Many believe in the notion that any and every colour suits only the fair complexion. If you too are one of those, then let us assure you that you will soon be proven wrong. Read to know how brides with a dusky complexion can carry almost any colour with panache when worn right.
Red is a brides' favourite when it comes to Indian weddings. But if you thought that only fair-skinned girls look pretty in red, think again. With the correct shade, fabric and silhouette, red can make you look like a diva in no time. Just make sure that you don’t pick too earthy, deep red shades, like maroon, brick or burgundy. Crimson, vermillion, scarlet, etc. are the brighter and warmer versions that will accentuate your skin tone.
Almost all girls love pink. So why not have it for your wedding outfits? No, you need not have a peaches-and-cream complexion to do that!
