Which Colors Look Best with Warm and Cool Skin Tones?

If you were to come to my house and fling open the door to my closet, you’d find a sea of turquoise and an expanse of coral. Regardkess of the garment, every piece of resort wear I don in these colors makes my eyes pop, my hair shine, and my skin glow.

And it’s not just my opinion. There's a science behind color, and it applies to all of us. Try a test for yourself:

Hold a piece of silver jewelry up to your face and study the result. Next, hold a piece of gold jewelry up to your face. Now compare the two. Which color makes your skin look more alive and vibrant?

People with cool undertones in their skin usually look better in cool jewel tones – this means that they look better in silver, pale corals, and pale turquoise. Individuals with warm undertones, on the other hand, come to life next to gold, deeper turquoise, and richer coral, as well as stones set in gold.

Turquoise is a bit of a chameleon, as it can be both cool or warm, depending on the depth of color. Because turquoise is a combination of blue (a cool tone) and yellow (a warm tone), it looks good on everyone, no matter their skin tone. The same is true for coral.

Want to prove this theory for yourself? Check out our Anthony's Resort Wear collection. We have so many different warm weather beach vacation clothing options in bright colors that can help you look and feel your best at a resort. Wearing vibrant color is part of our Florida resort lifestyle -- we want to look as bright and sunny as our paradise. That's why Anthony's women's fashion is so colorful.


Pull on the incredibly comfortable Krazy Larry White Floral Pull-On Ankle Pant and get ready to glow. The coral and turquoise accents can’t help but add a summery sheen to your skin.
