The Most Flattering Colors to Wear

Did you know there is an entire color family that looks amazing on everyone? Yes, everyone.

It's jewel tones! You already know these are my all time favorite colors. From my home to my car and my closet, I just love jewel tones. Jewel tones are universally flattering! They look INCREDIBLE on camera and I promise you can pull them off. Yes, you! These rich, saturated colors are complimentary for every skin tone and hair color. ALL. OF. THEM.

Will you be so bold with me? I'll show you how.


Nothing says rich like emerald green. Green represents new beginnings and growth, renewal and abundance. Rock this elegant shade anyway you can – jewelry, accessories, or through your clothing. This color is especially awesome if you are a redhead.


Blue represents the sky and the sea and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. It represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdown, confidence, stability, faith, and intelligence. This color looks amazing on everyone and clearly has a lot to say. And pair it with a red lip for a super classic feel.


The ultimate stunner shade. Red says passion and energy. It radiates a strength and power and motivates us to take action. You're going to stand out from the crowd in this color. A deep ruby is the best option if you are lost on which shade of red is perfect for you.


The richest of the jewel tones, royal purple. Purple enlightens, inspires, uplifts, and encourages us. It brings up feelings of trust and reliability and even an air of mystery. It's associated with creativity and the realm of fantasy. Get this color anyway you can! It looks so luxurious on camera too.
