I was held up by this week’s installment of the Wardrobe Architect. The color thing I wasn’t really interested in doing. But I buckled down and here are the results. I think one of my things is that black is the main color (although khaki is creeping in a bit more) and then I wear something that pops, meaning I like a lot of bright or strong colors. Bright orange is my favorite, but I like bright blue (aqua) or bright green too. I used Kuler to create these palettes. As for base colors, I never wear brown, grey or white.

I think you have a very good sense of what works for you color-wise. I'm not sure that I've ever seen you in anything where I thought "that color isn't doing her any favors." I think you could pull off white (but understand if you don't like white), but I don't think brown or gray would look very nice on you.
I love brown and gray (especially gray) but over the last few years I've been making a concentrated effort to get more color into my wardrobe.
I love to play with color but do often fall into the same color ruts. I look nice in jewel tones and try to find those when I am seeking out color. I have started wearing brightly colored pants (summer lightweight – like my green pair warn at BHS reunion). I figure if the hipster kids can do it, so can I!!! I also try to seek out fun patterns, though I think I wear solid colors the most!
