I think this is a universal truth: Peach looks good on everyone! It brightens women’s faces and softens any look. I really think it’s the most feminine color out there. But that’s just me. You might be saying, No Way! It’s Pink! or Red! Pink can look feminine for sure, but it’s also associated with that over the top, bubble gum, barbie doll, girly froth. Red can look feminine too, but it’s also associated with anger, passion and heat.
Peach. It’s perfectly sweet. Perfectly feminine without being over the top. It has the bright happiness associated with orange and the lovely girliness associated with pink, but the combination balances everything out. So that’s a little bit of color theory for ‘ya by yours truly:)
I’m going to try to find as many people with varied skin tones wearing different shades of peach to prove my point!
You’ve already seen this one of Diane Lane from a previous article, but it’s a great example!
Diane Lane wearing an orange/peach shade in Under the Tuscan Sun:
Doesn’t she look absolutely lovely? The shirt dress is so well tailored to her frame, it’s ri.DI.cu.lous! The color softens her facial features and compliments her hair color and updo. Amazing.
Okay, so this is a bit more burnt orange than peach, but in my book, it’s still in the peach family:) She looks absolutely stunning!
Now this is more like a shiny peach. Doesn’t she look flawless?
Claire Danes looks oh-so-lovely in this peach number:
Now, before you come to the conclusion that peach only looks good on Caucasian women, you have to check out Eva Longoria. This is probably her most noteworthy red carpet look, for good reason!
I think peach looks especially flattering on women of color. Check out Sanaa Lathan:
And who can forget Halle Berry at the 2003 SAG Awards when she dazzled on the red carpet in this frock?
What about if you have yellow undertones in your skin like mine? I found this asian girl in a peach summer dress. Doesn’t she look cute?
Here’s another Asian girl in a formal peach dress. It makes her skin look rosy and flawless!
Let’s change it from “Pretty in Pink” to “Pretty in Peach!” Gorgeous color on every skin tone.
