Cream – A Special Treat for Special Occasions

Cream is white with a touch of yellow to make it softer and warmer than the cool white that clothing manufacturers love. It is not the easiest colour to find in the shops.

Cream contains the purity of white combined with the optimism of yellow. Those who love cream love new ideas and unusual experiences. On the negative side, wearing too much cream can lower your self-esteem.

When worn as a contrast or as a highlight on another colour, cream projects a polished and confident impression. When worn as a single clothing colour, it can come across as quite passive.

Cream is a lovely contrast to warm reds, browns, olive and warm purples and looks great on those with a spring or autumn colouring. Cream pearls always added a touch of elegance to any outfit.

As one of the skin colours, when you wear cream, check to make sure you do not look naked from a distance. Cream is a great neutral shoe colour as its skin tone lengthens your legs. Naked on your legs is fine.
