What Clothing Colors Can I Wear to Make My Brown Eyes Stand Out?

Go for the Gold

Gold is a great color to bring out brown eyes. Stick with pale or subdued shades, such as one Selena Gomez was seen in recently, to gently draw out the warmth of deep brown eyes; too-bold golds can outshine light brown eyes. Other gold-like shades with yellow tones, such as mustard or butter cream, will also bring out your browns.

Get Red-dy

Rev up brown eyes with a rich shade of red. Deep reds, such as burgundy and maroon, will bring out the richness of dark brown eyes without overpowering them; bright shades like cherry or fire-engine red may be too bold for your eyes to hold their own. Neutral shades, such as brick red, are strong but subdued enough to let lighter browns shine.

Match It Up

What better way is there to bring out the brown than wearing more brown? Clothing in the same shade as your eyes is bound to enhance your peepers. You don't have to make an exact match; a peanut-shade dress does just as well at enhancing light brown eyes as a honey-brown top, while a chocolate or mahogany piece will bring out deep brown eyes.

Get the Blues

To bring out your brown eyes, break out the blue. Try lighter shades of blue, such as cornflower or pale cyan, for a nice contrast with pale shades of brown. Intense blues, like turquoise or cerulean, will carry the intensity of deep brown eyes.
