Swim and Skin, is it THAT Important?
Let’s face it, we all buy swimwear. It can be easy to pick out which pieces are our favorite style or most flattering to our body shape, but have we ever considered which colors complement our skin tone best, giving us that extra radiant sunkissed glow?
In the fashion world, there are no rules. Its all about exploring and experimenting with different trends and ideas all while letting our creative imagination flow. But when showing off some extra skin in our vacation best, it can be smart to consider which colors we should either gravitate towards or stray away from depending on our color and undertone of our skin.
The first step we can take in having the perfect swimwear for our skin in determining our undertone; cool, warm, or neutral. A simple way we can do this without being an expert or beauty guru is by looking at the veins on our underarm. Are they blue? Then you have a cool undertone. Look a little greenish? Then warm it is! If there is a mixture of both colors, lucky you! Your skin tone is neutral and you can side with both ends of the spectrum.
The goal is to choose which colors contrast your skin tone, yet complement your undertone.
