It's good to use texture to add balance to your silhouette. And for those with summer and autumn coloring (in particular) to add interest to your outfit.
I love my autumn coloring and the clothes it lets me wear: range of orange-salmon-bittersweet. The warm browns, the military khaki and desert camouflage, the yellows and golds, the green-greens. Some catalogs still insist several of these are men's colours -- sillies!
Not dull at all, though people who want me to look serious beg me to wear less orange -- sissies!
Many more people can wear the black and blues, greys. And I enjoy looking at others wearing the colors I can't.
I used to buy green whenever I saw it in stores. Years ago there were only a few colors for sale in any season, and winter was hopeless for me. Frustration that now is healed, I think, by smarter manufacturers and buyers.
I'm looking forward to some day finding and being able to pay for a tweed or heather mixture that uses the fall colours outside just now: soft creams, browns, fawn, quiet orange, gold of leaves, some browned greens.
With a turquoise blue sky outside for a punch of not-boring. I already have that ring, so that bit's solved.
