Prom Dresses by the Season
If you’re looking for the perfect prom dress in Dallas, Texas, Elegancia Formal Wear has a lot of designs to choose from. And one key to finding the dreamiest dress design is finding the right prom dress color for your skin tone—you know, that most flattering shade that will make you glow in the dress
Knowing which color goes with your complexion can be a little tricky if you don’t know where to start. Well, the first step is knowing your skin tone. While there are some established, binary guides to check if you have cool undertones or warm undertones, we want to go with the more comprehensive skin tone guide with the seasons, which divide skin colors into four: spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
Spring is characterized by warm undertones, with skin complexions varying from ivory, peach, or beige, and varying light and golden hair colors and hazel, green, or blue eyes. Recommended colors for spring are brown, aqua, blue, navy, dark green, mint green, yellow, lavender, violet, hot pink, and coral.
