Dusky And Proud: 11 Chic Dresses That’ll Complement Your Skin Tone

Mindy Kaling once said, “I have a thick skin, which comes from being a not-really-skinny, dark-skinned Indian woman. I haven’t fitted in every place, and so I’m kind of used to resistance.” We applaud her outspoken sentiments about being a dusky woman.

Gone are the days when you had to stick to certain colours because you were on the certain side of the shade card. Our dusky beauties are rocking hot pinks and neons to their stylish best! Case in point: The sultry Esha Gupta in this hot pink number!
