What Color Plus-Size Dress Should I Wear?

When selecting what color plus-size dress looks best on you there are several factors to consider including your skin tone, hair color, and eye color, which will all play a part in determining what shade and color will best suit you. First you’ll need to determine if you have warm, cool, or neutral undertones before selecting the ideal shade of your plus prom dress. This can quickly and easily be achieved by simply looking at the color of the veins in your wrist under natural light. If the veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone. If the veins in your wrist appear more green, then you have a warmer skin tone. A mixture of blue, green, and purple typically means you have a neutral skin tone. From there you can explore this collection of dresses in plus sizes by color to discover a variety of beautiful styles and cuts that will effortlessly complement your skin tone, eye color, and hair.

Ladies with cool skin tones usually have light blonde to medium brown hair and green or blue eyes and tend to look best in vibrant colors and rich shades. Try a bright pink plus-size prom dress, unique teal blue print plus dress, or channel your inner royalty in a purple plus-size evening dress.

Warmer skin tones are typically accompanied by dark red, black, or brown hair and hazel or brown eyes. These wonderful warm skin tones tend to look best in earthy colors and shades. Slip into a long plus-size hunter green dress for prom, a taupe or brown evening plus dress for an upcoming family celebration, or a sequined bronze formal evening dress for cocktail hour. These nature-inspired hues will beautifully complement women with warmer skin tones, for a look that is second to none.

Graced with a neutral skin tone? Women with neutral skin tones usually have hazel eyes that tend to change a bit depending upon the color you are wearing. As for hair color, it can range from blonde with darker streaks to brown with natural highlights. Typically, neutral skin tones look best in soft, pale colors like blush pink, dusty rose, jade green, or a light blue. A delicate blush pink chiffon plus party dress will effortlessly flatter your skin tone and highlight your feminine style, while a fully sequined plus-size jade green dress is ideal of letting your adventurous side shine at cocktail hour.

Once you’ve determined what colors best complement your skin tone, you can explore this collection of dresses in plus sizes by color. Here you’ll discover a variety of beautiful styles, timeless cuts, and fashion-forward details that will effortlessly complement your skin tone, eye color, and hair.
