Sometimes, I admit- I don't care what season it is. Sometimes, there are gorgeous colours that just need to be worn. For me, it's usually a set of colours that I adore, and can't make work with my skin tone. :P But I think one of my future projects is this:
Browns and greens are so easy to work with, too. Sage grey-greens and some form of brown works on just about any skin tone, making them so forgiving and multi-seasonal, they're just hard to pass up! The real trick is figuring out the accessories.
Rule #1- Remember, even if your favourite colours don't necessarily work with you, maybe there's still a way to wear them... just not in large quantities. An absinthe-green kosode next to MY skin? Ack! A bunch of tan and pink blotches abound! O.x But that same colour as an obiage or some socks? Looks great!
PS- I've had that photo since... 2005, it looks like, and I can't seem to find it on Google's Image search to credit it properly. If it's your photo, please let me know! <3
