Colour for Coloured Girls

For us pigmented girls it pays to experiment with colour- bold colours look amazing on darker skin and its a simple way to make a statement!

Take this stunning example of the newly (and I hope healthily) transformed Jennifer Hudson:

Why it works:

Warm Yellow Dress– she used a warm tone, bold yellow to compliment her skin tone (a light/pale yellow would have been unflattering)
Red/Coral lips – the perfect accent colour, and it’s just enough colour so as not to take away from the yellow dress
Nude Shoes – also the perfect way to balance out the yellow dress and red lips
V-Neck – is most flattering for a top-heavy figure
Here are some examples of other girls of colour successfully adorning colour!

Freida Pinto

Sofia Vergara
