If you have black hair, choose colors that match your skin tone.  The cooler your skin, the cooler the colors you can choose.


  • Find colors that can pair with black to liven up a somber look
  • Try navy blue as an alternate to black in suits and formal wear


  • Too. Much. Black.
  • Faded colors that will wash your complexion out
  • Mixing warm or cool colors if your skin tone is the opposite

    I believe we were talking about this topic the last time I saw you. These are great tips! I’m trying to wear less black – really I am. :) But it’s good to know it’s not the end of the world if I do.
