    I think my clothes are like this..
    35% black
    35% green
    10% blue
    20% other
    0% pink !!!

    I like to wear dark clothes. Much black when I am depressed and dark green when I am neutral. I also have alot of black makeup whenever I am not happy. When I am happy I use red, which aint so often. Never ever gonna wear pink clothes or anything else thats pink. :/

    Btw, the colors black and purple are the colors of a true goth. Read it in one of those girly-mags in school...
    Hey, don't look at me like that! The computers were already taken.

    Sooooo...... if i like black that means i have a dark personality or mourn or shy or blah blah. Well i would have to disagree because i'm not any of those above hehe :) I just think black fits in everywhere and people are used to it.

    The reason I believe many wear all black is because they're so insecure that they think that only their clothes (and perhaps accessories) can make them look "cool", intimidating, mysterious, etc. And when I say this I mean wearing all black even when it's summer, and when you're in a casual place, and life is going normally at the moment.

    My wardrobe has all the colors of the rainbow. As well as white and black and grey. (Yes, I have a pink shirt, and yes, perhaps that means I'm insecure as well.)

    Maybe I'm just color blind, because I don't dress in colors that reflect my mood. But I do think that dark and dull colors mean things like that, example:

    black= dark, depressing, foul, wicked, evil, demonic, etc.
    gray= bleak, indecissive, so-so, not so good, not so bad
    white=light feeling, euphoric,happy, bright(makes me sick)
    rainbow colors(blue, green, red, yellow, etc.)= depends on the shade darker means darker, brighter means brighter

    Somehow I managed to confuse myself, this happens quite a bit, hope you all understand what I'm saying.

    I don't wear any colour for a particular occasion. I used to wear black a lot, but since a few years I've switched to all sorts of colours. I often wear black pants and I have one black shirt. I have a lot of white clothing and a lot of dark blue. But my two favorite shirts are light blue and white. I dislike and don't have any yellow, red, green, pink, purple clothing.

    In the morning I just look at what's in my closet and what goes together. I don't really think of the mood I'm in.

    The shirt I'm wearing now is rainbow colored, and I'm a big fan of colorful things. Usually I wear blue (any shade except that damnable bright baby blue), grey, red or white.

    Black? Absorbs energy. White? Reflects it. Don't know what you get from that :D ;)

    Gah! Please! Colours don't reflect personality, a person wearing black doesn't have to be evil.
    Iam wearing whats fits me, and thats most colours, though I prefere black and yellow on shirts...And blue jeans, white underware...

    I think black is a beautiful colour like the night, I also like green, like the forest....

    This reminds me of the conversation about colours between Galavery, Jaheira and <CHARNAME> :)

    I wear light colored shirts when the weather is hot and dark color when cold. But I tend to have a lot of pastel colored shirts, like khaki, white, light pink, grey, light brown, light blue, etc. I prefer dark colored jackets such as black and army fatigue (olive green).

    Being of Chinese decend, I tend to avoid red (except on special occasions)... why, because you solicite a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" mock/joke greetings. In China, traditionally, wearing all white symbolizes mourning. While red and gold symbolizes happiness.

    Here in the Philippines, we wear all black for mourning. But times is changing, all white is also used for such occasions too. I remember 10 years ago, none of my relatives wear black except during incidents of death in the family. Now, we are free to wear black any time. But we tend to avoid wearing that color to parties hosted by Chinese.

    But setting traditions aside I find black to be an elegant color. And white top and black pants are probably my favorite combo.

    Fizity, why would you steal and wear underwear that has been worn by someone else?

    Colors are pyschologically tied to certain emotions that can be aroused from them.
    When babies are born, they primarily put boys in blue and girls in pink. Blue represents strength and Pink is supposed to be a more submissive color.

    Red and Yellow are very eye catching colors. Whether or not anyone likes them. That's why some restaurants (ie: Mcdonald's/Burger King) use those colors. It attracts attention to the restaurant.

    Lust is, one of the 7 Deadly Sins. Deadly Sins are - usually - represented as black. Langerie is lustful, so, pronomonally, black. Red langerie shows passion or love, but usually passion.

    Boxers are a whole lot more comfortable than women's underwear... And since the only other guy in my family is my dad, I thought it'd be better to steal them from my cousin. I washed them a good hundred times. ;) I think

    perhaps it also has to do with insecurity. If you are insecure about your looks you most likely don't wear bright reflecting colours. If you feel more comfortable you will start wearing brighter colours. (that might explain all the darker colours in my wardrobe ;) )
