Mix and match

. A rose gold top in silk, satin, rayon or organza is ideal as it adds to the elegance of the shade. Power sleeves or layered, ruffled ones will work wonders.
. Pair this with soft and warm shades such as Caspian blue or oyster gray for contrast. Or pick a pair of deep brown formal silk pants for a professional look.
. Pumps might be a good idea, though not in a colour that pops.

The glam diva

. The royal shade of pink is ideal for a big occasion, whether it's a personal or professional event. Pick a shiny, swanky one-piece for a glam look.
. Choose a cut that complements your body type as a one piece in this shade is all about how the garment flows.
. Avoid high slits if you don't want to reveal your legs; slip into a halter instead.
. When it comes to footwear, pair this with nude or white glitter heels. Sneakers or boots are strict no-nos, as it would prove to be a distraction.

. Opt for a sharara or palazzo set with silver or gold sequin work. Printed options are tricky as they might look awkward and take away from the shade.
. Pair this with a nude, beige, or taupe shrug or dupatta, and golden or silver jutis. You can opt for a blingy one. Avoid heels or pumps.
. Stick to gold or silver accessories — the same shade of the sequinned work on your outfit.

Boys to men

. Wear a head-to-toe suit only if you feel confident enough. If not, wear a shirt or T-shirt in a deeper version of the shade, and make sure it's not too shiny. Don't pair it with a variant of the colour as that will look odd. Wear the same shade instead.
. Avoid a shade that is darker than your skin. Those without facial hair might also want to give this look a miss.
. Pair this with dark, covered shoes. Don't wear black or shades such as golden or even nude. Avoid boots.
