When to Wear Orange and Coral
Orange is a bright, social color. When you wear it, heads turn in your direction and positive vibes follow you. That makes it perfect for high-energy gatherings like birthday bashes and outdoor concerts. Wear orange during a night out with the girls to play your role as the life of the party.
Coral clothes are a little more subdued and girly, though they still send out the same high-energy, positive attitude. Substitute coral clothing in more formal settings, like in your work wardrobe, during sunday brunch, or during a cocktail party or network event. Coral in your outfit, whether it be a coral dress, a shirt with coral stripes, or a coral scarf as an accent, will put subtle smiles on the faces of those around you.
How to Match Orange and Coral to Your Skin Tone
You may have heard that only certain skin tones can pull off orange clothing. That's plainly false. Any woman can wear orange if she wants to. The key is figuring out which shade of orange or coral works best with your skin tone, and shopping for those.
People who have cool skin tones look better in oranges that do not have any pink undertones. Go for oranges with yellow in them, and you can pull off bright or faded orange as you please. Coral is more difficult, because it is, in essence, an orange-pink hybrid color. However, what you want to look for with coral is a coral that seems to have a bit of blue in it. Corals that are cooler, slightly gray, or faded will look better on a cool skin tone. Keep the color light, too. Don't go for any bright corals because they'll clash with your naturally cool skin.
If you have a warm skin tone, you want to enhance that warmth with oranges that have pinks or reds mixed in. If your warm skin is darker, then you can pull off the most vibrant, bright oranges and corals flawlessly. For fairer warm-skinned women, tone down the brightness a little but keep those oranges vibrant. Try a lighter shade, almost like vibrant peach, to bring out the warmth in your skin.
