Indian women are blessed with gorgeous skin tone that is not only versatile but, also radiant. The olive tone that leans toward brown can carry off any colour with élan. Indians have such varied skin tones that they can flaunt bold and bright hues like none other.
We are a lucky nation I must say, to wear all that bright, accentuating colours that we love.
Fuschia Pink: The Global Indian Colour
Colours for the Indian Skin Tone – Fuschia Pink
The colour that has inherently served to flush the Indian skin since ages is Fuschia or Rani pink. It brightens the face and gives you glow. A fuchsia or rani pink sari will flatter your skin. The experts have the same view as us.
Sport a fuschia knee-length dress, a sari or any other outfit and be carefree about your look with this vibrant colour.

Fuschia can be worn with neutral shades like white and black, avoid grey as it does not accentuate the hue on your skin.
Wear a fuschia top and pair it with a pair of white skinny denims
You can also wear an embellished fuschia sari or a traditional fuschia kurta paired with a neutral churidar
Go for fuschia accessories if you in no mood to carry the colour on your body. Co-ordinate your outfit with a pair of fuchsia pumps and a fuschia satin clutch for an evening out
