Fashion magazines will often advise you to choose the tones in your wardrobe according to what "season" you are. But this can be very confusing. I feel I'm borderline fall/winter and have serious trouble deciding which better speaks to the melancholy of my looks. (I also still can't figure out what shape face I have when the magazines do the sunglasses and haircut features, but that's another problem.)
So what's an easier way to know if a color works for you? If three homeless men tell you, "I love you in orange" in the course of one evening, then you might have found your hue.
