I don't work in a normal office, so i can usually wear whatever i want, blue violet, teal, frosted forest green, to hang out at the local café. But, for example, when i'm meeting a client, especially for the first time, i'll wear a sensible "normal" color. I want them to think i'm competent, not wacky. I consider Hot Chocolate and Double Shot to fall into that "safe" range, along with warm pinks and pinky peaches. I don't wear red, orange, or bright/hot pink in any circumstance, because i look terrible in them.
But i know many people have to conform to some standards in their place of work, where safe or "normal" colors are de rigueur. So, i say, crack out the fun colors when you're not there!
