What colours suit you? Are you warm or cold? The Fenella guide.

We have all thrown on that top or dress in that colour that just totally washes us out. Well us at Fenella thought why not write a quick guide on how to determine what colours suit you the best.

 Also being predominantly a one size fits all brand, each style usually coming in 3-5 different colours instead is sizes (convenient we know). So next time you at the checkout keep this guide might come in handy.

First though you will need make a quick check of the below. Do you have cool or warm undertones?

  • Check your veins, have a look at the inside of your wrist.  Are they blue or greenish? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish they look green it because you’re seeing them through yellow-toned skin (yellow and blue make green) then your warm.

  • Hair and Eye colour, cool people have blue green or grey eyes and blond, brown, or black hair. Warm-toned women usually have brownish, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair.

  • Gold or Silver Jewellery? Cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.

  • Your Skins Response to sunlight. If you are warm you are more likely to go a little red or slightly burn first then develop into a tan. If your cool (sorry here) but your more likely just to burn and devolop into a light tan.

Ok, now if your cool we suggest navy, denim, olives, greens, lavenders and magentas. If your warm we suggest colours like taupe, brown, warm reds and yellow. Now this stuff isn't bible but we think its a great information when you just dont know.
