Understanding colour theory

The first step at figuring out what flatters you is understanding your tone and undertone.

This knowledge allows you to choose shades that either flawlessly match your natural skin colour, enhancing your overall look with a cohesive appearance, or intentionally contrast with it to create a striking effect. 

The tone of skin, often referred to as "skin tone," is the surface colour of the skin, which varies from person to person. 

It is determined largely by the amount and type of melanin, the pigment in the skin, along with haemoglobin and carotene.

Skin tones can range widely from very light (fair) to very dark (deep), with a spectrum of shades in between, including medium, olive, and dark. 

Why Knowing Your Skin Tone and Undertone Matters

Complement Your Natural Colour: Choosing pantyhose that complements your skin tone can make your legs look smoother, more uniform, and elongated, enhancing your natural beauty.

Create Desired Effects: Whether you're aiming for a subtle enhancement or a bold fashion statement, understanding your undertone can guide you in selecting pantyhose colours that achieve your desired effect.

Determining Your Skin Tone and Undertone

  1. Check Your Veins: Look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. If they appear blue or purple, you likely have a cool undertone. If they seem green, you have a warm undertone. If it's hard to distinguish, you may have a neutral undertone.
  1. Consider How Your Skin Reacts to the Sun: Does your skin tan easily and rarely burn? You might have a warm or neutral undertone. If you burn easily, chances are you have a cool undertone.
  1. Jewellery Test: If silver jewellery complements your skin better, you likely have a cool undertone. If gold jewellery looks better, you have a warm undertone. If both metals look good, you may have a neutral undertone.

Suggested Colour Ranges for Each Undertone

Once you have understood colour theory it's time to apply it.

Warm undertones

If you have warm or golden undertones some bold colours you should try are turquoise, coral and bright yellow. Pastels will also pop on your skin tone.
