For neutral hues, opt for navy, tan and cinnamon.

Surprisingly, purple and a full spectrum of blue will look incredible on you too.

Avoid orange and yellow like the plague! However, red can look flattering on you, it’s all about finding the right shade. Fair skinned red-heads should opt for bold crimson, whereas tanned reds should go for softer and more demure red hues.
