Why: Color is the watchword for summer, but I have pale skin with olive undertones, and let me tell you, all those pink and yellow dresses look adorable on the hanger… not so much on me.
That’s why I’m so grateful that this summer also has a rainbow of grays to choose from; there’s a shade of gray to flatter every skin tone, even mine. The trick is to find a quality material and a standout cut — whether a form-fitting sheath that makes you look like Marilyn or an edgy design of which Gwen Stefani would approve. This BCBGirls ‘Leanna’ Jersey Dress is dark enough to set off my skin without making me sallow, while the low-cut blouson top means I’ll still stand out in a sea of color.
