Who doesn’t love a nice tan in the summer (or all year round for that matter)? A tan can make you appear healthy, thinner, and active and, let’s face it, we all want others to see our beautiful tan. But you don’t need to get a dark tan for that—a light one will suffice. The trick is to wear colors that will show off your lovely glow and, today, we’re going to explore the best colors to wear. Here are the six colors that will enhance your tan this summer.


You’ll probably end up falling in love with this color! Why? This happy color contains orange and pink so its warm hues will give you healthy-looking skin in addition to showing off your gorgeous tan. It won’t matter what your skin tone or hair color is, coral will make you appear to be glowing and is perfect to wear night or day.

Orange and Gold

Doesn’t orange make you think of a sunrise or sunset? There are many shades of orange: rust, peach, amber, or pumpkin to name a few. Any shade you choose will give you a healthy glow. If you’re lucky enough to have a natural tan, this is a great color for you because orange will bring out the brown and red tint in your skin. However, if you use a spray tan, it’s best to stay away from orange all together—the spray tan may give your skin an orange tinge, and wearing any shade of orange will only enhance it.

Gold is an energetic, fun color that’ll compliment your terrific tan. Put on some shimmery makeup and a shiny gold outfit and you’ll look stunning! It’s an amazing color to wear in the evening too.


The lighter tones of purple are fantastic for highlighting hazel and green eyes in addition to your tan. If you’re not a girly girl, that’s okay. Purple isn’t really a girly color but it’s feminine, so you can still pull off wearing a light purple print top or skirt. Colors like lilac, lavender, or mauve will look awesome on you.


Okay, we all knew this very common color would be on the list, right? Off-white is ideal for a dark tan while bright white is amazing for accentuating a light tan. White looks great on anyone and can be paired well with any color. So go ahead, wear that white skirt or dress for a night on the town!


If you’re a blue-eyed beauty, this color will not only make your tan pop but your eyes too! Consider shades like celeste, tiffany, or cyan. Maybe go for sea colors—blues that have a touch of green such as teal or turquoise.


Pink, like coral, is another warm color that’ll give you a rose-colored complexion so you’ll look fresh, healthy and tan. Brush on some light pink blush to go with your pink outfit to complete your look. Which pink to wear is entirely your choice and can match your personality—maybe a classic light pink is more your style or a bright, vivid magenta is more to your liking. No matter which hue of pink you wear, you’ll look radiant!

Wearing these colors will make you look (and feel) like a tanned goddess. So get out there and show off that beautiful tan! For more information on how to enhance your tan, check out Bronze Tan St. Louis. Contact us for more information about getting your best tan.
