I love color. I love wearing color. I'm very pale, with yellow undertones, and I can look washed out pretty easy. I tend to avoid all pastels--not really on purpose (I think they're pretty) but because I put them on and look in the mirror and it looks like I have the flu or something. I also don't wear a lot of white. Oatmeal is terrible on me. I love love love tan and camel colors, but it's rare for me to find one that really works.
I think color is like other style choices. It's not JUST about what you like, but about what works on you. I love short dresses, but don't have the thighs to wear them, and I love asymmetrical bob haircuts, but that would look terrible with my curls. I love pale yellow, but don't have the coloring to wear it,
