If there is one color you want to highlight in your wardrobe to make your skin stand out, it's white. White makes your skin look dark, deep, and rich. And not everyone can wear white as beautifully as olive-skinned women. Your black or brown hair will also contrast nicely against the white clothing.

Hot pink makes your skin look sexy and vibrant and is definitely one of the best clothing colors for olive skin. It's especially nice to wear in the Summer in the form of a hot pink bikini or sun dress. Wear this color any time you want to be the life of the party and get noticed.

Bright yellow is gorgeous on olive skin specifically because it highlights the yellows and greens already in your skin. Keep this cheerful color in your closet for the Springtime.

Some people are intimidated by wearing a full yellow outfit, so try a blouse with different colored pants, or even just a lightly wrapped yellow scarf with one of your everyday outfits.

Maroon is a deep, sultry color that is perfect for your wardrobe in the Wintertime. It will make your complexion appear warm and golden. Maroon can be hard to come by, even in the colder months, but is most frequently seen in sweaters and occasionally in holiday dresses.

Green is a color that most people do not wear frequently unless it is trending. But you should wear even if it isn't the hot color of the season. You will notice when you put olive green on that your dark hair will stand out more. And while some people cannot wear olive green, it will look perfect on you.

You might be surprised to find black on this list of olive skin clothing colors. While it certainly is not as beautiful a color on you as white, black is still a must-have. With your dark hair sitting atop your head, a black dress or suit will give you a lovely, dark silhouette. Black is also one of the only colors you can wear head to foot without being called "overdone."
