White tees, pastel or muted shades or occasionally black? I think you'd look just fine in these colors. There are loads of pretty pastels out this spring; many of us - at any age - don't find that certain loud colors flatter us. So why not avoid them? Tell these people they're free to dress however they want, and leave it at that.
Wear what makes you feel most comfortable in. If you don't like what you are wearing you tend to present yourself entirely differently. "You are what you wear?????" Shouldn't be true but I think there is some sense to that!!
wear what you wish, if you can. You could accessorize with a scarf or belt or something similar in a more vibrant colour, without wearing an entire outfit in that particular shade, if that would make them happier, I suppose.
Of course, there are some people who will never be happy, because they'll always find something to contradict or comment
ETA: for what it's worth, if that's a recent picture, I would never have guessed your age was more than mid-20's

do what I do ignore them and do what you want.
It is you that you have to please not them.

I am 65 and my mother still tries to tell me what color to wear and wants me to dye my hair. I have thin hair and the darker it is the THINNER it looks. I am not comfortable with my scalp showing! Mother does not care- she is so vain and it makes me look older- I am older! I understand.
I don't like wearing clothes in loud colors! I just don't. I prefer white tees, pastel or muted shades, or even black sometimes.
But lately, my Mom and Aunt has been on my case! They keep telling me that I'm still young enough to wear loud colors. Like bright pinks. To me, it's not a question of age, I just simply don't like wearing loud colors!
Even a friend of my Aunt's says that I dress 'old'! But I'm already in my 40s, I'm not that young anymore! They just don't get it! I have a good mind to tell that friend of my aunt's to keep the comments to herself! I will, the next time I see her! I'm just so mad and offended! What business is it of their's anyway!?
