Pretty in Peach

I think that peach is such a wearable color for any skin tone.  You just need to figure out if you need a slightly cooler tone or a warmer tone.  My freckled skin and brown with hints of red hair color look best with a warm tone which means the peach I would choose would lean more towards orange rather than pink.  If you generally look best in cool tones, choose a peach that is more pinkish.  Peach is such a versatile color when it comes to fashion, I think.  It's feminine but subtle, not as in your face as pink.  Pair it with whites and cremes to keep your look really soft and delicate.  Gold toned jewelry makes peach clothing look softer and warm whereas silver toned jewelry makes peach more fresh and pop-y.  Pair a peach colored skirt with a mint colored button down shirt for a bright spring look.  Make a peach outfit a little more edgy by stacking on layers of silver and black bracelets and rings paired with a loose peach top and tight black cigarette pants that hit at the ankle and black ankle boots.

these are all beautiful finds. i'm afraid to reach peach after having to wear it in a wedding as a kid. i looked fairly terrible. it was a rainbow wedding of pastel colors (this was like 1992, mind you) but still, i haven't gotten over it.

things like this make me want to get over it.
