 The colors I like tend to not go well with my skin's "season." If the loli-coordinate is good, will it matter how the colors match with my skin tone, eyes, hair, etc.?

As long as you look ok I don't think anyone will even notice.
The only time I've seen coloring come up as an issue was with hair dyed an unnatural color that didn't match.

well... I really liked a lavendar dress on another person, so I bought one,... tried it on and it just didn't look good on me. The fit was fine. (in fact, I have the same dress in another color), it was entirely the lavendar color that was the problem.

I don't think you have to nessesarily follow your "season", but certain colors won't flatter you as well as other ones will. I tend to feel better and have more fun in dresses that look really good on me.

it's up to you! I seriously doubt someone will be like "OH MY GOD, your dress is out of your skin season!"

but you might find that other dresses look better. <3

I personally don't care whether something "suits" my skin tone or not. For me it's all about the clothes, so if something is really pretty I want it and I wear it. I've never noticed a piece of clothing looking strange with my skin.

I have noticed how nice pastel pinks look with my light greeny-brown skin though :) So I feel a little bit prettier in those. I like wearing white too because I feel it makes me look more tanned :)

If you love it and it doesn't bother you, then wear it :) I personally don't care what mainstream "beauty" advice tells me, I feel beautiful in clothes that I enjoy.

Lolita has a pretty limited colour scheme a lot of the time- sure dresses exist in lots of uncommon colours but it's mostly the same few colours over and over again, so lots of lolitas wear things that might not flatter their colouring 100% If you like those colours then go for it. There are some colours I avoid personally (like orange and yellow) but I think in general most lolitas don't care. They might notice if a colour suits you especially well, but probably most won't really notice if it doesn't.

I run into that problem a lot, but I've found that it doesn't really matter too much in lolita. If you really find yourself falling in love with a print in a colour that doesn't suit you, you can just buy the JSK or skirt version and wear it with a blouse or accessories in a shade that does compliment your skin tone. That way, the unflattering colour is visually separated from your skin, and it makes it a lot less obvious that it doesn't suit you.
