Flattering shades for blue-eyed gals

If you have blue eyes, you have lots of clothing color choices that will make your baby blues the focus of your face.

Flattering shades for blue-eyed gals

The classics

Classic neutrals -- navy, black, white -- should be the building blocks of your wardrobe. Partner other flattering colors with them for a multitude of looks.

Rosy colors make blue eyes shine, so add some light to your face with a spectrum of pinks from the palest blush to vibrant bubble gum. Also good are most reds and true rose.

For deep blue eyes, add bold blue near your face. Cobalt and turquoise blue will deepen your eye color, while robin's egg blue and washed denim will lighten it. Most shades of blue work well for you.

Clear, bright colors such as lemon and pear green are great choices. Lighter greens flatter more than the darker hues, and warmer tones are preferable to muddy ones. Pumpkin and gold enhance your blue eyes, too.

You can wear browns in nearly every shade, so add some items in dark chocolate; balance those browns with a creamy taupe. Lavender and plum are flattering, but rich pure purple make your eyes look amazing. Go for saturated colors that contrast your face and make your big, blue eyes the beautiful focus.
