Will this emerald dress suit cool-toned?

I'm of the dark hair and dark eyes, pale skin, cool-toned variety.

Oh, and I am a cool-toned Asian, if it matters.

Green suits everyone. grin

Actually no, I find it hard to find a green that suits me and does not make me look sick. I don't have a single green item of clothing. But I want to try.

I'm cool toned and that particular green doesn't work on me, it has to be a bit bluer (although it's hard to tell without seeing it irl, lots of colours that suit me don't seem to photograph true). Most greens don't work but when I find the right one it looks amazing.

I think that particular green looks a bit yellow and not blue enough to suit cool toned skin. I am a cool toned HOC winter and blue greens like pine look great on me but anything yellow green makes me look sickly

Thank you! Not for me then.

Does cool toned mean yellow undertones to pale skin and dark eyes and hair? I've no idea, but that's me and that green is basically the only shade - if it's a really popping emerald green like it looks in the picture - that suits me (and it really suits me) and doesn't make me look like I should be residing in a morgue.

No, the opposite. Blue undertones.
