1️⃣ Flip over your wrist and look at your veins. Are they green or blue? If they appear blue – your skin tone is cool, If they appear green – you are a warm one.

Why La Koketa App?
I’ve avoided the color analysis theme for 2 reasons:
1️⃣ It seemed a lot confusing to me and a lot of fuss, still, in the end, no clear solution came out.
2️⃣ Plus, I am not a fan of sticking “types” or etiquettes to people, especially when fashion is involved!
I’d rather give you the backbone of a carefully curated wardrobe and style than tell you what to wear!
We’ve created La Koketa app with the idea of exploring and defining your own style, identity, and outfits with what you already have in your closets! And with the vision of developing and upgrading your fashion stylish self!
❗ Finally, what do all those words and graphics mean to you? You still struggle every morning wondering how to style your favorite high-waisted mom’s jeans? You still don’t know if you actually need that color palette?!
Here are the main takeaways:
✅ Denim, purple, and teal go on everybody! Combine them with neutrals and that effortless chic would be captured in seconds!
✅ Use your color palette as a reference to optimize your hair and makeup – they are all yours to play with😉.
✅ Keep colors that don’t suit you away from your face. That way they do not have an impact on your complexion. Reserve them for shoes, bags, belts, even trousers! And keep them in small doses! Like this, you can still wear them, regardless of the fact that they do not belong to your color palette!
