Halter tops (not dresses) seem to make my bust look massive
Are you sure it wouldn't throw me out of proportion?
Flowing fabrics make sense. But again, how would that accentuate the waist?
So you have wide hips and are busty as well.
The best tops for you:
-have wide straps
-wrap-over tops (they lift and separate the bustline)
-blouses which are tight around the waist and loosens at the chest. Look for a tie right under the bust. Corset blouses don´t go well with wide hips.

You know what? This might help a little. I look really good in super purples, reds, all black, and white. Also orange, but more like burnt orange. Not hunter orange.
What does that cause me to fall under?
That sounds pretty winter to me.
based on your description I think that would make you what is called a "deep" winter. You're not limited to only these colours, but would you say that when you listed things like "red" and "super purples" that these were what you had in mind?
if you're still unsure do you mind posting or sending a pic?
if you have the money for it, i would recommend getting yourself a colour swatch. It's really convenient to have if you're shopping and you're a little unsure if an article of clothing the right kind of blue/red/etc.
