There are practitioners of color theory in fashion today.

I think most women wear what is in fashion when they are younger, regardless of color. And then as we age, we tend to fall back on things we are comfortable wearing, or that have worked for us in the past.

Personally, I am tired of black. It is not as common as it used to be, but you still do see a lot of it. I imagine most modern women own multiple pairs of black pants.

Some people just notice color more than others. I am one of those people, and it sounds as if you are too.
I learned all about it from that book, Color Me Beautiful.

But I think a lot of people get it wrong when trying to classify themselves as summer, winter, autumn or spring. The main criteria to use is skin tone. (Yellow or blue under tones).

I don’t think there is a general color for me because there is always a shade that looks bad on me. Navy kind of washes me out but many other jewel tone blues look great on me. I look good in many jewel tones. I have a red orange on now and have gotten compliments. Tangerine brings out all my veins.

In 1775, the Redcoats wrote that the Colonials who drove them back to Boston, wore "sadd colors". They were defeated by ordinary people and all they could say was a fashion statement that we wore "sadd colors". We still do Think about this. Walk into a Maine country store or coffee shop and take note of the customers. They wear various shades of green and brown. Many wear camo hats.

(Cross country skiers wear wild colors because they don't want to be run over by snowmobiles.)

How the heck should I know?

Just because not everyone is SENSITIVE to something doesn't mean that it can't affect them. Some people aren't as sensitive to getting hit physically with something, yet it still is not a good thing to happen.

Right. That's why they don't make khaki clothing.

I've heard this, but I am not sure it is true. Brown eyed people with cool coloring probably don't look good in brown. On the other hand, almost everyone looks good in some shade or hue of blue.

Or perhaps there is a cooler toned brown out there? No clue about that. Trying to imagine a cooler toned brown. Perhaps a grayish brown?

I have like a slate gray eye color. It is okay for me but not what I’d call the best color. It tends to change depending on what I wear and look more blue, turquoise, green, or gray depending on the outfit or makeup I have on.

Yes. In haircoloring, there is ash brown. It is a grayed tone cool brown.
