I guess I don't wear dressy blue as a neutral. But I do wear denim that's blue as a neutral and I have a denim purse. The reason I don't wear navy as a neutral, even though it's recommended, is that it's so awful on me. But recently I've discovered that my dark browns aren't as good as I thought either. I'm much better in a softer brown.
So: my casual summer neutral is really denim blues of various shades. Just not navy. However I still wear mostly my hair brown for shoes. I still were a medium brown for a summer neutral and a casual soft white.
I also have a heathered grey pair of dress pants that I like very much, even saved some black shoes from my black purge just for those pants. I'd like charcoal even better and I think it will replace my dark brown neutrals which are already gone with charcoal for winter.I know I bounce around like a rabbit, and you have trouble figuring out where I'll be in the color world next. :-(

interchangeably between a non-colour and an actual colour (green, red,
blue etc) that you build your wardrobe around. I guess perhaps 'staple'
might be a better word, ie olive green could be a staple colour for me,
and blue a staple for Ineke.

To me, neutrals are, first and foremost, my body colors and variants of those. For instance, I have my skin color match (very hard to find). Then I have tan, which is a more browned version of my skin. I have my eye color match, a rather deep blue-green, and variants of this: weaker navy with a yellow tinge, making it look a tad greener, and a lighter version of it, the blue-green with my skin color mixed into it: Forget-Me-Not blue. Finally I have my hair color match, and lots of variants of this, from light tan to medium "brown". I can't bring myself into saying it's brown, since it is so light and more a "dark blonde" with a slight yellow tinge.Black and charcoal can never be good neutrals for me, since they are too dark, even if I can find yellow-based versions. However, I see my olive as a neutral too, since it mixes so easily with all my colors. this is my eye color mixed with my skin color, and not darker than my overall hair color. It looks like that on my fan, anyhow. A medium, warm mix of all my body colors.On a cool-toned person with blue eyes and beige skin and medium brown/ark blonde hair, this color would be olive drab, I think - or even an olive with a distinctive blue undertone, maybe mixed with white for the lighter Summers. Those olives look ok on me as well, but it looks off if I am wearing cool makeup and cool colors along with it. My yellow olive looks "wow" in comparison.
