Avoid dark colors. Wear colors in the shade of white or yellow.

Honestly in my opinion there is no clothing that can put a damper on a brunette. But in fact lighter colored clothing will help to bring out the color in a brunettes hair.

A black complexion will compliment all colors that are light from green, orange, blue to yellow. A dark color such as black or brown will also blend with a darker complexion, but bright colors compliment a dark complexion better in the end.

My skin tone is olive. I am an Indian. Always get confused with choosing the right color when shopping and end up buying black or white. Please suggest what colors that would suit my skin tone

For an olive tone woman the colors that will help to compliment your skin tone will be any color that is light for darker colors will tend to not give off your complexion better than light colors.

These light colors will include peach, green, orange or light blue. Any of these colors or colors in the same light spectrum will help in order to compliment your complexion.

If you have olive skin tone, then you are classified under the "Winter" season or cool tone. Asians and Blacks usually have olive skin tone and would look striking on strong palettes such as black, white, grey, red, and pink. Steer clear from the hues of orange, green, yellow, and tan though, as it would not be flattering for your skin tone. The basic thing to note about pairing clothing colors and patterns with your skin undertone is that the dark skin goes pretty well with pale colors (especially white) , light skin tone can cleverly pull off any dark clothing colors, and the neutral skin tone typically meshes well with the primary chromes.
