1. Dress In Light Tones

Your light blonde or white hair is probably one of the first features that people notice about you. The best way to compliment this attribute is to dress in colors that  flatter your skin, hair and eye color. Clothes in lighter shades of blue, pink and purple are extra flattering on you. This cardigan is a great staple for your color code. When you wear black as a color by itself, it will be overpowering for you. It can cause the appearance of dark shadows under your eyes and make your skin appear sallow. When you wear black, always wear it with white or another color.

2. Jewelry

With your light blonde hair, bright and sparkly jewelry will draw attention to your face. You can wear shiny gold or shiny silver jewelry.  These earrings are perfect for you.  Keep your jewelry in proportion to your frame size. If you have a small frame, pick smaller jewelry, and if you have a larger frame, choose more substantial pieces. 

3. Makeup

Lighter toned makeup is amazing on you! Unless you are trying to make a statement, dark make-up will overwhelm your light coloring. Eyeshadow is best in nude to light colors, including light grays and shades of pink. When you wear black eyeliner balance it with a light lipstick or lip gloss and natural looking blush. This butter gloss shade in `Eclair would be beautiful on you. Every single color of this butter gloss is  yummy sounding!

4. Anyone Can Wear A Scarf

…But choose a color that will make you shine! If you choose an olive green scarf it will cause your skin to look yellow and tired. Choose a scarf in a pastel blue color and it will brighten your complexion and draw attention to your eyes. Not all scarves are for all women. If you look in the mirror and see the scarf before any other piece of your outfit, it is either the wrong color or the wrong size. 

5. The Finishing Touch

One of our top tips is to match your shoes and your purse to your hair color. Shoes and a purse that match your hair will pull your entire outfit together regardless of what you are wearing. We think this purse is an amazing choice for blondes.

Even if you are in your sweats or your yoga pants, this is the quickest tip to looking pulled together, even if your life is a hot mess. 

We love these shoes! Pick a shoe with a pattern to showcase your own personal style. Click here to see more options.
