As a fellow Asian, I've always disdained the "rule." The rules are made by others. I wear the colors that are attractive to my eyes. I believe that if you put a nice package together, that's more important than the rule. Otherwise, in summer, I'm sweating out in black, brown, while everyone else gets to wear the nice pastels (pink, yellow, sky blue.) Forget it. I believe having confidence in your personal style outweighs following some arbitrary rules.
