Is yellow a colour that any skin tone can wear?

I was always under the impression that only warm skin toned ladies could wear yellow. This is not strictly true though. Apparently, it was decided that cool ladies did not want to wear yellow and so not many blue based yellows were around in the shops. So, in answer to the question is yellow a colour that any skin tone can wear? Yes, it is but you have to get the undertone right.

  • Warm skin tone – If you have a warm skin tone then you need to choose colours with a yellow undertone.
  • Cool skin tone – If you have a cool skin tone then you need to choose colours with a blue undertone.

That is the difference and most of the yellow fabrics in the shops do have this yellow undertone, but you can sometimes find garments with the blue undertone. They are usually the very light shades almost like a baby pastel yellow or primrose.

Now if you are a Cool skin toned lady and want to wear yellow there is a company available on line that markets their garments in the seasons. If you are a cool you will be either a Winter/Summer and if you are warm you will be Spring/Autumn. Kettlewell Colours  state on all their items which season they will suit so, you can be sure that you are buying the correct undertone. Just to confuse the issue some fabrics will have cool and warm tones in them and can be worn by several seasons. They have a sale on now, so it might be worth having a look.

I hope that clarifies how to decide which yellow suits each skin tone. If you are not wearing yellow next to your face you will be able to get away with it. For arguments sake you could  wear a pair of yellow trousers with a top in one of your correct shades of blue and that would work. I would suggest that if you like yellow and are not sure if it suits you why not wear it in your accessories.

Anyone can wear yellow accessories.
