HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HOSIERY FOR THE SKIN TONE


It can be challenging to find the right colour and shade for hosiery when looking for a nude or bare leg look.


PALE SKIN
Colour names vary from brand to brand. Best to look out for the palest nude option and to add a bit of colour then choose one with a bit of a golden shade or anything that will say "enhance leg colour", but be careful that it won't look "too tinted" on the leg, as this will give a dated look.


TANNED SKIN
With tanned skin look out for hosiery with brown undertones. Great as well with a bit of shine to give it a sun kissed glowing effect. While wearers who want to add some sun kissed colour to the legs, choose carefully a colour that won't "over tan" the legs, since they can easily overpower by displaying a different
skin colour on the legs to the rest of the body. It can look suddenly very "unnatural", so it is best to go for a "healthy skin colour" that works with the rest of the body's skin.


OLIVE SKIN
This describes a Mediterranean or Asian skin colour or wearers who tend to get very tanned. Look out for a "nougat" tone in nude tights.With pale skin this runs the risk of over tanning the legs and with an olive skin runs the risk of giving them not only an unnatural look but also washing them out. If in doubt choose a
darker than a lighter tone. This skin tone needs shine and glitter in the hosiery since it could simply over power their skin and the overall look if not.


DARKER SKIN
Wearers with a darker skin tone are best to match the tights with the skin tone rather going for any lighter shade, as this will have an unnatural effect on the look. Gloss and shimmer will look great on this skin colour to add vibrance and shine.
