    Question in the title. My specific shade of ginger can be seen in my profile.

    EDIT: Might as well ask this too, any colours you think would look particularly good on me?

    Bright green's probably bad. I have no dress sense myself, but I tend to think: lighter colours on top, darker ones on the bottom, and don't go for anything fluorescent. I'm wearing red right now which I'd have thought clashed, but doesn't really look that bad.

    Dark green always looks good on gingers. And that blue in your pic looks fine.

    Pastels, I think, can be a bit dodgy sometimes, particularly if you have really pale skin which often comes with being a redhead. Dark green/blue/navy tends to work pretty well though

    just whatever you do, stay away from pink.


    and avoid bright orange like the plague.


    as well as anything neon or Day-glo.

    As a fellow ginger I tend to find that moss green is the best colour to go with ginger and purple. I would avoid red and orange (although not totally) and also light, light blue.

    Stay away from yellows/oranges for sure. I wouldn't recommend too many pale colours either, especially lilac. Dark colours tend to compliment gingers a lot, e.g. dark red, dark green etc.

    pink lipstick looks ******* amazing on ginger people though! (bright!)

    My friend is a ginger and she looks good wearing anything.
    As would you.
    the key is to experiment... you would even look great wearing the right jacket that matches ur hair colour, believe it or not =)

    As an honorary (former) ginge, I'd say red and orange are the only colours you should steer clear of, although yellow isn't the best either. Purple, on the other hand, is hot.
    *Disclaimer* I don't actually know anything about mens' clothin, mind.

    Cool, thanks guys. Pretty unanimous then: deep colour = good, pale colour = bad. I don't suppose anyone could hazard a guess as to what colour (or style of clothing, since we're here :p:) might look good on me specifically?
