1. Tones Of Blue

Yes, blues are the colours to look out for. Ace it like Anushka Manchanda and go bold with blue. From denims to pretty pastel-ish blues, they can really make you look fab and bring out the colour of your skin. Try to opt for shades of blue that are toned out as bright, cobalt blues may make you look washed out.

2. Love For Red!
Red is a universal colour, it suits every skin tone. But here’s something you probably didn’t know, red is the colour custom made for the dusky girl and who better than PC to show you that! You can try a variety of different reds, from deep ones to the ones with orange mixed in it. Oh, and you definitely need some fabulous red lipsticks in your stash to light up your face in an instant.

Greens are a great way to make your skin glow. A sequined, embellished green dress is a great colour to add to your wardrobe! A stunning shade like a teal green will look beautiful on you to wear for every occasion.

4. Blingy Golds

This beautiful colour is worth experimenting with! If you think wearing a foil gold colour is not for you, try a shade of dull gold or a rose gold for a muted effect. If you’re still wary of looking too OTT, then try pairing it with separates…as a skirt, or as a top or jacket.

5. Gunmetal Greys

Instead of silver, gunmetal greys look better on dusky skin. They’re the right mix between silver and black, and are not too bold and not too dull either. You can look really sharp in a gun metalled dress, a pleated skirt or even a glitzy top!

6. Jet Blacks

Of course, black is a universal colour that looks pretty much great on everyone. But the trick to looking great in black is to style it with different fabrics. Mix nets, chiffons and fabrics like leather together in one look. That’s a great trick to make black look bold and sexy.

7. Hot Pink!

Yes, if you think it’s too bright for your skin tone then it’s time to unlearn that little fashion tip. Hot pink looks beautiful on duskier skin and you can never, ever go wrong with it! If you’re not used to wearing the shade, try it in accents- in your jewellery, as a separate or even when you layer your clothes.

8. Dark Red Wine!

A wine coloured red, marsala or even a deep maroon will complement dusky skin really well. Who better than this diva to show you how good this looks? Wine shades are dark, non-blingy and really in the right colour family that will look superb on dusky girls.

9. Aubergine Purples

Purple is a lovely colour, but as dusky skin tends to have warmer undertone, it’s better to try a deeper colour of the same shade. So instead of trying lavendar, try an aubergine that has a little red mixed in it.

10. Wonderful Whites

Yes, ladies! You can totally wear an all white outfit and look ravishing in it. Just know which fabric to try it in. We suggest you stay away from stark white in fabrics such as lycra and polyester but try them in chiffon, linen and cotton. You can try off-white or slightly beige whites as well.
