I'm not sure if all pale skin is the same. Probably depends how much redness you have. But I am in the same boat and I have to stay away from brown, yellow, most greens (moss, the yellower ones, etc), a lot of beige/cream/off-white shades, and some dull charcoal/greys. Earth tones are not my friend. I know that sounds like a lot, but I've calibrated my senses to recognize immediately when an item makes me look sallow. I've learned to just stick to blue/red/purple/pink/orange/black/white/cool greys/dark charcoals. I see lots of stuff in camel, green, whatever that I love but I move on without thinking twice.
