In the US, and several other countries, we’re all about coral for the Spring. But unfortunately, this yellow-based color is not exactly flattering on the majority of women. This does not, however, mean it’s a fashion no-no.

When it comes to wearing the latest colors and shades, make sure the color closest to your face is the most flattering. For instance, if yellow-based colors are not your thing and you find blue-based shades more appealing, put the blue-toned item at your face and the yellowish color further away.

So, if you want to wear coral, try pairing it with a cornflower blue scarf or jacket. Those two colors work perfectly together and this way you can still wear coral without looking sick or washed out.
