and her face is what you want to look at.
We mostly wear metals as jewellery, glasses frames and sometimes in shoes, but sometimes when they’re in fashion metallic garments are also something we might think about choosing. As far as jewellery goes, it’s a small proportion of what you’re wearing, so the metal isn’t as important, but for glasses frames and any metallic garments, the metal colour you choose becomes much more important. Particularly as metallics are shiny and reflect more onto the skin than matte colours, so can be more draining if you get it wrong.
If you have cool colouring, you’ll find that silver, pewter and rose gold are your better metallic options.
If you have warm colouring then choose gold, rose gold, copper or bronze.
