Blue is a calming, peaceful and tranquil color. There are numerous shades of blue, from light, baby blues, to bright, electric blues, to bold, royal blues, through to dark blues, such as navy. There are also variations on the standard blue color, such as turquoise, which combines both blue and green. Brighter blues suit ladies with medium to dark skin tones, whilst lighter blues, deep blues, such as royal blue, and darker blues, such as navy, look great on all shades of skin! Blue is best suited to ladies with a cooler skin tone (i.e. skin with a pink or blue undertone). Turquoise is an unusual color in that it looks great on all skin types and tones!
Blue is a safe choice for any occasion, but more interesting to the eye than other neutral colors like black and white. If you have beautiful blue eyes, a gown in a similar shade will highlight them and make them shine.
Ladies with warmer skin tones (i.e. skin that has yellow undertones), may find blue doesn’t suit them as well as other colors do. If this is you, and you still want to wear blue, try a turquoise shade instead.
