Almost everything I own is black but I do love the color blue and people say the lighter blues look good on me and I think it's because of my blonde hair. During the holidays I wore a lot of red...which I hate but everyone said I look good in it because of my skin color. Is there one color you look better in than any other? Is it your favorite color? Do you feel comfortable in that color or not?

Personally, I like Black and Dark Blue. I cannot wear yellow. It makes me look like a corpse. No Joke!! Greens bring out the color of my eyes, but I'm not a big fan of green, as I spent enough time in it in the military.

Green looks good on me I think. I have reddish hair (for now *wink*) and green eyes, plus light/ruddy skin and freckles. Even when my hair is blond, green still looks good.

I tend to wear the colors that I like instead of going by what I'm supposed to look good in. I am also blond and I like to wear the sky blue colors. These days I'm getting so I like gray a lot too. Years ago I was into Amway and I was given a color diagnosis and my colors were spring and fall. But I tend to buy the colors that I like.

Even though I like the color blue I still tend to buy black clothes and I'm not even sure why. I guess it's because black goes with everything.

I love greens, brown and baby blue. I asked my husband what one color he thought looks the best on me and he pointed at my skin. Dummy. Anyway, finally he said he likes red on me the best. I have blonde hair with hazel eyes that sometimes look green and sometimes look blue.

Yes,that's ture~I always ware black or blue,Whenever I was in other color I felt uncomfortable.what's worst,sometimes my friends just told me it didn't look good on me.And then I made sure that some color are just not suitable for me. so far as you, a girl with blonde hair,I can imagine when you're in red or blue,I sure it's looks great

hi ctrymuziklvr. I like to wear black clothes too, but black is not the best color for me. I have a spring type of beauty, light eyes, blonde hair, skin in warm tone. Colors like red, green, and golden additions should look good on me. And they do:). In the past I used to wear only these colors, which I liked. Now I wear colors which I like and which suits me well. I start to pay attention to this. have a nice day, jazgottt

I have all the rainbow colours in my garderobe. The brown color looks better on me. Besides this it's my horoscope color. My favorite one is the red and the black. I look nice in both of them.I feel comfortable wearing all kind of colr that exists. It doesn't matter to me.

I like black a lot and i wear a lot of black, other colors that i like are grays, browns,some greens and all the colors that i like would be soft colors..I do like red very much and also have some reds....I like soft blues, soft peach, soft yellow...I really g=do not like viberate colors like hot or bright pink,but i do like a pale soft pink,and a soft blue..I will wear all kinds of colors but it depends on the shade...I have an olive complection, due to being a cajan, so i look good in colors but i like all the pastels..I wear orange a lot but it is a soft orange, not bright,since i have dark hair and olive completion i can wear colors well..I think one of my favorite colors would be purple,and violet colors.....

Yes, I was told that a melon color looks great on me because of my skin color which is very pale. I like blue the best because it makes my eyes even darker blue. Weird but it does. Even the color green does that too. However I like black a lot because it doesn't show dirt as much as colors do however it does show a lot of pet hair so when I wear the color black, I can't pet my fur babies.

Wow you sound just like me. I have blonde hair too, and black is my favorite color to wear because I think that's what looks best on me. I hate the way I look in red clothes. I have tan skin...but I don't really like lighter blues that much.

I too own mostly black clothing and blue jeans. I may have the odd color brown, red or green, or white top but thats about it. My wardrobe mainly consists of black because it is my favorite color. I am trying to add a few colorful tops just to break the black but most of the time I always resort back to black.

I have very pale skin, so look terrible in yellow. It makes me look sick. People say dark colors are best for me, but I'm not the best judge of color, as am color blind.

90% of my wardrobe is black, I seldom buy other colors unless I have no choice. I feel so comfortable in black and even there are several colors available for a particular design, I would still opt for black! I guess it has really become my signature color.
