I refuse to wear that color!

RED!

It looks awful on me!  I have yet to find something in red that I can wear.  I've bought shirts over the last few years and they just don't lay well on me.  I could even buy the same shirt in another color and it looks fine.  Weird? 

Do you have a color you just can't wear?

Red here also :) I actually just hate the color. I think it's so ugly. I like off reds-like red hair-but true red just is so ugly to me.

Yellow for me.   It looks awful on me from clothes, jewelry, makeup, nail polish.

 Good point.  I think I've always liked red hair but 'normal' red just isn't pretty to me.

 And I love yellow!  I have yellow gloves that I wear all the time, well, when its cold!   Actually, even my luggauge is yellow!

 I like green on stuff, like accessories but I don't wear it unless its very dark green-almost black!

I'm not crazy about basic blue (I like lighter shades though), I don't think it looks that great on me nor green (again, I like the lighter shades haha).

Yes is nice as an accent or as part of a design... But I can't wear a green shirt or anything like that I don't think it works well with my skintone.

I don't know about cant, but I feel very uncomfortable in bright colors. I just don't like to stand out that much, I suppose, so bright yellows and lime greens and such are all no nos.
