I used to think I could not wear yellow or orange, since I’m a fair skinned brunette. After deciding to attend Oklahoma State University I knew I had to find a way to make orange work for me, since OSU’s main color is orange. Luckily I have learned some tricks to make wearing orange and even yellow work for me. Now when summer rolls around, I am all about the warm, bright colors I used to worry I couldn’t wear.

  1. Add an accent color for accessories: I never realized it, but turquoise and yellow/orange really compliment each other. I love to add turquoise accessories near my face to help make these colors look better on me. Also, adding navy or even white helps tone the warmness down.
  2. Self tanner: I try to not get too much real sun, since I know how hard it is on your skin. Self tanner has become my go-to, especially for wearing warm colors. I love Jergen’s self tanner  for my full body and I love Sally Hansen for my legs.
  3. Bright lipstick: Adding a bright pink lipstick definitely helps make warm colors work for me
  4. Finding The Proper Shade: I have learned that oranges with more coral work better for me. I have also found that muted shades work better for me as well.

Also, on another note how is summer already almost over?

    Such a cute dress! I have fair skin too and struggle with some of the brighter colors washing me out unless I get the right shade.

    that yellow looks great on you! I loathe yellow for myself, but hubby says it doesn’t look bad on me. This is great for summer too, with how hot it’s been!

    Thanks for the great tips Courtney! I like yellow but i guess was not conscious so much about it clashing with skin tone. But the turquoise earrings look great with your dress! A bright lipstick is good too and fun to wear. Yes Summer is coming to a close quickly. How has it been spending it in Birmingham ? I am sure its still an adjustment . Getting involved in new groups will be a help im sure . I am here to support you in your new city and state, thake care Dear, hugs, Terri xo.
