so, how can I learn to know what's my bodytype and what colors suit to me the best etc.? I dress so dull; jeans and black,long-sleeved t-shirt usually...but I'm afraid to use colors etc.! if someone can help me with this, I'd be so thankful!
note from moderator: merged with later thread of similar subject, entitled What colours suit you best?- can we try to keep the discussion going in that direction? Thanks
Your body type won't have much to do with what colors look nice on you, but your complexion, hair color, and eye color will.
Most people fall into either warm or cool tone categories. Warm tones include most reds, orange, brown, greens with yellowish or brownish tones, yellow, cream, gold. Cool tones include blue, purple, greens with blueish tones, most greys, white, and silver. Pinks can go either way, depending if they tone more toward red/coral or lilac/fuschia.
Typically speaking, most brunettes and redheads look best in warm colors, most blondes and black-haired/fair-skinned people look nicer in cool tones. Of course there are many exceptions and variations, but I think a trip into the dressing room with a varied selection of tops in different colors will help you decide what looks best. If at all possible, take a very honest friend along who will help you with constructive commentary on when a color looks good or bad.
Kick me in the head if there's already a thread on this, but what colours suit you best - i.e. match your skin tone, flatter your body type, etc.
I started to wear pink on a regular basis since I realised it was flattering to my pale skin. But I'm not too fond of electric pink or any other shocking colours. I also love blue, but it makes me look too anemic. Red is also good but it requires a certain "attitude" that I don't have at the moment.

Blue (especially navy, but most shades) and red suit me well. Hmmm. Other colors in specific shades look very nice as well, but those two always work. I can't think of another that always works in any shade...
