Buyers Guide

  1. What raspberry color is right for me?

    Answer: The right raspberry color for you will depend on your skin tone. You have a warm skin tone if your skin has apricot or golden undertones—the raspberry color that is right for you are warmer raspberry hues. You have a cool skin tone if your skin has blue undertones and the best raspberry hues for you are the cooler ones.

  2. What colors work with raspberry?

    Answer: The colors that work well with raspberry include cool types like navy, grey, beige, green and white. If you want to stand out, pair it with orange or hot red and cobalt blue. You can also enhance the richness of the color by pairing it with gold and silver accents.

  3. What shoe colors work best with raspberry?

    Answer: Black is always a no-brainer since it suits all colors. It’s timeless and sophisticated too. Black balances the pizazz of raspberry especially the brighter ones. Black ballet flats work well with a sundress for summer while black heels are great for a raspberry cocktail dress or evening gown. You can also enhance the color by means of metallic colors—wear pumps or sandals in colors like gold, silver or copper. In addition, it makes for a beautiful evening look. If you want to pair your raspberry frock with pink shoes, just make sure that the shoes are not the same color as your dress—pick another pink hue like fuchsia or pale pink. Raspberry and green also looks lovely—green shoes add more to the fun and vivacity of raspberry.
