I’ve taken a different approach here, which I think might be an effective way to wear a color that you really LOVE, (or that you have to wear for purposes of work or social solidarity – think favorite sports team) but that isn’t terribly flattering to you. (if you look good in the color, live it up; you’re an uncommon beauty!)
Basically, I’ve concentrated the color in a pair of shoes, and a bracelet – two items that aren’t going to have any opportunity to flatter or detract from your face, unless you’re a contortionist. Then a couple of prints or patterns that include moderate doses of the color in question, but which will bring the shoes and/or bracelet into your outfit with a deliberation that makes your outfit “pull together”.
Add a solid-colored cardigan, but also a scarf which mitigate the effect of the color by bringing some brightness and cheer (and colors that suit you better!) closer to your face. Does this all make sense?
