I'm a "summer" courtesy of Color Me Beautiful by Carole Jackson, and I don't know if that's considered outdated info now, but I believe it is correct.

best - any blue, pink, or purple unless extremely pale, charcoal gray, some browns, off-white.
worst - orange, yellow, sage green, any light pastels, pure white, rust.

I look good in autumn colors. My favorite colors are chocolate brown (more like espresso brown), black, and dark reds. Lately, I'm also playing with raspberry and dark purple.

Yellow, stay away from me please...

Are you sure gray is bad for you? What about charcoal gray? It's a nice way to tone down a black outfit... you know, a gray scarf, shirt, or even gray tights....
