Are there certain colors you won't wear (and would you be annoyed at this?)

I don't wear yellow or orange. I just don't like orange, and yellow makes me look like a creamsicle, what with the blonde and the super paleness.
I also don't wear brown, not because I necessarily dislike it, but more that I find it hard to wear. I wear a LOT of black, and I don't like the look of black and brown together, so mixing brown in with all my black is challenging. So I just don't. I literally own two things that are brown, both because I really liked the item but it didn't exist in black.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
