Most people who have light colouring don’t suit black. It’s just too dark and harsh on their complexion and it wears you, rather that you wearing the colour. But so many people still want to wear it, so here is a quick tip to make it less draining on you.
- Think about the fabric – it needs to be light in its weight and the way it reflects the light. A floaty and sheer fabric is much more forgiving than a dense or heavy fabric.
- Look at the black – is it a really solid or dense black? Is it more like charcoal? The less ‘black’ it is, the easier it is to wear.
- Move the black away from your face with a lower neckline, or a lighter colour closer to your face. Ideally have a medium colour included in your colour scheme so it’s not just a light and dark scheme as I discussed here.
