If you have an autumn wedding to attend, you will need to find what color will suit both your skin tone and the seasonal theme. You may be wondering what colors suit you best. Mahogany skin tones have an advantage when it comes to wearing a variety of colors. However, finding the right color specifically in the autumn color range could be rather complex if you don't know what you are looking for.
Red is definitely your color if you have a rich mahogany skin tone. Red is also perfect for an autumn wedding because it's associated with fallen leaves and apple harvests. A deep shade of red will give you the soulful style you seek for the occasion. Look at dresses in burgundy, rust and other deep reds. You are sure to stand out and look gorgeous.
Metallics are totally applicable to the autumn theme as long as they are the right shades. Avoid cold metallics, which will leave your skin looking dry and gray. Seek out stunning copper, gold and bronze creations. The glow of these shades will illuminate the richness of your skin. These hues also add a modern twist to an autumn theme.
Despite green being mostly associated with spring, you can still make an earthy green gown look totally stunning for autumn. Choose a subtle green that is closer to khaki. This shade will reinforce the earth tones in your complexion.
Brown can be tricky because you do not want to end up wearing a dress that is the same shade as your natural skin. Go for a beige, taupe or wheat shade of brown -- the lighter the better. This creates a delicious contrast like a cocoa and cream dessert. You can look every bit the diva in light brown -- especially if it's glistening silk or satin.
