Femme Fatales don’t wear bright yellow or fluorescent pink. Go through your wardrobe and pick out all the dark green, maroon orlittle black dresses. Pick dark colors that compliment your skin tone. If you don’t have anything, go and look around at a clothes store nearby. Don't be afraid to try different dark colors and styles.
