desperately seeking color

  1. I have had the same problems my entire life being a pale red head. I stayed away from greens because that is what I was told all red heads should wear. (oh yeah I’m a rebel) I think that any shade of blue works, as well as some yellows. Orange if you can handle a soft orange. I also stray away from pinks but only because as a teenager somebody told me I looked like Molly Ringwald. So I don’t wear pink so nobody tells me I look “pretty in Pink” As for you though,mix it up until you find things that you think you look good in.

  2. Blue-light and dark, grey, green, brown, cream (because you’re not too pale cheeked) Black if you wear your hair up and make sure to do your eye makeup!

  3. I have red/blonde hair and I stick with earthy tones A LOT… in fact, I used to be told that I never wore ‘color’ because you could always see me in brown, black, green, or grey. lol… So I started putting on a pink scarf everynow and then. It has to have green or brown in it, but when you find the right pink scarf, it will change your world! What else? Everynow and again I switch my black or brown with white. And I get compliments all day long. lol… and stripy socks. I love stripy socks! They never match my outfit (I would hate that) but they never clash either, and it gives just a punch drunk bit of color that you can flash people with every now and again. What else??? I love what the poster above said about turquoise… it might work for you. It has to be a super vibrant blue to work for me. Oh, and this year, I added in dark purple. lol… I know I know… same color tones… but it is a different color! And it may just be a bit of change you are looking for.I honestly feel that if I change my base colors, because I am SO pale, it makes me look dead. That isn’t a look I am going for. So I like to bring in bits of color instead of shirts full of color. A dark purple tank top under a black shirt. A pink scarf. A pair of purple, gray, and blue striped socks with said purple and black tank combo and pink scarf with my black pants, and brown jackets… it works. Love Val

  4. Green is so easy when you’re a redhead, isn’t it?Warm orange-reds are some of my favorites. Or a warm burgandy. Deep yellows and bright greens, and warmish navy blues too. In summer I find I can get away with turquoise and pink, but not in winter. Also some creams and browns might feel a bit lighter.

  5. I’ll try to help ya out a bit :)I think that Turquoise looks really lovely , it is a vibrant color and will add warmth to your skin toneI’ve seen pictures of Miranda Hobbes in this color and it looks great You should wear colors that you love and feel happy in 🙂
