Wear white, pink, gray, baby blue and khaki if you have a dark skin tone. People who have dark skin also tend to have dark hair and eyes. The best colors for this skin tone contrast with dark features in order to brighten the look. The darker your skin, the more bright colors you can wear. Dark shades and tropical colors are not very flattering against dark skin. Keep black, brown and navy blue to a minimum while completely avoiding magenta, turquoise and mint green.
