Bikini Whisperer on The Best Suits for Freckled Skin
Freckles are beautiful — whether you bought ’em or were born with ’em, and whether your natural skintone is dark or light. If you have them, highlight your freckles with complementing prints and colorways.
Peachy pinks and soft corals are go-to hues for cool skin tones with strawberry blond or light auburn hair. Fair, freckled babes look best with lively spring hues found in flowers like lilacs and tulips. Keep in mind: The higher the contrast between your freckles and skintone, the softer your OTD color choice should be.
Freckled gals with warm skintones should opt for an earthy palette: shades of green, red, and burnt orange. For a neutral, avoid taupe and gray and give ivory a go. White can downplay the appearance of freckles, while high-impact black amplifies the skin contrast.
Avoid ditsy prints and patterns with small-scale repeats that create a busy look, and say yes to large-scale or single placement prints. Plus, you can never go wrong with an added touch of sheen — embellished textures and metallic threads play up freckles.
