Finding The Right Abaya For Your Skin Tone


Although colour is a matter of personal preference, till knowing your skin tone will help you find colours that will complement your skin colour. Choosing colours that will not match your skin can make you look dull and even sick.

If you are tired of picking out abayas that just don't seem to flatter your complexion, then you should make an attempt to maintain a steady rotation of colours that work well with your complexion. 

In this blog, we will guide you how to choose the colour of abayas after identifying your skin tone.

How to Recognise Your Skin Tone?

Our skin tone can be categorised as warm tone, cool tone, neutral tone. Your skin complexion is determined by your skin tone. Checking the colour of your veins is an easy way to determine whether you have cool or warm undertones. 

If the veins on the wrist are mainly blue and purple, then you have cool undertone. 

If the veins on the wrist are a mix of warm and cool, then your skin tone is neutral.

Mostly green veins on the wrist indicates warm skin tone.

Warm undertones can be accentuated with earthy hues like olive or peach, while cool skin tones can shine in navy or jewel-toned clothing. If you have a neutral skin type, consider experimenting with colours that harmonize well with your natural complexion. 

Abayas for Cool Skin Tones

If you have cool skin tone you can include blue, lavender, rose, olive, and grey colour.

Silver, platinum, or white gold jewellery look best on you.

Abayas for Warm Skin Tones

If you have warm skin tone you use natural colours like honey, olive, coral, and cream.

Avoid icy blues or jewel tones because they can mot harmonize with your skin tone and make your skin look grey.

Abayas for Neutral Skin Tones

Neutral skin has a brown and fair colour texture. The colours that look best on you includes royal blue, jade, red, and white. 

Stay away from super bright colours oversaturated colours like neon.

Abayas for Fair Skin

Pastels and jewel tones work best in fair skin tone. White or beige shades make your skin duller you can try jade green or emerald, blush pink, and light. 

Abayas for Medium Fair Skin

Dressing for Light Tan Skin

If you want to dress up with full confidence and style, then you have to understand your skin tone. If you have a light tan complexion, complement it with warm hues like peach, coral, and khaki while avoiding harsh pastels and cool blues. Experimenting with neutrals such as beige or brown is also vital in finding what works best for you.

Dressing for Dark Tan Skin

Dressing for dark tan skin can be a challenge, but there are plenty of options when it comes to finding the right colours for your wardrobe. Experiment with different shades of warm undertones like peach and navy blue to find what works best for you. You can choose floral printed abayas to enhance the richness of your complexion. 

Colours for All Skin Tones?

Abayas are not about colour they are modest wear. Before choosing any colour be consider if the abaya can completely cover your skin. However, determining your undertone can help you choose the perfect shades for your wardrobe.
