What colors are best to wear on my skin tone?

I am a light caramel color, and I'm looking for underwear clothing.


With a light caramel color skin tone, you've got a lot of choices in terms of the underwear you select. To start with, pastel colors look great on light caramel skin, as the color accents the natural beauty of your skin color, while still being light and attractive. White is also a good color, as it will also compliment and enhance your skin tone.

Darker colors have their place too, and of course black goes with everything, but in almost every case a darker color will not enhance the natural beauty of your skin tone as much as pastels will. You can also use printed underwear and bras, but try to choose prints or patterns that incorporate pastels. They will also contribute to enhancing and defining your natural beauty.

Age is also a determining factor in the undergarments a woman chooses to wear. Younger women tend to prefer more fun undergarments, with stripes, or designs, while older women usually like ribbons or stitched decorations on a solid color, or with a stitched pattern. Where you shop will also be a consideration in both the selection of panties and bras, as a small in Victoria's Secret will usually a medium anywhere else.

Some great places you can pick up pastel undergarments are J Crew, J.C. Penny, Macy's, and of course, Victoria's Secret, though they do tend to be a bit more expensive than other stores. Also keep in mind that undergarments with a fabric pattern will sometimes show the outline through thin dresses or pants, even when the color cannot be seen. Because of this, you'll want to make sure you have a good selection of ladies underwear and bras to go with any outfit.
