I love wearing periwinkle! If you are neither warm or cool colored, shouldn’t you be able to wear all colors?

I am pale, so a lot of lighter colors tend to wash me out on both sides of the spectrum. I tend to stay away from pastels. I am wearing a lilac workout shirt now and it is bright enough to look ok.

I am pale. Not light ivory pale, but light peachy pale. I hear you about looking washed out. And it has gotten worse for me as I have gotten older. But I think I wear pastels quite well.

I am beginning to see a dark claret red in fashion now. Watch for it to get popular in the coming year. I can’t wear that color in clothing. But I bought a new leather bag in that old fashioned oxblood color. So, I am wearing that color, sort of.

Green is still available, as is “millennium pink.” I like seeing new colors popping out in fashion. Alas, aqua has had its day.

Aqua was great on me. Millennial pink is terrible. Claret red colors are awesome. If I am more tanned looking, I tend to look better in pastels, but since I moved from my FL beach town to the Midwest, I am now solidly pasty.

I couldn't even begin to guess at what color my skin tone is and what goes with it. I wear what I think looks good. Period.

As an easily suntanned brunette (now mostly gray) I found out, already as a kid, that yellow and green, as well as deep red look great on me. Powder blue is the big no-no, black is unflattering; my suits were always brown or navy blue. Even my jeans. I only wear dark blue denims - if they fade too much, I throw them out. I have always looked great as a result.

I think sometimes it can potentially make people look physically sick. Either they aren't aware of this, or else they just don't care. Maybe they are doing it to identify with a certain group. Or it's a color they like, even though it doesn't look good on them. That's possible.

By the way, I'm not talking about neutral colors which most people tend to wear anyway. I mean bold colors that can really clash sometimes.
ALSO, I think there are some people who seem to look good in any color. I don't know how they do it. Maybe it's how they accessorize things.

Maybe I am just too sensitive to these things. (Don't say it. I KNOW I probably am.)
But honestly I don't even consider myself that fashion conscious, which is the strange part.

What do you think?
I knew someone who loved the color orange. She looked ghastly in it, but she wore it anyway because she loved it, and couldn’t or wouldn’t see it made her look sallow.

Are we talking about paint colors or people?

I don't know if I'm a "warm" "neutral" or "cool" tone. All I know is that my base complexion is olive/yellow and I wear any color that makes me feel like a million bucks. Honestly I wear just about every color there is.

My hair has been falling out and I'm wearing a very light platinum blonde wig. I've noticed just about every color looks good with the wig, and somehow the wig being lighter than my skin tone evens everything out so I can wear every color without looking sickly or washed out. I haven't tried yellow or orange yet because I generally avoid those colors.

This is not a hard thing to know.
