Peach is an incredibly difficult colour. It looks great on blondes with peachy complexions and, done with care, can also look good on very white skin with black hair. But on darker skins from olive to black, peach is a killer – very washing out. So, with her sallow skin and light brown hair, Trinny has always avoided peach.
But right now, peach is splashed all over our high streets. Trinny decided that, for the purposes of research, she would try to make it work. Trinny says: “The right make up helps; either go for a dusting of bronzing powder with a nude lip or go for an apricot blush to warm up the cheeks. Dab some on the lips to match then add a gloss or lip balm to make them luscious.”
For a fabulously fresh, summery look, team peach with white. If peach is not your colour keep it say from your face and wear white on your top half. And don’t be afraid to experiment with something left-field like the iridescent sequinned jacket that Trinny has picked here.
Here are some looks from the wardrobe, going clockwise:
With COS peach and white pleated top
Add a French Connection sequinned jacket
White sleeveless COS top with a jacket by Chloé
