German Version

The snow-white woman embodies probably the coolest version among the dark haired color types. The creamy lightness of her very fair, rosy complexion is positively accentuated by the deeply dark shades of her black, or brown-black hair. Her eyes, either blue, green, gray or brown, will always contribute to underline the intensive contrast of her appearance. As cool as it its, this color type may remind us of the pleasant sides of the winter, what makes us look for fashion inspiration in winterly color worlds: All beautiful hues, either delicate or intensive, that can be found under the most snowy woods and lakes, or even warm and cosy under the light of a chimney, will suit this color type best!
