About This Quiz

Fashion is a fickle thing when your actual body can dictate just what kind of colors look good on you. Try to forget everything you enjoy in terms of your favorite colors, seasons or feelings when it comes to fashion. Long story short, if a color looks good on you, it's not necessarily because you love the color -- but because the color loves you!

Why would a color love you? It's simple. Your body type, your body tone, your personality and fashion sense in general -- they all play a role in the kind of colors that work well with you. Like it or not, but if you like the color blue, you might find out that the hue hits all the wrong notes and makes you look dumpy and dowdy. That's something you don't want. Likewise, perhaps you enjoy the color pink, and if that's the case, we're hoping your skin tone complements it quite nicely. If not, you most likely will look like a messed-up Easter decoration and not the fashion model you hope to be.
