There are a lot of ways to personalize your beauty look based on your hair color. From your makeup to your wardrobe, the possibilities are virtually endless. Speaking of the latter, we’re here to talk about coordinating your outfit with your hair color. Taking your strands into consideration can take your personal style from falling flat to supremely flattering.
As far as pairing your wardrobe with your strands goes, you generally have three options: clothes that complement your hair color, clothes that match your hair color, and clothes that perfectly contrast with your hair color. To make finding your fashion match that much easier, we’ve compiled the best clothes for dyed red hair, blonde hair, gray hair, and more! Read on to learn how to pick clothes based on your hair color.
Whether you’re a natural redhead or have dyed red hair, those with red strands will find that shades of green are extremely flattering. This is especially true when picking clothes for dyed red hair—just think about Christmas! A vibrant red mane contrasts perfectly against emerald and olive colors. Other clothing shades that look great on redheads include ivory and earthy tones like beige, brown, and taupe. Blue is also a beautiful option, just stick on the lighter side with shades like aqua as opposed to a deep navy.
The best clothes for blonde hair include those in neutral shades like cream, ivory, and bright white. That’s not to say you can’t play with color, though. You’ll find your blonde strands also look striking when paired against a pastel blouse or orange sundress. Also noteworthy: When it comes to having blonde hair, navy is the new black!
Calling all brunettes—you’re in luck. Those with brown hair will find that they have quite a few options since their strands are so neutral. For your wardrobe, opt for bright, bold hues like royal blue and purple. You can also play with vivid reds, greens, and neutral shades, including brown, black, and charcoal.
As you can probably guess, when it comes to the best clothes for black hair, there is no shortage of options. After all, black may just be the holy grail of staple colors! Since you have the freedom to play with color, go for the bold! Think hot pink, cobalt blue, and true green. You can also get matchy-matchy with your wardrobe by wearing black or creating a stark contrast with white outfits. If you have an undertone to your hair, such as blue black or violet black, consider wearing a color that will emphasize these subtle tones.
Editor’s note: Don’t have an undertone to your hair and think you might want one? It’s an easy hair color to DIY! Use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Deep Blue Black, following the instructions on the box.
It doesn’t matter if you’re naturally gray or have decided to hop on the gray hair color trend, you’ll find curating your wardrobe based on your hair to be rather simple. Since your hair color is ashy and cool in tone, you’ll want to stick to clothes that are similar to this. Look for grays and silvers, as well as cool jewel tones like amethyst and citrine yellow.
If you’re sporting a hair color that’s a bit out-of-the-box, like violet or pastel pink, your best bet is to stick with colors in the same family. This means if you have violet hair, the best clothes for you will be shades of eggplant, lavender, and royal purple. If you have pastel pink hair, turn to shades like hot pink, salmon, and rose. If you’d rather avoid a colored outfit, neutrals are also fair game, so be sure to stock your closet with whites, blacks, and tans!
