Supposedly, everyone is to limit the number of different colors in her/his wardrobe to no more than half a dozen. He/she is supposed to pick the right colors to complement his/her skin color and tone. Simplisticity is the key. It is better to have just a few single-color clothing pieces and then creatively match them up than to have too many multi-colored or patterned clothes.

So, my question is: what colors generally complement Asian skin colors and tones the best?

Let's start off with the general and go into the specifics. We'll also deal with the minor differences in Asian skin colors and skin tones.

I think black goes well with pale Asians.

I remember seeing this Japanese drama, and there was this very handsome Japanese guy who looked pretty good adorned in black.

Asian Skin tones vary....

I think Asian Girls look good in pink.. the black hair goes well with the pink as well as dyed hair because it usually has a tint of red in it...

I personally like to wear Dark colors like Brown, Black, and Red..

Same here. beerchug.gif

Skin tones does vary. Sometimes, the color itself plays a role with vision along your skin plus the color of hair is something. Plain green can show more of your oliveness while of course, dark colors makes you appear thinner.

For mainly dark hair and brown eyes, what seems to be the best(not that it matters..but if you like this color coordination stuff ): bold, vivid primary colors in clothing. Black, true white, blue reds, royal blues, fuchsia, lemon yellow, hot pink and blue greens.

I don't like to wear clothes that are really dark or really light. I prefer dark blues, brown or tan shirts, tan khakis, and o yeah white shirts are okay.

I am probably medium complected for an Asian and black hair.
I wear black, maroon, light pink, wine, some red but not orange-red, white, (I think white looks good if your skin is more tan, the contrast). But mostly I wear black and pink outfits. (pink shirt, black pants/skirts)
I don't think blue looks good on me except denim, and I don't do orange, green, and yellow either.

I have an olive complexion and I like to wear green and blue a lot. I think they look ok with my skin.

Black goes really well. I think that really pretty shimmery green eyeshadow goes well with dark brown/black eyes. That's not to do with skin tone, but eye color.
