As much as you'd like to free yourself, express yourself through fashion and go all the way, it's important to mind your colour selection.
If you are dark skinned, Brown is a no-go area for you, instead, you should pick brighter colours. It won’t contrast clearly enough with your skin, this will result in your look ‘bleeding’ into your skin.
For a lighter/fairer Skin, darker colours like grey, brown, burgundy, bottle green, navy and bolder shades of blue will all work well. These will do a perfect contrast to your skin tone.
