One of my school Mom friends recently mentioned that she didn’t think she could wear red or more accurately thought ‘She looked awful in red’. I used to think this for years also until I discovered that there actually is a red that works for me. You see, I have cool summer colouring and I have lots of red in my skin so I have to be careful that I don’t end up looking like a tomato. The mom in question also has summer colouring I suspect, but her colouring is a little lighter than mine so I suspect she is actually a light summer. Her red can be a little warmer than mine, though still from the cool palette. I have compiled a few tips here to help people with light cool colouring to wear more red:
Choose a red with white in it. Think watermelon rather than tomato.
- Wear red with white. This immediately cools it down. Try red/ white stripes.
- Wear red, white and navy together. This combination typically looks really nice on summers.
- Pink reds are great for you.
