While it’s absolutely important to keep your body type in mind while choosing a saree, you can’t deny the fact that colours play an equally important role when it comes to style. After all, you can’t expect to make an impression in a beautiful saree that doesn’t go with your skin tone at all. Indian skin tones range from light to dusky, and while it’s a blessing as you can pull off a number of shades, most Indian women aren’t aware of what works well for their skin tone. But fret not! Here are some awesome colours for Indian skin tones.

If you have a dusky complexion, don’t be afraid to pick colours that are closer to your skin tone. Dark shades like brown and magenta work well for you. Hence, this magenta saree with zari work will flatter your skin tone like no other.
Maroon is a staple colour for every Indian woman, and for good reason. It’s a colour that suits every Indian skin tone – light or dark. And this lovely maroon saree is a great piece to wear for work as well as social dos.
It’s not the go-to colour of every woman for nothing. For starters, the colour has a universal appeal and gives you plenty of room to experiment with your look. And this black saree with a red and golden border does just that. However, steer clear of dirty shades of black as they make your complexion appear ashen. Go with jet black or shimmering black instead.

10. Cream or off-white
A colour for all Indian skin tones, cream is a popular choice. While women with light skin tones can carry it off extremely well, contrary to popular belief, the colour looks amazing on dusky women too. Throw in a bit of dark pink and you are set to look like a million bucks.
