We here at SoYouWanna.net are a bit rebellious, so we've chosen to sack the traditional "seasonal" categories in favor of those put forth by style maven Doris Pooser in her book Secrets of Style. They are: Deep, Light, Bright, Muted, Warm and Cool.

Remember that certain colors-like black, white, gray, navy, true red and true green-are considered "universal," meaning they can be worn with flair by anybody. Also remember that playing around with color is fun, so don't feel tied down to a limited palette of hues. Similarly, if you find that you were not represented by any of the above categories, don't despair. Wear colors that you feel comfortable in, or ask friends what shades suit you best.
