Hey There Bright Eyes-These Are Just For YOU!

Bright colors and pieces with high contrast (houndstooth or dark and light colors together) will always make you shine. You look great in jewel tones. You are radiant in shiny gold and/or shiny silver jewelry.

Today’s picks are for ladies with dark hair and light eyes. There is a high contrast between your hair color and skin tone. In our color analysis system, you would be assigned to the CLEAR color code.

Another fantastic choice for a woman in the Clear Color Code is anything that has high contrast coloring. This structured long vest creates a beautiful silhouette by nipping in at the waist.

4. Houndstooth Scarf

Everyone loves a cozy scarf! This one perfectly mimics the contrast between your hair color and skin tone.  It can be paired with almost anything from jewel tones to solid black or white. Add a little cozy while taking your outfit to the next level. This one is available here.

5. Color Blocking

Right now color blocking is everywhere. Color blocking is just what it sounds like. This is a very figure-flattering style. When done in high contrast like the dress pictured, it can be a stunning look for a woman in the clear color code. Check here for your size.

6. Statement Earrings

We are particularly fond of these white chunky earrings. They are lightweight and stand out terrifically against dark brown and black hair. As you choose your earrings, keep the size in mind. If you have a smaller build, choose a smaller pair and if you have a larger build, go for a larger pair. Or if you want to wear large earrings but have a smaller build, pair it with a smaller necklace or no necklace at all!
