Get to know the colors that define black men fashion
While choosing your clothes have everything to do with your body type and your lifestyle, you should also take note of your skin tone. Black men fashion revolves around the many different shades that complement this sexy and color-flexible skin tone.
Step up your fashion game with these style tips!
1. The Blues
Bold colors like cobalt blue and navy blue look absolutely stunning on dark skin. The vibrant hues of blue make your skin tone striking. Notice how even the colors of your hair and eyes are more pronounced in this shade? So, yes, bold colors are the way to go.
2. The Greens
Emerald greens, jade greens, and turquoise make dark skin look like the gem that it is. These jewel tones make your skin look more regal, not to mention, sexier.
3. The Reds
The color red is a pretty controversial color in fashion. It may seem like it looks great on any skin tone, but not really as much as it does on dark skin. So whip out that red suit ’cause you can definitely pull that one off!
4. The Pastels
Your cocoa complexion makes the pastel colors stand out and look more striking. Because pastel colors are contrasting to dark skin tones, these cool hues make you look more fresh and radiant.
